80Sucker Punch doesn't all work by a long shot, but it confirms my sense that Snyder belongs near the top of a very short list of directors who are trying to reinvent a personal, auteurist vision of cinema at the most commercial, mass-market, attention-disordered end of the spectrum.
10Sucker Punch is the perfect geek fantasy, action packed blockbuster made so far. its visual effects puts itself on a whole other level, and the music just fits in perfectly. the only thing that brings itself down is the storyline, its confusing and the story unfold as if it were a scab being ripped off. but the thing that sets itself apart from the good movies and the bad ones is the ending. Zack Snyder gave off strong emotions at its jaw dropping end to show the good in humanity.… Expand
To be honest, if you go into this movie expecting some deep plot, or anything other than an action-centric movie, you'll be sorely disappointed. What action/thriller is deep or has such plot nowadays? Sucker Punch, for me, reminded me of a mash up of comics, anime, video games and femme fatale style heroics which, if you're a fan of, you'll enjoy. The other mash up involved here that is interesting is how it jumps from the 40s style burlesque era to a strange, steampunk like world in the fantasies. This is, in no way, a perfect movie, and I'm not about to try to convince anyone that it has the best acting, CG, stunts or anything. What I did like was that the movie got me interested in the girls' dilemmas and even though there wasn't much background except on Baby Doll, Rocket and Sweet Pea, there was enough there to make me want to see them make it to the end. The idea that this girl, Baby Doll transforms so drastically from a school girl to a heroine in her alternate reality is just... well... cool. It's all silliness in the end but the fact is there is some great entertainment in this movie if you let go of the critic in you and just enjoy it for what it is. An action thriller. And a pretty good one too.… Expand
7See this if you want to treat your eyes to a visual feast. If you want to treat your brain then forget it. After 300 and Watchmen I'm a big fan of Zack Snyder as I love his visual style. The problem here is the story and how crazy it is, its all over the place. A real mixed bag of a movie but for me and my tastes worth seeing. It won't be the same for everyone.… Expand
Question: Is Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch"
(a) An exploitative epic in which young, submissive women are unable to kill a man but are able to erotically dance for his pleasure?
(b) A feministic call-to-arms exploring the virtues of erotic capital in a world where all men are evil except the old ones with no sex drive who drive buses?
(c) A comic-book nerd-fantasy of dragons, undead soldiers and hot girls in tight skirts?
(d) A video game in which the audience is played like chumps for cash?
(e) A dreadful overuse of budget, showing that something can be amazingly pretty but still completely boring?
That's right. The answer is (f) A complete pile of steaming dog turd.
