Raw, Brutal, & Hilarious
5 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For a "gansta" genre film, this was so much more enjoyable than the usual empty fare. This movie is alternately shocking and goofy, the almost cartoony humor setting you up again and again for a jab to the nose of brutality. The characters aren't quite realistic and not quite archetypal, either, giving the film the feeling of a fable. The story of Mike's attempt to redeem himself from a life of depravity was compelling, to me, and although the dialog was at times pretty rough around the edges, Paris Campbell deftly handles the material. His performance carries the film, to be sure, with touches of subtlety that make him sympathetic and human. The Christ imagery was inventive, and suggested to me that perhaps the whole film was actually an analogy for his inner struggle. The use of color really added to the sense of watching a graphic novel or comic book, and the Beatnuts' soundtrack was electric, driving the energy of the film forward from scene to scene and accenting both the fun and the sharp edges of the movie. All in all, I was impressed by Sucker Punch, even if it is rough around the edges in several places.
