According to director Zach Snyder, Emily Browning's character Baby Doll (who is supposedly naive to guns) shows off way more experience with handling a gun than she should have. She had already received intense weapons training for the action scenes, and was unable to unlearn her prior experience for the opening scene. See more »

I have been absolutely pumped for this movie since I first saw the trailer for it last summer. I'm fresh from viewing it, and I have to say that it's not quite what I expected, though not necessarily in a bad way. To those who haven't seen it, two words: Do it. But be open to the fact that it will almost certainly not be exactly what you expect. Although it looks like a somewhat mindless kick ass, eye candy flick, don't be fooled: there is a pretty good story here, and its deeper than your first impression of it will be, also. Oh, and don't try and predict the ending.
After you watch it, you will need to process what actually happened, but put your thinking cap on- because its deeper than you think.
All in all, the acting was good enough (though it didn't blow my mind), the visuals are stellar (did blow my mind) and the soundtrack is amazing (where is my mind?). Definitely worth seeing. 8/10
