Steampunk Nazi Zombies!
Well, it's the day after a big group field trip to the midnight showing of Sucker Punch. Or perhaps I should say several hours after the midnight showing of Sucker Punch, since technically it was today when we watched it. Meh, whatever.
Even after getting a good night's sleep I'm still processing that movie. It was certainly something different, but different in a good way. I think even with the strange layers of reality and sub-reality and fantasy, there's definitely something to cater to everyone. Few can claim to have giant samurai statues with chainguns and missile launchers, steampunk nazi zombies, dragons, orcs, and robots all in the same film, and by that achievement alone I say that Sucker Punch succeeded.
Honestly, it was a bit like watching a live action anime movie, and I think that despite negative reactions to the strange plot, the movie was entertaining. I was entertained, and therefore I think that the movie was worth my time. I don't watch movies to receive some kind of life changing message or to see incredibly boring 'indie' films, I go to see bullets, bombs, and babes. Sucker Punch delivers upon all of those categories.
So, if you like seeing sexy women cutting things apart with katanas, I can definitely recommend this movie for you.
