Sin City is a bad place to live. Danger lurks around every corner and things aren’t getting any better. Marv (Rourke) is a mean fighting machine that’s out on parole. After a night with a gorgious lady called “Goldie” he wakes up to find her dead in his bed and the cops about to arrest him. Hartigan (Willis) is a burnt out cop who’s about to go on retirement. However, he wants to close just one last case: a pedophile that gets his kicks by torturing little girls and then killing them. Dwight (Owen) is a killer who just got himself a new face but gets in the middle of a war between the mob and the hookers from downtown due to the death of a hero cop.
Sound and Vision:
When we checked out the DVD we said that certain scenes suffered from cross colouration where colors start to interfere and pop up in places they shouldn’t. Surprise surprise but we noticed exactly the same thing on this Blu-ray! The issue comes from bad mastering so the fact that we notice it again here, it’s clear RCV used the same master for the Blu-ray as they did for the DVD. Bad points!
The sound on the DVD came already with a nice DTS track and this time we get an uncompressed master audio which sounds a tiny bit better even. Definitely good stuff.
RCV has started releasing their movies on Blu-ray but up to now there’s little reason to “upgrade”. Sin City is the best example of this as there still aren’t any extras present and the image quality is pretty much the same as we got from the DVD. The audio is a bit better but that’s certainly not worth the additional money if you already got the movie on DVD.
