Frank Miller's Sin City was, in my opinion, one of the most beautifully plotted film of the year. Of course, I am rather partial as
I have been a fan of Frank Miller's artwork ever since his days as penciller for Marvel Comics' Daredevil . Unlike so many other
films that have been adapted from the comic book medium, Sin City remained faithful to the genre. In many ways, it was almost as if the storyboard
came to life. But, then, isn't that the way it should be ?
I'm not an actor, director or any kind of thespian, all I know is that Sin City suspended my disbelief. Bruce Willis' performance was, in my
opinion, astounding in it's concise, basic portrayal of a hardened police detective in what has to be the toughest beat around....Sin City. But the
show was stolen by Mickey Rourkes portrayal of a hard-fisted, hard-headed "brute". All I can say is, if you havn't seen Sin City.....see it. But
I should add that it is not for the faint of heart or someone who is, in any way, "sensitive" to violence, gore, and/or foul language. Again, Sin
City is an amazing film.
