Sucker Punch – Review


Following the death of her mother, Babydoll (Emily Browning) is framed by her stepfather for the death of her sister, putting her on the fast track for a lobotomy at a dark creepy Asylum, Lennox House, home to other hapless girls (Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung) skype herunterladen windows 7.

Just as a thick needle is levelled at her eyeball, ready to be hammered into her brain, the house transforms into a seedy nightclub, where the girls are instructed by an Eastern European dancer (Carla Gugino) and enslaved by the brutal proprietor, Blue (Oscar Isaac) quizlet app.

Babydoll quickly becomes a valuable asset, attracting top clientele and swooning them with her performance. But everytime she steps on the dancing stage, she instantly enters a surreal world of her imagination, where she battles iron-clad samurais in an Asian Temple, Nazis in WWII and fire-breathing, flying dragons and an army of Robocop-style fighters download futura font.

In those dreams she meets a Wise Man (Scott Glenn) who presents her with five items she would need to escape the house. She shares the information with the other girls and they conspire a perilous plan that could set them free ebooken kobo.


Like Zack Snyder’s other movies, such as 300 and Watchmen, Sucker Punch is visually stunning, offering spectacular action scenes and dazzling CGI work emoticons facebook. He has proved his aptitude to tell a story strictly with images, like in the era of Silent Film. Using deft camera moves and precise framing, he skilfully tells Babydoll’s background story, before she arrives at the Asylum, without any dialogue gutes schreibprogramm kostenlosen.

However, Snyder has yet again failed to utilise his technical virtuosity to tell a story with a substance and emotional weight that would bond with his audience avira kostenlos antivirus herunterladen. Instead of developing Babydoll’s character and her interaction with the people around her, he thrusts her into a mayhem of bloody battlefields, explosions, spearing and sword fighting in a ludicrous surreal world that doesn’t unveil much about her personality or advance the story, because she is merely dreaming, and she dreams a lot gps routes garmin downloaden.

And since nobody dies dreaming, the action scenes, where Babydoll and her friends are plunged into perilous, deadly situations, are devoid of suspense and thrill psp games for free. Therefore, the needlessness to be concerned for the girls induces a lack of interest in their story. After a while, the film becomes painfully boring and exhausting to watch as it thunders to a confusing end geburtstagswünsche zum herunterladen kostenlos.

Sucker Punch feels like a video game, abstract and detached from really, where the cause and effect rules don’t apply; it’s an utter chaos with a lot of noise.
