Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

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

Product Description

Born from the creative vision of filmmaker Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300), this epic action fantasy launches from the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Locked away against her will, Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four fellow captives – outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish) – to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorki (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm).

Format:Blu-ray
The extended cut of Sucker Punch adds approximately 17 minutes and 45 seconds of additional footage, and is R-rated. The extended cut is much darker than the theatrical cut; while not necessarily being more visually explicit, previously implied suggestions are now explicitly overt. The violence and action scenes have also been extended as well, with two re-inserted battle sequences, one with the orcs at the castle (arterial spurts of green orc blood), and the other with the German World War I zombies.

I don't think I quite understand Snyder's multi-layered metaphorical comparisons between the brothel, asylum, and Baby Doll's fantasy worlds, but I will say that the movie (especially the action sequences) are visually stunning, and the colors beautifully contrasted. Credit especially to the actresses for their proficient firearms handling (but where exactly did they store all those extra magazines I wonder?). However, it would be superficial to suggest that Sucker Punch is only about girls in anime costumes fighting monsters in fantasy worlds, though that is certainly an interpretation shared by many critics who panned the movie.

Here are the main differences between the Extended Cut and Theatrical Cut; NOTE, SPOILERS FOLLOW, so continue reading at your own risk.

(1) Baby Doll shoots at the stepfather a second time (as compared to a single time in the theatrical cut), resulting in some CG blood and an arm bullet wound, which the stepfather grabs at.

(2) When Sweet Pea first meets Baby Doll (with Blue and the priest), Sweet Pea says, "the priest brought you here from the orphanage to lose your virginity, right?". Then Blue says, "The High Roller is coming in 5 days to do a little flower picking..

5.0 out of 5 stars Fierce & Trippy - Not Just a Male Fantasy (I'm a Girl) September 2, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I loved this movie when it came out and saw it in the theater. Just rewatched it with my sister and still think it's great. I was trying to understand why the critics almost universally panned it. I dig films that play with the frame, get all meta on you and this is one of them. The director sort of intentionally misleads the audience, disrupts the normal conventions of linear narrative and clear-cut roles. So the suckerpunch of the title really is, in one way, directed at the audience. And I think the critics just balked at the arrogance of this move by the director. By not delivering a completely feel-good piece of fluff - which may have been what they were thinking they were settling down to enjoy, what with the extremely smooth visuals. Instead, the film induces a sense of ambivalence, almost complicity, in the viewer as we find that we cannot simply turn off our critical faculties to indulge in a guilt-free gaze at the pretty women. Rather, we are challenged to consider their control and objectification - within the storyline, and by extension, the film industry and society as a whole. So I find it interesting that so many critics lambasted this movie as just that - some sort of soft porn anime-inspired female exploitation. When in my mind, that is exactly what the film is commenting on. It's like the critics didn't get it, took it at face value, or just knee-jerked reacted to their own discomfort at the implications of the film, its weird mixing of genres and glamorous aesthetics with essentially gritty realities about misogyny and a culture where the lines between abuse and pleasure are often blurred with hypocrisy and a leering eye.

This has future cult favorite written all over it. Complex, awesome special effects, and a fun cast to boot. If you didn't enjoy it the first time, I definitely recommend watching it again. Zack Snyder really shows off his skills with this film and I can officially call myself a big fan of his work now. So enjoy and make sure to go in with an open mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blu-Ray Review (Updated: July 6th) March 26, 2011
Format:DVD
Note: I wrote an original review for the film only way back when I saw it, which was actually on opening day. Now that I have acquired the Blu-Ray version of Sucker Punch, I will write a review. My consensus though is to purchase the Blu-Ray package over the DVD, so if you just want to read my thoughts on the movie, skip this section. I will review the Blu-Ray. If you are wanting to know everything about the layout and the general features, Amazon is correct with both product descriptions, so you can trust them.

When I first saw Sucker Punch in theaters, the art direction, CGI, and the colors was absolutely jaw dropping; this was one of the movies that I could see blasting on my TV screen. Well, I am happy to report that Sucker Punch looks and sounds terrific on Blu-Ray. Given the sensory overload Sucker Punch provides, one can only imagine how the potential of the , and the transfer does its justice and brings Sucker Punch to complete life upon your HD TV. The picture is crystal clear and sharp, which gives way to an absolutely dazzling high definition picture on screen. Sucker Punch's intense colors, elaborate architecture, and stylized visuals all come to life onscreen, with a visual intensity on the same boat as any high production value video game would be able to achieve (Think Uncharted 2 or God of War 3. Sucker Punch can surely compete with both games in terms of visual splendor). All the little details of the visual intensity absolutely stand out and are crystal clear. You can see everything little snow-flake, bit of explosion, and piece of dust, yet the little details don't substantiate the stylized and beautiful landscape and architecture. I give the picture an easy 10. It looks absolutely amazing.

Thanks Zack!
Every movie doesn't need to be in 3-D. Not being shot in 3-D is even worse.
Zach Synder, along with Darren Aronofsky, and Christopher Nolan
are the only people who actually care about making movies and not bad 3-D conversions.

Zach Synder is great: "Watchmen," "Dawn Of The... Read more
