Sucker Punch review

This is the story of a girl (later referred to as Baby Doll) who's mother has died and her and her sister have been left in the care of her greedy, and apparently pedophile, step-father who attempts to do awful things to them. When she fights back she gets put into a mental institution, and this is where the movie starts to no longer make sense.

The scene goes from her being in a mental institute to being in a showgirl style bar with several other girls who are dancers. Baby Doll is going to be given to the "High Roller" in three days, but doesn't plan on sticking around that long. Through her dancing, she receives a message and a plan on how to get out, and with the help of the other girls she sets her plan in motion.

This movie is from the same people who brought us 300, so you know the action scenes are going to be very stylized, but that is what makes this movie so good. Once combat scene puts them in the middle of a medieval warzone, flying around in a B-52 and fighting the bad guys on the ground with MP5s and other high powered weaponry. The only bad thing I have to say about this movie is that the strange switch in location and characters makes no sense and then it switches back at the end.

If you are a fan of stylized action, or just like watching a group of women kick serious but, then this movie is for you!

2011-07-08 [Lord Josmar]: I liked it. I just bought the extended version with 17+ ADDITIONAL MINUTES OF AWESOME, NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN FOOTAGE!!!!11!!1!, but my blu-ray player is upstairs so I had to watch the theatrical version.

The movie is a thinker though, so be prepared.
