Product Description

Amazon.ca

Sucker Punch has Moulin Rouge's freewheeling disrespect for genre, cramming dragons, zombie steampunk World War I German soldiers, robotic samurai, military helicopters, and gun-toting, scantily clad superbabes into a series of hyperviolent fantasies that spring from the undulations of a schizoid madhouse inmate. Sucker Punch also has The Matrix's disdain for the laws of physics, as svelte young women in tight clothes leap, spin, twirl, kick, and crash in slow-motion spectacles that only vaguely resemble how bodies actually move in space. On top of that, Sucker Punch has a video game's disinterest in characters, narrative, sensible dialogue, or sense of any kind, really--anything that might get in the way of the next spasm of bullets and sword slashes. A troubled girl nicknamed Baby Doll (the preposterously glossy Emily Browning, whose china-doll looks previously appeared in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events), traumatized by her impending lobotomy, reimagines her asylum as a hybrid cabaret/brothel. She and her just as whimsically monikered fellow inmates (played by Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, and Jamie Chung) use their feminine wiles and some kick-ass gyrations to escape… but things go very, very wrong. The relentless eye-candy comes from director Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300), whose interest in decorative grime and glistening skin seems to short-circuit everything else. But there's no denying that eye-candy does abound. Also featuring Scott Glenn in the Yoda-esque role of "Wise Man." --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars Mindblowing in its Awesomeness June 28 2011
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Holy crap on a cracker. Alright, so I already dug Watchmen. I'm not too much into modern movies usually, especially ones with a lot of CG, but Watchmen really got me. It was 50% the comic and 50% the style of the movie. So obviously I wanted to see what Snyder would do next and then came Sucker Punch, this time an original story.

Holy crap, I say again! I thought it was going to be all visuals with no worthwhile story. But I was happily wrong on that one. Yes, Sucker Punch is at least 50% there to punch you in the eyeballs and titilate your every dream. Which actually kind of works into the theme of the story. But there's a cool quest storyline as well as some character backstory stuff that all ties together. I mean, this director's cut is 128 minutes long. There's plenty of room there for action, but when it goes back to story, it's just as interesting. In fact, as much as I enjoy the visuals of the action scenes (I'm a total sucker for steampunk) I felt the movie was at its best when concentrating on our five heroines.

One of the biggest criticisms of this movie is the whole exploitation angle. Well, I think any of the five characters in this movie would happily kick your tail for that. Is there an excessive amount of skin? I have to say slightly. But only slightly, because it while it is unnecessary to the plot, it is not excessive. Hell, the movie is so tame that it even silenced an "f" bomb in the dialogue. What movie does that these days?

I also loved the fact that this is a movie with five heroines, kicking butt and taking names. Sure, Scott Glen is there as a guiding figure. But he's more of an Obi-Wan Kenobi, he's not involved in the kicking of butts nor the taking of names.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who really got punched? June 27 2011
Format:Blu-ray
The extent to which this film has been cast aside and misunderstood even within those that makes claims as to having enjoyed it is unparalleled. To begin there is not one ounce of true exploitation in Sucker Punch. Snyder carefully chose his shots, costumes etc as to avoid becoming a T & A film. The point of showing girls wrapped in costumes representative of fetish was to attract a certain crowd and illustrate a point; fantasy is fun and without consequence if you understand the boundaries of fantasy. If you begin to loose sight of the boundaries of fantasy you begin to apply those concepts to the real world and there are consequences. Hence, no real death in the fantasy world until it leaks into the "real world" and starts to break it down. Movie goers, consumers, etc are obsessed with over-sensualizing teen girls (ie From Annette Funicello to Brooke Shields to Brittany Spears up through Miley Cyrus). By doing this teen girls grow up as prisoners of their own sexuality and are taught to "empower" themselves with it against the brute force of men. A subjective empowerment all women will enact on more than one occasion and that all women will loathe and/or enjoy at one time or another; sometimes both. That is one of the many questions Snyder poses; where is the line and what messages are we sending, specifically in Hollywood where T & A is the name of the game for most starlets.

There is also a lot of criticism for the so-called lack of inspired imagery; orcs, nazis, robots, etc. Again, this was the point. Tired of X-Men 5, Batman 6, Harry Potter 7, reboot, redeux, and remakes? Where something old is made new again? Snyder again was addressing the collapsing of the fibre of Hollywood and admitting, as with the girls, it's all fun but what is the cost?

4.0 out of 5 stars Be prepared! July 28 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Fantastic blend of cool imagery, amazing sound and music.
The girls are amazing and the films layers intricately woven by the director.
It's an event.
The blu ray extended version is the one to buy of course as there's more music, action and menace. I'm not happy with the triple disc edition though. Why do I want the shorter version on Dvd? Also, I wouldn't need the shorter version on blu ray either if it weren't for the fact that the animated extras ( and a short soundtrack extra that's not worth watching) do not appear on the extended version! So I have to keep this disc just for them. Why not have both versions on one disc? Also, the maximum movie mode is good but I wanted documentaries separate or the ability to view in full screen!
So the extras are a huge disappointment. Still, the film is awesome so I'll live!
Long live Babydoll!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! June 15 2011
Format:DVD
I loved this movie! The action, and fantasy elements in it were awesome. My guy friend and I went to see it twice in IMax at the movie theatre, and we can't wait to see it on DVD, with the special features, and such. A lot of my other friends didn't really like the movie though. I guess it's the type of movie you either really like, or don't. My favourite character was Sweet Pea, and I thought the movie had a cool soundtrack that went perfectly with the action scenes. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Future cult classic June 28 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Where do I start? Multiple cliched genres all in one ball of wax. Beautiful and stunning visuals! Hard hitting soundtrack with an homage to classic rock songs! What's not to like? From a viewers experience it can be cerebral exercise in questioning and altering reality. One can read into it whatever one wants. Or, it can be an heart pounding titillating roller coaster ride. Even at parties this can be put on as a beautiful music video. The only thing to be lamented is that there was not more merchandise marketed for it. That, and the movie could have been a little longer. For all the fanboys they will just have to settle for the excellent DVD release. The making of, outtakes, and blooper reels should be worth the cost of the steel book edition alone. This is a future cult classic in the making. It will set a new precedent for what's to come in movie making. Whether it is considered bubble gum or a decedent dessert either way this movie was meant to be savored and appreciated. Buy it!
