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 (Jaime King), 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
Although the action happens in the fictional Basin City, a replica of New York City's Chrysler Building can be seen in the background when Marv is running by the rooftops. See more »
Gail's earrings, although supposedly the same pair through the entire movie, are two different pairs. One pair is a clip-on which she wears backwards, with the ear pad in the front instead of the back. These are worn high on her earlobes so you can see her pierced hole beneath them. Later, after she is kidnapped by Manute, the earrings are pierced with fishhook posts. After the girls take down the mob, she is back to wearing the reverse clip-on pair. The earrings were very long and dangly and would have been a potential hazard in an action scene. To avoid tearing the actress's lobes the two pairs were used. 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.

December 2005 DVD reissue included an extended, reedited version of the film. The four story lines were separated into individual short films, with about seven minutes of additional footage added, marketed as approximately 25, but about thirteen of those minutes are credits added to each story and five come from marketing exaggeration.

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!
