Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch ★★★½


Female empowerment as a fantastical glimmer of sci-fi trash and neopunk junk food. Its opening sequence is a little masterpiece in and of itself, using lightning as footnotes and shattering bulbs as a physical act of attempted liberation. It's too bad that the rest of this strange creation isn't as visionary as it wants to be, but I continue to get lost in every CGI-addled frame; a cheap and unwavering movie making power that Snyder utilizes to fulfill his dreams and expanses. Zombie soldiers, techno robots, and a big-ass dragon are only toppings in this overly massive action sundae. Pass the syrup.
