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.Written by
During an interview, Jessica Alba spoke candidly about having always been adamant about her stance against getting naked onscreen. When she arrived on the set of this movie, the actress wasn't too happy to find out she'd be playing a stripper. Alba is notorious for her "no nudity" clause in her contracts. And her reasoning is pretty point-blank: "I don't want my grandparents to see my boobs. That's it. It would be weird at Christmas. And, I mean, really, if you look at the movies I have done, getting naked would never 'elevate' the picture." And as for her Sin City role, she managed to get by performing as a stripper without ever taking her clothes off. Though it did irritate a lot of her fans who thought they'd finally get to see her naked on screen. See more »
As soon as Hartigan realizes he was setup to find Nancy, he tries to leave unnoticed so Junior doesn't know who she is.But Hartigan didn't know what she looked like, he just asked for Nancy.

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!
