Movie Review: Sucker Punch

e

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.

  1. Thought it looked amazing when I first saw the previews a few months ago, but the more I read about it, the less I wanted to see it. I still want to see it, but I might wait for the DVD release...

  2. I watched the movie trailer last week and read quite negative things about it! But the visuals look amazing.

  3. I saw this too... the visuals were cool but the story pretty much sucked for me. I thought it could have been good, but it was too all over the place and I didn't like the end.

    XOXO

  4. The outfits, the music, and the special effects definitely ruled!! I loved the make-up and the random cool quotes but that plot drove me nuts. It bounced around too much. I thought they under-used John Hamm too. =)

  5. Good to know that it was an okay movie. I kept seeing the ad for it in theaters and like half way through felt like I was on some kind of acid trip and was left wondering wtf the movie was even about. I guess I'll go see now! x

  6. My finace would love to read your review on this; he's been wanting to see it but I thought it would be crap. It looks good though after reading this!

  8. I enjoyed this movie movie there were so many plotholes and unanswered questions. I feel like with some tighter editing the movie could've made this movie a lot better. I'm fairly excited about the DVD too b/c I heard there is a dance cut scene that didn't make it into the theater release. The fact you never actually see any dancing in the theater release annoyed me :P

    I think it was ok - girls were smoking and I LOVED the makeup and clothes. I feel like Frank Miller gets so caught up in visuals he forgets that a tight coherent storyline is the difference between a good movie and a great one -_- Whateves, Emily Browning is my girl crush so I'm happy I watched it.

    Whatever, I can see gameboys everywhere drooling over the film anyway ahahh

  14. I don't know what I think about this movie.
    I can't decide if I want to see it, or if I am just kind of "eh" about it.
    I'll probably see it. I'm a movie whore.

  15. i had read online that the movie is supposed to be about empowering women, blah blah. but that it featured a lot of "women being sexy-somewhat sexist" scenes. so thank you for the review because you pretty much wrapped it up like i probably would have.

    you know what i do want to see though? Hanna!

    thanks also for the wonderful comments you left on my site about finding the inspiration in blogging. it really is a full-time job!

  16. I haven't actually heard of this movie, except for a few people saying they've been wanting to see it on FB, so I have no idea what this is, haha! However, Emily Browning looks so grown up! Or maybe I'm just way behind, idk. Gosh :)

    and now that I've got some stuff out of the way at work (which is where I do most of my blogging stuff) I'm going to come by more often! I just love your blog!

  17. Just watched this movie last night and I completely agree with everything you said, lol. I wasn't used to seeing Vanessa talking tough using a machine gun and shame that Jamie didn't get many fight scenes despite she probably has the most experience out of all the girls.

  18. I haven't even HEARD of this movie before this!

  19. I haven't seen it and I don't really intend to. I am not into fantasy movies, but I like the quote at the end.
    You're right, this movie is probably for geeks that fantasize about girls whipping their ass.

  21. I NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE. I see the streamer like everyday and I want to.

  22. Woo, crazy and hot...the type of girls you don't take home to mom, but you might want to take them somewhere to "paw". Bam! I've had that old joke in my back pocket, just waiting for the right time to use it.

    I've always liked that "stand for something" line. =)

  35. You explained this perfectly! It really was like Final Fantasy and very reminiscent of Sailor Moon. The whole film was silly but thank goodness for the visuals otherwise a walk out would be going on. haha. Great review!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. AhH I forgot! In regards to your comment to me, yeah that was a pretty good part where "Blondie" gets it. Blondie, yeah, what is up with that?! The raven beauty is called Blondie, nice. I wish Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung got more screen time. I probably would have been a lot more interested. : )

  37. I guess I have to see this movie... I am always fascinated by such ridiculous and unusual things...

  46. You know I was never interested in seeing this movie, mostly because I had no idea what it was about since the previews and the trailers told me nothing. However, after reading the article in NYLON I kinda want to see it. At least it's acceptable...I mean it doesn't look like it would be an Oscar worthy movie but maybe once it come sout on DVD i'll put on my Netflix list lol
