Ileana’s Movie Review: Sucker Punch

Warner Bros

Grade: B

Starring: Emily Browning, Carla Gugino, Scott Glenn

Summary: After the traumatic loss of her mother and sister, a young girl (Browning) is sent to an insane asylum by her evil stepfather. To cope with her trauma, Baby Doll (Browning) retreats into a world of fantasy where she plots her escape from the facility along with four other girls (Rocket, Sweet Pea, Amber, and Blondie).

I’m going to be the first to admit that this movie is not for everyone.

Scantily-clad young women with swords and machine guns won’t appeal to some, but I’m sure there’s an audience out there. I personally found the film very entertaining. Yes the acting is bad but I think the visual effects made up for it. I found myself eagerly anticipating the next fantasy
sequence just to see what Zack Snyder came up with, the best of which was the sequence with the dragons.

I also found the entire soundtrack really enjoyable. From the hauntingly-beautiful opening piece (for which Browning provided the vocals) to the campy club number during the closing credits, every song was a perfect fit to the story.

Trivia: This is Zack Snyder’s first live-action film to not receive an R rating.

Rated: PG-13 – For thematic material involving sexuality, fantasy violence
and combat sequences, and language.
