Gun-toting hotties combat assorted villains and their robot henchmen in this tawdry, repellent action fantasy.
June 29, 2011
Snyder likes to think that his Russian nesting doll of a concept is enough to excuse its hollow center.

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.
April 11, 2011
The movie spins out of control, until it collapses in a heap, senseless.
April 6, 2011
To the degree that Baby Doll and her pals are forced into becoming fetish objects, Sucker Punch contains its own critique -- though Joss Whedon's fascinating TV series Dollhouse explored similar themes with far more wit and skill.

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.
April 4, 2011
The baleful influence of David Lynch, kung-fu pictures and Shutter Island lie behind its rancid lucubrations.
April 1, 2011
This is a pretty awful botch-up, meaning far less than it seems to think.

Have we already found the worst film of the year?
March 30, 2011
Snyder pulverises our senses with derivative digital images and obvious musical choices. But his failure to delineate the levels of 'reality' is confusing and self-defeating.
March 27, 2011
This movie isn't bad in the way some incompetently made movies are bad; this is bad because there's much skill evident in a pointless endeavor.
March 25, 2011
A series of extravagant computer-generated adventure scenarios linked by grim mental hospital plot, Sucker Punch represents a particularly ambitious exercise in tedium.
March 25, 2011
Director Zack Snyder and his production crew clearly had great fun envisioning this swords-and-corsets fantasy. Few others are likely to approach their level of enjoyment.

The suckers here are the poor mugs who leave their dollars at the door. And for what? A seedy, desaturated, overstimulated simulation of a real movie. Schlock treatment for comatose gamers, and a bomb with a bright pink cherry on top.
March 25, 2011
The movie is like an arrested adolescent's Google search run amok.
March 25, 2011
Map! Fire! Knife! Key! (Well, eat drink man woman to you too, honey.)
March 25, 2011
If the goal was sensory overload and audience stupefaction, he has succeeded indeed. Snyder apparently is offering lobotomies to all. Step right up.
March 25, 2011
So thoroughly labored, and panders so relentlessly to adolescent attitudes and fantasies, and is so thoroughly and stridently humorless, that it kind of sucks out your soul while you're watching it.
March 25, 2011
For pure filmmaking - characters taking up half the foreground in close-up while events unfold behind them, action speeding up or stopping on command, a soundtrack of classic rock remixed or redone into droning trances - it's remarkable.
March 25, 2011
A surprisingly joyless mash-up of every bit of fanboy flotsam floating around in its maker's cranium.
