There are many who do not appreciate this film or maybe don't understand this film so instantly give a bad review. They haven't watched the film properly, perhaps not immersed themselves into the full Sucker Punch experience.
I was looking forward to seeing this film on Blu Ray but started to get doubts whether it was actually any good or not due to the love it/hate it consensus of reviewers. I'm in the love it category and glad I bought it.
The film is multi-layered and the story is just what is needed for a big fantasy spectacle; an excuse to throw everything, including dragons, steam-powered NAZIs, sci-tech and giant samurai, in to the pot and bring to a boil.
There are some that rave about the sexy-clad female cast, which, being a man, is no bad thing but does not detract from what the movie is about.
I won't ruin the story but do expect fantasy within fantasy within reality; rather than telling the story in reality we are shown an exciting version in fantasy that symbolises the real events unfolding. Twist/thought provocation included.
As for the quality of the picture and sound, nice and crisp clear picture in both live action and CGI with excellent sound work and music, both incidental and song choice - Bjork's Army of Me has never sounded so good.
The whole package reminded me a lot of director Zach Snyder's previous work on Watchmen so fans of that may well enjoy this, along with fans of games such as Call of Duty and Mortal Kombat.
Overall, one of the best viewing experiences this decade.

This film is much like the girls in the movie.... Mental!
It's as if Director Zack Snyder ( Dawn Of The Dead Remake, 300, Watchmen) has picked his favourite films and other things that look cool and slammed them into one. The plot is off it's head, it should not work, but somehow it does perfectly as we get swept off into Babydolls fantasy worlds and end up watching the girls of the mental home fight off Gas Powered Zombie Germains in the trenches of WW1 armed with state of the art weapons. Fight giant ancient Japanese Warriors with mounted gattleing guns. Get attacked of Dragons in middle earth while they fight back in a B25 bomber and defuse a nuclear bomb on a train full of ninja robots. All these fantasy elemements supposed to have something to do with the girls tasks as in steal a map, lighter and a knife, but to be honest it's just a reson to throw loads of cool looking things at the screen. Each of the fantasy worlds have it's own soundtrack and the music is simply brilliant, adding to this the sight of Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudges and Jamie Chung scantly dressed dishing out death and destruction is enough to make any fourteen year old boy froff at the mouth. This is a movie for the X-Box generation, and although it may be shallow and style over substance the movie is truly breath taking in it's ambition, but underneath the surface lurks are very dark side of abuse, that is hinted at, and although it only scratches the surface to give the film the 12 cert is a little lean, as this is a strong 12 and not a fluffy family film.
The Blue Ray is amazing and this does offer the much better extended cut and as usual has plenty of great bonus features.
This is a mind blowing experience that may not be every ones cup of tea, but it's the ambition on the screen as well as the eye candy that truly resonates.
It's mental, twisted, but brilliant. Just go with the flow!

This has to be one of the most visually stunning films in years, the effects are top notch and the action is fast and furious!! There is a incredible originality to the story which is a times very exciting and sad at the same time, the cast is fantastic all of the girls are amazing and beautiful, this is a must see and one of the best films of the past year, the extended cut is 17 minutes longer so you get more action than the theatrical release. If you want to escape the usual run of films that are out this will offer something very unique.

Sucker punch is tour de force in style but much less in substance. It seems the way director Zack Snyder had taken with his movies. It makes me worried about the fate of new Superman movie helmed by him. What Snyder does is that he takes the girls imagination (hallucination) and turns them into scenes of battles with lots of special effects. Even though the actresses may seem attractive to portion of audiences and battles are choreographed to please the same audience the plot is so thin and performances are so shallow that it would tire everyone. I find his direction problematic. He seems to be a great art director or special effect supervisor but not a good director. He can not get performances out of his actors above mediocrity. Lines exchanged without emotion it feels even the actors not buying the story. Hopefully with Nolan as producer man of steel will rise above Snyder direction.

  just plain awful

I was excited about watching this.........I shouldn't have been. Its one of the worst films i have ever seen. The script is terrible, the characters are pathetic, wafer thin fantasies. In the interests of fairness i will say that the action sequences are good but they belong in a different film. I would give it a miss.

  A hit, not a miss..

Once you accept this film is different from the typical Hollywood trash churned out week after week, and you are prepared to watch a more unique vision with an original script, you see that this film has an epic approach, both visually and as a listening experience. Dont believe the haters... Make up your own mind.

Really enjoyed the directors last 2 movies, 300 and Watchmen, especially Watchmen.
And that was the main reason to watch this movie, as was looking for something different with stunning imagination.
The movie delivers a Comic Book Style Fantasy World in spades. I personally loved it.
The story and the characters are engaging, the look is Spellbinding and the Action Sequences are very imaginative.
The movie has had pretty poor reviews in press, but I was glad to have the opportunity to watch something a little different.
