    This is a fantastic movie! Everytime it comes on both my husband and I watch it. I like John Cusack and he likes Kate Beckinsale. But both actor & actress in this movie work great together. It funny, romatic clean and fun. I would recommend this to anyone to watch over and over again…

    In my opinion John Cusak’s best movie.
    He & Kate Beckinsale are magic together.
    The storyline is fantastic, the music
    alluring, and the acting first class.
    I have watched it at least 20 times.

    The critics were wrong yet again, March 26, 2011
    By 
    Renfield “Up the Irons” (Edmonton, Canada) –

    This review is from: Sucker Punch (Two-Disc Extended Edition) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)

    I’m starting to wonder if we’re seeing the same movies as the critics nowadays. Or at least, if we’re getting different cuts of movies. Because I’ve often found myself walking out going “Did I see a different movie than the critics?”

    Of course, Snyder is no stranger to critical disdain. He may be the most misunderstood director out there. True his films aren’t for
    everyone, but if you look close enough you may just find something there. And Sucker Punch is the biggest example of how big a visionary he is- Here he manages to bring to the table a satisfying and exciting new vision.

    I was in right from the opening scene. A cover of Sweet Dreams set to a fantastic and tone setting scene depicting her abuse from her wicked stepfather. WHAT an opening scene.

    We are then transported to Mount Pleasant Insane Asylum, once a performing arts venue. Baby Doll is just a drop in the ocean of how
    many beautiful girls who can dance. Baby Doll doesn’t know this until she saves Rocket, another one of the girls. There she meets the rest of the gang, and the sexy Goski, a doctor who has a form of therapy- dance. When Baby Doll dances, she can slay dragons, fight robots, wield swords, etc. The girls love her- but as it stands, she’s dancing… to escape from the asylum with the girls.

    The concept may not sound dazzling- but wait till you see it. Sucker Punch is what its title states- a conceptual sucker punch. Nothing can prepare you for what you will experience. You are in the world with Baby Doll- you feel as if you are experiencing Baby Doll’s therapy with her. Snyder totally does a great job with this aspect, and as a theatre nerd and dance lover, arts as therapy really hit home because it’s very true, and I’ve experienced that euphoria from being a performer.

    The acting is fantastic, and Emily Browning is great as both an action chick and a confused, disturbed girl. Cugino is sexy and adds her usual charm to her role. Hamm as Blue is easily the best, as his villain is certainly convincing.

    Add to that, one of the best soundtracks ever put to film. Working with Tyler Bates, Browning covers a few songs, and quite a few others contribute too. And Bjork’s “Army of Me” has never sounded cooler.

    I was skeptical- Snyder has struck gold with 300, Watchmen and Guardians, but could he manage to make one of his original ideas spark?
    As a result he can- and he did. Do NOT be a puppet of the critics- experience Sucker Punch with an open mind. Touche, Zack Snyder…
    Touche.

    Blu-Ray Review (Updated: July 6th), March 26, 2011
    By 
    Private Quentin Tarantino Fan “Formally Known… (nowhere) –

    This review is from: Sucker Punch (DVD)

    Note: I wrote an original review for the film only way back when I saw it, which was actually on opening day. Now that I have acquired the Blu-Ray version of Sucker Punch, I will write a review. My consensus though is to purchase the Blu-Ray package over the DVD, so if you just want to read my thoughts on the movie, skip this section. I will review the Blu-Ray. If you are wanting to know everything about the layout and the general features, Amazon is correct with both product descriptions, so you can trust them.

    When I first saw Sucker Punch in theaters, the art direction, CGI, and the colors was absolutely jaw dropping; this was one of the movies that I could see blasting on my TV screen. Well, I am happy to report that Sucker Punch looks and sounds terrific on Blu-Ray. Given the sensory overload Sucker Punch provides, one can only imagine how the potential of the , and the transfer does its justice and brings Sucker Punch to complete life upon your HD TV. The picture is crystal clear and sharp, which gives way to an absolutely dazzling high definition picture on screen. Sucker Punch’s intense colors, elaborate architecture, and stylized visuals all come to life onscreen, with a visual intensity on the same boat as any high production value video game would be able to achieve (Think Uncharted 2 or God of War 3. Sucker Punch can surely compete with both games in terms of visual splendor). All the little details of the visual intensity absolutely stand out and are crystal clear. You can see everything little snow-flake, bit of explosion, and piece of dust, yet the little details don’t substantiate the stylized and beautiful landscape and architecture. I give the picture an easy 10. It looks absolutely amazing. So safe to say, it is ABSOLUTELY worth buying for television viewing.

    The audio is not quite as impressive as the picture of the film (seems fitting, however, given the visual approach to the film), but the sound is no slouch either (I think this has to do with the fact that the Sound design by default is not as good as, say, Saving Private Ryan or Lord of the Rings). Sucker Punch will still work out your home theater system, so if you have a great sound system, it’s time to watch Sucker Punch with it. The movie really takes advantage of the DTS Sound track, as you will be able to hear the explosions surround you, the bullets clanking, whizzing, and whining and all around you, and the adjacent sound effects to the visual keys that Zack Snyder is so fond of using is crystal clear and satisfying. Your theater will rumble, and you will be totally surrounded by the immersive sound to really match the whole movie. What else could you ask for? I give the sound a 10, although the sound design is a 9.

    As most of you already know, the Blu-Ray version of Sucker Punch adds 18 minutes to the movie. This is a whole 18 minutes of new film footage. More dialogue is added to certain scenes, and while they really don’t radically make the story better in a way, it does add some fluency and color to the movie. These add more color and life to the characters and situations. There is also more action to make those peaks and valleys of the action more effective, and there are a couple more graphic shots to the action scenes, as there is a bit more gore. There is also the cut scene that Snyder had to remove (which deals with a sexual encounter), The most prominent addition to the film is a eye catching and theatrical musical number, and it doesn’t at all tone down the pure visual and aural onslaught the movie previously had. I’m not going to give out spoilers but the is worth seeing and makes the movie even more of a blast than it was in theaters. Really, what else can you ask for?

    As far as the rest of the special features go, here they are.

    Maximum Movie Moment with Zack Snyder: The informative and fun special feature from the Watchmen Blu-Ray returns for another round, with Zack Snyder stepping out of the director’s chair to give us more insight as to how the film was made, all interactive and almost feels hands-on to an extent. In the Maximum Movie Moment, Zack Snyder discusses how certain interesting and intricate shots and portions of the film were made, which really satisfy the question of “How did they film that?”. He is not on-screen the whole time, but there’s more than enough useful information to make the feature very worthwhile and awesome. In addition, some sketches and storyboards are thrown into the mix. Zack Snyder really shows how, and with something as interesting and useful as what he does with MMM, who needs it?

    *Sucker Punch: Behind the Soundtrack-A somewhat interesting mini-feature regarding the unique and stylistically interesting sound track. Unfortunately, it’s wait too short. Giving the short running time (only 3 minutes), Zack Snyder and and company do not go into much detail when it comes…

    Sucker Punch Extended Cut vs. Theatrical Cut Differences, June 29, 2011
    By 
    Senor Zoidbergo (Washington D.C.) –
      

      

    This review is from: Sucker Punch (Two-Disc Extended Edition) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)

    The extended cut of Sucker Punch adds approximately 17 minutes and 45 seconds of additional footage, and is R-rated. The extended cut is much darker than the theatrical cut; while not necessarily being more visually explicit, previously implied suggestions are now explicitly overt. The violence and action scenes have also been extended as well, with two re-inserted battle sequences, one with the orcs at the castle (arterial spurts of green orc blood), and the other with the German World War I zombies.

    I don’t think I quite understand Snyder’s multi-layered metaphorical comparisons between the brothel, asylum, and Baby Doll’s fantasy worlds, but I will say that the movie (especially the action sequences) are visually stunning, and the colors beautifully contrasted. Credit especially to the actresses for their proficient firearms handling (but where exactly did they store all those extra magazines I wonder?). However, it would be superficial to suggest that Sucker Punch is only about girls in anime costumes fighting monsters in fantasy worlds, though that is certainly an interpretation shared by many critics who panned the movie.

    Here are the main differences between the Extended Cut and Theatrical Cut; NOTE, SPOILERS FOLLOW, so continue reading at your own risk.

    (1) Baby Doll shoots at the stepfather a second time (as compared to a single time in the theatrical cut), resulting in some CG blood and an arm bullet wound, which the stepfather grabs at.

    (2) When Sweet Pea first meets Baby Doll (with Blue and the priest), Sweet Pea says, “the priest brought you here from the orphanage to lose your virginity, right?”. Then Blue says, “The High Roller is coming in 5 days to do a little flower picking..” There is no such comment about deflowering in the theatrical cut.

    (3) Rocket takes Baby Doll on an extended tour of the nightclub, showing her a backstage area where clients are not allowed. She shows Baby Doll the cleaning closet where new girls are assigned cleaning duties. They pass by the kitchen where the chef makes a lewd face at the girls, who ignore him, and walk onwards.

    (4) Full dance number of “Love is a Drug” as performed by Blue & Vera. It’s quite extravagant.

    (5) The cook attacks Rocket more violently and physically in the extended cut.

    (6) The backstage scene where Baby Doll explains her plans is extended. Vera writes the order of the dancers, with Sweet Pea performing first. Rocket and Sweet Pea then sit down, and Sweet Pea tells Rocket that she won’t help Baby Doll.

    (7) In the World War I scene, the Wiseman briefs the girls for a little longer. The map they are to capture is a map of the trenches and troop locations, the map will be sent via courier by zeppelin. The Wiseman then asks Amber how she likes the mech, to which Amber replies in the affirmative. The Extended Cut includes a great shot of the girls slowly walking out of the fog into no man’s land, and additional shots of zombie German troops rushing out of their respective trenches. Amber shoots down several attack German fighters before herself flying skyward, and Blondie grabs her Daewoo K3 and mows down a horde of attacking zombies, littering the battlefield with their corpses. There is additional hand-to-hand and (hatchet-to-bayonet vis a vis Blondie) combat in the trenches, and Baby Doll fights the Zombie commander initially in an extended sword fight. I’m glad they extended the WWI sequence, it looks fantastic.

    (8) Vera tries to cheer up Baby Doll pre-performance with a quote by Mark Twain about illusions.

    (9) The orc/castle/knight siege scene has been heavily extended, most prominently featuring a new scene of the girls jumping into the courtyard, and decimating the orcs using firearms and edged weapons, while performing various acrobatic maneuvers. Green orc blood spray across the screen. Additional shot of knights trying to break through the gate with a tree trunk. Extended combat scene of girls versus knights, and slow-motion scene of Blondie firing the side machine gun.

    (10) Blue tells Baby Doll that he will “pop that smile right off of her face”, whereas in the theatrical cut, he falters without completing the sentence.

    (11) The sequence where Amber is killed shows Blue’s gun being fired twice, rather than the slight vibration in the wine glass. Blue shoots Blondie when she’s on the ground an additional time. Nothing graphic is shown.

    (12) Blue attacks Baby Doll for a longer period of time (and more physically) in the extended cut, when backstage.

    (13) After Baby Doll is knocked unconscious, Sweet Pea steals a white dress while on the lam.

    (14) During the last, infamous scene between the High Roller and Baby Doll, white gloved hands undress Baby Doll down to her skivvies. High Roller and…
