I just.... don't get it

I am utterly baffled by the good response that this movie has been getting. I've never read a comic book in my life, so I can't judge the "accuracy" of this movie's adaptation, but if this is what the comic book is like, then I don't want to read it.

This movie has no substance behind it. The characters are either sex objects, action heroes, or both. There are no stakes and I had zero investment into the characters or the story. A character can get beat up, shot several times, run over by a truck, and drowned and still end up fine if they are a main character. The story is not very interesting at all, and it goes in so many random directions that I have trouble remembering what happened and why, although I have a feeling that all this was done on purpose, so as to not get in the way of the stylized action. Speaking of which...

The black and white with small sprinkles of color gets old fast and it reminds me why almost all movies are in color. There is nothing visually interesting done with the small amount of color that is in the movie. The action is subpar at best, and a lot of it is just straight up bad. The voiceover is seriously annoying as well. I understand that noir films are supposed to have voice over and it's an artistic choice, but it serves no real purpose in this movie. Sure, sometimes it opens a window into the protagonist's mind, but most of the time it's just describing what we already know.

I just can't understand the praise this movie is getting.

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

The Beast Slayed

Movie Review: "Sin City" (2005)

A prologue scene of three minutes with Josh Hartnett as gentleman-killer on a rainy rooftop balcony tinted in stark-contrast Black & White HD cinematography of occasional striking color on the victim's red lips.

Divided into three episodes from graphic novel writer and illustrator Frank Miller, published in 1991/1992, starting out with Bruce Willis as Detective Hardigan in a hard-boiled good, bad cop episode, rescuing 11-year-old Nancy Callahan from the clutches of psychopathic maniac of a senator's son, performed by actor Nick Castle. The graphic violence has been pushed to such an extent that even the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) demanded de-colorization of exit wounds in gun wounds and knife slashes, which diminishes the picture's color theme structure established from the prologue on. For that reason, the visual quality of "Sin City" varies.

The execution of the production lets me feel the passion for source material by director Robert Rodriguez and co-director Frank Miller that searches in its visceral boldness few equals in U.S. American motion picture history.

The best episode comes then right away from running time 13 minutes to 48 minutes with Mickey Rourke as the heavy-hitter Marv, who goes on Sin City rampage tour to avenge the death of a one-night-stand love affair, where the balance of neo film noir blacks and whites gets infusions of blood-splattering proportions, which finishes to my entertainment satisfactions.

Episode three, starring Clive Owen as righteous cop Dwight, keeps heads and tension levels high in another storyline of revenge for another cop's abusive behavior against women. Dwight, portrayed by Clive Owen, stays cool in a magnificent shot interior car scene at night by guest director Quentin Tarantino at running time 68 minutes. The director makes full use of the digital color forces, ranging the wet window flashing from Blue over Green to Red, what brings the potential of "Sin City" to the screen, which has not been entirely making use of due to rating regulations and at times one sided directorial vision of just being an entertainment movie instead filling it also with art-house sophistication.

Before "Sin City" slights back the Hardigan Story in an 8-year flash-foward rescuing 19-year-old table dancing Nancy Callahan, performed by Jessica Alba, again from the senator's son transformed into an abomination as Yellow Bastard, where the picture carries through by a father-daughter like chemistry between Bruce Willis and Jessica Alba.

The HD cinematography also shot by director Robert Rodriguez comes along with a minimum of production design and further digital extensions especially in exterior wide shots, when the 120 minutes editorial keeps its pace to fulfilling finish of another staying cool Josh Hartnett performed gentleman-killer encounter in a hospital's elevator.
