Sucker Punch

Reviewed on March 25th, 2011

Review by Sophie Dee


Starring: Emily Browning & Vanessa Hudgens
PG-13      1 hour 50 minutes

“Sucker Punch” is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary. She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls–the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and the 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 Gorski (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm). Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey–if they succeed–will set them free.

    I disagree, I really enjoyed the movie. Not typical movie ending, actually did not see it coming at all. Hard to follow, I understand but I thought very worthy of my money and time

    I really enjoy this movie. A big part of that was due to the story. I unfortunaty can related to the main character. Not from an abusive parent. Kind of person so I can’t go into details.

    The layering of stories I though was interesting. Not as well done as Inception or the Book Sophie’s World. But was a good try. And I agree with the prior comment. That ending was unexpected and which in some movies like this is a very good thing.
