Sucker Punch(2011)

I couldn't possibly give this a proper review other than repeat the synopsis from Warner Brothers and add that it is not named Sucker Punch without good reason. TBH after reading some of the comments about this film before watching it I was worried I was going to be watching some deep action thriller without the action or thrills or a Mystery & Suspense with only the mystery. People were clearly not getting it. But without chucking in a spoiler, all is explained at the end and if you don't get it then... Well there's little hope for you.
I thought it was brilliantly played out with the idea that in your own mind and your own imagination, everything is possible and in fact reality itself is sometimes given too much respect for our own good.
I can see why some folk wouldn't like it but I thought that it played out the potentially difficult parts just right and left us with a good moral to the story. I'll let you work out what that was for yourself because like most good stories, it will be different for some people than my experience.
