Sucker Punch will Knock You Out (put you to sleep)
Well guys Sucker Punch has come and frankly I have to agree with most of the critics out there on this one. Don't worry I haven't sold out, its just that this movie is almost universally bad.
There are great scenes, the fantasy worlds are beautiful to watch and the fights, action and explosions are just what I'd expect from Snyder. Herein lies the problem however, what Snyder does best is spectacle and exhiliration, he can make good action scenes but when it comes to the spaces between he fails at making interesting backstory.
Even with five chicks sharing enough clothing to cover a sheet of letter paper he manages to make the talking boring and cheesy.
Don't get me wrong if we cut out 100min of talking and left the fighty, explodey shooty pewpew bits It would have been awesome.
