SUCKER PUNCH (angel wars) (2011 U.S. CANADA) D/W/P: ZACK SNYDER W: STEVE SHIBUYA P: DEBORAH SNYDER
Emily Browning is Babydoll, a vulnerable blonde lolita-fetishist`s wet dream, who ends up abused in a nightmarish mental asylum after she`s framed (by her horrible stepfather) for the murder of her younger sister. Threatened with a lobotomy, she seems to escape into an alternate reality cabaret/brothel run by gangsters where she`s forced to dance for clients along with other girls. Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung are other dancers who decide to escape with her. When Babydoll dances (which we never see), she enters another reality (a series of videogame/RPG-like action-adventure missions, all featuring Scott Glen) which represent their struggle (or something). CGI-heavy music video nerd fetish fantasy excuse for a movie (and waste of tremendous VFX) is one of the worst major releases in recent memory, and above all BORING AS FUCK!! With Carla Gugino, Oscar Isaac, Jon Hamm, countless visual references to better, more substantial movies and a soundtrack full of terrible remixes and covers. Get the Blu-Ray disc and increase the torture with an Extended Cut (extra 17 horrible mins!). I`d still fuck Babydoll though (and couldn`t they have had at least one scene of her sucking on a lollipop)!
