Sucker Punch plot line via
Sucker Punch stars Emily Browning as Babydoll, a 1950s girl put into an insane asylum by her evil stepfather, who is hoping to have her oblivated before she can talk to the police. She has five days to escape the asylum, or she will be lobotomized by a series of electro-shock treatments. She hatches a plan for an escape, wherein she must steal a handful of key objects – and each quest, for such things as a lighter, sparks a whole dream sequence in which she retreats from the grim reality before her to a fantasy world where the rules of time and space don’t apply. If she needs, say, a knife to aid in her escape, then she has a dream about a samurai sword.
Her fellow in-patients include Abbie Cornish (Sweetpea), Jena Malone (Sweetpea’s younger sister Rocket), Vanessa Hudgens (Blondie), and Jamie Chung (Amber). Through dreams, they are transported between real life at the institution, World War I – alongside zombie German soldiers and dragons, and a brothel run by their “real world” charge nurse (Carla Gugino), who gives them sound therapy treatment that transports them between realities. Jon Hamm costars as High Roller who is the a**hole trying to take Babydoll‘s virginity – before she gets lobotomized.
Chicks kicking ass? ‘Nough said!
