I'm not going to waste any time with this review. If you are thinking of watching this movie, don't. It might be free on multiple video streaming sites but you won't be able to replace the wasted hour of your life. You might think that I'm overreacting but I can't think of any worse way to spend your time. The movie is based on some 90's shooter that I'd never heard of. Since Sin: The Movie is based on a video game, it's not a big surprise that the plot is totally weak. It had something to do with people getting turned into zombie-mutants and read more

Sin the Movie is the best worst movie you've never seen.

It adapts an unsuccessful first person shooter game called Sin that tried to compete with the original Half Life. Video game adaptations are known to be terrible and Sin is no exception. Nothing makes sense. Nothing is explained. And this is what makes Sin the Movie the best of the worst movies.

It begins with John Blade, JC and some rando going into a sewer because reasons. JC is then killed by a sewer alligator, I think. Because reasons. John Blade yells "JC" and the scene cuts to a funeral. Some old guy mumbles pretentious dialogue read more

Pretty good action and violence. Story is interesting and they manage to make you care about these characters, even though it's a short OVA. Premise for plot os almost typical of some cyberpunk animes, although I don't think I would consider this one. Villians are well drawn and not the generic type found in Devil May Cry or Guyver. Animation and sound are big movie type quality. Rewatchability is good too due to good action and short run time. You can find it cheap and easy on dvd.

Ah, my favourite anime to loathe.

Sin was a fun game, IMO. Even this movie might have made a playable game, if an intensely generic one. But it wasn't a game – it was a movie, and a bad one. From the very start canon is thrown right out the window, closely followed by the splattered brains of the protagonist's fan-beloved partner and friend, JC. If you think that was a spoiler, you're right – it pretty much spoils the entire movie by turning it into a body-horror splatterhouse with an unspeakably awkward sexual tension twist as JC's where-the-hell-did-she-come-from sister, also named read more

American Studios and Production Committees: Risks and Rewards

In the early-mid 2000s, US licensing companies were involved in numerous anime Production Committees. It didn't go so well for them. This year, several US licensors are trying their luck on Production Committees again. Will it go better this time?
