There is no justice without sin

Watched Sin City over the weekend. Sin City is a brilliant movie adapted from Frank Miller's collection of graphic novels about an imaginery town called Basin City. Basin City is also called "Sin City", because it is a violent city where the police department is as corrupt as the streets are deadly. "Sin City" is infested with criminals, crooked cops and sexy dames, some searching for vengeance, some for redemption and others, both.

The movie follows three stories: The first part based on "Sin City" is a story about a soon-to-be-retiring policeman called Hartigan (Bruce Willis) who is incarcerated for a crime he didn't commit.

The central character of the story is Marv - a tough-as-nails and nearly impossible to kill street fighter who goes on a rampage of vengeance when a beautiful woman, Goldie (Jaime King), he sleeps with for only one night is killed while lying in bed with him. This story, which is based on "That Yellow Bastard", shows how Marv joins hands with a group of prostitutes (which also includes Goldie's twin sister) to avenge the death of Goldie.

The third part of the story is based on Frank Miller's "The Big Fat Kill". The story is about an ex-photographer called Dwight (Clive Owen) who accidentally kills a hero cop called Jackie Boy (Benicio Del Toro) and has to cover it up.

After watching Sin City, I can't wait for Sin City 2 to be released! Sin City 2 is based again on Frank Miller's "A Dame to Kill For". The story follows Dwight, as he is experiencing some problems when him and his girlfriend, Ava Lord, get reunited. Meanwhile Nancy wants to avenge Hartigan's death by going after the Roarks. In this film, we also get to explore some details about Hartigan's past.
