Movie Review: Sucker Punch


Sucker Punch take things I love such as glittery make up, sexy costumes, and fantasy novels- and wrap it in a giant ridiculousness featuring actresses who play mental institution crazies hotter than models I see in an audition.

Emily Browning played the main character, Baby Doll, in a Sailor Moon outfit who was running around and killing things like there was a ferret rummaging in her underwear. Baby Doll had friends who joined to escape from the mental institution, which was really a brothel. Because crazy people can coherently dance in public- even the really crazy ones that require a lobotomy. And all the mentally crazy ladies looked like they've just finished a photoshoot with the Victoria's Secret Pink catalog at all times. And this is when I say: "I know you are, but what am I?"

But it was because everything was so ridiculous that the movie was acceptable, not "good", but acceptable. It had great visual and I really enjoyed the music. It was also entirely appropriate for what is essentially a Final Fantasy wet dream for a comic book store guy who collect Japanese cartoon figurines.

Best line in the movie "If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything". I give this movie 3/5 Sailor Moon figurines.
