[spoiler]I was looking forward to this film, I was really excited. But then out comes the horde of bad reviews and the critics saying it was shit, and blah blah blah. I didn't let it bother me, because I knew there was at least an ounce of awesomeness in Sucker Punch. I was right to think so. Although it wasn't exactly coherent in the storytelling department, that's not to say it wasn't a good film. Damn was it a good film. It's stylistic visuals and over the top action was enough to keep me entertained for 125 minutes.

Although it was a little confusing at parts, and some of it didn't make sense, it was like an odd version of Inception. It's multiple realities made it feel like some sort of dream, and frankly seemed a little too much. The 'dance' that Baby Doll (Portrayed by Emily Browning) did to enter this metaphorical reality was pretty stupid. It seemed unnecessary and unwanted although without these scenes, the film wouldn't much at all.

The performances were nothing to write home about, especially that of Emily Browning, who seemed brain-dead from the outset, but evil guy 'Blue' played by Oscar Isaac brings a certain charm and class to the table.

Zack Snyder has had an impressive run with films in the past, and Sucker Punch is no exception.

Sucker Punch is a somewhat odd film, but it's gorgeous visuals and outstanding action scenes give it that much needed boost in order to cover up the somewhat lackluster storyline.

Sucker Punch gets a 5.5/10 from Movieville.
