"Sucker Punch" (2011)

The scoop on "Sucker Punch" including photos, review, trailer, posters, news, interviews, and cast list for this action drama written and directed by Zack Snyder and starring Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, Carla Gugino, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung, and Jon Hamm.

Movie Synopsis: Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared. “Sucker Punch” is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary.

She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls—the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)—to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm).

Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey—if they succeed—will set them free.

"Sucker Punch" Movie Review
I've been a fan of Zack Snyder's since his "Dawn of the Dead" remake. Loved "300," thought he did an admirable job tackling a nearly unfilmable movie with his big screen adaptation of "Watchmen," and I believe "Legend of the Guardians" was incredibly gorgeous and a faithful version of Kathryn Lasky's "Guardians of Ga'Hoole" books. But "Sucker Punch," Snyder's twisted fantasy tale set in a Vermont mental institute in the '60s, left me wondering what it was Snyder was trying to do and disappointed over the fact his storytelling skills let him down this time.
