Sucker Punch

2nd April: Sucker Punch

A teenage girl is sent to a mental institution and to cope with it all she invents worlds within worlds which help her plan her escape.

A very weird film. This film is confusing, wired and sexy. The main story of the mental institution and the whore house is boring. Just the girls bickering and planning. However to cut through this soggy cake of film are four of the best action sequences ever. To plan their escape they are required to get 5 items, (yes its very video game oriented) and the 4 sequences they have to get these are fantastic. From Samurai, Nazis, Dragons and Robots. I'm not going to spoil any of them but they were awesome.
The cast definitely had the sexy quality down, but I don't think any of them were any good as actresses. Very wooden and very stiff performances. If this film was just those 4 sequences on their own, I'd still have seen them.

Worth seeing? Maybe, but only once.

Overall: 6/10
