Half the reviews on this site have to be plants by the studio. This film is nearly unwatchable. Terrible story. Over stylized direction. Annoying "green-screen" CGI action. The only thing to like is the pretty girls, and if that's all you want to see, cruise the net, you'll find plenty of those.
movie looked very nice, but the storyline was very weak
visually appealing, weak story
Fantastically created. What a story line.
Wow! The imagination is a powerful thing! A movie worth watching!
it is alright
worst zack snyder movie, too bad. BUT I think the long trailer SPOILED everything. Directing is Superb as ever though.
those girls are sexy
Visually stunning and awesome soundtrack. Story is lacking.
good movie, will go see it again
good movie, enjoyed it
To start with, it was visually stunning. An incrfedible feast for the eye, but much like little girls dressing in their mothers clothes, I found it was always trying to be something it wasn't. Snyder has a great visual eye, and I cannot fault the actresses, for they were all incredible, but I always felt the movie was not living up to its expectations. Did not mean I did not get a thrill out of the giant robots and dragons and girls with guns in REALLY skimpy outfits, and on that merit alone, it was avery good movie, just do not expect anything deeper.
a great action thriller--very impressive--entertaining-
great action !
Brilliant! Zack Synder does it again. The grit and harsh reality that these girls are living are so well captured through the acting as well as the directing that I am transported to this world they have created. A must see.
AWESOME SPECIAL EFFECTS
Amazing graphics, awesome storyline, very anime'ical'
So awesome...I loved it.
Amazing movie. So, so good.
I really loved this moive it was great it had a lot of action and I also loved that it was kick ass girl moive where all the girls did the action and fighting seen who said we need to have men to do all of these kinds of moives it was really good assume and unbelieable great and all the action scences and stunts and I plan to see it again and this is my future costume for this year for halloween me and my freinds plan to dress up like these kick ass girls, just great moive filled action and your wide imagination and great job to the director of the moive as well too.
With this and "Beastly," Vanessa Hudgens has positioned herself at the forefront of today's top actresses.
It's this year's Avatar. 10/10
Great action movie with a twist...all your childhood action fantasies come true and then some!
Really good movie. Zack Snyder is an amazing film maker. His action scenes are incredible, though mostly CGI they still feel real. The story is very different but I enjoyed it a lot. I recommend this to anyone who enjoyed 300 or The Watchmen.
Epic movie, with a very profound message at the end. In order to understand the message, you MUST pay attention to the movie.
Well worth going to see!!!
You have to go see this one. Great directing. Full of action throughout. Keeps you glued to your seat. Fun movie.
Get your food before the movie!!!
I can't believe this movie sucked.
You will either love or hate this film. I loved it. Some people left the theatre half way through. It's VERY postmodern: it's about visual image over story, juxtaposition of contradictory images, and reality being relative (truth is what you make it). If you're willing to suspend your disbelief and let the director take you on a wild and crazy ride, you'll enjoy where you wind up in the end. Just so you know what to expect, imagine a dream about Kill Bill meets a sci-fi/fantasy video game in burlesque show costumes. It's tons of fun if you let it be what it is!
Visually stunning, but you could see where the FX team was "heavily influenced" by other movies. Hell Boy, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, I Robot, LOTR, Harry Potter all made appearances in this movie. The story line made no sense.
Amazing Special Effects - love the dragon.
eh it was alright
Good movie....great visual effects.
AWESOME SPECIAL EFFECTS!!
excelent movie loved the characters and plot was excellent great acting could have been easier to understand plot line.
First of all I have to say I had been looking forward to this movie for 2 years. I know their has been a bit of a negative response to this film but I loved it. It wasn't my favorite Zack Snyder movie but I did enjoy it. It was something new. The visuals were stunning. I do plan on seeing it again... and maybe again after that. Yes the story had flaws but I would see it again just for the visuals. The opening is spectacular. I can't say I didn't expect that though. Zack Snyder is known for mind blowing openings. Oh and its amazing in IMAX.
Good use of special effects in fight scenes, liked the storyline although a few of the girls/dancers didn't really add anything to the movie so I didn't feel their characters were neccessary in completeing the story or main characters goal in the film.
great female heroine figure
Saw sucker punch this morning at the first viewing and it was a spectacle. Closely resembling the artistic nature of 300 with jaw dropping visuals from avatar and tron. Absolutely a must see. 5 stars *****
