* FirstPersonPeripheralNarrator: By all means, Babydoll is the one driving the plot. But as discussed on DecoyProtagonist, [[spoiler:she decides Sweet Pea is the main character and lets her be the one who escapes the asylum.]]

''Sucker Punch'' is a [[GenreBusting fantasy action horror thriller film]] directed, written, produced and conceptualized by 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.

* LighterAndSofter: At least as far as ZackSnyder's prior work with live action cinema, very little outright gore and is more internal/metaphorical than outright pushing the audience to their very limits, with disgust and outrage, if anything it's lighter and softer with its point than his prior live action movies.

* AllMenArePerverts: Most of the men are depicted as sexual predators who want to have their way with teenage girls. With the exception of the Wise Man/[[spoiler:Bus Driver]] [[spoiler: and arguably the Lobotomist in the extended cut]]. It's subverted towards the end though as [[spoiler: the rest of Blue's croneys are disgusted at what he keeps doing to the girls, especially when he wants to rape a lobotomised Babydoll]].

* NaziZombies: Sorta. Although some Nazi imagery is invoked, the gas-masked undead German soldiers are really more like [[UsefulNotes/ImperialGermany Imperial German]] soldiers from WorldWarI. Some even have pickelhaube helmets.
