Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch

just didn’t vibe with a movie that takes a group of young women forcibly put in an asylum and sexually assaulted and forced into sex work being also used for a Cool Sexy Fantasy where they are Badass But Still Sexy. The fight scenes made up of heavy male gaze don’t work for me when the fights are being used to represent those women being forced to dance for men against their will. 

Idk I just don’t think the “sexy” fighting scenes are okay when the context of this movie centers around a group of abused women. It just didn’t handle these themes with any kind of empathy or grace.
