This is unfiltered Snyder and either you love him or you hate him. This film doesn't allow half meassures. [Full review in Spanish]

If it wasn't executed with such panache it would probably qualify as one of the dumbest movies of 2011.

An ambitious yet flawed effort, but one executed with undoubted style and verve.

It's ridiculous and often incoherent, but also oddly fun in the sheer overkill of pulp and fantasy imagery.

It's close to what Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez were after with their Grind House double-header, but shot through with Snyder's own psychotropic brio (which is something like the unholy union of David Lynch, Brian De Palma, and Ken Russell).

Its multiple reality constructions are far more tingling than Inception's wannabe mind****.

The story's true "sucker punch" is the way it lures its audience in with the promise of simple eye candy but then hits you in the guts with something deeper and more complex.

Heaven help us if we're ever supposed to feel guilty about watching hot chicks kick ass with guns ablazin', especially if the spectacle involves fire-breathing dragons.

A typically overblown Zack Snyder effort...

(Snyder's) heroines declare, 'Dress us to satisfy your fetishistic whims - baby doll, sailor, geisha, stripper - but in doing so you free our fantasy world, too, in all its potency.'

It will be played as a double feature with Richard Kelly's Southland Tales for years to come, with audience members chirpily reciting the campy, cheesy, oddball lines of dialogue, and whooping in glee at its reckless abandon.

A visually arresting, occasionally funny ride.

There is so much front to this that traditional depths of character development and motivation are sidelined, but this is intentional, allowing the audience to immerse in the layers of dreams and later piece together what actually happened.

We get the feeling that Snyder has made all the music videos he has ever wanted to and edited them end to end to put them into this film

Unnerving dark themes meshed with kick-ass fantasy are couched in stunning visuals and a hell-on-wheels music soundtrack in this thrilling no holds barred action mash-up from director Zach Snyder

Adrenalin-rush junkies should love this movie. As a stylized lobotomy, the mind-bending Sucker Punch packs a wallop.

Sucker Punch is superficial and erotic visual stimulation, much like the kind of experience some might have when they immerse themselves in a video game to do battle with the enemy.

Snyder's film is a warped mash-up of different genres - Gothic nightmare, psycho horror, steam-punk, Japanese manga, video game. File, though, under Guilty Pleasure.
