SIN CITY

DVD Review by David Blackwell

DETAILS: 124 minutes, Making of featurette, previews

STUDIO: Dimension/ Troublemaker

RELEASE DATE: 8-16-2005

ANALYSIS:  SIN CITY is a violent and yet stylish film noir that is one of the most faithful adaptations of a comic book series.   Three mini-series (and a three page story) by Frank Miller are adapted for this movie while being directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.  The cast is amazing (Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Jessica Alba, Devon Aoki, and others).  Mickey Rourke as Marv kicks at me more impressively than it did when I first saw that part of the film in the theater.

MOVIE Review:  https://enterline2.tripod.com/sincity.html

VIDEO:  1.85:1 (Anamorphic)

The blacks, greys, colors, and whites may look good, but I notice more aliasing on this DVD compared to other recent Miramax and Dimension DVDS.

AUDIO:  English 5.1 Dolby Surround. English 5.1  DTS, French

Subtitles: English, Spanish

The sound is a knockout.   No complaints from me.   They even included a DTS track for DTS lovers.

SPECIAL FEATURES:  Not many extras here other than a brief Behind The Scenes featurette on SIN CITY which features interviews from cast and crew chatting about how they loved working on this movie or how they had to do it (and some behind-the-scenes footage).  Basically it is a teaser for the more extensive Behind The Scenes stuff you will see on the Special Edition DVD set of SIN CITY.  Also included on the DVD are previews for MINDHUNTERS, the 1967 SPIDER-MAN animated series, LOST Season One, and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES Season One.

MENUS/ MENU ART: Fantastic.

FINAL ANALYSIS:  If you just want the movie, but the DVD.  If you're waiting for the more extensive two disc SE due out in November, rent it or buy this release used.

Robert Rodriguez has said that the two disc Special Edition will include deleted scenes back into the stories (and each can be played on their own) and feature tons of behind-the-scenes extras.
