alot of Sucker but not much of a punch in it.
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 reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens) and the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung)-to band together and try to escape a terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac) and Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino), before the mysterious High Roller (Jon Hamm) comes for Babydoll. 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.
well this is a movie i was waiting for from the moment i saw the trailer which looked so mindblowing to me, all the special effects and all. and yes ofcourse the fact that its being directed by one of the most original directors of this modern decade Zack Snyder. i really like his originality and his work. though i was not sure about whether people wii like this movie or not and was kind of sure about the fact it will get bad reviews from critics which as you can see it did. till now from 125 critics it got a 19% rating on tomatometer. which if i am not wrong is his lowest ratings for a movie till now. this movie had some problems i agree with that but he usually has his unique style and his own original approach to movies. which should not be the reason why his movies does not work well with the critics. Like 300 and Watchmen which got some above average mixed reviews with 60-65% tomatometer. his last year's legends of guardian did not worked well with the critics. i liked those movies though LOG was pretty heavy for me too. this movie being made for teenagers and a example of todays pop culture video games era wasn't too bad or worst but an average or above average movie. this director tried animated (for children) genre and now action adventure for teens, both of them didn't worked out so i think he should concentrate more on his adult feature movies as he do. but i am waiting for thr next Superman movie. enough, now gonna talk about this movie.
this movie stars Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung , Oscar Isaac , Carla Gugino and Scott Glenn.
will acting wise ofcourse it was not good, the girls looked okay but the other girls except the lead had nothing to offer much. i think character wise it wasn't executed well. about this movie, one of my friend said ALOT OF SUCKER BUT NOT PUNCH. this movie was weak. i was slightly disappointed by this movie. this movie featured a lot of action and stunning visual effects which really looked good to watch and quite entertaining and breathtaking. the whole feel of it was like a video game really. direction of this movie i must say could have been better and much tighter.
story was new and ok but wasn't executed well, plot was not much of there screenplay had many problems. i must say it was written very badly. costumes were good and the background score and all those songs were good. this movie overall is fun to watch but pretty shallow when you look at it. go see it if you are a fan of Zack and this genre.
