Sin City - Not Vegas

The other night I finally got around to watching Sin City. To sum it up, it was full of bad-assery. It was tough, gritty, and sometimes scarily violent. I really loved the noir-feel of it, where the men were as tough as they come, but in this case, so were most of the women. It featured a stand-out case, such as Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Clive Owen, Michael Clarke Duncan, Elijah Wood, and about a million others. Thankfully, most of them didn't stand out as stars, but rather filled the shoes of their characters perfectly. This was a great film, and while I haven't read Frank Miller's original graphic novels, I can easily see how people could call this a beautiful adaptation. It's almost literally a comic book transposed onto a film screen, featuring beautiful black and white shots, with the occasional splashes of color. Especially the color of blood. Lots and lots of blood. Sin City is super violent, but loads of fun. I loved it, and would easily watch it again.
