Over the last 3 years we have seen Spiderman, Hellboy, the Punisher, Hulk and a few more but, Sin City took way too many leaps of faith.  If you like comics, you may or may not like this one. 

A comic book is one thing.  A motion picture is another.  This comic should never have been made into a film.  In “Sin City” anything and everything goes: EVERYTHING.

There are many gruesome films but Sin City is plain awful.   True, there are many gruesome and violent movies out there that depict the dregs of society and the most heinous of crimes, but seeing creepy Elijah Wood as a cannibal is absolutely mortifying. He is already creepy as Frodo in the Lord of the Rings. 

The whole movie is filled with degenerates, other than Clive Owen and Bruce Willis that try to reduce crime.  Violence is non-stop throughout each sequence.  Different stories are running through out the movie filled with new faces to Hollywood and some of which are veterans.   

And we wonder why high school kids dress the way they do?  This is definitely a good example of why.  It’s different when they want to dress up like Willy Wonka, but not in fish nets and a leather clad suit.  Not Good.
