Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared. From the Spartan slaughter of 300 to the visionary world of Watchmen, writer/director/producer Zack Snyder has transported audiences into visual dreamscapes of his creation. His latest cinematic mind trip takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl (The Uninvited's EmilyBrowning) whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker institutionalized reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, but her incredible adventures blur the lines between what's real and what is imaginary. Locked away against her will, but determined to fight for her freedom, she and four other girls battle everything from serpents to samurais on an unbelievable journey to set themselves free.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics 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.

Impressive effects, but mixed messages about women.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this comic book-like fantasy from the director of 300 has disturbing scenes that show men taking advantage of women ... whose sole purpose is to entertain the men. The main female characters are clad in skimpy clothing for much of the movie, too, which seems hypocritical, given that the film is about how a band of oppressed girls take back their power -- the movie ends up reinforcing some of the stereotypes it's theoretically out to bust. Though the fight scenes are often cartoonish in nature, they're unrelenting and brutal, including shoot-outs, swordfights, stabbings, beheadings, and the threat of sexual assault. There's some swearing ("s--t"), too.
