My So-Called Movie Review: Sucker Punch PG-13 (110 min)

A young girl is institutionalized by her abusive stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the mental facility (IMBd.com).

BlacBlouse Rating: 6.8/10


 First impression: What in the world?! For the life of me, couldn't figure out what was going on, until the end of the movie...turns out this chick (Baby Doll, the main character) was escaping reality, then escaping reality again - in the midst of escaping reality...if that makes any sense. Gawd, I feel lost. In any case, it was definitely an interesting movie. Makes me wonder if the movie was based off of a video game. No idea.  If this type of film is your gig...Science Fiction, Escapism, Combat Sequences and Seductive Dancing...then check it out at your local movie theater and let me know your thoughts. See trailer below. As always, Enjoy!
