Sucker Punch

Worth seeing for the hair, makeup, and costume design (minus Babydoll's various takes on the Japanese school girl uniform). My favorite scene was Babydoll's first fight scene -against the 3 giant samurai, when she learns of the various items she'll need to attain freedom. It was like a video game, music video, and live action anime all rolled into one. The fight scenes were cool but there was barely any plot. Spoiler alert. One huge complaint being you never find out how the other girls ended up at Lennox House, making it hard to have any emotional connection to them, making it next to impossible to care whether or not they get out. End spoilers. It's just one battle scene after another as they go after the various items. Visually amazing but that's about it.
