The Sin City – Dasavatharam Connection

fletcher_inspiration_dasavatharam.jpg

I’ve been wondering for the last three days on the character similar to Christian Fletcher of Dasavatharam. I finally got it out this morning, while brushing.

The characterization and the macho look of Fletcher has been inspired by the villain of Sin City, Marv. All the killing and the action sequences also look alike except Dasavatharam’s effort looks like child’s play. I forgot if the Sincity’s Marv also got married at a Vegas church like Fletcher.

I only wish the production design was beefed up instead of creating various facemasks for Kamal. What a waste !!

    Good catch … but i think Boovaragan is also an inspiration. Very sure. I saw the same face somewhere .. may be not the accent !

    Also Balram Naidu, accent was also from some one. But quickly i remember the “Thelungu Thatha” from Panchathanthiram.

    fletcher was the best of the 10. I agree that the movie grows on you during the second watch. But that wasn’t required with other movies that were actually more complicated than dasa.

    This blog is exclusively for those Tamil cinema lovers who expected a great movie in Dasavatharam but in turn were treated to one of the most egoistic and silliest movies that we have seen in a long time. So, here it is – your chance to vent your frustrations and disappointments. Do let the world know about why Dasavatharam sucked big time for you.

    sreekrishnanv: I found a distict influence of Baliyaa (the old tamil comedian) in Balaram Naidu, especially in his interrogation scenes. The dialog delivery.

    Fletcher seemed to me like when I was a kid and saw terminator – I wanted to immediately put on a jacket and ride my cylcle (motorbike) and act like this really ‘cool’ american man! Ditto kamal! Dispaoointing to say the leat, especially since I am agreat admirer of Kamal’s work!

    My first impression of Fletcher was Arnold from “Terminator’. Especially the way he gets hit and falls down in action scenes and then casually gets up and walks off 🙂

    Lazygeek,

    If I remember correctly, Marv never marries in any of the as-yet-released Sin City novels. In the movie, he kills a priest (Rutger Hauer) in a church though.
