Starts really well. Ends disastrously.
I don't always need context to get something from a movie, but a little would have gone a long way here. Its atmospheric yes, has some interesting creepy audio and visceral visuals, but there was nothing to tie it to, or care about, or be fearful of. Some might call it an incoherant mess and they wouldn't be wrong. Others might call it an experimental masterpiece, and maybe they're right. But my legs swing firmly on the former side of the fence.
Watching Sucker Punch is like watching a friend you don't really like play a videogame for two hours. Making things worse is the stranger sat between you both aggressively wanking over his playlist full of shit reworkings of your favourite songs.
Sucker Punch is not only as bad as you've heard, it's worse.
