Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Director Zack Snyder brings us his fifth feature film this weekend - Sucker Punch - which we've been excited to see since Comic-Con last year. Going totally original this time, he takes us on a fantastical adventure into the imagination of a girl hoping to escape a mental hospital. Emily Browning stars as "Baby Doll" and is joined by Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung. But is it any good? Did it live up to your expectations? How was the action? If you've seen it, leave a comment below and let us know what you thought of Sucker Punch!
To fuel the fire big time on this one (since this movie seems to be polarizing people), I actually liked Sucker Punch, I enjoyed it for what it was, I was entertained by the visually astonishing, badass action sequences, and I had a good time watching it. That said, I do think the story itself is not only very confusing and messy, but really derails right at the end. It's not her story? So why were we watching it!? Despite that criticism, I don't disqualify the entire movie, because I really enjoyed watching everything else and I loved the various video game-like worlds that she imagined. Visually, it's an astounding movie, but story-wise, it's mediocre.
What did you think of Sucker Punch? An incomprehensible mess or awesome action movie?
