Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

Sucker Punch has Moulin Rouge's freewheeling disrespect for genre, cramming dragons, zombie steampunk World War I German soldiers, robotic samurai, military helicopters, and gun-toting, scantily clad superbabes into a series of hyperviolent fantasies that spring from the undulations of a schizoid madhouse inmate. Sucker Punch also has The Matrix's disdain for the laws of physics, as svelte young women in tight clothes leap, spin, twirl, kick, and crash in slow-motion spectacles that only vaguely resemble how bodies actually move in space. On top of that, Sucker Punch has a video game's disinterest in characters, narrative, sensible dialogue, or sense of any kind, really--anything that might get in the way of the next spasm of bullets and sword slashes. A troubled girl nicknamed Baby Doll (the preposterously glossy Emily Browning, whose china-doll looks previously appeared in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events), traumatized by her impending lobotomy, reimagines her asylum as a hybrid cabaret/brothel. She and her just as whimsically monikered fellow inmates (played by Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, and Jamie Chung) use their feminine wiles and some kick-ass gyrations to escape… but things go very, very wrong. The relentless eye-candy comes from director Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300), whose interest in decorative grime and glistening skin seems to short-circuit everything else. But there's no denying that eye-candy does abound. Also featuring Scott Glenn in the Yoda-esque role of "Wise Man." --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Flawed Genius? 9 April 2011
Format:DVD
*** POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOLLOW ***

I'm making the focus of this review an explanation of what I believe (and others that have shared their thoughts with me) the story and film is about. I think alot of the issues negative reviews have is that it makes no sense, so hopefully what I've laid out here will help go some way to explaining it.

Like other, more constructive, reviews have already stated this film works on a number of levels. Not just the various layers of reality but also with layered meaning and symbolism. I you were expecting *just* an easy to watch straightfoward action film then you're going to be, well, sucker-punched. Why would anyone think this though - the trailers' all pretty much warned you to not expect that and the title definitely does. In fact there are multiple ways to interpret the title of the film beyond it just not being a straightforward action film. Here are a few points to consider regardin it:

* Baby Doll was not the protagonist (a fact she twigs on to at the end).

* She isn't even necessarily real - she's an 'Angel' created in the mind of Sweet Pea.

* Baby Doll's back story (her sister and situation) all describe, in part, the story of Sweet Pea's (as alluded to within certain scene's of the film).

* Let's also not forget that Sweet Pea was playing the role of Baby Doll in the first scene on the stage. The narrator all the way through the film is Sweet Pea. The fantasy bordello elements didn't actually start until we meet Sweet Pea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enigmatic and outrageously entertaining 18 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
To anybody having seen the cinema/DVD release only, I would thoroughly recommend this extended Blu-ray 2 disc edition. The first disc has the cinema version, the second the director's cut, containing over 17 extra minutes, that add up to a real fleshing out of the narrative. There are notable highlights here, including substantially expanded action sequences, particularly the fortress assault in pursuit of fire, which is on a par with the Orc scenes in 'Lord of the Rings' ( but with added machine guns!!) There's also an eye-popping burlesque/night club scene with Oscar Isaac and Carla Gugino performing the show stopping 'Love is the Drug'. Also on this disc is a full feature run-through of the film with director Zack Snyder, various film technicians and actors dissecting and explaining many of the processes involved in production and special effects. Definitely a must buy item for anyone who liked this film on its initial release.

It ads more story instead of action and thats what it needed. It fleshes out the world more and I still think its a good movie despite what the majority says...

It looks gorgeous in 1080P and the art work is sublime.. It has its faults to be sure but I still enjoy it

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 22 April 2012
By KM #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
My lad and I really enjoyed Sucker Punch. We'd heard mixed reviews on it but you've just gotta see it for yourself and I'm glad we did!

It's basically the story of a girl who accidentally kills her sister (whilst trying to defend her)and ends up in an asylum, via the underhanded dealings of her stepfather she is in line for a lobotomy so she can't tell anybody about what's been going on with the horrible stepfather. That's it! But as she's about to have the procedure she immerses herself into an imaginary world which is what this movie is all about (in the main!).

As you can imagine (no pun intended) the stuff you could possibly dream up with your mind is amazing and what we are treated to here is absolutely brilliant in my opinion. Forget all the hidden meanings and psycho babble of each and every little scene and character and just sit back, crank your speakers or sound system up and enjoy the CGI fest and audio that will be blasted into your ever grateful ears folks because this movie does deliver great action scenes covering martial arts stylised fighting, guns, guns and more guns, Sci Fi, robots, giant samurai demons, steam punk german armies, orc like creatures and dragons accompanied by great audio and visuals!

As pure total and utter escapism I couldn't fault it, brilliant!

3.0 out of 5 stars An indulgence all round 11 Nov 2011
By OEJ TOP 100 REVIEWER TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Blu-ray review.

Sucker Punch is an action-fantasy thriller film, following the fantasies of a young woman who is committed to a mental institution, and how she makes plans to escape the hospital before undergoing a lobotomy. The cinematic release earlier in 2011 received a generally negative reception from critics, who considered the film poorly written and acted despite the visual flair, and significantly underperformed at the box office, barely recouping its budget.

Within about fifteen minutes of watching this Blu-ray film (which I rented) I 'got it', and from then on it was basically a question of going through the motions, with no shocks or twists at all. A couple of things occurred to me; first that this was little more than a complete indulgence for the director and creator, and secondly that it probably would have been truer to those indulgences had all censorship been lifted - or at least, given an 18 rating. As it stands it's almost conspicuous for its toning-down of whatever overt sexuality that the writer and director surely had in mind originally, the financial objective being to get it accepted for viewers of only 12 years of age. The film cost over $80 million so maybe there was unplanned pressure to get it to a wider audience. Personally I think this backfired; it's a film that, like Sin City for example, should really be aimed at adults with no compromises in terms of censorship.

This is definitely a film that if you're going to get it at all, you must go for the Blu-ray version. It's all about visual and aural impact so to best enjoy that, go hi-def. Music being such an essential element of this film, the soundtrack takes full advantage of the 5.
