Sucker Punch gets animated for new inexplicable short

Mar. 15, 2011by:

I don't get SUCKER PUNCH.

Believe me, I'm a huge Zack Snyder apologist, as I love 300 in all it's absurd macho glory, and I thought he did a fine job with WATCHMEN and I LIKED his changed ending. But SUCKER PUNCH? I just don't get it.

I suppose I'm just going to have to wait and see the actual film which will hopefully clear up my confusion, but the whole INCEPTION-ish escaping into the mind where crazy things happen in order to produce real world results via finding maps and keys and lighters and such, isn't really made clear in the trailer, and the whole thing looks like a parody of a Zack Snyder film.

I will say these dreams full of hot women and gunfire more closely resemble mine than the ones from INCEPTION, which often look suspiciously like everyday life, but I'm holding my breath on how this project actually turns out, as it's not doing the best job of letting people know exactly what the hell is going on with these trailers.

This short animated film attempts to create a fragment of backstory. We see the birth of one of the masked soldiers the girls fight in the trailer who are apparently robo-zombies, fashioned from human dead soldiers. Do figments of one's imagination need a backstory?

I don't get SUCKER PUNCH. Watch the video.

Extra Tidbit: It looks like FANTASIA for adults.

Oh I'm prepared alright!!!

Uhhhhh, what is it that you don't get exactly because this movie probably has one of the most straightforward premises I've ever seen. Some girls are locked in an insane asylum and want to escape. The only way they can will themselves to do it though is to imagine they're battling through some batshit crazy stuff. So while we see them killing soldiers and robots, they're really killing the people who run the asylum which is also used as a brothel where they whore out these abused women.

I dug the short. Reminds me of the some of the Animatrix's better offerings.

I'm stoked for this movie. And Zack Snyder is a smart man for doing this. Think about it, if he didn't do something original now, people would start questioning him once Superman is released. This looks like a fun and cool way of showing another side of his filmmaking chops.

Even the back story had a back story with that one. I like the art style of the short though and I, for one, couldn't be more excited for this movie.

Oh look, now there's animated shorts to help explain the backstory.

Kind of like "Southland Tales".

It's just a crazy action movie with fantasy elements and hot girls. In other words, sign me up.

You're looking too deep, it's just a fun acid trip for your eyes.

It looked like fun...but then I heard about the musical parts. Bitches be singin? AND it's PG-13??? (I generally don't care about ratings, but for Zack Snyder I was surprised.)

Hey Tassi

I think that is sort of the point. Every piece of marketing says "you will be unprepared"... and that's what you are.

From Snyder's other movies we know what we should expect. The cinematography, the women, intense action, the look and feel. Go in ready to enjoy it and be blown away by what we don't know.

People complain we get to much of the movie in trailers. Sucker Punch gives not much beyond hotties, gun play, monsters, swords... wait, I don't need much more than that!

I'm Ready

I am very much looking forward to Sucker Punch. Snyder hasn't let me down yet. He has a great style to all his films and they're fun! So, bring it!
