Just Wow
21 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you have had the pleasure of reading Frank Millers Magnum Opus Sin City, then the story of Rats should be lodged in you memory. I know it was for me! for ages i sought out this film after hearing of its making and now seeing the final piece, i can safely say it is very accurate to the comic, and is that not what making a film adaptation about: accuracy. It is beyond me how they can make films from Comics and totally miss something out or change it because it seems odd. It is beyond me! but that is another comment. 'Rats' is worth watching simply for its bleak betrayal of the last days of what can only be described as a former Concentration Camp Refugee. Basically read the short in Booze, Broads and Bullets then watch the film Perfecto!
