Sucker Punch: A Flickcharter’s Movie Review

Nigel Druitt

A self-described fanboy, Nigel has always looked at movies as entertainment first and art second. (Not that a film can't be both.) His personal Flickchart Top 20 is dominated by the likes of Frodo Baggins, Indiana Jones, Marty McFly and Christopher Nolan. Nigel is the Canadian arm of the Flickchart Blog, but try not to hold that against him. You can find him on Flickchart as johnmason, where his chart is currently undergoing a major overhaul.

    Nice review, Nigel. I, despite the negative reviews, will see it when I get the chance. However, after 300 and Watchmen I was high on Snyder and, as an animation fan, I was drooling over Legend of the Guardians. Then, it ultimately disappointed me. I’ll try not to overhype Sucker Punch on myself though.

    Thanks, Travis.

    I actually haven’t seen Legend of the Guardians yet; been wanting to.

    I know a lot of people are being hard on Sucker Punch, but I enjoyed it for the harmless bit of fluff it is. As I said, it would even be better if it had lightened up a bit. And I mainly like it better than 300 just because it’s not so gory. The geysers of blood in that movie are just a little too much for me to call it “fun”.

    I’m really beginning to wonder whether Snyder’s style is really going to fit with Superman. Despite the fact that Christopher Nolan’s in his corner (a perfect fit for Batman, but isn’t he too dark for Superman?), I’m really starting to worry about The Man of Steel…
