Sucker Punch

Great furore has attended the opening of Zack Snyder’s new action fantasy epic Sucker Punch.  Critics hate it;, so much so that some fear Snyder will be sacked from the Superman franchise. What’s more,   Anne Billson has damned it for its sexist use of fetishwear.  I know nothing about it, but I thoroughly enjoyed The 300, and adored The Watchmen.  So for me, Synder is someone to watch.  I love his visual sense and his energy and damn it all, intelligence. (The Watchmen is a dense and complex movie – Synder could easily have bastardised it and simplified it it, as Timur Bekmambetov did to Mark Millar’s fabulous Wanted.  But he didn’t.)

But there seem to be quite a few people out there who think Snyder is the embodiment of heartless soulless film-making…

Anyway, the film is now out in UK cinemas, so I’m looking forward to seeing it, so I can judge for myself.
