This is a review of the Extended Cut Blu-ray edition of "Sucker Punch" directed and written by Zack Snyder. There is an extra 15 minutes or so, adding further depth of narrative to the film.

This is a very strange movie ... and not a film that everyone will enjoy. It is certainly a journey into surrealism, as allowed for by the powers of CGI. It involves layers of imagination, mostly involving videogame style settings and adventures. It is male fantasy manifested on screen - with semi-clad, highly erotic young beauties strutting their stuff for the viewers pleasure. The creativity that has gone into this film is huge! It's not about story, but about momentary fascination (a release from the real world).

Yet, there is an undercurrent of a plot. A young woman is incarcerated in a hell-hole of a mental institution, even though she's not actually insane. She decides to escape, and realises this will involve the help of other female inmates. Her ordeal is expressed in an imaginary setting - with the asylum replaced by a brothel-cum-theatre, in which she and a group of other young women are being held captive, forced to prostitute themselves. And within this imaginary setting, the main young woman - brilliantly acted by Emily Browning - has a series of fantasies ... and so we, the viewers, descend further into the nether regions of non-reality. Here we encounter the strange videogame settings: epic battles against other worldly foes (from zombies to dragons). In and through such fantasies, the women seek to undertake what's necessary to free themselves from the asylum.

Okay, it doesn't make a lot of sense. It's not meant to! This is about the trip, not the destination. We are here to enjoy the ride ... to observe these young beautiful women overcome adversity.

*** 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.

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!

Sucker Punch is a grind-house styled flick, but unfortunately that's probably all I can say with certainty about this strangely enthralling film. Sucker Punch as name suggests, does deliver a sucker punch, you start to demean the film as a simple one yet it comes right back at you and gives you something else.

Critics have been harsh on this film, mainly it appears for the message which has been interpreted as "women are only good as sexual objects" or "women are simply powerless". Maybe to a degree they are right as the males in the film attempt to make the females just that but clearly these critics missed that through the film women have been far stronger and far more courageous than men. At every moment the underlying will of the women is to rebel, and it's this unshakeable resolve that after every setback gives them their final pyrrhic victory.

Now getting into a deeper more spoiler filled review... The main character 'Babe' ()or baby doll is importantly a babe - a weak in appearance every-babe who is always scorned upon, rarely taken seriously and sexualised from the beginning. To be honest I thought it unlikely she'd become the final martyr in this jigsaw of sacrifice and defiance. Babe is the character who imagines a mental institute into a brothel as a coping method. Babe is the character who starts the fight against her oppression. Babe is the character who realises there must be something better than her current life. Babe gives her life up to ensure another wrongly imprisoned woman can go free. Babe before all this, is the embodiment of male lust from the start of the film yet this is turned on its head, when babe is fated to be raped at the end of the film as a lobotomised husk.
