Sucker Punch (2011)
Sucker Punch aka Zach Synder losing his damn mind!!!
Ahhh! Many this movie sucked hard, I'd been hearing some really bad buzz on this move and after seeing the 20 percentage rating on rotten tomatoes I was worried. And what do you know everyone was right. Let's start off with the problems this movie has which includes a sexist female empowerment image, a video game style story, the most god awful cover songs you'll ever hear and really cheesy dialogue and thin characters. The story deals with Babydoll who's mother dies literally in the first five minutes, man I guess she wanted out of this movie bad. She's paid by Emily Browning who you may know from "A Series of Unforunate Events" with Jim Carrey. And after he stepfather finds out the mother left everything to babydoll and her sister he trys to rape the two girls but while trying to fend off the father babydoll acidentially shoots her sister. Her father takes advantage of this and sends her to a mental hospital where he's set up a plan with the warden to have babydoll lobotomized in 3 days and she's only got that amount of time to escape. So basically babydoll can retreat into another world were it's basically a burlesque show/ the front for a gun running operation? I don't know ask Synder, there the other girls which include Jamie Chung, Vanessa Hungens, Abbie Cornish and Jena Malone all hatch a plan to escape the asylum before the doctor played by Jon Hamm and I'm crying holding my box set of Mad Men as I say that arrives to lobotomize Babydoll. However Madam Gorski who is played by Carla Gugino in what will for sure be a razzie nominated performance as a polish dancing instructor which sounds more like a Russian accent and like she should be hunting moose and squirrel tells babydoll she can go into another deeper reality (and this the part where they still from a great movie Inception)bastards. Anyway this is a hyper reality filled with dragons, Nazi Zombies, and robots on a monorail to Saturn. No I'm not joking that actually part of the movie. When Babydoll enters this reality she is greeted by Scott Glenn who's doing a really bad David Caradine impression and tells Babydoll she must find five items to set herself free which include a knife, a key, a map, a lighter, and a mysterious fifth item, hmmm I wonder what it will be!!! Anyway here are the problems with this movie first the main problem with this multi layered structure is that is somewhat types in the fantasy world it does not matter at all because it's all just a fantasy so you don't care at all about what's going on. Also I'm not joking when I say the first ten minute of this movie are in slow motion I'm not kidding. Also the movie is very pretentious and while your watching the movie you feel the enigma coming off the movie and how there's no original ideas in this movie there's the LOTR tribute section filled with Orcs from LOTR and the Dragon from the Hobbit. Then there's the Nazi's from Call of duty zombies and the robots from every single science fiction movie ever made, nothing original. Also the movie just doesn't make any damn sense I mean why is Babydoll having fantasy's about zombies, samurai and dragons does she like that stuff, it's never explained it just stuff that Zack Synder liked when he was 13 years old. Also the movie is supposed to take place in the 1950's or 1960's but in the fantasy sequences there are killing Nazi zombies with M16's and other weapons that had'nt even been invented yet. Also Synder himself has even said that he wants this to be a female empowerment movie and his wife is even co-producer on the film. I felt so offended by this I mean really I have no problem with a man making a female empowerment movie I mean just look at James Cameron he's made plenty of strong female characters like Sarah Conor and Ellen Ripley. But when showing crotch shots every five seconds, girls getting raped, giving guys lap dances and fighting in their bra and panties it just feels offense and insulting. The movie also has a sappy ending and a video game like structure where Scott Glenn basically tells the Girl there objective and from there they go on a linear path defeat some bad guys and reach the objective. There's one thing I'll give Snyder credit for which is he is a great visual director and I'll give it up to the storyboard artist who drew it but there's absolutely nothing original in the visual department people have not see before. So overall this is a mess, a pretentious mess I'm surprised it got a pg-13 rating I heard it was originally rated R but was heavily cut by Snyder I mean all the references to rape it's ridiculous and plus the cover songs in the brother are awful! I'm going to close by saying that Superman is probably sitting in the fortress of solitude right now thinking I'm so screwed!!!
