If I were 13, this would be the best film ever made. However, as I am a man in my late-forties who wants more from my comic book films than elaborate dream sequences that would make Terry Gilliam wonder aloud where the substance is, this film does not cut it.
Not deep or developed, but contains enough symbolism and sincerity to justify its girl empowerment theme. When that doesn't work for you, I sometimes consider it very good trash. One of the most misunderstood movies of last year.
snyder's experiment lacks some elements and has many faults, but it's a bold one; i think he should skip action in his future projects and choose better music, i would definitely like to see his new movie (with his sackful of new tricks he might get to the cahiers list pretty soon) the action is hardly more boring than in thor and maybe it was part of the plan
Awesome film. Zack Snyder continues to prove himself as of the most visionary directors at work in Hollywood today. The story in Sucker Punch must be one of the worst in history, but the execution is crazy brilliant - like a series of stunning music videos or computer game scenarios with a bit of everything from the candy store. This is shameless filmmaking at it's best and destined to become a cult favourite.
