Not Bad, Definitely Worth a Look At
4 September 2005 | by (nowhere) – See all my reviews

I found out that this existed when I was surfing through Frank Miller's IMDb page, and so I decided to check it out.

With the google search: rats: a sin city yarn, I was able to find it very easily (6th down).

Rats: a film only three minutes but still contains everything a good film needs. Drama, suspense, (etc.) and a little bit of Frank Miller humor.

It has the same gritty feel as the Sin City film, which is surprising because this is only a fan short. (Although the Sin City film is also a fan's creation) The director needs a pat on the back for making a thoroughly enjoyable film which and should be viewed by any one interested. Check it out.
