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
At 20:22, when Dwight contemplates Marv being born in the wrong century, he mentions that they would have "tossed girls like Nancy to him". This is historically incorrect, as gladiators and fighters preferred women with curves and a voluptuous figure, not thin and scrawny. This was based on the belief women could reproduced more children. See more »

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!
