Frank Millerâ€™s Sin City is just a fun action packed movie. Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino all did their part in directing sections of this movie. It is highly stylized so that it looks more like a graphic novel. It is very violent, but again so is the graphic novel. This movie is also packed with a lot of star power including Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Jamie King, Benicio del Torro, Alexis Bledel, Josh Hartnet and Rudger Hauer. Itâ€™s basically snap shots of this city told in little vignettes, which is great because you can watch them all and there are a couple of tie ins between them or you can just watch a couple. My favorite is the one with Mickey Rourke getting revenge for a murdered hooker.
The violence is over the top but thatâ€™s the style. Itâ€™s also a darker film, literally its kind of black and white with shots of color splashed in. The acting isnâ€™t great but it almost seems better that way. There is also a lot of nudity in it and I think there are at least two castrations, maybe more. But itâ€™s fun and campy and doesnâ€™t take itself too seriously.
