REVIEW: Sucker Punch


The film centres around Baby Doll who is unfairly admitted to a mental asylum by her evil step father. As Baby fights for freedom with feisty Rocket (Jena Malone), reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), Amber (Jamie Chung) and Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), we step into three alternate realities. The girls attempt to escape Blue Jones (Oscar Isaac) by following Baby’s plan, step by step collecting items which will unlock the doors.

Sucker Punch is a Marmite film, if you like films such as Watchmen and Sin City, then you will love it. Otherwise avoid. Once you get past the Marmite test, there are some definite flaws, the action parts of the film become repetitive and annoying. On the whole though, I enjoyed the film for its originality, suspense and plot twists. The gothic comic book style will draw in Batman and Spider Man film fans.
