I appreciate the live action comic book genre. Sucker Punch is excellent -- gorgeous, high adrenalin, a psychedelic experience with a dark and brooding hangover. To my mind it is a much better film than The Black Swan, which it reminds me of to that movie's detriment. I am so sick of the ubiquitous blow 'em up, plotless action adventure crap. Sucker Punch is not one of those. It is a metafiction of story within story within story -- all of which rock. And Jena Malone is so much more an actress than Natalie Portman will ever even understand.
