Robert Rodriguezs take on Frank Millers Sin City looked stunning on the big screen. Never has a comic book movie so faithful translated its visual look from page to film, and Rodriguezs movie (with help from guest directors Miller himself and Quentin Tarantino) positively ate up the screen.
Furthermore, Sin City is the kind of film that could quite easily be tempered were it not translated correctly to disc format. But there was never any danger that it wouldnt be. The Blu-ray presentation of Sin City is quite brilliant, richly translating the visuals to a smaller screen with a level of detail thats nothing short of stunning.
The film itself is superb, too. Its basically three stories meshed together, although the whole collection is firmly stolen by Mickey Rourke. Never mind The Wrestler; this, for our money, was where the Rourke comeback trail started, and Sin City is notably poorer whenever hes out of view.
Matched with audio that delivers a broad and vibrant sound stage, Sin City is a very strong Bu-ray release, and an excellent demo too for the potential of high definition--Jon Foster
