Sucker Punch

You Will Be Unprepared.


Sucker Punch
Apparently one should not try to explain this plot because it just leads to problems, but I need to, so here goes. After losing part of her family, a twenty year old young woman is put into a mental asylum, on the short list for a lobotomy. She makes friends with some other young women there, and they embark on fantasy voyages, borrowed from video games, as they seek to recover five objects which will help them escape. The reviewers generally felt that the audience is getting a sucker punch here.

111 minutes.

Pete Hammond quote iconSnyder clearly has talent and a great eye, but his pedantic, uninspired concept gives us nothing to hang on to.

eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconThe dream-warrior pretense allows Snyder to make four or five bombastic mini-blockbusters for the bloated price of one.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconIt is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

ScreenIt
T. Durgin quote iconI actually wish there was a suitable story that believably pits five women dressed as horny Catholic schoolgirls against German zombies and fire-breathing dragons. But this ain't it.

Tomatometer quote iconIt's technically impressive and loaded with eye-catching images, but without characters or a plot to support them, all of Sucker Punch's visual thrills are for naught.
