Sucker Punch

***warning - mild spoilers in the fourth paragraph***

Tonight I went to see Sucker Punch.  I mostly knew the premise of the movie before I got there - a mental patient imagines a different life for herself.  There are a couple more layers to it than that, but it's the basic idea.

Steve told me that it was getting pretty iffy reviews, that some found it to be too unrelenting and thought that it was obviously written by a man who likes video games.  These reviews were pretty spot on - but I fail to see how that's a bad thing!

It was a pretty gritty movie, but the visuals were just amazing.  If you are like me and consider imagery to be the most important thing when deciding which action movies to see - go see this movie.  For reals.  It's very pretty.

There's a rather predictable plot, but that doesn't mean it's a bad plot.  Not ever movie has to have unexpected twists and turns.  There's a little more sister-death than I am comfortable with, but then again any amount of sister death is too much for me.

In short, it's a good movie.  The visuals are great, the story is good if a bit predictable.  There isn't a lot of blood or swearing or sex or anything like that, which is kinda surprising now that I think about it.  Weird.  But yeah, if you like action and pretty imagery and attractive ladies, this is the movie for you.
