Sin City Pre-screening review!

Hey hey - a coworker of mine got free tix to this; I couldn't make it but here's his comment this morning:

Quote:
"The preview last night was awesome. They had security at the door asking if you had recording devices or camera phones. I wish I had my camera once I sat down to take a picture of the cop using night vision during the movie to spot bootleggers.

This review is pretty spot on. http://www.cnn.com/2005/SHOWBIZ/Movi...ity/index.html

If you’re in the “Hard-core action junkies, comic book geeks and the young male movie-going demographic” indicated in the review you’ll love it. They could have tied the stories together better, but I liked the serial feel to it."

I have seen several clips, and the one thing I can say is that it is visually stunning.

Absolutely. . . check out this link, comparing the panels in the graphic novel to the scenes in the movie:

LoL - I give reviews zero weight. A weak plot in a movie made from a serial graphic novel? pfffft.

Maybe it will make my old sin city comics worth something (probably not )

It was great! I'm horrible at reviews, so I'll let others tell you about it, but my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

For those that watched it...I'm thinking back over the movie--were there any swears in the movie? (I don't need to know what they were ) I know they didn't drop the f bomb, but now that I think about it I don't think they swore at all.
