Family-Faith Film Review: Sucker Punch
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting

Sucker Punch — Inchoate fantasy designed especially for those who like their movies to be thrill rides devoid of such niceties as coherent plot, writing or wrap-up. Director Zack Snyder, who co-wrote the screenplay with Steve Shibuya, supposedly folds a “girl power” message somewhere in here among the bustiers, long false eyelashes and set-piece fights pitting a quintet of combative maidens — played by Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung — against hosts of robot soldiers.

Considerable intense gun and knife violence, at least one instance of profanity, fleeting crude language, and a couple of scenes of sexual menace. A-III — adults. (PG-13) 2011
