Last Friday Karen and I went to see Sin City. Since then I have made several attempts to write about it without success.
I’m still a little stunned by this movie. Its scary, disturbing but yet funny at times. The bad guys are sometimes just lowly hit-men out to make a buck; others include cannibals and child molesters. Make no mistake, this movie hits all the evil person buttons. The good guys are still bad guys but do bad things for mostly good reasons.
Sin City is violent but the violence forms a big part of the world so it doesn’t seem out of place.
About the only conclusive thing I can say about this movie is that it is the most unique movie I have ever seen. For that reason alone, you should go see it too.
Update: I forgot to add one of my favourite quotes from the movie.
”I love hitmen. No matter what you do to ’em, you never feel bad.”
