Old news, but Europe (and Scandinavia) are a bit behind you guys in movie releases.
Went to watch Sucker Punch last Friday, despite the negative reviews it's gotten. I was a little iffy about it, because I feared that the critics were right, but I'm glad I went.
I don't know what the movie lacked from a professional movie reviewer's point of view, since I'm not one, but I found it hysterically awesome. The opening slow-motion scene with Emily Browning's cover of 'Sweet Dreams' was fantastic. And when a giant samurai with a chain gun entered the picture, I stopped blinking for the rest of the movie.
Sure, the action is mindless and the story a bit messy, but I don't understand why this movie was panned. Did people expect Inception 2? They know it's not the same director, right? They watched the trailer, right? I don't get it.
Also, apparently the hot potato on this movie is that Snyder is portraying women in the movie in a demeaning way. Some of the critics called him a borderline misogynist. Edited, Apr 25th 2011 3:20pm by Mazra
