    I went and saw it last night.

    I thought it was very entertaining and very disturbing.

    Sucker Punch (2011) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central

    Sucker Punch is a video game. Granted, itís the most awesome video game Iíve ever seen, only lacking in Vatican gorilla soldiers, skeletal cowboys and a 200-foot incarnation of Satan himself. If you are content to watch the cinematic scenes of your favorite video game strung together by the thinnest of threads, then Sucker Punch may be for you. Surely those attending who just come for the big boom will get their fill with the bonus of hot women in peril. Those looking for an epic will be left wanting. At best, Sucker Punch is the sexiest, most talented, dumbest stripper youíll ever meet.

    Just took my wife to go see it and we ended up loving it. My wife brought up that this was the old Schwarzenegger/Stallone type movies except take out the shirtless men and add the sexy girls.

    Saw it last night.

    If they would have just made it a movie about these chicks fighting zombie Nazis and samurai robots, it would have been perfect. Those parts of the movie were insane and amazing. Visually impressive and a LOT of fun.

    The rest of the movie? Not so much.

    They really should have abandoned all attempts at seriousness and drama.

    In Defense of ‘Sucker Punch’ – Uncovering the Method Behind Zack Snyder’s Madness

    PART II: FEMINISM FOR DUDES

    Sucker Punch is unquestionably a film intended for men. If it seems like the picture’s depiction of empowered females is too heavily skewed by a male gaze, it is. That’s the point. The film is very much about the male gaze, because that’s the lens through which females have been depicted in pop culture. Just as the men in the film are entranced by Baby Doll’s provocative dancing, so too are males in the audience meant to be entranced by these girls’ familiarly arousing attire and sexually suggestive posturing.

    Sweet Pea dismisses Baby Doll’s dancing as nothing but overtly sexual thrusting and gyrating. It’s not female empowerment; the only purpose the sexuality serves is to turn guys on, and that still leaves them in a place of being held under the sway of what guys want from them instead of what they want from themselves. So they devise a plan to gain freedom, this time using the power of their sexuality to hypnotize the men and hold them under their sway instead. It’s at this point that the film thrusts us into its several fanciful scenarios, each of which hopes to have exactly the same effect on any young men in the audience.

    These action vignettes very deliberately pander to adolescent fantasy, dressing up the girls in fetishistic garb that highlights their thighs, midriffs and frequent upskirts. But just as the girls continue to take back control from the men in the real world, their physical appearance in the action fantasy worlds gradually takes a backseat to their ability to simply kick a ludicrous amount of ass, in very much the same way any male action star might. More importantly, by unifying and fighting together — in both worlds — the girls are able to put forth the effort needed to defy the physically imposing monsters who aim to keep them in their place. They’re fighting to take back the control that’s been taken from them.

    While it may be the girls’ sexuality that allows them to manipulate their leering oppressers, they find their true strength elsewhere: In each other.

    That’s right. Sucker Punch is The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. But with dragons, robots and Nazi zombies.
    A good article that makes a good case for the film.

    Doesn't change what I thought of it, though.

    As a whole, I think Sucker Punch is a seriously flawed effort. But it’s not fair to write the film off as being a completely mindless one. In an age of derivative **** like Battle: Los Angeles, an amibitious failure like Sucker Punch is something to be supported and admired, not violently derided and shunned. Many may deem it a disaster with a deeply confused sense of morality, but surely there’s something to be said for trying something new. Isn’t that, above all else, what Hollywood is in need of right now?

    I’m not arguing that you shouldn’t hate Sucker Punch.

    All I hope is that you’re hating it for the right reasons.
    I do agree with this.

    Annnnnd the other side of it:

    On Zack Snyder’s ‘Sucker Punch’: Why Ass-Kicking and Empowering Aren’t Always the Same Thing

    So, what’s the difference between a badass female character and a lazy stereotype of a badass female character? The answer is simple, though you wouldn’t know it from the number of two-dimensional ladies Hollywood churns out every year: You give her an inner life, and you prioritize that inner life over her outer appearance. Your powerful female character doesn’t have to be ugly or dressed in frumpy clothes – go ahead, put her in stilettos and a push-up bra – but if her attractiveness to men is all there is to the character, she’s nothing more than an object.
    It might be fair to say that this person "missed the point" that the reviewer in the previous link posted made, but... that fault belongs to Snyder, I think, for not making it a little more clear.
