Blu-Ray Review: Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch Blu-ray Edition

After accidentally killing her younger sister, a young woman is sent to a mental institution. There, she forms a fantasy world within her imprisonment, using continuous stories within stories to “free” herself from her captivity.

While visually stunning, the story itself is choppy and hollow. In fact, for the first half hour of the the film, it felt more like I was watching music videos. The soundtrack is pretty great, but it overshadowed the sparse dialog. The characters themselves were fairly one-dimensional, save the evil villain.

There were two saving points for me: the music and the second fantasy world were Baby Doll originally plans her escape. Each time she goes into a trance-like state to escape her reality-like fantasy, Baby Doll is taken to a vastly different world. I wish the whole film took place here. From Germanic zombies with a steampunk feel to aliens with advanced technology, this alternate world was always fast-paced and action-packed. And there is no question the scenes were artfully rendered and stunning for the most part. But the overall lackluster story, flat characters, and confusing fantasy worlds-within-fantasies weren’t enough for me to say I enjoyed this one.

  1. I agree visually this film was fantastic and the score was fabulous! I have three passions in my life that I take very seriously, one is film, writing, and the one I was born with which is music. So when you get a film that tempts the eyes and the ears I’m in heaven. A friend I work with at Dish Network reminded me that we are running a special for the 4th of July. It runs from Dish Cinema and there are five new releases for 99 cents, a customer only needs to call in and order and they can order all five if they wish. I’ll be one of those who will. It runs till the 7th. Honestly I think that any company that isn’t doing something for this special day that recognizes our independence is missing something. But that’s just me, I’m a patriot as I hope anyone living here would be.
