After seeing the trailer and previous Zack Snyder films, I was reallylooking forward to this picture. The first 10 minutes were amazing andI felt, that premises for a great movie was set. However after leavingthe theater, I have to say that I was having mixed feelings.
Plot itself was quite easy and hopefully you have already read thesynopsis, so I won't rewrite it. I can't say that there was anythingparticularly wrong with it, however I kept having the feeling, thatfirstly, they would have worked much better as short films, secondlyall the episodes have already been used in other pictures as BatmanBegins, All Quiet On Western Front and Lord Of The Rings. Storywise Iwas constantly waiting for something more, something what was justhanding in the air, but never delivered. Thirdly, the characters nevergrew to their full potential. We didn't learn anything about Blondie,Amber, Blue and Dr. Gorski. Rockets and Sweet Peas background felt alsoincomplete. What I want to say, was that I never got the chance to growinto any of the charters.
On the other hand, visuals and soundtrack were solid. Zack Snyder knowshow to manipulate the picture and bring every single detail to ourattention. CGI and camera-work were great and unforgettable. Even ifyou did not know who was the director, colors and eerie atmospheredefinitely had Snyders signature on it. Soundtrack was great andconsidering that music played a big role in the movie, was well chosen.In addition, bound with visuals, soundtrack created a memorable world.All in all, unfortunately this movie will be remembered by its visualsjust like 300. Like my friend said, it was like a meal, that lookeddelicious, but lacked the taste.
Zack Snyder is one of my favourite directors at the moment, and on thedirecting front in this film he does quite well. However, the scriptand story for this film seem to be nothing more than a case for hiscrazy (but pretty awesome) fight sequences. Basically, Zack Snydershould stick to the directing and bring to life a story which showcaseshis talents better.
It would have been better if it was higher age rated, like a 15 or 18rating in the UK rather than a 12A.
It's Watchmen/300 mixed with Dragon Ball Z or something. Quite fun towatch, but nothing more.
I'm huge fan of Zack Snyder I loved 300 I had mixed feelings withWatchmen(but thats another story) and with Sucker Punch I was reallyhyped, mainly because of the girls, samurais, Nazi zombies and all thatstuff. I didn't expect a complex or even great story but in terms ofaction its delivers, you wont be disappointed. The action is there,cinematography is great, the CGI is amazing. All the dream sequencesare action packed and very rewarding, my favorite fight was the firstencounter with the giant samurais. Emily browning is really, really hotas well as the other girls and they make a good job with the "ok"script they were given to work with.
And now the bad things,The big reason the movie is flawed is The storyI felt I was watching a bad version of Brazil and Inception I neverfelt the danger or some kind of tension when the girls are fighting,maybe its not the idea. The characters needed more development. CarlaGugino is wow really bad I almost laughed. I didn't like the soundtrackoverall sometimes it works and sometimes not. I don't like how ZackSnyder chooses to make like a music video scene in his movies, mainlybecause the music is bad.
So overall just see it as an action movie and nothing else and you willbe pleased but if your are expecting a very good story(Brazil,inception), or great performances you will be very disappointed.
I have been a fan to Mr. Zack since the movie 300. A total of 5 yearsin making will be paid off when you watch this one. I love the gradientcolors, stunning CGI and video game based hack and slash stunts. Plotis simple, but the execution is tough. Zack had done a beautiful job inpresenting this movie with his own glamor style. Emily does justice tothe character with her cheesy looks and decent acting. The rest of thecrew is apt to their roles. Music is very nice which will mix up to thescenes. Overall an average story with great screenplay with gorgeousvisuals which makes you to stick to your seat. A brave 8/10 for thisbaby doll.
