Movie Inspiration: Sucker Punch
When CJ and I started seeing the trailers for “Sucker Punch” we had the same reaction. It’s like someone decided to make a movie that had all of his favorite things – beautiful girls in skimpy clothes, kicking butt with automatic weapons, swords, and martial arts, against all manner of bad guys. Oh, and then he tried to write a plotline to fit it.
And yes, even before we saw that it was a man directing it, we had no doubt that it was, in fact, a man that came up with this idea.
The fight sequences were well done, but unfortunately the rest of it couldn’t keep up. It was CJ that suggested perhaps Mr. Snyder should have done with this idea was make a video game, and then used the non-fighting sequences as cut scenes between the action. A first-person shooter where you go from fighting 30-foot mini-gun wielding dudes to dragons to zombie soldiers to robots? THAT sounds like fun.
