‘Sin City’ review

“Sin City” – This adaptation of Frank Miller’s gritty and remarkably violent comics, directed by Robert Rodriguez in a nearly panel-by-panel style, is three mini-movies in one. The second, starring Benicio Del Toro’s head, and third, a gritty love story between Bruce Willis and Jessica Alba (“There’s wrong, and then there’s wrong, and then there’s this”), are worthy noir entries. But it’s part one that’s the real masterpiece, as battered muscleman Marv (Mickey Rourke) tracks down his lover’s killer.
