Default Re: The Official Zack Snyder Thread - Part 3

I just watched Sucker Punch and it's an interesting experiment to say the least. It shares somthing with inception in that it has fantasy worlds within a fantasy world. The Brothel is a good choice as a representation of the mental hospital, as the character clearly has dealt with issues of sexual abuse, and I get that every time Babydoll dances that she puts herself in another fantasy where she feels more empowered. However, I think Snyder jumped around a little too much .

Why can't you stick to one fantasy and let the empowerment come from there rather than creating multiple scenarios? Sucker Punch needed more focus . It's a great visual experience and the story had potential, but it doesn't hit the mark completely.
