Kill Bill it's not

If you don't know the difference between female agency and a sadomasochistic fantasy, and you don't care to know, or if you think Justine is a feminist tract, you will love this movie. The story follows the adventures of Babydoll (no other name; perfect makeup, no matter what), who tries to kill her evil stepfather and accidentally kills her sister. He gets her thrown into an asylum, somehow, and -- holy ticking clock! -- she will be lobotomized with an ice pick by Dr. Jon Hamm in five days. What can she do? Dick-matizing sexy dancing and Inception levels of fantasy, that's what! Zach Snyder wrote Sucker Punch with male fans of Frank Miller and video games in mind (see: the top Imdb comment), with the thinnest possible veneer of interest for females, whom he must think are either stupid, or moved and deeply grateful at his depiction of rape and abuse. The only thing I'm grateful for is Oscar Isaac, who sings, dances, and chews all the non-CGI scenery. The podcast How Did This Made asked its listeners to complete this statement: "Sucker Punch is to female empowerment as...." There were a lot good responses, including " Michael Bay is to subtlety" and " the Holocaust is to German pride." Mine is " Mandingo is to Civil Rights."

A concoction of genres held by CGI and a weird little girl fetish

Similar to the film "Life of Pi" expropriated with characters that act as avatars for the real world, and "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest" for the finale. Sucker Punch is filled in-between with a CGI wonderland. Although seemingly anti abuse (male onto female), the context remains one of pleasuring the male ego. Disturbing because of the hopelessness and destitution of the female characters, held together by male infantile and juvenile save-the-world arcade game sequences. All the men gain their pleasures despite their eventual negative outcomes. La petite mort become la grand mort but still a climax for the men. Disturbing on many levels.

Snyders unsung masterpiece

This is probably the most underrated movie of all time. If there ever was such a thing as critic-collectivism wherein everyone just follows everyone else, then this movie is evidence of that. Most reviews I've read I just shake my head at wondering if they even saw the movie.

I even saw a few self-proclaimed "feminists" complaining that this film is very shallow, violent, and degrading towards women, those folk definitely did not see this movie. If you watch this movie and think such things, and I am sorry if this sound pretentious, but if so you really need to start using your brain.

This is a brilliant, very intellectual movie that deals with escapism, dream scenarios and it speaks a lot in metaphor. To me very similar to Donnie Darko, another movie I love.

People watching and loving things like Transformers and Justice League might not enjoy this movie. I also understand that the tone of this movie within a deep metaphoric world will not appeal to all, but hot darn this is definitely for those of you loving psychology, deep thoughts, intelligent stories and escapism. Before Snyder ruined BvS, which is one of the worst movies ever made, and before he helped mess up Justice League, he did make the really good Watchmen and this unsung masterpiece.

This is a movie that definitely belongs on a top 20 movies of all time list. A 9/10, and highly recommended.
