Movie: Sucker Punch (2011)

You Will Be Unprepared.

Sucker Punch (2011), directed by visionary director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole) is an action-fantasy thriller movie shot in the style of a music video and a video game.

Synopsis: A young girl nicknamed Babydoll (Emily Browning) is locked away in a mental asylum by her abusive stepfather where she will undergo a lobotomy in five days' time. Faced with unimaginable odds, she retreats to a fantastical world in her imagination where she and four other female inmates at the asylum - Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), Rocket (Jena Malone), Amber (Jamie Chung), and Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), plot to escape the facility.

The lines between reality and fantasy blur as Babydoll and her four companions, as well as a mysterious guide, fight to retrieve the five items they need that will allow them to break free from their captors before it's too late.


In a nutshell, this movie appeals to most guys because it portrays absurdly fetishized women in teeny little skirts, gloriously repetitious fight sequences loaded with plot coupons, and pseudo-feminist fantasies of escape and revenge.

Director Zack Snyder describes Sucker Punch as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns". Here's what he says about the content of the movie: "On the other hand, though it's fetishistic and personal, I like to think that my fetishes aren't that obscure. Who doesn't want to see girls running down the trenches of World War One wreaking havoc? I'd always had an interest in those worlds - comic books, fantasy art, animated films. I'd like to see this, that's how I approach everything, and then keep pushing it from there."

Well, this is not the kind of movie genre that I enjoy watching but I do appreciate the ingenious and brilliant blend of comics, fantasy, animation, action, and music presented in the movie.
