Welcome to Sin City. This town beckons to the tough, the corrupt, the
brokenhearted. Some call it dark. Hard-boiled. Then there are those who call it home.
Crooked cops. Sexy dames. Desperate vigilantes. Some are seeking revenge. Others lust
after redemption. And then there are those hoping for a little of both. A universe of unlikely
and reluctant heroes still trying to do the right thing in a city that refuses to care.
The central story follows Marv (Mickey Rourke), a tougher-than-nails street-fighter who has always
played it his way. When Marv takes home a Goddess-like beauty named Goldie (Jaime King), only to
have her wind up dead in his bed -- he scours the city to avenge the loss of the only drop of
love his heart has ever known.
Then there's the tale of Dwight (Clive Owen), a private investigator perpetually trying to leave
trouble behind, even though it won't quit chasing after him. After a cop is killed in Old Town,
Dwight will stop at nothing to protect his friends among the ladies of the night.
Finally, there's the yarn of John Hartigan (Bruce Willis) -- the last honest cop in Sin City. With just one ticking hour left to his career, he's going out with a bang as he makes a final bid to save
an 11 year-old girl from the sadistic son of a Senator... with unexpected results.
Based on the Sin City
graphic novels by Frank Miller
