Sucker Punch is an all-female fantasy action film directed and written by 300 Film Director Zack Snyder.


A 20-year old woman was admitted by her stepfather to the mental institution as a young girl.

She discovered her ability to go to the parallel world when she was asked to dance during one of the dancing sessions. She fights with some dangerous monster in her first time being in that world. Meanwhile, she dances well in the world while fighting monster in the parallel world.

Babydoll asked other four female dancers to be part of her mission to collect five items. In each mission or dance, they will be collecting one item.

During the last mission, struggle got real. One of the dancers were killed by bomb in the parallel world while being stabbed in the real world.


The visual and sound effects of Sucker Punch are almost similar to the 300 film for the reason that these two films have same director. Cinephile who loved 300, World War II fanatics, and Zombie film lovers will definitely enjoy this film.

Video games addict will somehow enjoy this film but they will lack imagination as this film is not based on video games. The film has similarity with some trailers and in-game movie in Role-Playing Games (RPG).

Actions and fighting scenes might suffice the imagination of cinephiles but the lack of story will definitely shoo them away.  Video games offer more story than this film.

The title itself is not even explained in almost all scene. They may have explained the meaning through its depth story but the film must explain in a lighter mean of telling the reason. This is an original story unlike Batman films with similar dark story.
