Spoiler : If you haven’t watched ‘Sucker Punch’ and plan to watch it, don’t read this just yet.
OK, negative reviews have started to flood in for Zack Snyder’s new film ‘Sucker Punch’. I disagree.
In short Sucker Punch is a Snyder’s remake of the "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest". Sucker Punch has been criticized for its monotonous and meaningless action (I agree), portrayal of the girls in skimpy cloths (though the filming rarely focuses on it. The cloths are more about stylizing the scenes rather than titillation), lack of coherence, the list of flaws is endless.
This all can be excused for the message it has:
If situation says: “If you do not dance, you have no purpose”
Then you find a way to make the dance purposeful.
“Bakwas end!” was what I had said about One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. “Brilliant End!” was my reaction about Sucker Punch.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest was more about an individual’s win against the establishment, while Sucker Punch inspires you to “make the dance meaningful”. It tells us to glorify the battle against our life’s ordeals in our imagination. It tells you that you are the Hero who can win the battle.
May be yes you have to live with your lot in life but that should not stop you from making it worthwhile and delightful.
