    I just came back from an advance screening of Sin City, and I can tell you this is one salient reel of pitch of a film. Think of it as film noir amped up for a post modern century. It comes across like most of Frank Miller's writing, modestly fantastic for the comic environment, but steeped long and hard in the tradition of the underground crime writers of the '40's. Visually, the juxtaposition of the rich B&W with digitally-hued Technicolor makes it hard to take your eyes off the screen. This film was tailor made for most of the people who have been following Miller's writing for the past twenty odd years, brimming with many of his trademark elements and visual style that he, along with Messrs. Rodriguez and Tarantino, capture brilliantly. Not for more sensitive or under aged souls, Sin City will burn like a fire that you have to watch for everyone else.

    Saw it when it opened here last week. Wild movie. As Rotary said not for the under age ones or sensitive. The guy sitting behind me had 2 younger kids with him - I'm sure they had nightmares after watching this film. Would highly recommend for those of age.

    As a fan who bought the comics years ago when they were first printed I've seen it twice already and it holds truer to the originals that any other comic based movie - by far. They used the actual comics as the storyboards so it's no wonder. When you have the author and a phenomenal director who is a comic fan himself you have a recipe for one of the greatest films I've ever seen.

    The comics were drawn in black and white with each series having a theme color that was used in key parts. "A Dame To Kill For" which involved Marv used red, "That Yellow Bastard" with Hartigan used yellow and "The Big Fat Kill" with Dwight used blue.

    If you liked the movie you owe it to yourself to check out the comics because they're some of the best, most stylistic ever done. There's a trade paperback that collects all three in one edition which is less work and money than trying to track down all the originals :)
