9.  Sin City

Original Release Date: April 1, 2005

Box Office Earnings: The film was a solid box office success, grossing almost four times its budget of $40 million by earning almost $160 million. By today’s standards, that’s not a huge number but it’s pretty impressive for its time, where a dark and gritty comic book movie wasn’t a guaranteed box office success.

Critical Acclaim: With a 77% on Rotten Tomatoes, Sin City is a moderate critical success. Critics loved the unique visual style and pulp-y nature and most agreed it did a great job bringing the groundbreaking graphic novel to life.

About the Role: Sin City is an anthology film, telling several different stories throughout its runtime. They’re all great, but my personal favorite is “That Yellow B*****d,” which sees Bruce Willis play an aging, hard-boiled police officer attempting to stop a serial child murderer, uncovering a vast conspiracy in the process.

Simply the Best: Bruce Willis just fits into the world this movie creates so well. As we follow his John Hartigan character go through literal hell to protect one girl, we just desperately want him to succeed in the end. And as much as we want to talk about the great finale, we won’t spoil it here. Just go check it out already!
