Sucker Punch (2011)

What is real?
When a young girl is delivered to an insane asylum, the lines between the real world and hallucinations become blurred.  Baby Doll and her fellow inmates hatch a plot to break out of the asylum.  They have several tasks to complete before their escape.  In Sucker Punch, Zack Snyder (300 Watchmen) gives us a story within a story within a story.  The film is beautifully shot, has a great surreal feel to it, an interesting story, and some shots that are absolutely brilliant.  It also has an awesome trailer and a great director, but in general, Sucker Punch fails to deliver. 

Sucker Punch barely misses a full impact with 3 out of 5 Poblanos!
