msmichel's rating of the film Sin City

A sublime exercise in how to really do a comic adaptation from creator Frank Miller and director Robert Rodriguez. The creative juices are running at full steam here from all parties with a visual aesthetic that still impresses nine years on. Performances are pulpy, steamy and earnest with memorable turns from Rourke, Owen, Wood, Alba and Willis. ' take away his weapon..then you take away his other weapon..'
