SUCKER PUNCH (2011)
Thiz movie is my most anticipated movie of the year and ends up exactly as I expected before. It’s a mega visual feast that I have ever seen since ”The Matrix” (1999). In the hand of Zack Snyder (Director), everything has reached to a new height of adrenaline rush. I’m talking about the visualization aspect here. Back in 2006 when ”300” was booming, people kept questioning whether Snyder was only able to gather 300 muscular men to do those macho things? Well, now for the answer he brings us five sexy deadly ladies to fight against giant samurai and vicious dragon in alternative World War II! An innocent girl named Baby Doll (Emily Browning) is accused as a rebel and now placed in a mental hospital. In that place, she meets Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), Rocket (Jena Malone), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens) and Amber (Jamie Chung). Together, they plan an escape route. To accomplish the mission, they have to collect five items which are a map, fire, a knife, a key and one last mysterious element. Emily Browning is perfectly Cast as Baby Doll, her character is so fragile and extremely lethal at the same time. Other Cast members worth mentioning here are Carla Gugino, Oscar Isaac, Jon Hamm and the most unforgettable appearance, Scott Glenn as the Wise Man. I love the opening scene so much which describes how Baby Doll is oppressed by her abusive stepfather, the sequence tells so effectively dramatic, dark comical and elegant. The camera movement is dynamic, the transition from one point to another is effective, and the music is perfect. Love every minute of it. For the ending, you might feel a little bit disappointed especially if you expect something more, but for me it is just perfect! The ending put us in a floating situation and makes you keep wondering even when you were walking out of the theater. I always enjoy the movie which can dive into a blur fantasy and reality world at the same time and then explains cleverly what is the connection between them. Thiz kind of movie always utters some new hidden philosophy. Just remember, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”
