      David Germain Associated Press With a huge, well-chosen cast and the blessing of Miller, who was on set as Rodriguez's co-director, Sin City is a gloriously stylized world unlike anything you've seen before on screen. Apr 14, 2013 Full Review Richard Corliss TIME Magazine For all its astronomical body count, Sin City is brazenly, thrillingly alive. Apr 14, 2013 Full Review Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal While Sin City on screen evokes the same feeling of bottomless decadence and dread that the novels do, there is one crucial difference -- you can put the novels down. Apr 14, 2013 Full Review Justin Brown Medium Popcorn It's a beautiful looking film but it didn't give me enough to want to ever watch this again. The story was all over the place and kind of boring. Rated: 2/5 Apr 2, 2023 Full Review Brandon Collins Medium Popcorn Back when this was initially released, I would have rated this higher but the storylines and dialogue don't hold up well enough for repeat viewing. Visually it is stunning though. Rated: 2/5 Apr 2, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Rodriguez was never so energetic or creative behind the camera, and he hasn't come close to achieving something so inspired since. Rated: 4/4 Jul 29, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Nico B Some parts like the green screens and cgi aged, but it looks and feels still stunning, dirty and gritty. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Jay H Enormously entertaining. Stay away from the sequel, though. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/09/24 Full Review Vladimir D Ignore the ratings, this is a timeless piece of drama and action. I won't tell you anything else but watch this in its original form, NOT the extended. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/11/24 Full Review Joshua J All style, no substance. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/01/24 Full Review Tibor F First 10 minutes talk talk, nothing happens. Sped it up, nothing happens. Skipped to next film. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/29/24 Full Review Axel X When I first saw Sin City, I definitely wasn't a fan of it and I definitely gave a short riff after I saw it the first time. I have my other review of it that I wrote years ago in front of me right now. And I think I took some of it a bit more seriously than I should have. The second time I saw I enjoyed it a lot more than I did the first time. However this last time I saw it I gotta say I wasn't really as impressed as I was the second time. I kind of look at if Scott Pilgrim V.S. The World had a dark tone to it. It's weird to say this, but some of the things that bothered me about this movie the first time came up again. Like some of the actors are kinda terrible at acting. Go figure. But there are things that I did like about it the second time that still stuck with me this time. I find that one thing that STILL kinda bugs me is the physics of it. For whatever reason I'm okay with the fact that Marv is like Spiderman and Hulk combined with one another ripping off bars from solid concrete I presume and having the upper body strength of a gorilla, but when he's holding a guy's face to the asphalt of the road as he's driving and the guy's NOT DEAD that's where it gets to be a little bit ridiculous to me. Though I feel as though I definitely understand way more about this movie now than the first or the second time I watched it. It's not necessarily meant to have an airtight story, physics that makes sense or the GREATEST of acting jobs here. Though that last one would have added a bit more to it, but rather it's more meant to convey the look and feel of film noir I mean it has a lot of the cliches from it, dark lighting combined with gritty stories and characters. And the characters are this weird mish mash of people that you don't really expect being in a story like this, but somehow it works. Perhaps Quentin Tarantino was a bit more involved with the story with the adding of characters like Miho or what's his face who played Chibs in Sons of Anarchy. Though I don't really know for sure as I've never read any of the sin city comics. I liked it more the second time around because when I COULD get over the ridiculousness of it then you can appreciate it for what it is which is a more accomplished movie than the movie Hulk in trying to make a comic book into a movie as well as making some of the grittiest film noir. With a title like Sin City you know it's going to be full of stories that are depraved, where the good guys try to win but in the end they lose. Stories of corrupt senators and cops. Stories of murder mysteries where the killer has no real rhyme or reason. Stories of weird passion, lust and maybe a hint of love between lovers and ex-lovers. This makes me wish I'd seen more film noir stories before this, because I don't think much else will interest me after this. Though I hope I'm wrong. Sin City is an enjoyable flick. Though I'd probably only watch it again with a girlfriend or a group of friends. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Read all reviews
