I have nothing against fun, junk cinema. But, come on. This movie was just so hollow. No real characters, peril or violence with a pulse. I loved Dawn of the Dead and Watchmen. So far, Snyder is hit-and-miss with me. I really wanted to like this one because it looked fun and fun to look at. Negative. The visual flare wears out its welcome very quickly, and all you're left with is story, which is preposterous and unfulfilling. It's just empty trash. skip it
Suckerpunch is a solid film though it surely won't be for everyone. The story tries to be too clever for its own good at times, and the acting is average. But as a package it presents a decent film but not too terribly compelling.
First and most obviously, "Sucker Punch" is on one level exactly what it looks like: an unzipped geek-boy fantasy about a posse of scantily clad hookers engaged in video-game style throwdowns with a villainous array of robots, monsters and dragons. You could say that Snyder tries to walk a fine line between softcore exploitation and girl-power feminism, but it's more like he takes a big fat grade-school eraser and smudges that line into meaninglessness. Anyway, there can be no doubt that he really, really digs directing fight sequences, and as in "Watchmen" and "300," he commands a team that delivers the best effects in the business.
