There's a difference between being stylistic and putting a monochromatic color scheme into a blender, making it into a bizarre smoothie, and vomiting that up onto some celluloid. Unfortunately, Sin City is guilty of the latter.
One of the most unusual movies I've ever seen. Some geniunely affecting moments of drama are doled out throughout this bizarre action / comedy. Great performances all around. Sadly, the movie's ending let down the rest of the film (yes, I'm aware that it's an end-of-the-world movie, but the wasn't well presented or orchestrated). The final shot of the movie is a clear attempt at an exhilarating build-up, but unfortunately is ended up as a let-down.
How in god's name did this earn a 74%? Poorly-written drama and non-exhilarating action tries to engage the audience but fails completely. In fact, the film's superb actors give it their best, but the most interesting characters are either sidelined (Bryan Cranston) or barely in the film (Elizabeth Olsen and Ken Watanabe). Sadly, the main character is completely flat. I'm not sure whether this is due to Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the editing, or to the film's terrible script (I strongly suspect the latter, because Aaron Taylor-Johnson has shown his acting chops before). I would be completely okay with all of this if only the movie itself were entertaining on any level. Unfortunately, it was not. Admittedly impressive special effects could not solve the uninspired action sequences. The sound mixing, cinematography, and camerawork are all well done. Sadly, the script, acting, and poor character development let down the formal elements of the movie.
