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. Now, Blade must unravel a series of mysterious kidnappings. 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.

KNOWN DVD SECRET(S): None that I know of
SIN: The Movie is an anime movie based on a video game of the same name. It’s also a movie that was pretty much written and produced in the USA and made by Phoenix Entertainment in Japan.
As most anime fans know, video game anime usually suck with a few exceptions to Fatal Fury and SFII.
Now how does SIN: The Movie rank? Well, quality wise, it’s better than most of the video game anime available. For video game fanatics and anime fans who love violence, they will love SIN. It has everything these fans are looking for.
Now, what about the plot? It was ok. It wasn’t revolutionary and so awesome. Perhaps if I was a SIN video game fan, I may have been very excited for this anime but I never played the game and from my standpoint, the anime was average.
I wish they used the high-res yellow/black border subtitles for this movie. As for the special features, the making of the movie provided some good insight especially the people behind the SIN game.
Otherwise an average anime DVD.
