Didn't love the movie but I liked it. The acting was good overall, especially Ving's performance. But Ving's character annoyed me just a little bit. With the horror that his sister Kassie went through I would have killed Vincent as he walked up the stairs and I would have iced Charlie when he was sitting at his desk. Should have taken both of them out as soon as he had the chance. Charlie had an easy death; he should have been tortured the way he tortured Kassie. Also, Gary Oldman played his part well, as he usually does.
I am in the midst of an ongoing Gary Oldman Film Festival. I've always enjoyed his work, but never really sat down and watched most of his films, good and bad alike. After being treated to his brilliant performances in 'Leon: The Professional', Nolan's Batman Trilogy, and 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,' I have come to 'Sin'. Now, 'Sin' is not a great movie for either Oldman or Ving Rhames. Rhames plays Eddie, a retired cop with a dark past, but his best lines were reminiscent of his performance as Marsellus Wallace in the far-superior 'Pulp Fiction', so if you're a Rhames fan watch that instead. Gary Oldman, always one to rise above the material he's given, plays a sleazy ponographer named Charlie Strom who takes out his revenge on Rhames' sister. Charlie becomes much more interesting as we learn what's actually behind hs vendetta against Rhames. The best scene in the film is when Oldman pretends to be an honest, hardworking mechanic who confides in Eddie. Bottom line, 'Sin' tries to be too many things and doesn't do any of them well. Charlie's moments of humanity are not enough to save it.
On a lighter note, 'Sin' contains Oldman's best death scene ever! I know--spoiler alert! Gary Oldman plays a villian and dies at the end--but this particular death is just too deliciously campy to miss.
Apparently, Gary Oldman called 'Sin' 'the worst movie ever made.' It isn't, but it certainly is one of Oldman's worst. Even then, there's still interesting moments that make 'Sin' worth at least a rental if you're a fan, which I most definitely am now.
