5If you loved the movie you'll love the book..., Aug 4, 2023
If you know a decent movie when you see one, you'll love this book on the making of Sin City. It explains how the movie was taken from graphic novel to screen. It has quotes from the cast and crew, the screenplay in it's entirity, as well as some awesome pictures. It goes into detail about the wardrobe and cars in the movie, and how they achieved the comic-book style that they were going for. Plus, almost every page has a page from the graphic novel in the background, so if you've never read the original Sin City you pretty much can by buying this book (If your eyesight's good enough, that is).

5immaculate, Aug 2, 2023
one of the most beautiful publications i've seen, the pictures are immaculate quality! the book is comprised of excerpts from the comics and interviews with key players (mainly robert and frank). it is a fine collectable, packed full of pictures of stills in various stages of production (from a frame of the comic, to a blue screen image, to the final composite). published by rodriguez's own publishing company, which explains the extraordinary quality on every page. the book also has a beautiful hardcover with matte finish. the book is also quite large, and definately great value for the price.

5Sin And The City, Jun 24, 2023
As a fan of comic book maverick Frank Miller's work, I was very excited when I found out that his popular anthology series, called Sin City, was going to be made into a feature film. And then I wondered just how director Robert Roddriguez was going to translate the gritty noir material for a very difficult medium. With help from Miller himself, the two men managed to make it work, laying my fears to rest within the first 10 minutes. Thanks to a great cast, a stunning visual style, and great script, the esscence of the original material is kept intact. While at the same time creating something unique.

For this book, Sin City-The Making Of The Movie, Miller and Rodriguez take you on a great backstage tour. From the screenplay, which includes material from three of the books, the original "Sin City", "That Yellow Bastard", and "The Big Fat Kill" Like the film itself, the "exclusive" behind the scenes photography in the book is a feast for the eyes. I also enjoyed reading the perspectives of the casr on the film and Miller's books. Artwork, concept designs, and additional commentary by the crew riund out the 272 page book.

Its an all inclussive resource on how the movie got made and the comic book series that inspired it. Fans of Sin City will eat this stuff up, while others might not want to bother, that is unless you are into books like this, regardless of the film.

4a bit too analog for something so digital., May 1, 2023
If you're a Frank Miller fan I think you'll love this book. If you're a Robert Rodriguez fan you might want to wait for the DVD.

In this book you'll find some great photography of the actors and scenes from the movie (no nudity). You'll find the entire script, which along with the photos accounts for 75% of the book.

The other 25%: The cast and crew pat each other on the back a lot. A number of comic book drawings are presented alongside the same scene in the movie. There's a good overview of the creation of the makeup effects, custom weapons, costumes and jewelry.

What's missing is a discussion of the digital process. There are a couple green screen photos in color, but most set photos are in black and white. There's no mention of the software used to create anything nor the companies or artists involved in that creation. Since so much of this movie was created in the computer I found that a little odd. If that's what you think you're buying then don't.

Perhaps they thought computer stuff was too technical and not as interesting as showing the casting process for the weapons etc. You decide.

If you love the movie and Frank Miller I think you'll be happy with this book. The hardback makes a nice coffee table book for the household without young children.

5Great insight on a great film., Apr 15, 2023
This book is really awesome. It has the script for each story in the movie, great behind the scenes pictures, cast and film makers thoughts on the project, all of the different posters they put out to promote the movie, and just a bunch of great stuff. This book is definitely well worth the money, I spent $30 on it at Borders, so I suggest you buy it from here for such a great bargain.
