"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."

Critics:

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

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

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)

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

So I'll give you the story.

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.

I don't really believe that it goes deeper than a "Boy's fucking fantasy". I think the movie was more about friendship and being your own hero(I know that sounds really cheesy) The quotes in it where pretty inspirational. Plus this movie had a 5 female HEROS. Which in a world like today doesn't hurt to have. It was prob my fav thing about this movie(Next to Babydoll) instead of have the original "We need help! Help us!" and a guy comes and saves them. They try and save themselves.

I'd advise reading link first...

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 Rocket says that once she died, he told her that all along only one could earn "the kind of freedom they want". Baby Doll says goodbye.
Blue is getting closer to Sweet Pea and asks her to obey him, one last time. She hesitates, and Baby Doll arrives, telling Blue to leave Sweet Pea alone. Blue says, "Oh, look, your little blonde saviour!" He confronts Baby Doll, who signals for Sweet Pea to run, and she does. Blue orders men to go after her, and compliments Baby Doll on all she's done for him, but its time she let go of herself. She reminds him he tried that once, but he raises a...

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.
As Baby Doll wakes up, Blue tries to seduce her, telling her she wants it, but she refuses, punches him, and tells him that she remembers everything before leaving. Blue confronts the guy who did the lobotomy, and he confirms that he did complete it. Blue, angered, sends men out to look for Baby Doll who has managed to slip out of the centre as, technically, she no longer exists.
After a while, Baby Doll his her head and whilst unconscious, is able to contact Sweet Pea. She tells her that Rocket is looking for her and she needs to be prepared.

SPOILERS AHEAD.

When the cook attacks Sweet Pea, Rocket, beloved sister, is bold enough to take the knife instead, sacrificing herself for Sweet. How sweet.

Following Blondie telling Blue of all of their antics, Blue pulls out a gun during his confrontation with the girls and shoots Amber, right there, knowing of her involvement.

Despite her snitching, Blondie's end soon follows Amber as Blue shoots her, too -- after all, she didn't tell him immediately, so that's done wrong in his book...

Only one can escape. Seeing her chance, Baby Doll sends Sweet Pea away and waits to be collected. A lobotomy is waiting for her, but it's okay. It's like she wants him to do it.

As Sweet Pea boards the bus that will take her away, is she really safe? Is Paradise Diner safe for her? Baby Doll was promised paradise, after all. By the very man driving Sweet's bus. And one of her fellow passengers was in one of the fantasies, so... is this just a fantasy, too?

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. "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 defend? Who chains us? And who holds the key that can set us free?" Self-determination or a description of the handler's control of the slave's psyche?
"It's you. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight." Recall of what Baby Doll said previously.

Techniques: Illusion. Deceit. Double-speech.

Action scenes: In Baby Doll's head, when she's asked to perform an "alluring" dance, in a way to escape reality.

Dance: "Let everything go." = dissociate. Action scene vaguely reflects reality.

Baby Doll's body: What she wears during her fantasy sequences reminds everyone how she is being used for her body.

Wise Man: He will lead her to her "freedom." He knows the through that whilst she fights for liberty, he is leading her towards a labotomy.

Action scene #1: Japan.

Action scene #2: Germany.

White Rabbit song: Mind control context... [i]"One pill makes you larger / And one pill makes you small / And the ones that mother gives you / Don't do anything at all / Go ask Alice / When she's ten feet tall / And if you go chasing rabbits / And you know you're going to fall / Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar / Has given you the call / Call Alice / When she was just small / When men on the chessboard / Get up and tell you where to go / And you've just had some kind of mushroom / And your mind is moving slow / Go ask Alice / I think she'll...

Producer: Zack Snyder

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; "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 battles… but to whisper from our heart… reminding that it's us. It's everyone of us who holds the power over the worlds we create." --> A possible double meaning of the theme of mind control (guardian angels' control) that is displayed throughout).

Time period: 1950-60s.

Baby Doll's name: Double meaning --> small but controllable, mind control as baby dolls do not control their movements.

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).
When we first see Sweetpea, she is by herself on stage, and Rocket, Blondie, and Amber are all sitting at a table away form the stage. We then get closeups of Sweetpea and Babydoll looking at eachother as Blue is talking. Then, when Sweetpea and Babbydoll are introduced to eachother, Blue has suddenly grown a mustache, despite the fact that the stepfather is still there, so it is clearly still the same day.
All of this leads me to believe that the brothel is in Babydolls head, and the warzone is a fantasy within that fantasy. I believe that Sweetpea getting out in the end is Babydolls way of imagining herself being free. After all,I don't think that the scene...

I loved this movie, but part of it really confused me. So in the movie it shows that it is a mental home. Then it shows the girls in the uniforms attacking each other. Then it shows BabyDoll about to be labotimized. Then all of a sudden its sweet pea in the chair? And all of a sudden the girls are Hookers and Showgirls? Wtf! Did BabyDoll imagine the whole thing? Or did it really happen? And if it did really happen then why did it show her about to be labotimized? Is she imagining it happening to her?
This part really confuses me. If you understand it please help me out and post a comment! I would really appritiate it! Thanks

After the death of their Mother, their Stepfather discovers from the mother's will that she left everything to her two daughters. Enraged that he worked so hard to swoon the mother over and then married her only to be left nothing, he gets a bottle of unidentified alcohol and drinks. He gets so drunk that he heads for the girls' rooms and just as Babydoll is leaving out of her sister's room, he decides to attack Babydoll and possibly try to rape her. He doesn't succeed and then turns his sights on Babydoll's sister, so he locks Babydoll in her room and then proceeds to carry out his diabolical scheme.

Babydoll, in a panic-stricken state, escapes her temporary holding cell and goes to the same room where the Stepfather was and finds his .45 caliber pistol. Caught trying to break into the little sister's closet, where the little sister locked herself in so she wouldn't be injured or worse, the Stepfather turns and then seeing Babydoll with a gun he tries to reason with her. She takes aim and fires one round and clips him, but unfortunately the bullet ricochets off of a pipe and the bullet strikes the little sister.

But don't let appearances full you, They could be as fierce as any dragon.. But they arnt here to fight our battles, But to whisper from our hearts.. Reminding thats its us.. That is everyone one of us, That holds the power of the worlds we create.

"We can deny our angels exist... Convince ourselves they couldnt be real.. But they show up anyway.. At strange places and at strange times..They can speak through any character we can imagen.. Daring us.. Challenging us to fight."



“And finally, this question: The mystery of whose story it will be, of who draws the curtain, of who sets the stage. Who is it that chooses our steps in the dance, who drives us mad, lashes us with whips and crowns us with victory when we survive the impossible? Who is it that does that does all these things?Who honors those we love for the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us but at the same time sings we'll never die? Who teaches us whats real? How to laugh at lies. Who decides what we'll die to defend? Who...
