Sucker Punch

Uber stylish sci-fi actioner, described as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns". This is the latest visual feast from director Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300).

About a girl (Emily Browning) who is institutionalised by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and envisions a plan to help her escape the facility. Also stars Vanessa Hudgens and Abbie Cornish.

Like Quentin Tarantino, Snyder is unapologetic about his influences -- the trashier the better -- though he's far less skilled in the art of pastiche.

Ultimately, Sucker Punch will appeal greatly to the core audience it wants - the fanboys and fan girls who'll get their geek on over the utterly amazing action sequences.

Little more than a sizzle-reel for Zack Snyder’s wettest dreams, what it lacks in consistency it makes up for in chutzpah. Just imagine if it had a decent story...

There is nothing here to enjoy, beyond the tiny satisfaction in noting that the movie lives up to its name.

A lot of noise and bluster...

A wonderfully wild provocation - an imperfect, overlong, intemperate and utterly absorbing romp through the id that I wouldn't have missed for the world.

Certain to create a gaping divide between generational and aesthetic camps, Sucker Punch is a largely grim and unpleasant display of technical wizardry wrapped around a story that purports to be inspirational.

Ambitious and visually impressive as a pop-video mash-up, but, lacking a strong emotional core, it doesn't quite cohere as a fully satisfying movie.

It's a hazard of this job that I get to sit through trailers and previews for months before any film has actually opened, and since February this one has been assaulting my eyeballs with ever more delirious promises.
