Sunday, March 27, 2011


"Sucker Punch", the latest film by writer-director Zack Snyder ("300", "Watchmen") and is his first film that's based on his own source material.

This kick-ass popcorn epic is an action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl (Emily Browning) whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality.

Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary.

Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls—the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (a surprisingly good Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)—to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm).

The girls engage in Live-action-Anime style warfare against everything from giant samurais to zombie Nazi soldiers,. Forget NEO's classic "Guns...lots of guns" line. These pixie fem fatles cut down armies of hostiles with a virtual weapons arsenal.

Together, with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), they flip wigs and snap necks all the way to freedom...or do they?

If not for anything else, go to hear the awesome soundtrack featuring bad ass electronica remixes of ANNIE LENNOX, BJORK and others. See this in theaters NOW. It's worth it.


Ticket WORTH: FULL PRICE. Just pay it.

Rental?: Oh hell yeah.

BUY THE DVD?: Oh hell yeah. With all the bells & whistles.
