Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch is an epic action-fantasy directed by Zack Snyder, who directed Watchmen and 300. This explains the slow motion style that made it Snyder's poetic trademark. This is also something anime fans would like. The action scenes looks like it was drawn out from the anime. Not to mention that each scene can be used as a poster or a desktop wallpaper since it was also artistic looking. 

The story starts with young girl, only identified as Baby Doll, who has dream world that parallels her reality. The aspect of this dream can be true to most. Baby Doll's dream is her only way to believe that she will escape the harsh reality she faces in her life. You may think it's denial but that is that she only have that's precious to her.

About the cast, Baby Doll was played by Emily Browning. I didn't recognize her at first, because she changed how she look for the movie and she was a brunette  and a child when I saw her last on "Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events". What puzzles me is that Blondie, played by Vanessa Hudgens. Vanessa is not even blond in the movie. Carla Gugino again was cast for the third time by Snyder's slow-motion trademark because she was at Sin City and Watchmen. Scott Glenn as the Wiseman provided that tough image but very gentle as he provides wisdom and morale to the Sucker Punch girls. 

I watched it twice at SM Cinemas. First, it was on a regular cinema. The second was on IMAX. I can safely say that it is better to watch it in IMAX because it won't do it justice when you watch it on regular cinema. The movie was rated PG-13 and opens in cinemas on March 25. Sucker Punch is distributed by Warner Bros. Philippines.
