More Noir

March 15, 2006

I finally saw Sin City the other night. It was enjoyable, but far from the great movie that I expected from other people’s reviews. My major concern going into the movie was that it would not be “comic booky” enough, but actually that was the part that they did best. The real problem is the fact that Frank Miller is stuck in the early 90s. There was tremendous progression in Miller’s early work from Daredevil to Ronin to Dark Knight. Since then, he has basically stagnated. Something the movie made far too clear.
