Sin City

Last night I went to see the movie Sin City, an adaptation of the Frank Miller graphic novel (comic) series of the same name. It was good, although not as good as my (admittedly high) expectations for it.

It was visually very interesting, a faithful frame-by-frame recreation of the graphic novels shot entirely digitally, but somehow the characters were often flat, and the dialogue didn’t always quite work.

It was also ultra-violent, although the comic-book “neo-noir” look took most of the sting out of the gory horror — which was fortunate, because I can be pretty squeamish!

But I have been thinking about the movie today, which is a sign that it might be growing on me… Perhaps I’ll rent it from Netflix when it comes out on DVD.
