Sucker Punch

Zack Snyder

Emily Browning
Abbie Cornish
Vanessa Hudgens
Jamie Chung

Running Time:
120 minutes


This year there appears to be a large number of comic books being made into movies and with Zack Snyder at the helm of this one we should be in for an enjoyable ride. Although I haven’t read the comic books, the plot of Sucker Punch seems to be a mess and at certain points in the movie I found boredom setting in. Sucker Punch is about a girl trying to escape from a mental asylum/brothel that she was wrongfully placed into after her mother’s death, to escape all the horrifying moments she imagines she’s elsewhere fighting dragons and robots. The acting by Browning and Cornish is adequate, but for Hudgens, who is merely an extra, I cannot be so lenient. It’s not all doom and gloom though as the cinematography and editing are outstanding, which you expect from the Watchmen Director. Overall I wasn’t impressed with the film and I think that it could have been better without all the imaginary scenes, that in my opinion where a waste of time.

  1. You know a Zack Snyder film is going to look good. But it sounds like that's all that's good about Sucker Punch...oh well. Now we wait until Man of Steel.
