Sucker Punch – Trailer Review

Trailers are my Achilles heel. I abandon reason when it comes to trailers. And a trailer like this – so thrillingly nonsensical! – was bound to floor me. This is, for me, what Inception should have looked like. The sheer momentum of this thing! Those pounding drums. That killer tagline. The ridiculous, fetishized, sword-wielding heroine…so unstoppable she makes you giddy. I love the fact she seems to be battling the same samurai Jonathan Pryce fought in Brazil. The enthusiasm for mayhem is infectious. Yes, it does seem a bit like exploitation cinema. But Russ Meyer never delivered this kind of adrenaline. Okay, so the plot is baloney. The pitch is: “Alice in Wonderland, with machine guns”. Are you in?
