Reviews Comments: I didn't like it. Sucker Punch film/book review by kay4today

When I first saw the trailers I expected a dumb and entertaining movie aimed primary at geeks. First I didn't want to watch it, because too much Fanservice (there was enough of it in the trailers believe me...) makes me feel uncomfortable, but then various people highly recommended it, praised it and gushed about it like you wouldn't believe so I gave it a try.

The first question I asked myself after this movie was why the hell would Snyder cram his message about "you control your own fate blablabla" (which in my opinion is a pretty stupid message) and so on down our throat in a movie where blond schoolgirls fight Nazi Zombies and Dragons? Well, I think that Snyder with all his pointless symbolism and other stupid stuff he put in simply wanted to make the movie seem insightful or intelligent. You don't have to be very bright to get the message. In fact the movie flat out told us. Also you can find in almost anything some sort of message or deeper meaning if you search hard enough (or want to find it...). Oh and then there are the characters and their relationships, but to be honest... I really didn't care about them at all. There wasn't enough time for any complexity or development. I found all of them to be flat and extremely boring.

The most annoying thing about the movie are the fans. After expressing my dislike of this movie to various people almost everybody told me that I "don't get it" or that I should "open my mind a little bit". I understand the message of the movie alright? I just find the message to be stupid and handled in a ridiculous way.

To me this movie is nothing more than mindless and entertaining stupidity, but since I'm not a fan of Crazy Awesome or Rule Of Cool I didn't feel entertained. Oh and Snyder also made the probably most stupid and ridiculous excuse for Fanservice I've ever heard.
