‘Sucker Punch’ delivers an uppercut and then some

Springs Hosting

It has gaping plot holes. The acting sucks. It’s all visuals and no substance. It plays out like a video game. Blah blah blah. Clearly Sucker Punch is not for the cinema elite. Does it have a few problems? Yes. By the time the credits role, do you care? Not in the least.

Sucker Punch stars Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung as five institutionalized girls who must retreat into their inner-psyches in order to escape their prison. Along the way, they fight metaphorical mechanized-Nazi-zombies, gatling gun wielding giant samurai, lethal robots, hordes of orcs and fire-breathing dragons with an arsenal of machine guns, katanas, battle axes and robo-tech. Um, hell yeah!

Emily Browning left much to be desired as the lead character, Baby Doll; however, Jena Malone and Abbie Cornish delivered solid performances as the sisters Rocket and Sweat Pea. And Oscar Isaac’s villainous Blue Jones was deliciously evil.

Slightly nonsensical? Sure. But totally worth it? Absolutely. Read the full review here.
