New York Magazine (Vulture)
The visually stunning Sin City has grit to spare and a thrilling undercurrent of morality.
100
Sin City is brazenly, thrillingly alive.
88
ReelViews
The most visually inventive comic book adaptation to make its way to a movie screen.
80
Variety
For geeks, action freaks and sensation-seeking teenage boys of all ages, the price of admission will provide a one-way ticket to hard-boiled heaven.
80
Newsweek
It's gory stuff, but it's also a visually arresting blitzkrieg with action so bare-knuckled you'll leave the theater spitting out teeth.
80
The A.V. Club
Sin City draws on the cumulative history of both mediums, creating a pastiche that would have been technologically impossible even three years ago. Its creators invent a queasily intoxicating new world.
80
Dallas Observer
Rodriguez clearly assumes Sin City to be his "Pulp Fiction," his rambling portmanteau--a blending of disparate tales to form a complete, overwhelming epic.
58
Entertainment Weekly
Glued tightly from page to screen, Sin City is so seduced by the visual possibilities of sin that style becomes its own vice.
40
The Hollywood Reporter
Eye-popping yet ultimately thin and shallow as a page in a graphic novel.
40
Village Voice
Sin City lacks the human interest, not to be confused with humanism, that "Pulp Fiction" had in abundance. As if to underscore the fact, Tarantino guest-directed a scene. It's readily recognizable as the only one in which the dialogue has the slightest conviction.
