Sucker Punch as "Alice in Wonderland with machine guns," including
dragons, B-25 bombers, giant mech suits, and armies of undead German
Sucker Punch, set in the 1950s, tells the story of Baby Doll (Emily
Browning), who is trying to hide from the pain caused by her evil
stepfather while imprisoned in a mental institution in which she starts
to imagine an alternate reality. She plans to escape from that
imaginary world, but to do that she needs to steal five objects before
she is captured by an unknown adversary. In order to cope with her new
stressful situation, she enters the hyper-real world of her
imagination, and the lines between reality and dream begin to blur.
Lessons learned in this fantasy world could help Baby Doll and her four
friends escape their real-world fate.
