(USA) Directed by Mark Waters. Starring Jim Carrey, Carla Gugino, Angela Lansbury, Ophelia Lovibond. Category I.
"Sin City" is a big-screen version of a comic book that looks and acts like a comic book. This is a good thing. The men speak as if they just stepped out of a 40s pulp-fiction novel. The women look like they stepped out of "Playboy." The storyline unfolds like "Pulp Fiction." If you treat the excessive violence as - you guessed it - comic bookish, you'll have heaps of fun.
