This week's reviewed movie is:
Sin City

Sin City 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.

Sin City blew me away; it's tough to take in everything in just one sitting.

What's black & white and red all over? Sin City!

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.
