Me and one of my friends where talking about wanting to see this movie at lunch last year.(This was a before I saw the movie)
And my other friend (Who was talking to someone esle) comes out on no where saying:
"You guys wanna go see Suckerpunch. Why? It's just girls in skimpy outfits fighting shit! It's just a guys fucking fantasy. Like come on. It's just fucking sick."
I just moved on with out saying any thing to her. Now that I have seen the movie this comment makes me kind of mad.
Rocket finds Baby Doll and tells her to stay where she is. She says goodbye and thanks her for helping her sister escape when no one else did, not even her. Rocket says that soon, she will fade like Amber, but assures Baby Doll she will still always be watching, even if she can't be seen. Baby Doll accepts this, and asks about Sweet Pea. Rocket says that Blue's with her, but she'll be okay. Baby Doll asks if Rocket knew the Wise Man's plan all along, and...
ok, so what if there was a sucker punch 2? well, this is what i'd do with it...
Following her lobotomy, Baby Doll keeps having strange action-sequence dreams. After a while, she reaches the Wise Man who tells her that in the afterlife, Blondie has been condemned to 5 years of being a prisoner for betraying the others, Amber faded quietly into oblivion, never to be heard from or seen again, and Rocket is trying to find a way to communicate with Sweet Pea. Baby Doll is shocked to realise she knows who they all are and what he's talking about.
First Impressions: Empowerment. Women fighting back. Double speak = mind control. Fight for freedom. Rebellion and freedom. "Guide" = "Agent of liberation."
Look Again: Escape and dissociation. "Guide" = "A handler who owned the keys to her psyche, guiding her into the fracturing of her personality."
Final Words: Narrator. [i]"Who honors those we love with the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us and at the same time sings that we'll never die? Who teaches us what's real and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live and what we'll die to...
What its about: A girl, Baby Doll, along with her friends, must find 5 items to escape their mental institution.
Critics' thoughts: They don't like the video game-like plot and its too confusing with so many alternate realities.
Beginning: A narrator says; [i]"Everyone has an angel. A guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don't let appearances fool you. They can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our...
Sucker Punch has been playing on cable lately, so I have been watching it again. The first time that I rewatched it I wasn't sure what was "real" and what wasn't (well, I knew the war zone scenes were in Babydolls head). Then I saw that someone on IMDB posted the theory that Babydoll and Sweetpea are the same person. At first I took them as being metaphorical, but I am watching the movie now, and that theory actually connected alot of dots for me (especially why Sweetpea was wearing a Babydoll wig in her skit).
Okay, so months ago I wrote an article describing my interpretation of this movie. A major part of it had to do with Sweet Pea being another version of Baby Doll. I am now even more convinced of that because I noticed a quote that Sweet Pea says. She says that her dance is personal and says who she is. Well, in her dance, she is Baby Doll! Normally I wouldnt take a quote like that literally, but given the other evidence, which I described in my article, I dont think its a coincidence she said it
