Sucker Punch – A Movie Review
Last night the boy and I rented Sucker Punch from Redbox. I’m ending my dvd subscription to Netflix and switching over to streaming only at the beginning of August to avoid the $6 increase, and they put this dvd on a long wait, so Redbox came to my rescue. (Really digging Redbox, plus they are sending out a coupon code for a free dvd August 1st if you rent two movies at the same time this month. I got True Grit for the boy and dad as my second movie.) Anyway, I thought the movie was amazing. While it’s certainly not for everyone, if you’re keen on social references and have an appreciation for visual arts this is one movie you should definitely see. Sucker Punch reminded me of a Sailor Moon hero who fights her way to freedom with a burlesque entourage kicking steampunk Nazi soldier butt. I found it visually stunning and interesting to watch, although the ending made me sad. It’s one for the home dvd collection for sure. Has anyone else seen this movie yet? If so, what was your take?
