Story: She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls—the outspoken Rocket, the street-smart Blondie, the fiercely loyal Amber and the reluctant Sweet Pea—to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue, Madam Gorski and the High Roller. (Warner Bros. Pictures)
Bottom Line: SUCKER PUNCH - as in you’re a SUCKER for wanting to see this movie and you should PUNCH yourself in the face instead. They spent a lot of money to make this so it equates to nothing more than cinematic vomit…only wrapped in a shiny bow. The dialogue laughable, the characters uninteresting, the acting horrendous and the story scrapped together from dozens of other ideas from movies like INCEPTION, THE MATRIX, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, SIN CITY, BLACK SWAN, KILL BILL, LORD OF THE RINGS, SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW, REIGN OF FIRE, BATMAN BEGINS, IROBOT, GI JOE and that’s to name but a few. SUCKER PUNCH is a boring, non-sensical, amped-up, tone-deaf, hyper-active, unoriginal, over-caffeinated, self-indulgent, all-over-the-map, check-your-watch-multiple-times-and-consider-walking-out waste of celluloid space – and easily the worst movie I’ve seen in years.
