Now I will in no way argue that all of those items were any way other then horrendously....but at least they were handled.
Conversely, suckerpunch rambles incohrenently back and forth with no coherent story or growth to it's characters at all.
In fairness, some of the greatest 'films' of all time have had non linear narratives and no definite establishment of character.
I get that it doesn't work like that for Hollywood films, but if Snyder had put this idea into an arthouse film, or an independant film, maybe we'd be looking at it differently and it'd be a cult classic... But then maybe it wouldn't have had all the cool effects.
I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.
"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
