The interactive game “Kill ‘em Good,” lets viewers play Marv, the outcast misanthrope on a mission to avenge the death of his true love, Goldie. The “Cine-Explore” feature, a breakthrough interactive visual

Sin City is based on Frank Miller’s popular series of graphic novels and features an all-star crew both behind and in front of the camera. Acclaimed director Robert Rodriguez (Grindhouse, Spy Kids) teamed with Mr. Miller to co-direct an all-star cast that includes Bruce Willis, Oscar-nominee Mickey Rourke (Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for: The Wrestler, 2008), Clive Owen, Jessica Alba and
Rosario Dawson, in this riveting tale of killers, cops, hookers and hit men, all inhabiting one very dangerous, very sexy city. Sin City debuted in theatres in 2005 to critical acclaim and box office success and, like Mr. Miller’s graphic novels, continues to grow in its fan base.

Fantastic! I'm glad I held off on the bare bones Canadian blu-ray. This is a definite buy.

I'm glad I held out as well. I'm assuming both versions have the DTS-HD MA track? And I really hope it will be region free, the previous blu-ray was.
Never go out with anyone who thinks Fellini is a type of cheese
