Sucker Punch delivers

Saw Sucker Punch last night with Laucha at Melbourne Museum IMAX, one of the perks of being an employee, free IMAX!! Anyways, I was dying to see this movie as the build up trailers made it look like a Zach Snyder tour de force however when the first reviews came out they were less than favourable. Even large multimedia sites such as IGN whose opinions I largely agree with, weren’t fans of the movie. I kept reading things like, “If you’re a 14 year old male, you will love it else avoid it.”

So it was with some trepidation that I suggested to the Laucha that we see it and she agreed to. Well…we have to say we were completely blown away by Sucker Punch…amazing, exciting, inventive and original with a nice twist and a great message running throughout especially at the end! Laucha completely loved it which was great for me as I thought the over the top scenes would be too much for her but no, all in the context of the movie and aided by the fact that actually isn’t any blood in the movie, well not really. And don’t get me started on the soundtrack…amazing and also great to see two Australian females in the lead and one from my hometown, Melbourne.

To anyone thinking about it, don’t think, go see it not expecting to analyse it afterwards like a philosophy major. You will be entertained.

    I loved this movie! Emily Browning and Abbie Cornish were excellent! As per usual the critics I think get carried away with their own egos and judgement of the world…I hope it doesn’t put people off because its a great flick!
