Cinematical loves a love-it-or-hate-it proposition. Great is great, but disaster is infinitely more interesting to read about than mediocrity. So it's with no small measure of pleasure that we dive into the following pile of reviews. Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City, the first major release of 2005 with major pretensions towards artistry. Its Metacritic rating is 71 ... which is low, low, low, considering a whopping seven critics (fancy real critics, not make-believe internet hacks like myself) gave it a score of 100.
