  • Roger Ebert

    This isn't an adaptation of a comic book, it's like a comic book brought to life and pumped with steroids.

  • Mick LaSalle

    A movie unlike any other.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    The visually stunning Sin City has grit to spare and a thrilling undercurrent of morality.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    I loved it. Or, to put it another way, I loved it, I loved it, I loved it. I loved every gorgeous sick disgusting ravishing overbaked blood-spurting artificial frame of it.

    Sin City is brazenly, thrillingly alive.

  • Desson Thomson

    It's a guaranteed must-see for its generation. Sin City has a long, long shelf life ahead.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    Two hours and six minutes has never seemed so much like two and six-tenths seconds. It's pure pulp metafiction.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    Some things in Sin City are almost too much to watch: the violence, the cruelty, the irredeemable evil. But it's irresistibly magnetic because it serves as a barely distorted mirror to our world.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Sin City is the first mainstream American picture I've seen this year that feels even remotely brash or original. It's a hard, viciously funny little movie, one with all the subtlety of a billy club. But there's artistry here.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Honestly, this ultra-noir adaptation of Frank Miller's black-and-white cult comic series is a visual feast ripped straight from the original medium's blood-soaked pages.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The worst thing I can say about this savage, sexy and ferociously funny screen translation of three stories from Frank Miller's Sin City series of graphic novels is that it's too much of a good thing.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Sin City is an evil place, full of awful people, an obsessive movie full of monomaniacal tough guys. Yet when Miller and Rodriguez move it into gear, noir lives.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    Occasionally very funny, the picture tends to coast on its cosmetics. A first-rate script might have made it a twisted masterpiece.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Tarantino may have nicked the title first, but this is the real ''Pulp Fiction," with all the drama and the dead ends that implies.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The most visually inventive comic book adaptation to make its way to a movie screen.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Aaron Hillis

    A rough-and-tumble magnum opus of digital filmmaking that thrillingly basks in the sick, slick, sexy and quick-witted excesses of its imaginatively mutant stylizations.

    Premiere Full Review
  • KJ Doughton

    Rodriguez slams down the sledgehammer with so much brutal, punishing force, there's no room to breathe.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    For the guys it's Rodriguez's best film by far and a treat for fans of good-looking girls in black-and-white, of classic film noir and of imaginative ultra-violence.

    Empire Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Sin City draws on the cumulative history of both mediums, creating a pastiche that would have been technologically impossible even three years ago. Its creators invent a queasily intoxicating new world.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    Rodriguez clearly assumes Sin City to be his "Pulp Fiction," his rambling portmanteau--a blending of disparate tales to form a complete, overwhelming epic.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Devin Gordon

    It's gory stuff, but it's also a visually arresting blitzkrieg with action so bare-knuckled you'll leave the theater spitting out teeth.

  • Todd McCarthy

    For geeks, action freaks and sensation-seeking teenage boys of all ages, the price of admission will provide a one-way ticket to hard-boiled heaven.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    Sin City snaps, crackles and pops like no graphic novel ever brought to the screen. Mixing live-action with computer-generated images, it looks like the novels, talks and bleeds like the novels, is as muscular and voluptuous as the novels - and it leaves you breathless as only a movie can.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    This is noir on steroids, cartoonishly ultra-violent and drawing inspiration from Mickey Spillane novels and E.C. comics of the '50s.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Sin City gives sin a great name -- it's never been more plentiful or looked so gorgeous.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    But once you're good and drunk on the look, details like the tin-eared tough-guy dialogue (which sounds especially stilted issuing from flesh-and-blood mouths) don't seem so important.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Sin City has been made with such scrupulous care and obvious love for its genre influences that it's a shame the movie is kind of a bore.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Rodriguez's evident delight in the form make this a worthwhile piece of eye candy.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Sin City is always moving on to the next thing, and despite surprisingly good work from its large cast (especially Rourke and Owen, who are both outstanding), the picture feels synthetic and artificial.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Dan DeLuca

    To say that Sin City is a guy movie - and an often brutally misogynist one, at that - would be an understatement.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Glued tightly from page to screen, Sin City is so seduced by the visual possibilities of sin that style becomes its own vice.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Sin City is a seedy tribute to rugged masculinity disguised as a rogue's gallery, all the better to please college boys who like their sentimentality slicked with grunge.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    After half an hour spent drooling over its visual splendors, I found the movie every bit as sickening as its creators intended it to be, minus the kicks they so palpably got out of making it.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    For a relentlessly violent and exploitive noir knockoff, Sin City is mystifyingly flat and static - cartoonish, even, if you want to get tautological about it.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    What binds and clads the new movie most thoroughly, however, is not storytelling but the high pressure of atmosphere.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Eye-popping yet ultimately thin and shallow as a page in a graphic novel.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    Sin City lacks the human interest, not to be confused with humanism, that "Pulp Fiction" had in abundance. As if to underscore the fact, Tarantino guest-directed a scene. It's readily recognizable as the only one in which the dialogue has the slightest conviction.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Everything here has been done better in other books, other movies. The lone remarkable thing is the level of violence, which exposes the cowardice and hypocrisy of the Motion Picture Association of America's ratings system.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • William Arnold

    The attainment it achieves is in the depths of pointless, mean-spirited exploitation.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Mr. Rourke's performance is quite phenomenal, a case of unquenchable talent bursting the bonds of dehumanized artifice.
