&– Sucker Punch Was Utter Brilliance

So ever since I first watched “Sucker Punch” I’ve been thinking. I don’t see how people could say this movie sucked. Sure the plot was a little different but I give this movie a thumbs up for originality. After watching it I just sat there staring at the screen like “What happened?” There’s so much room for interpretation but without a doubt the theme of this movie is courage (that’s what I got out of it).  Besides the lovely sexy costumes and the depth of the plot, and the action (the action was awesome an all girls action flick doesn’t happen often) there were a lot of great quotes throughout the movie. Here are some that I really enjoyed and I hope you enjoy too.

Who honors those we love for the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us? And at the same time sings that we will never die?  Who teaches us whats real and how to laugh at lies?, Who decides why we live and what we’ll die to defend? Who chains us and Who holds the key that can set us free… It’s You!, You have all the weapons you need., Now Fight!  (Sweet Pea)

Have you ever wanted to just take something back? You know, something you said, something you did?  (Rocket)

And finally. This question. The mystery of whose story it will be, of who draws the curtain. Who is it that chooses our steps in a dance? Who drives us mad, flashes us with whips, crowns us with victory when we survive the impossible? Who is it that tells all these things? (Sweet Pea)

Listen, Child, If you do not dance, you have to purpose, And we don’t keep things here that have no purpose. You don’t wanna be judged? You won’t be. You think you’re too weak? You’re not. Your fight for survival starts right now. You have all the weapons you need.. Now fight!  (Madam Gorski)

I’m saying you go home, go to your family. You tell your mom what Rocket said, make her happy. Go out and live a normal life. Love, be free, you have to live for all of us now. (Baby Doll)

No, this is right. This was never my story, it’s yours. Now don’t screw it up okay?  (Baby Doll)

You can deny angels exist, Convince ourselves they can’t be real. But they show up anyway, at strange places and at strange times. They can speak through any character we can imagine. They’ll shout through demons if they have to. Daring us, challenging us to fight.  (Sweet Pea)


Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can’t know what form they’ll take One day, Old man, Next day, Little girl. But don’t let appearances fool you, They can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they’re not here to fight our battles. But to whisper from our hearts. Reminding that it’s us. Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create.  (Sweet Pea)

If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.  (The Wise man)

….if Blue finds out he’ll kill us….
We’re already dead. (Rocket)

For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the sheltered will never know.  (The Wise man)

I lost everyone I loved. And then they locked me away. With no where to hide from the pain. (Baby Doll)

Remember, don’t ever write a check with your mouth, you can’t cash with your ass (The Wise man)

Blue: Did you lose your fight?!
Baby Doll: No.. I just won it.. *Shoves knife into his shoulder* You’ll never have me..

Did you like the movie Sucker Punch? What did you get from the movie? What did you think of the ending? I almost died at the end I was so confused but it was a great sense of confusion. I’m a sucker for a happy ending and there wasn’t one here.
