Product Description

The two-disc edition of Sin City easily makes the earlier single-disc theatrical-cut release obsolete by including the regular theatrical cut on the first disc, recutting the movie into four extended segments on the second disc (separated by story line), then piling on an impressive load of bonus features. But there's a catch. Billed as "Recut, Extended, Unrated," with "over 20 minutes" of new footage, the new set's four separate stories are extended by only about 6.5 total minutes of movie action (see details below in "What's New"); the rest of the added running time is the splashy new title shots (named by the title of the story or book) and the four minutes of credits that run at the end of each segment. Each addition makes the movie even closer to the comic books, and these extended segments are generally preferable to the theatrical equivalents (unfortunately, there's no Play All option), but don't expect the same impact as Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings extended editions. And although this version is unrated, the only risqué addition is a bit of violence from Miho that's no worse than the rest of the crazy violence in the film.

How Are the Bonus Features?
Robert Rodriguez has always loved DVDs, so the bonus features are extensive. On the first disc, there is somehow room for the theatrical cut of the film with its DTS track (the extended versions have only Dolby 5.1), two commentary tracks, an alternate audio track with a live audience in Austin, Texas, an interactive map of characters and locations, and 47 minutes of featurettes covering Frank Miller, Quentin Tarantino, cars, costumes, props, and special effects. The first commentary is Rodriguez and Miller discussing the concepts and the cast. The second commentary is mostly by Rodriguez, but Tarantino drops in briefly for the scene he directed (with Clive Owen and Benicio Del Toro in the car), as does an enthusiastic Bruce Willis for his segment.

The Tarantino scene gets a lot of attention on the second disc as well, in a 14-minute take in which he can be heard coaching the actors. Also on the disc are Rodriguez's usual "flic school (among the topics is how scenes were created by merging footage of actors who never actually met), footage of Bruce Willis's band performing in Austin at the time of the shooting, and another Rodriguez cooking school (this time it's breakfast tacos). But the most interesting feature is the "green screen version" of the film: the entire film as it was shot in front of the green screen, sped up to play in only 12 minutes. You can see the actors (in color!) interacting only with the props and each other. Last, there's a DVD-sized complete comic book of The Hard Goodbye.

What's New in the Extended Version?
"The Customer Is Always Right" (the opening sequence with Josh Hartnett and Marley Shelton) has no new footage, but now goes straight into the one-minute epilogue with Hartnett and Alexis Bledel that closed the theatrical cut. "The Hard Goodbye" (with Mickey Rourke as "Marv" ) has two new sequences totaling about two minutes: Marv encounters his mother and finds his gun, and talks to Weevil in the club. In "The Big Fat Kill" (with Clive Owen and Benicio Del Toro), some short dialogue is restored, along with another wicked slice by Miho (Devon Aoki)--about a minute total. "That Yellow Bastard" (with Bruce Willis and Jessica Alba) has about 3.5 new minutes: there are more visitors to Hartigan's hospital bed, including his wife and a nurse; Carla Gugino's Lucille character comes to assist Hartigan when he wants to get out of jail (probably the best addition); and Mr. Shlubb and Mr. Klump have some more lines. --David Horiuchi

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 .

Not being into comic books much, and thinking this movie would be nothing more than stylized tripe - I stayed away from it till now. If one's like me seeing those Norman Rockwell type pictures with a young boy under the blankets with a flashlight voraciously reading his comic book, this movie will make you live that depiction! Much like Pulp Fiction, the movie centers on four characters that seemingly have no connection to one another. Yet, they all have moralistic values among the seediness and corruption in the fictitious realm of Sin City. At first I was a bit dismayed, as the characters seemed to get killed off, then on to the next story. But low and behold, it's hard to keep a good man dead. Mickey Rourke steals the show for me, as this oversized ugly brute named Marv seeking vengeance for the death of the girl that cared for him named Goldie. Bruce Willis is in his element as the 'good cop' who saves a young girl from a maniacal rapist with political powers. Clive Owen is also great as the savior for the 'women of the night', who get sold out to crooked cops and mob business. Certain paths do brush with one another, and like Pulp Fiction; starts solidifying the stories and this Sin City that they're taking place in. So again, not knowing anything about the cult comic books beforehand, I was pleasantly seduced into it all. Fans of the print versions maybe better prepared and/or scrutinizing. What is really impressive is the look of the movie. Excellent artistic design and blending 'green scene' acting into this comic book landscape. For all the violence, sex, and gory grimness, there is an alluring renascence beauty to it all. Whether you're a fan of comic books or not, action and violence or not, or think the actors are good or not. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by this movie, and will appreciate it for time to come.

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....

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on April 18 2005
Format: DVD
The nights are cloudy, the alleys are dark, the men are dangerous, bars are smoky and femmes are fatale. "Sin City" is a thing of dark, bloody beauty.

It certainly says something if a graphic novel author helps out with a movie... especially if that creator swore he'd never let it be adapted. That is only one of the things that makes "Sin City," the adaptation of Frank Miller's comic, such a fascinating film.

"Sin City" is actually made up of three stories: In the depths of Basin (Sin) City, scarred hulk Marv (Mickey Rourke) sleeps with a beautiful prostitute, Goldie (Jaime King), only to find her dead beside him the next morning. Enraged, he goes on a killing spree to find her murderer, and learns that sinister cannibal Kevin (Elijah Wood) is responsible. But there's a powerful figure behind Kevin, who calls the shots.

Elsewhere in Sin City, Dwight (Clive Owen) does his best to defend Gail (Rosario Dawson) and the other Old Town prostitutes. But when Dwight kills a crooked cop, he has to somehow cover up the crime. And Hartigan (Bruce Willis), a cop with a failing heart, goes out of his job with a bang: He rescues little Nancy Callahan from a child molester who happens to be a senator's son. Hartigan is jailed, and when he gets out, he finds that Nancy (Jessica Alba) has grown into a lasso-twirling stripper. But the senator's son -- nicknamed Yellow Bastard -- is still after her.

"Sin City" is one of those few comic book adaptations that doesn't seem... well, cartoonish. Sure, it's the very image of noir, but the grim tone and grey characters are very real. It's not a movie for the fainthearted, but whoever enjoys the films of Quentin Tarantino (who directed one scene here) will surely be blown away.
