From the Back Cover

Enter the world of SIN. In the 21st century, the city of Freeport teeters on the verge of collapse. The twin tides of rampant crime and ruinous graft face but a single barrier, an elite strike force labeled "Hardcorps". Lead by colonel John Blade, they have become a fierce fighting force for justice in Freeport. Blade must now unravel a series of mysterious unexplained kidnapping. An elaborate puzzle unfolds as he delves into the decadence of the city, and at its heart is Elexis Sinclaire. Brilliant biochemist, unscrupulous businesswoman, and merciless vixen, Elexis will stop at nothing to achieve her monstrous goal: to bring about the evolution of mankind!

Loosely based on the PC game (a pretty good game), Sin is the story of a cop in the future who stumbles upon a plot by an evil scientist to turn everybody into monsters. Why? Because that's what evil scientists do dummy! And of course they are after an innocent little girl too since they are always the "key to their master plan".
The animation is a fair, the violence is nice and gory (I liked the monsters) but Sin is missing something. It has that "rushed out the door" feel. It is a very by-the-numbers piece of Anime, very little substance to it.

I bought this anime years ago, and I'm still unsure of what to think about it. It was one of the first anime I ever bought for my shiny new DVD player, and I've only watched it twice since that time.

The story itself is of a cop named John Blade who recently lost his partner to a strange, biochemically enhanced monster. Now, he must seek out the few clues to his partner's death while also dealing with the kidnappings of young girls. Joining him is the beautiful sister of the dead partner. Together, as they fight off the biochemical golems, they discover that a woman known as Alexis Sinclaire is responsible for these creatures. Essentially, Sin is a Frankenstein story, as the creatures are very similar in design, only these golems are placed in the 21st century with a very clear mission, which is to kill.

Now, I know it's not the animation I don't like about it. That's pretty good, with the exception of some of the CG, which is bad at times. What I think, now that I'm writing this, is that nothing here is unique in any form of entertainment. The characters are walking cliches (tough cop, victim of the antagonist, and overlord-like bad guy). The story, though it has some unique elements to it, can be seen in bad American horror movies. It just isn't something that has to be seen.

With that said, I can't truly recommend this title. It brings nothing to anime, and compares to just about anything, whether it's an anime or American movies.

This movie makes me mad, not so much because it was bad but because I'd expected it to be so much better, Sin was one of the best games ever made and I would easily throw $10 into it a week so I really expected it this to be a good movie, and it could haqve been, but they condensed it all into 53 minutes when it should have taken a bare minimum 2 hours, not only that but they sacrificed the story line for a bunch of shoot 'em up scenes of it got really confusing, however the action scenes weren't bad at all, and if that's all you're looking for I'd recomend this for you.

Sin: The Movie is one of the only anime that not only lives up to the hype surrounding its release, but surpasses it. This movie is filled with non-stop action, drama, intrigue, and suspense. The characters are fantastically portrayed and so *real*. This is easily a 5 star anime. I highly recommend buying it and adding it to your collection.

Being a big fan of the game, I was both excited and a bit worried about the movie. As I've found over the past few years, video games don't often translate well into movies. They seem to skim through most of the good characters to focus on a few. Since the game SIN has only a handful of characters anyway, this wasn't a problem. The animation was well done, the action was cool, and the story was interesting, though a bit generic for an anime title (super-genetic mutants try to take over the world...pick a movie). They could have done a better job on the "extras". Not much by way art and original game art. Instead, the DVD is full of interviews with the movie makers telling you what a good job they did. Interviews with the game makers telling you what a good job the movie makers did. There are even a few interviews with the movie's voice actors telling you about what a good job THEY did. I would have to say at this point that they did a really good job on the English dub...it's about time. The voice-overs were pretty strong this time instead of being dopey like they are in most dubs. Basically, if I could change anything it would be this: 1. Show more artwork from both the movie and the game. More "behind the scenes" stuff would have been good. (forgive me if it's there and I missed it) 2. "Movies" aren't 60 minutes... 3. Try and stay true to the original characters. The Alexis Sinclaire that we know and love from the game just looked like a typical anime babe. I know that's the genre's style and all, but I will be upset if RITUAL runs with it and turns her into a typical anime babe in SIN 2. Now having said all that, it was a great DVD and I'm glad I bought it.

After playing the game, I was very interested to see how the characters and storyline would play out in a film. However, while this movie was watchable and had some nice bits of animation, it was a bit of a letdown. The first sin is killing off one of the most important main characters in a truly idiotic fashion 5 minutes into the movie. The second sin is ruining the relationship between Elexis and Blade, which was the core of the plotline in the original game. The third sin is replacing the original voice actors with subpar imitators.

But the biggest sin is how rushed this anime is. The runtime is only a scant 54 minutes, putting it closer to a tv episode than a feature film in terms of length. Exacerbating the problem is that the creators are trying to tell a huge story, delving deep into the backgrounds of a large cast of characters while dealing with a massive threat. This story, although good, would have been much better told in a 3-hour epic than a 54-minute episode. As it is, the movie whips along so fast that the viewer is not given any time to appreciate the characters or the plotline before the movie abruptly ends. There are so many parts that could have been really good if they were fleshed out with just a little more time, but as it is it's a mess. Unfortunately for this reason I can't recommend it.
