STARRING Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, and Abbie Cornish
DIRECTED BY Zack Snyder
Here be dragons. And awesome steampunk robots. And scantily-clad, sweet-looking girls like Vanessa Hudgens and Emily Browning wielding submachine guns. Yes, 300 director Zack Snyder’s new movie, Sucker Punch, is basically what happens when a male id is left totally unchecked. Browning stars as a girl known only as Baby Doll who’s been locked in a mental hospital by her evil stepfather. She and the institution’s other pretty young inmates — including Hudgens, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung, and Abbie Cornish — must band together to fight a group of devious captors for their freedom. Sorta like 300, except with more mini-skirts.
