Sin City starring: Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Jessica Alba and Benicio del Toro tells the story of three people living in a horrible corrupt city. Hartigan (Bruce Willis) risks his life to protect a girl whom he saves from being raped. Marv (Mickey Rourke) is on a revenge spree to kill the murdered who killed his prostitute. And finally, Dwight (Clive Owen) works on trying to stop a war between a gang and the police. The stories themselves aren't jaw-dropping and incredible but the creators have mixed the orders of the stories so masterfully that it is very exciting and nothing is confusing.
This was a movie unlike anything I have ever seen. This movie takes the meaning of the genre "graphic novel movies" to a whole new level. I instantly fell in love with the noir style of the movie, the silhouettes and the effects used with the colours. I couldn't look away. It is a visual masterpiece.
Mickey Rourke steals every scene he is in and he is probably at his best in this movie. Bruce Willis has a mediocre performance, nothing about the acting will surprise you. For me personally, Clive Owen's character was the best. He is not a big guy that can throw people around but he is very shady and very cool. Without spoiling a lot, Elijah Wood's character may give you nightmares. This movie has an enormous ensemble and you will constantly be surprised throughout the movie.
Overall, I really enjoyed this movie. I admire braveness in filmmakers that break rules and I have to say this movie works. Frank Miller's best work indeed. It is everything you could wish for in a Frank Miller story directed by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. This movie certainly isn't for everyone but I would recommend it without a question.
Overall Score: 8/10
