** Babydoll views the High Roller--[[spoiler:the lobotomy specialist]]--as an evil, slimy, threatening man, [[spoiler:but in reality he's extremely reluctant about his job, viewing lobotomy as flawed and inefficient, especially since his latest patient wasn't in need of a lobotomy at all.]] The rest of the orderlies are much the same--they're depicted as passively malicious and threatening from what we see of them in the hallucinations, [[spoiler:but after the lobotomy, they've had enough of Blue and stop him from raping Babydoll.]] In addition, the asylum's psychologist, Dr. Gorski, notes that she tried to reach out to Babydoll in reality but Babydoll didn't respond, whereas in the hallucinations, Babydoll takes her lessons to heart. Gorski is intimidating when introduced in the fantasy world, but isn't anything like that in reality.
** As for Gorski, her role is interpreted as the person trying to reach out and help her in both universes - in the asylum universe she perceives Babydoll's actions incorrectly and she cannot offer the aid she needs, while in the brothel universe Babydoll takes the role Gorski represents and her intentions and brings them to fruition. In the brothel reality Babydoll reframes her limitations as someone actively working against her kindness.
* AmazonBrigade: Babydoll imagines her friends as such in her (second!) fantasy world. They're each a [[OneManArmy One-Woman Army]] (except for Amber who's an AcePilot) who can wipe out hundreds of enemies.

* TheFifties: AnachronismStew aside, the movie seems to take place in that era, which adds a sense of nostalgia and more sex appeal to their already sexy outfits.



* AdultFear: The first few minutes of the movie certainly qualify. Babydoll fighting so hard against what is an implied rape attempt, only to have the attacker turn on her sister. The accidental shooting. The fear in the scene is less about the scary stepfather (a child's interpretation), it's about the helplessness (the adult fear).
** The themes the film focuses on (rape, objectification, etc.) are fairly mature as well.

* AnachronismStew[=/=]FantasyKitchenSink: When half the movie is hallucinations, this doesn't come as a surprise. These scenes may not take place in the same world. In one scene the girls are fighting Orcs and armored knights using modern firearms, bombs made out of propane tanks and ''a B-25 Mitchell bomber with 50. cal mounted machine guns''. In another scene, they use their shotguns, M4 carbines, Colt 1911 and katana against robotic future cyber-guards, or said modern firearms and a HumongousMecha in a World War 1 setting against steam- and ClockPunk zombie Imperial German soldiers. Although the referenced action genres did exist in the '50s in one form or another, most of their tropes hadn't completely crystallized. The visual style of the action scenes wouldn't have developed until at least 40 years later. Also, the music in the brothel setting; "Love Is The Drug" (used in a cut scene) came out in 1975, not the 1950s, and that's about the earliest-released song in the movie [[spoiler: though the brothel sequence was a hallucination]]. The B-25 itself is a meta example, having a jet engine in place of one of its props.
** The ExpandedUniverse focuses on several of the enemies. The samurai crossed the multiverse to get at Baby Doll (at one point winding up in Gulf War II-era Iraq) and the Imperial Germany zombies are made from steam and machinery.

--->'''Narrator''': --->'''Narrator:''' Everyone has an angel, a guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day, [[{{Mentors}} old man]]. Next day, [[DecoyProtagonist a little girl]]. But don't let appearances fool you. They can be fierce as any dragon, yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart, reminding that it's us. It's every one of us who holds the [[YourMindMakesItReal power over the worlds we create]]. We can deny our angels exist, convince ourselves they can't be real. But they show up anyway in [[BedlamHouse strange places]] and at [[TheFifties strange times]]. They can speak through any character we can imagine. They'll shout through demons if they have to, daring us, challenging us to fight.

[[note]] both about person who goes insane due to many MANY issues and changes the world through "characters" they imagined / imaginary friends, a guide, with help from a team; while Sucker Punch is feminine focused, ''Fight Club'' is really masculine and violent. ''Fight Club'' is about too much of anything (anti-consumerism, inhibition) and ''Sucker Punch'' is also about that in a very different sense (too much violence against women will hurt you in the end/rape culture is bad/don't be a perv). ''Sucker Punch'' is all about the characters and their mental growth and goal getting, ''Fight Club'' is about the big theatrical audacity of the characters to do what they do. Both feature excessive metaphorical violence and both have an anti-accepted culture sentiment - rape culture and mass consumerism mostly, but other side morals slipped in about freedom.

''Sucker Punch'' is a [[GenreBusting fantasy action horror thriller film]] directed, written, produced and conceptualized by Creator/ZackSnyder, his first film not to be an adaptation, and released by Creator/WarnerBros. The film is about a about a young girl, Babydoll (Creator/EmilyBrowning), and her FireForgedFriends. Together, they plan escape from the insane asylum where they're being held against their will. Babydoll can't cope with the trauma of being trapped there, and imagines the asylum as a fantasy world instead. But she can't cope with her fantasy world either... which is when things get complicated.
