Since most of us are very familiar with this film I figure we are just interested in the technical specifications to make sure it's worth spending the cash on. This is a bare bones release no extras and not the directors cut. The packaging and amazon description says the audio is just DTS but in actuality it is DTS-HD MA!

I live in the USA shipping just took 6 days with the cheapest shipping method. Very impressed with amazon.ca .

WOW! What an awesome film. It is based on 3 out of 7 Frank Miller books: #1, The Hard Goodbye, #3, The Big Fat Kill and #4 That Yellow Bastard. Also, fans will recognize the opening scene, as its the short story "The customer is always right". This film is amazing beyond description. The msot faithful comic book adaptation EVER. Why the four stars? Because the DVD will have nothing on it! I'd give the film 5, but this DVD itself is as naked as the girls of Sin City! So fans of Special Editions, and of course of Sin City: save your cash. Robert Rodriguez himself stated that there WILL be A Special Edition coming later. Just a warning....

Sin City as a recut edition, proves most entertaining, adding meat to the already great T-bone presented to us by Robert Rodriguez. More character moments, but they prove sometimes a bit more enlightening as they reveal a few new sides we didn't know of (for those who didn't read the comics, of course).

There's also a second disc which is loaded with special features, which is always a major selling point for me, as well as a DVD-sized re-print of the first Sin City comic book in its entirety. You have almost 2 hours-worth of visual special features while there are also commentaries...

It's always nice to revisit the grim, dirty and bloody stories from the city where everyone's a sinner... and this edition seems the perfect way to do so.

I have never read any of the comics this movie is based on, in fact I don't read comics period. But I loved this movie anyway. It was gritty and in-your-face and completely shocking. Even though most of the movie is black and white, there was just so much going on. It kept you on your feet from intro to credits. So take an awesome storyline, add a power cast of heavy hitter actors and you've got an equation for one kickass movie!!! Buy it, this is a must-have to anyone's collection.

Blu ray adds an element of excellence to this already fantastic film. The limited use of colors are highlighted with blu-ray plus the bone crunching, skin slicing, bone smashing sound effects are squeemishly delightful.

Great revenge movie with more violence and tittilation than you can ask for.

Noir at its best. Filled with black humour and, at times, truly horrific imagery. Wonderfully chosen cast who play their parts to the hilt. Definitley NOT for children.
