Sin City ★★★

Most of all, this movie looks great - the comic book style and use (or lack) of colours is visually brilliant. It's violent, it's gorey, it has a great cast with well suited roles, to say that I don't often enjoy most of their films, and it has a deeply thought out story line due to sticking close to the graphic novel it is based on, which is set out really interestingly. It's obvious that Tarantino had his influences, reminding me of both Pulp Fiction - the layout - and Planet Terror - the subtly provoked humour. I see it's appeal to males, but it wasn't really for me in the end.
