Ok so i saw a poster for this at Comic Con and decided to youtube it when i got back. So glad i did. SuckerPunch is now my new ‘psyched to a frenzy to see movie’. (or it will be when Scott Pilgrim is finally released here!!!!!)
I’m not going to even pretend i fully understand what the story is about, it just looks so damn COOL!! It’s by Zack Snyder, he was the director of The Watchmen and 300, and it’s his first completely original work. Basically it’s the guy who did 300, and we all know how cool 300 looked. No I’m not being a pervy girl, it’s not all hot bods, it’s got gorgeous fight scenes. So bloody. I loved it when the Spartans would ram the enemy to the ground in slow-mo, you could feel the impact of them hitting the ground.
Well SuckerPunch just looks ESPECIALLY AWESOME!!!!! I love watching girls kick the crap out of stuff, and the main character has pigtails and a samurai sword. A SAMURAI SWORD. Can you get any more awesome than that? Our main character is Baby Doll, played by Emily Browning (Violet in A Series of Unfotunate Events) and she and her four friends are trying to escape their horrible situation.
Ah, i found a plot summary:
“Set in the 1950s, “Punch” follows a girl who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and in that world, she begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man.”
(yes did you notice Vanessa Hudgens? I think she looks bad ass 🙂 )
