is one of the most visually impressive films I've ever seen.
It lurches from one over-the-top sequence to the next, literally
ripped from the pages of Miller's graphic novels, which inspired
the computer-created backdrops.
The movie revels in casual brutal excess
and creating a pulpy world.
This is a whole new film-going experience
that delivers something even the most hardened of movie-goers
hasn't seen before.
blew me away; it's tough to take in everything in just one sitting.
What's black & white and red all over?
Robert Rodriguez's uncompromising look
at Frank Miller's world of ultra violent film noir is quite possibly
the most inventive and refreshing film to come around in years--stark,
bleak, and at the same time fascinating.
It's a virtual who's who of actors and
anti-heroes--three stories loaded with sexy girls, visceral imagery,
and tough guys looking for vengeance.
This ain't no Chinatown.
The movie is produced and directed by Frank
Miller & Robert Rodriguez, who were obsesses with this literal-minded
screen translation of three various violent stories from the
pages of the Sin City comic books.
In one extreme story involving a cop, he's
tortured & double-killed & triple hacked until his head
is severed from his body and becomes a negotiation point, with
competing sinners out to collect it.
This is not my type of entertainment.
