Sucker Punch(2011)

I should have known this wouldn't have been a great movie, not only because of my friends saying it was stupid, but also because of the crappy preview they showed on Conan. It was that stupid scene where they fight a dragon with a chopper gunner.

Well, aside from that, the movie sets up what seems to be a deep and interesting plot, but at around maybe the ten minute mark the movie loses all of that, and any sort of thing which could have made it any bit interesting, and the rest is desperate as they pull off every cliche action fight in the book, and do it wrong. A lot of the actual plot scenes are downright boring. It's like a guy movie and a chick-flick mashed into one. It just doesn't work well.

Anyways, the protagonist's alcoholic father presumably murders her mother and gets custody of her children; her and her little sister. He sexually assaults the protagonist, and proceeds to go abuse her little sister, but she comes back with a gun, but misses and shoots her sister, killing her. She doesn't have the heart to actually shoot him, however. He frames her for murdering her sister, and she is sent to a mental institute where she gets a lobotomy, so she can't report him.

SPOILER ALERT: The rest of the movie is crap. You could probably make up a much more satisfying plot in your head.

She does bad ass stuff in a dream. Her dream is shattered. She is lobotomized. That's the sucker punch. The end.
