Sith and Sin -- My Views and No Spoilers
I ended up seeing two films in the cinema yesterday, and for the record going to the cinema during “working hours” doesn’t make it any less busy dammit! After watching both Sin City and Star Wars - Revenge of the Sith I have only a few comments to make.
Firstly I enjoyed Sin City more, Sith seemed to be about 45 minutes too long and, despite the gorgeous backdrops and neat fight scenes I found myself clock watching. Sin on the other hand was better paced but more disjointed. You follow different characters, in unrelated stories, through the film, which helped keep my attention. Sin had some great acting, Marv and Hartigan spring to mind, while watching any scenes with both Natalie Portman and Hayden Christensen in were just painful. They were wooden, motionless and completely free of chemistry.
Overall they are both worth a watch, seeing Yoda in action is always worth a cheap ticket but Sin City gets the thumbs up. Now roll on Serenity!
