Sucker Punch

There’s a movie coming out in March 2011 called ‘Sucker Punch’ about a girl who gets sent to a mental institute by her cruel step-father and plans to escape but the lines between reality and make-belief gets blurred.

I was interested because its being directed by Zack Snyder, the guy who directed Owls of Ga’Hoole, a movie which absolutely blew me away (more on that later). He also got the same animation studio to work on it so I was expecting some really good graphics.

Upon watching the trailer however, I was less than impressed. It’s very anime with blond girls in short skirts and midriffs making sailormoon moves which might be a hit with alot of con people out there, but it’s definitely not something I would pay to watch especially since the graphics did look nice but not exceptional – typical action movie kinda stuff with no real indication of where graphics could be heading to.

End line is I don’t think I’ll be watching it unless someone lends it to me and even then I might struggle to getting around to it :p It might be pleasant enough to watch but theres something about the way the girls were portrayed that kinda creeped me out. So strange. It’s apparently the first movie Snyder has made which isn’t based on someone else’s work (e.g. book) but I hear it’s rather Alice in Wonderland; which might explain the young girls. Not sure how it will do in the movies since there are alot of con people to boost it.

Anyways, here’s the trailer.
