    Honest, I'm having a tough time seeing what he found so wrong with it. . .
    +1. The only question is: IMAX or newly opened DBox theatre screening tomorrow!

    Look. Ignore the reviews. They are all going to blast this for being what it is. A giant ball of visual amazement with just enough story to classify it as a movie. Which pretty much sums up almost every summertime popcorn flick. Critics are salivating over how they can crucify this movie and how they can write 'clever' things. Ok, it's not BIUTIFUL...but you know this going in. If Transformers/GI Joe/etc can make gazillions at the box office why not SuckerPunch? At least it's not based on a toy.

    I could swear you said some mean things about TRON because it was only that.

    I did. But that was different. My points about Tron were basically nothing I saw/heard made me want to see it(even the positive word of mouth). I don't think I critiqued the movie beyond that because I never saw it. And if SuckerPunch doesn't float your boat as far as what you have seen so far, then don't go see it. It's that simple. Movies like this cannot be judged by critics. You watch the trailers and if the 'highly stylized' look does not catch your eye, you probably aren't going to like it. Tron left me cold based on what I saw, and the word of mouth(ESPECIALLY the positive) convinced me that it was not for me.

    CHUD.com — Review: SUCKER PUNCH

    The sum of those flaws is a messiness that prevents the film from being a wholly satisfactory narrative experience, but it doesnít preclude it from being beautiful, fun, and worthwhile. Hereís the thing- the idea that you need a strong connection to the characters in order to enjoy action scenes on a visceral, adrenaline level is utter horse****. The constant fetishizing of B-action and exploitation films that pay no attention to character make it clear that one can enjoy spectacle regardless. Obviously action is improved with character investment, but weak characterization and dialogue are flaws that can exist without sinking a film if the overall themes are consistently integrated and culminate in a satisfying manner. Sucker Punch simply does not manage that. So yes, while it sits on the razorís edge of being a good movie, itís ultimately not going to fall on the memorable side. The idea that it is inherently disengaging or even boring is ludicrous though. Your personal mileage may vary, but thereís nothing that objectively prevents the film from being a roaring action experience for those willing to roll with it.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm planning on seeing this. Been excited for some time and I tend to not care about the critics.

    Just picking on you for having a less than enthusiastic interest in TRON because all you heard us fans saying was that it was really fun visually and the music was great. I bet if Zach Snyder made it you'd have seen it. :P
