Sucker Punch (2011)



Critic Consensus: It's technically impressive and loaded with eye-catching images, but without characters or a plot to support them, all of Sucker Punch's visual thrills are for naught.

Movie Info

"Sucker Punch" is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what's real and what is imaginary. She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls-the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens) and the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung)-to band together and try to escape a terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac) and Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino), before the mysterious High Roller (Jon Hamm) comes for Babydoll. Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey-if they succeed-will set them free.. -- (C) Warner Bros

Critic Reviews for Sucker Punch

All Critics (220) | Top Critics (56)

Sucker Punch packs a pretty strong wallop. I enjoyed a lot of it, but I wish someone had warned me that a lobotomy was going to be a major plot point.

January 8, 2021 | Full Review…

Gun-toting hotties combat assorted villains and their robot henchmen in this tawdry, repellent action fantasy.

December 6, 2011 | Full Review…

Snyder likes to think that his Russian nesting doll of a concept is enough to excuse its hollow center.

June 29, 2011 | Full Review…

It's close to what Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez were after with their Grind House double-header, but shot through with Snyder's own psychotropic brio (which is something like the unholy union of David Lynch, Brian De Palma, and Ken Russell).

May 11, 2011 | Full Review…

Heaven help us if we're ever supposed to feel guilty about watching hot chicks kick ass with guns ablazin', especially if the spectacle involves fire-breathing dragons.

April 13, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The movie spins out of control, until it collapses in a heap, senseless.

The hyperstylized visuals are spectacular and a total delight, but they are not enough to make up for an empty plot that is almost unengaging, and the idea of mixing wuxia, war movies, Nazi zombies and robots is indeed curious but not sufficient to be worth our attention.
