Consensus: It's technically impressive and loaded with eye-catching images, but without characters or a plot to support them, all of Sucker Punch's visual thrills are for naught.

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.

This is a film that nobody under 13 should watch, and I think It deserves an R rating rather than a PG-13.

The hyperstylized visuals are spectacular and a total delight, but they are not exactly enough to compensate for an empty plot that is almost uninvolving. The… More

Cool on the surface, but all hollow on the inside. In a visual and auditory sense, this movie is pure candy. Baby Doll's imagination invites us to a… More
