I never read Frank Miller’s Sin City stories (comic books?) but I did enjoy the movie. Sin City is one of those digital-with-live-actors-not-really-animation movies that –for me– really worked. I was immediately struck by the power of the soundtrack, which showed off all the great voices: Powers Booth, Rutger Hauer, Mickey Rourke, Benicio Del Toro.
I didn’t see any punches pulled but wasn’t offended by the graphic violence. It was all in fun. I’m starting to resent paying $25 to see a movie (for two) but Jessica Alba’s cowgirl dance on the bar was just about worth it. Barb said I moaned aloud. [Sin City website]
