Honestly Full of Action But Lacking of Anything else
This movie was so pointless that I wondered why I was even sitting in
the theater watching it half way through the movie and why I sat
through the whole thing at the end of the movie. Maybe it was because I
paid $15.00 to see it on an IMAX screen or the fact that I was so
sickened by the movie and needed time to gather myself to leave.
The movie was so incoherent and the majority of the movie had so little
to do with the start and ending of the movie that if you left the
theater and walked back in at different parts of the movie you would
think it was an entirely different movie each time just casting the
same actors and actresses. Definitely not worth the time and money of
movie goers and may not even be worth watching it if it was to one day
be shown on HBO or Starz one day.
If you are the type of movie watcher who has a short span of attention
then the movie will definitely seem great. If you however watch movies
expecting that the scenes and the story of a movie should all tie in
together then this is not your type of movie. The movie does a poor job
at explaining what really happened to the characters in the movie and
what exists only in the mind of cool effects and lots of explosions.
The audience never gets a chance to learn anything about the
characters' character because the movie never builds up any of the
If you've yet to waste your money on this movie then use that money to
go buy yourself some dinner. If after reading this and you still want
to waste your money then I have a few foundations that you can better
donate your money to than the pockets of Snyder..

Having raised my expectations after a friend showed me the two trailers
of Sucker Punch in December, I went and caught it on the first day. I
was not disappointed. You know there are movies that pretend to be
something they're not (e.g. Rango seemingly a fun movie and for kids,
but it's not; or the poster of The Adjustment Bureau that made it seem
like an action flick, but it's not). When I saw the trailer, I saw
girls in hot costumes, kick-ass action, anime-inspired material, and
visual sequences as only visionaries like Zach S can bring to the
Simply put, it was as advertised.
Emily Browning stars as Baby Doll, a girl who was checked into a mental
institution by her abusive stepfather, whose imagination comes to life
while she's inside. Maybe it's a coping mechanism, or something more
purposive for her, or maybe it's Zach Snyder's creative way of showing
difficulties in real life. With Baby Doll are other young "girls" Sweet
Pea (Abbie Cornish), Sweet Pea's sister Rocket (Jena Malone), Blondie
(Vanessa Hudgens), and Amber (Jamie Chung) who all band together and
ooze testosterone (wait, or should it be estrogen, right? whatever...)
with their swords, guns, heavily-armed vehicles, and martial arts
moves, as they attempt to survive their daily hell. Impressive visuals
are basically the norm of the film as expected, but at least this time
we see more than we saw from the trailers (which were quick cuts but
had enough oomph to get the average joe (READ: guys) interested to
watch) -- kick-ass action and hot women. Hell, even women who like
strong female leads could get into this, too. Though there definitely
will be those that will get turned off by the way women are depicted in
But don't get carried away - - this isn't Oscar-worthy acting, and the
storyline, though well told in this visually-stunning, mind-F'ing,
Inception-esque way--- is not that deep. But I didn't expect depth in a
movie like this. And neither should you.
Acting was fine, especially for Jena Malone, whom I enjoyed watching
when she was a kid in dramas like Stepmom and For Love of the Game.
Abbie Cornish was good and intense. Lead Emily Browning had spunk and
emotion in hey eyes; Jamie Chung and Vanessa Hudgens looked good, too,
though not much else to see their acting chops. Oscar Isaac reminded me
of that Numbers guy (is it David Krumholtz?), and he was scary and
devious as Blue the orderly. While I am an admirer of Carla Gugino, her
character's accent was somewhat weird and she only had moments, too.
John Hamm's just a familiar name making a cameo, so his acting was
severely underutilized. Like I said, it ain't Oscar-worthy, except
maybe for visual effects/art direction, costume and the usual fare.
I still give it an 8 because I expected it like the way I saw the
trailers, like I know Zach Snyder does films, and that's it.
Bring your popcorn and drink folks, and enjoy this ride. The Summer
movie season starts with Sucker Punch..
