Movie Review: Sucker Punch (2011)
By Kevin Walton

On the 29th of July 2010 I posted a preview of the movie “Sucker Punch” because I’d seen the preview on YouTube and thought it looked like the most awesome special effects movie ever. I finally got to see the movie on the big screen a few days ago and I am very pleased to say that it did not disappoint.

Everything I predicted about the movie, it’s storyline and the interweaving between reality and Baby Doll’s fantasy world all proved to be spot on, although, without giving too much away for those of you who haven’t seen it yet, the ending didn’t quite pan out as one might expect; however, that too, I guess, is part of the charm of this movie.

From start to finish, the artistry of this movie is fantastic. Major kudos to Larry Fong for his amazing cinematography, to Michael Wilkinson for his absolutely beautiful costume design and to the entire art department directed by Patrick Banister, Todd Cherniawsky, Stefen Dechant and Grant Van Der Slagt. My only regret is that they didn’t shoot it in digital 3D as that would have been absolutely incredible to see.

This movie is, by far, one of the best I have seen in a long time and has placed itself very high on my list of favourite movies of all time. I will definitely be adding it to my Blu-Ray collection as soon as it’s released.
