Sin City (2005)

Sin City
Recut.Extended.Unrated
Two-Disc Collector's Edition





Trailer

I'm a huge fan of the Sin City books. I still have all the original issues as they came out and was such a huge fan of the art, writing and characters that I also eventually got the Trade Paperback just so that I would have something to read on long road trips if I was driving. So, when news came out that they were actually turning the comic book into a movie, I was a bit skeptical in how faithful they could remain to the source material. I really didn't even know if it was possible. When the Trailer was finally unveiled I was in with both feet. It looked better than anything I could have hoped for.

So, what about the movie itself? This is actually somewhat of a hard movie to review. If you are a fan of the books, you will love this. But I could see the average fan coming in cold to this one, that it might not be their cup of tea. They may marvel at the look of the film, or they may be completely turned off by it. They may also have issues with the dialog being to on-the-nose. I dunno. I am completely biased and I make no bones about it. I think Robert Rodriguez did a fantastic job making Sin City: The Movie a reality. So many things could have gone wrong here, especially the visuals.

The movie is made up of 3 stories from the comic book series: The Hard Goodbye, The Big Fat Kill and That Yellow Bastard. All of the stories are executed very well. But of the 3, I definitely think my favorite is Yellow Bastard. For those not in the know, it's the storyline with Hartigan (Bruce Willis), Nancy (Jessica Alba) and Roark Junior (Nick Stahl). But with that said, the one that steals the movie is  Marv (Mickey Rourke) in The Hard Goodbye. He owned it! The only negative I have with the movie is that Jessica Alba as a stripper refused to get naked. Bah!!

Even though I own the Recut.Extended.Unrated Two-Disc Collector's Edition, I would say this is a Rent for the average fan. Check out the movie and if you like it, definitely Buy the 2 Disc Set. By all means stay away from the bare bones DVD. Also, the Special Edition comes with a comic book tucked away nicely inside the set itself.

I bought the original when it first came out. Then a couple weeks ago walking down a Best Buy rack, the Blu-Ray was only $7.00. I snatched it up. I have not watched the extended cut yet.

Love this flick

Does the Blu-ray come with any additional bonus content? Comic Book? Anything?

Just the Extended Cut, which I have not seen

Theatrical and Extended.
