Starring: Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone
Directed by: Zack Snyder (“300”)
Written by: Zack Snyder (“300”) and Steve Shibuya (debut)
From putting a stimulating spin on an American horror classic in 2004’s “Dawn of the Dead” to slightly entertaining us with his next two highly-stylized films “300” and “Watchmen,” there’s no denying that director Zack Snyder can at least deliver some attention-grabbing imagery. But what he’s upchucked for “Sucker Punch,” an exceedingly erratic softcore male fantasy for gamers, is beyond inexcusable. Girls in an insane asylum imagining they’re in a whorehouse imagining they’re on a mission of girl-empowerment against German zombie soldiers, dragons, and samurai robots? Seriously, what the hell is going on here? Whatever it is, it’s not suspenseful or inventive and besides probably giving 13-year-old boys boners, it’s not very sexy either. This is the type of movie that will hang over Snyder’s head like “Showgirls” does for Paul Verhoeven. Now fanboys can officially fear for the “Superman” reboot.

  1. So because you don’t like video games and because you don’t like women, you give this movie movie a grade “F.” What do you care what goes on inside a 13-year-old’s pants. This is a good movie, creative, and good special effects. It’s not meant to be sexy, in case you didn’t notice they don’t even show them dancing, it cuts to the fighting scenes. 300 was “slightly entertaing?” 300 was one of the best movies that came out that year, no movie had ever been shot like that before, with the effects and the colors. This is the first time I’ve been to your site and I can already tell I won’t be back.

  2. Whoever the guy is commenting above me, he’s got to be some plant from the film production company. Because he is the only person alive that actually liked this movie besides Snyder and the other dimwit who co-wrote it.
