That is what I felt at the end of the movie. I got sucker punched by Sucker Punch~!
I guess this movie has its own meaning as the storyline kinda lost everyone towards the end of the movie. But I think I could understand from whose viewpoint the movie was being told from.
So I got a chance to watch this movie thanks to Nuffnang as they were offering tickets to watch it. Of course I thought that I would not be that lucky to get the tickets as I had gotten tickets to the past few screenings but I was wrong. I got the tickets from Nuffnang to watch this movie~! Fortunately this time around there was no unwanted incidents that scared the living shit out of me during this screening (this story will be told later on, and actually it has been nicely told by Carmen).
Well, this movie was certainly loud. Louder than usual. Its more of a movie with beautiful graphics, sexy ladies, and super loud music and sound effects. Not forgetting the super cool slow motion sucker punches throughout the movie.
The battle scenes were simply beautiful. I wonder if it would look good on 3D. Something my dear colleague has raised. He had high hopes for this movie, but was a little disappointed.
Can’t deny, I would definitely watch this movie for the sexy ladies.
And to note, that this movie actually was told from one person’s point before it was transfered to another person and from there, that is when the fantasy truly began.
After thinking through a few times, I think I understand why the movie was told as it was told. Story wise, people won’t really see the value in it. But the graphics and the fighting scenes would make up for it.
Overall, I would say, give this movie a go if you are interested in sexy ladies, carrying guns shooting at nasty looking enemies, but if you are looking for a story, then please do not go.
Enjoy being sucker punched~!
