Four tales of crime adapted from Frank Miller's popular comics, focusing around a muscular brute who's looking for the person responsible for the death of his beloved Goldie, a man fed up with Sin City's corrupt law enforcement who takes the law into his own hands after a horrible mistake, a cop who risks his life to protect a girl from a deformed pedophile, and a hitman looking to make a little cash.

Both Nancy (Jessica Alba) and Wendy (Jaime King) drive cars with the license plates "LEV 311". Frank Miller often puts this in his various stories for "favourite girl" character in that story. The number is a nod to his wife and frequent collaborator Lynn Varley, whose birthday is March 11th. See more »
When Marv is in the bathroom with Lucille, he has a cigarette in his right hand. In the wider shot, when he takes the pills, it is in his left. In the next shot, it is in his right again. See more »
She shivers in the wind like the last leaf on a dying tree. I let her hear my footsteps. She only goes stiff for a moment.

Just watched the Advance Screening last night and I must say that this movie pulls all the punches in violence. It deserves its hard R rating in the first five minutes and doesn't let up until the end credits roll. It has it all - bullets, boobs and be-headings - beautifully set in a grim atmosphere that really keeps you on the edge of your seat. All cast performances were excellent - especially Mickey Rourke's "Marv" character. Fans of the comic will not be disappointed in this film adaption. This movie is definitely not for the squeamish or faint-of-heart.
Sin City grabs you by the nuts and doesn't let go! A must see!
