Sin City - Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller and Quentin Tarantino direct an amazing cast of big –screen favourites (Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Brittany Murphy, Benicio Del Toro, Rosario Dawson and more!) in this acclaimed and visually stunning hit that’s straight from the pages of Miller’s hop series of “Sin City” graphic novels
Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For - Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite to bring Miller’s “Sin City” graphic novels back to the screen in SIN CITY 2: A DAME TO KILL FOR. Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants in this visually stunning thrill ride. With an all-star cast including Eva Green, Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Powers Boothe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven and Dennis Haysbert.
Robert Rodriguez’s take on Frank Miller’s Sin City looked stunning on the big screen. Never has a comic book movie so faithful translated its visual look from page to film, and Rodriguez’s movie (with help from guest directors Miller himself and Quentin Tarantino) positively ate up the screen.
Furthermore, Sin City is the kind of film that could quite easily be tempered were it not translated correctly to disc format. But there was never any danger that it wouldn’t be. The Blu-ray presentation of Sin City is quite brilliant, richly translating the visuals to a smaller screen with a level of detail that’s nothing short of stunning.
The film itself is superb, too. It’s basically three stories meshed together, although the whole collection is firmly stolen by Mickey Rourke. Never mind The Wrestler; this, for our money, was where the Rourke comeback trail started, and Sin City is notably poorer whenever he’s out of view.
Matched with audio that delivers a broad and vibrant sound stage, Sin City is a very strong Bu-ray release, and an excellent demo too for the potential of high definition--Jon Foster --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

That is the word for this film - glorious. Filmed with techniques and a style that haven't been used for a long time, Sin City presents three stories that, whilst not consecutive or concurrent, are nonetheless compelling. Each actor lived their character so deeply I could believe that this was all they ever were, who they had ever been. Despite the previous hits, both film and telelvision, spread between Willis, Owen, Rourke and Alba (as the easiest faces to identify), even my Sin City mad friend could see no one else when they went home to read the books!
This film is a rule breaker. The last film I saw that involved thought as an important feature of the script was Dune. As much as I love Frank Herbert's work, I was completely in awe of the way the three directors matched unspoken dialogue with fantastic colour technique to provide a thrilling, astounding vacation into a world that is both different and similar to that in which we live. Black and white filming is mostly restricted to flashbacks within any genre but here it is used to effect, making even the most bloody of scenes somehow softer.
I'm sorry to say I was not impressed with Kill Bill...yet Tarantino's scene was not only bloodless but hilarious. There is a wonderful amount of dark humour to be found within this delightful film - delightful as a study for media students, as the final pleasure for fans of the books and even for those who have never read them before. I am in the last catergory. And I can assure everyone, I loved this film so much I'll happily watch any others that are screened.Read more ›
the first dvd region 2 release had one solitary extra. a ten minute featurette. the region 1 version had lots, but this version never appeared in the uk. so imagine my surprise when walking into HMV for a browse the other week as I had a few minutes to spare, and finding this had finally come to region two!
And it was worth the wait.
there are two discs. the first contains the cinema released cut of the film, and the following extras:
three commentaries. one by rodriguez and tarantino. one by rodriguez and frank miller. and the audience commentary, which is a recording of how the audience at the premiere reacted. shouting and cheering, mostly.
There are lots of documentaries, most of which run ten to fifteen minutes:
how it all went down: convincing frank miller to let the film be made
a piece about the scene tarantino directed
documentaries about the cars, props, costumes and make up.
Two different cinema trailers for the film.Read more ›
Expect to meet hookers, mercenaries, hit men, good cops, bad cops, strippers and thugs in Sin City. This tells three stories, that are ingeniously subtley linked together.
The most interesting story is Bruce Willis' as Hartigan. A cop who protected a little girl when she was younger, and in a cruel twist of fate has to protect her again when she is older (and played by Jessica Alba). It's the most detailed story, with the best character development.
The best character, however, is Mickey Rourke's Marv. A tough, unbeatable and ugly man who is out to avenge the death of a hooker who gave him things he had never dreamed of. It's a slightly simple story, but it's effective, violent, and unlike the other stories in the film, filled with dark humour.
Clive Owen is the weakest main character. He plays Dwight with a lot of gusto, but the character doesn't have the same heart that the others does, as he tries to stop Benicio Del Toro's troublemaker. This story also includes the infamous scene directed by Quentin Tarantino, where Dwights dead body starts talking again. There's nothing wrong with Tarantino, he's a great director, but in Sin City, his scene feels out of place. It doesn't flow with the rest of the film, and jars you out of the mood. It still is an interesting scene, however.
Of course, there are also some brilliant baddies. Elijah Wood's cannibal is creepy, while Nick Stahl relishes in the dirtyness of Yellow B######.
This DVD is sadly lacking in the extras department.Read more ›
