Movie Preview: Sucker Punch (2011)
By Kevin Walton

From the director of “Watchmen” and “300” comes one of the most highly anticipated special effects extravaganza movies of 2011, “Sucker Punch”.

Written by Steve Shibuya and Zack Snyder, and directed by Snyder, “Sucker Punch”, set in the 1950’s, is about a young girl, “Baby Doll” (played by Emily Browning), who has been committed to the Lennox House mental institution where she is to be labotomised as the result of pain caused to her by her evil stepfather.
While there, she creates a whole new alternative reality inside her own mind from which she must escape before she is caught by the story’s villain (played by Jon Hamm). But in order to do that, she must first, with the help of her fellow female inmates (played by Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone and Abbie Cornish), steal five objects.

From watching the trailer and reading the online synopsis’ at, it’s already pretty clear to see the predictability of this movie’s storyline and how it will inevitably draw parallels between Baby Doll’s imaginary alternative reality and the real world of the mental institution where she is being kept. However, that being said, I still think that this is a very interesting premise on which to base a movie, and it looks to be an absolutely incredible special effects, creature creation, action packed extravaganza!
And let’s face it, a bunch of the hottest women that Hollywood has to offer running around in skimpy outfits, kicking butt and cracking skull with an extensive arsenal of weapons and martial arts... it just doesn’t get better than that!

Due for release 25th March 2011, I am really looking forward to seeing this one!
