"Sucker Punch" is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what's real and what is imaginary.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Gun-toting hotties combat assorted villains and their robot henchmen in this tawdry, repellent action fantasy."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"Snyder pulverises our senses with derivative digital images and obvious musical choices. But his failure to delineate the levels of 'reality' is confusing and self-defeating."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Sucker Punch is an example of what happens when creativity derails. It's a sensory overload of utter garbage on every level possible."
‑ Benjo Colautti, We Got This Covered
"If it wasn't executed with such panache it would probably qualify as one of the dumbest movies of 2011."
‑ Ali Gray,
"an optical feast"
‑ James Luxford, The National
"Snyder likes to think that his Russian nesting doll of a concept is enough to excuse its hollow center."
‑ William Goss,
"This movie isn't bad in the way some incompetently made movies are bad; this is bad because there's much skill evident in a pointless endeavor."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Wait, they're letting this guy remake "Superman"?"
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"While the visuals are quite impressive and go a long way towards helping the film, it's just not enough to recommend that you take the time to see "Sucker Punch.""
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Had Zack Snyder left no idea undeveloped, he might have had a better film, but underdevelopment appears to have been his motto."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"The movie spins out of control, until it collapses in a heap, senseless."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"A series of extravagant computer-generated adventure scenarios linked by grim mental hospital plot, Sucker Punch represents a particularly ambitious exercise in tedium."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Snyder was aiming for more than an action-packed popcorn flick -- making it hard to ignore that the filmmaker, much like Babydoll, temporarily lost his footing in reality."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"An ambitious yet flawed effort, but one executed with undoubted style and verve."
‑ Rob Power, SFX Magazine
"What a beautiful-looking mess."
‑ Matt Neal, The Standard
