I cannot describe the hatred for this movie Sin starring Gary Oldman and Ving Rhames. I was looking at the reviews at Rotten Tomatoes and Amazon and what do they think of it? By god, they just despise it! Some people say it's crap and it's not good what so ever and they think the story in this is absolute sxxt but personaly I think this is a good film about Ving Rhames who is a retired cop with a weak arm who is desperate to rescue his sister from Gary Oldman, also love the fight duel in church and the chase scene between Gary and Ving, don't get me wrong. Now I understand why people hate this movie and I know it's not for everybody's taste so it's just my opinion though.

A crime thriller with a story that ought to be compelling. Ving Rhames delivers a stilted performance beside king of bad guys Gary Oldman. Oldman and the cinematography drag this story through its first hour like a dead weight. Its only in the last twenty minutes of the film that anything grabs your attention. Heavy on the metaphors but a bit light on the acting abilities.

This story had good potential but its delivery is stiff and unwieldy, must see for Oldman die hards. For hilarity the main character our Eddie Burns (Ving Rhames) has a change in his disability- from not being able move the limb at all -to (minus the hand now) being able to control the limb almost fully! Who missed that whooping great bit error in continuity?

If you're a diehard fan of Gary Oldman's trademark lunacy, consider Sin a must-see.

(2003) Sin
THRILLER/ DRAMA

Straight to rental and a waste of great acting talent starring Ving Rymes as ex-cop Eddie Burns with a busted left arm. He also happens to have a sister Kassie (Kerry Washington) who acts like a dope sniffing prostitute. Upon Eddie trying to convince his sister to come back home. She's then gets intercepted by Charlie Strom (Gary Oldman) who's seeking some retribution. The movie then centers on this past history between Oldman and Rymes which they also explains why he got only one arm. There are some very crucial scenes that don't make much sense meaning that the direction of this movie may have been compromised.

.05 out of 4 stars

Cripplingly low budget and with a horribly stilted performance from Rhames the bland story plays out far too slowly to hold any interest. Oldman gets to be sinsiter and evil but has nothing to get his teeth into and when you think he is about to explode into scene chewing greatness.. nothing happens. Nothing you haven't seen many times before.

Retired cop Eddie Burns (Ving Rhames) gets dragged into a vicious revenge game by a crime boss named Charlie Storm (Gary Oldman). But the question is why is Strom so hellbent to get back at Burns? "Sin" is a real b-movie thriller that just happens to have two fine actors in it. The story is not really involving, the editing is a bit off and the entire movie is in the end very forgettable. Gary Oldman has commented on the movie saying "[Sin] is possibly the worst movie ever made. I even felt sorry for the trees they cut down for the script paper.", no it's not that horrible and Gary Oldman does his thing, still it would be a sin to call this movie 'good'.

A dumb and awkward film. Very poor acting for so many great actors.

An odd mix of thoughtful thriller and exploitation sickie, but if you can put up with its inconsistencies you'll find it strangely compelling . Plus the leads are on good form.

There are plot-holes. Big ones. But it's damn rugged. Rape, quicksand, someone cuts off their own limbs with a pistol, Ving Rhames choking people against mirrored walls, all while churches are being set on fire.

Niin arsyttava perusjuoni ja vuorosanat voi melkeen arvata etukateen. Nukahdin kesken, niin tylsa. Harmi, koska Gary Oldman on huippu!

This film seems to be quite violent and has a fairly straightforward storyline. An ex-cop (with one functioning arm) goes after some nutter who's captured his Sister and subjects her to violent sexual acts in retribution for something which happened in the past. The film lets itself down when the ex-cop gets set up and captured, when the bad guys nail his hand to a table, to which he escaped by shooting his hand off. Somehow he manages to complete his objective by killing off all of the bad guys, without suffering any ill effects of the severed arm he has, which surely would have been spurting out blood!

A B action movie with some very good parts.
Ving Rhames and Gary Oldman were as always solid.
