Extremely engaging and technically stunning, Sin City encapsulates you in its world and, when it’s over, makes you glad that it was all just a dream. Some may wonder if the film would still be as entertaining if it weren’t for the attractive visuals. But for me, as great as it looked, it was still the stories that I was enthralled by the most. Nonetheless, i couldn’t stop watching, and when the stories all tied in at the end I was overwhelmingly pleased.
The script is so deliberate and moves effortlessly throughout the well-paced story. And the direction is so well orchestrated as well. The performances are hit or miss, but all work for each respective character. While I’m not terribly partial to the shock-value stuff that Rodriguez is so well known for, I was able to see past it since the narrative was so captivating.
Although too graphic for many, Sin City immerses you in its fiction and demands your attention as you never see what it has in store for you around the corner.
