Not your normal movie. Was it good? Yes, but not epic. If I never see it again, that's just fine. Is it worth a watch once? Yes
As much as drawing comics is a piece of art, that much the same stands for this movie. I was never much into comics, but this made me love them. The visuals, the colour blend, the acting, the actors, the story rotations... just beautiful

Sin City is one of the first films that finally got the realism of animation/cartoon mixed with black and white film-making right. It's a visual masterpiece and probably one of the greatest of all time.Directors Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez hit this one out of the ball park.The all star cast of Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Bruce Willis and Jessica Alba was perfectly cast and a joy to see in this setting. Excellent screenplay and an amazing overall experience. This film is a must see!A perfect 10/10 from me!
Robert Rodriguez assembles an all-star cast for this grimy, bullet-laden, and rather depressingly downbeat film noir offering, which offers slim, testosterone-fuelled plot lines and violence that brims over the edge at every opportunity. To say too much is to spoil the effect; suffice to say that the black and white movie looks brilliant, with engaging scripting and fantastic acting from the principal line-up, and really puts across the look and feel of a hard-knuckle comic book.The casting is brilliant, with only a dodgy turn from a miscast Clive Owen ruining things; Bruce Willis's hardbitten cop is another fine addition to his stellar career whilst an unrecognisable Mickey Rourke has his best comeback in ages. The girls kick ass and the villains are slimy; in particular the loathsome bad guys are the best parts in the film. There's Nick Stahl as creepy paedophile the Yellow Bastard; Elijah Wood as a fantastic cannibalistic serial killer, and finally Benicio del Toro as a slimy woman-hater. The violence is endless and bone-breaking, with limb-lopping galore and all manner of gruesome torture to engage the crowd. Not sure of the rewatchability of the piece but for the first viewing, SIN CITY is a breath of fresh air.
