Three days before welcoming 2012 states in the local news that my birth year’s gonna have a blast this 2012. I’m sticking to it hopefully, LOLS. Everything happens for a reason and because it’s complicated I don’t bother asking why. All work and no play make Karen a dull girl. I treat myself the first year’s day with watching good ol’ movies showed last year.
Sucker Punch intrigued me. It is like Martin Scorcece’s Shutter Island who starred Leonardo DiCaprio the difference is they are all girls inside the mental institution. Babydoll played by Emily Browning is about to be institutionalized by her stepfather at the Lennox House for the Mentally Insane.
After her mother and sister’s death, she was the one to be blamed according to her stepfather because of insanity. As she was introduced to her new ‘home’, the scene was about Babydoll getting lobotomized. As me wondering why, the institution changed into a mobster where the girls are treated as high class dancers and you know what I mean. As she dances, she imagines the other world and prepares to escape as well as her four other friends. There she met the Wise Man. He told the girls to get five things in order for them to escape whom where they are now. Assumingly, they are all persistent to get it but unfortunately three of her friends were killed naming Amber (Jamie Chung), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), Rocket (Jena Malone). Desperate to escape, Babydoll instructed Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish) to manage herself to go as she mesmerize the guys roaming at parking lot. The scene got backed when Babydoll is about to lobotomized and it was a success. She is now dull and looked like her name, Babydoll.

Movies like these are giving the audience what is like to be in there. After all, the viewer will pick its own idea beyond his wide array of musings and imagination. I say that the movie was quite poorly written but went plus on its visuals and the soundtrack, overall, I liked it.
