9. SUCKER PUNCH (2011)For all of the wild imagination and scatterbrained ambition Zack Snyder poured into Sucker Punch, it’s curious how he totally ignored the fact that most of this ass-kicking chicks flick takes place inside an imaginary brothel.
Nude call girls are about the only things Snyder doesn’t toss into Sucker Punch for horny male viewers’ sakes. Throughout the film, the sexy actresses—Emily Browning, Jena Malone, Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, and Jamie Chung—parade around in lingerie, schoolgirl outfits, and provocative military garb. The beauties bust guns and swing samurai swords all while Snyder catches their bodily gyrations in slo-mo close-ups.
None of the script makes sense, anyway, so Snyder should’ve just gone for broke and made the setting an “all nude, all the time” brothel. That way, we would’ve been too distracted to question the movie’s pointless dragons, Nazi zombies, and appearance by Mad Men’s Jon Hamm.
