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.

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.
