Review

“Vivid artwork.” – Wired
 
“Gorgeous.” – JoBlo
 
“A beautiful book… Every imaginary world gets delicious, full-page photos that you just want to climb into.” – Chud
 
“A must have..” – Geek Tyrant
 
“Packed with page after page of luscious concept art, production sketches, CGI pre-renders, detailed model scans and a whole lot more. It might as well be a walk through Snyder’s set, it’s so dense with eye candy.” – Hollywood.com
 
“This book stands on its own as an impressive, atmospheric, and almost overwhelming display of art and design.” – Ain’t It Cool News

Format: Hardcover
Length: 1:51 Mins
This art book is way thicker than I expected. It's 256 pages in a wide format hardcover. Nice.

Zack Synder's previous films (300, Watchmen, Legend of the Guardian) have a thing for CGI and this latest one is not exception.

This art book (and film) is like a pop culture hurricane. There girls with guns and blades, robots, orcs, castles, machine gun welding giant samurais, dragons, zombies, orcs, castles, theater and brothel. All these are from the vivid imagination of the lead, Babydoll.

The visuals in the book is a mixture of photos and art. There aren't much character art for the girls with the exception for Babydoll which has more (but in manga style). The art is various (few) alternate costumes. What you have is lots of stunning photography that ranges from the I'm-cute-and-I'm-in-an-asylum look to the I'm-going-to-kill-you-with-my-gun-and-dark-eye-shadows portraits. I like the idea large two-page portrait but unfortunately the photos aren't sharp enough at that size.

There are more art for other characters, such as the awesome samurai who likes big guns, Meka (yes, a mecha), soldiers, knights, a generic looking dragon, robots, zombies and orcs who look like cousins from their LOTR counterpart. Other art includes the sets like the castle, the mental institution, cathedral, city and Japanese temple. There are also miscellaneous stuff like the flying bomber and weapons (few). Most of the art looks digitally created.

Commentary is rather sparse other than the captions. Zack Synder seems to be the author. It would be better if there were more insights on the art which is what is lacking.

Overall, the book is a very decent art companion and is well worth the price.

I collect a LOT of "Art of" movie books. I think they're the best kind of memento you can get for films you love. Even though I haven't seen Sucker Punch the film yet, Sucker Punch the book has me completely enraptured.

This book is absolutely filled cover to cover with images, including concept art, sketches, photos, poster art, models, and tons of screens from the film itself. Most of the book features the characters and creatures, with intimate visual details for every one. There's not much copy and very few captions--just lots of art.

Plus it's huge (and heavy). At 256 pages, it's quite a bit bigger than most "Art of" books. The print quality is top notch. Overall, a crown jewel of my collection.

I was a little nervous about looking through it before seeing the film, because I didn't want to ruin my experience with spoilers. But it doesn't reveal much at all about the story itself (at least, not reading any of the minimal copy). In the end, it just made me want to see the movie even more. Can't wait!

Highly recommended. In my opinion, it's the best movie "Art of" book I've ever seen.

This is less of a review and more of a warning to customers. DO NOT spend the ridiculous amounts of money that sellers across the internet want for this book. Titan publishing is for a third time reprinting the book and should be available late October. Unless you are dedicated to owning only the signed edition or the first edition, just wait a bit longer and you will have it for around $20-$30. I know many fans are waiting for this and it makes me sick that sellers out there are bleeding so much money out of them.

Email from a Titan Rep September 6 2011:

Many thanks for your enquiry.

This title is currently reprinting and will be back in stock at our US warehouse by mid-October of this year. Copies should be available from retailers by no later than the end of October.

Kind regards,

Mary

I'm an artist a big fan of stylized media and 'unique' art direction. I pre-ordered the book well before the movie came out knowing I would be visually impressed with the both. Due to high-demand and/or low volume, my order was cancelled by Amazon and the used prices quickly shot up well beyond $100 (some as much as $350!). I found a used copy for $30 and snagged it.

Having looked over the book a few times, I can easily say it's nice to have, but not a must have. The primary problem is the book is comprised mostly of screen stills and behind the scenes photos. The art consists of a handful costume sketches, a bunch of enemy sketches/CGs, and some background sketches/CGs. None of the main character art is exceptional, but many of the enemy sketches are interesting. Finally, there is a heap of promotional pieces (posters, covers, etc..). Googling "Sucker Punch Art" will get you roughly the same images.

Overall, I would say it's worth the MSRP, but not much more--unless, perhaps, your a worshiper of the movie.
