Zack Snyder’s SUCKER PUNCH

Zack Snyder’s SUCKER PUNCH

Movie review by Dennis D. McDonald

Bullet point review:

  • Strange film, oddly entertaining.
  • Can’t tell if the Netflix Blu-ray is the theatrical or the extended cut; I think the former.
  • Forced commercials at the beginning that are next-to-impossible to skip when viewed via Corel software on a Windows 7 Sony Vaio caused me to have to restart the movie three times.
  • No extras since this is a Netflix “rental” Blu-ray. 
  • Loved the dragon chasing the B-25.
  • Some clever camera tricks in the dressing room.
  • Lead actresses appear to be neither dancers nor action stars and that shows in many of the scenes.
  • Main bad guy with pencil thin mustache is not convincing.
  • Fun special effects but action sequences are over-long and repetitive.
  • Scott Glenn is wasted in this film.
  • For me the most interesting character was played by Jena Malone. 
  • Sequences seem cobbled together from reconstituted TV, movie, and videogame sequences. Haven’t the producers of this read any of the classics from which to steal?
