Sucker Punch

Anyone else planning on going and seeing it this weekend? I want to but I am afraid it is going to be one of those movies that look great in previews but a let down in the theater.

Anyone seen an advanced screening by chance?

I will be previewing this before release, but the English release date is April 1st.....*grumble*

All the trailers look very style over substance, and that seems to be what snyder does best. The plot is supposedly quite intricate, but I didn't completely hate watchmen so I think this could be a decent watch.

Im tempted to see it for the following reasons.

-Robot Samurai
-Swords
-Hot Ass Blonde chick in a school girl outfit!

.......

the third reason wins, this movie is good even if it sucks just for that fact.

I'll be watching it because of the blonde babe. But it kind of looks a bit cheesy. That fake russian accent, and that little girl from School of Rock just weirds me out. I'll never forget how annoying she was. Even if she does have a set now.

For all the reasons listed in this thread and also because apparently it has every epic trope that makes people like us happy on the inside(Samurais, trench warfare, robots, hot chicks. :D), I will most definitely watch this. I don't care what the plot is like, we don't often get high quality CGI of everything we love.

Sums it up completely. I cannot wait to see this tomorrow.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
