While I liked “A Dame To Kil For” by Frank Miller, it does not compare to The Hard Goodbye. This installment is where most of the Sin City movie comes from. It’s the story of Marv chasing down Goldie’s killer.

Marv is such a sympathetic character. Yeah, he’s a violent bruiser but it’s like he doesn’t know how to be anything else. He’s slow and “get’s confused” but that makes him all the more likable. In “A Dame To Kill For,” Dwight describes him as being born in the wrong time, he’d of had girls thrown at him during gladiator times. (paraphrase) And that’s true. While there is violence in our modern society, the brutality that is Marv needed to be someplace else. He needed to be born someone else, a gladiator, a viking, apart of the Mongolian Empire, anything but a regular man.
