SUCKER PUNCH

Steve Biodrowski and Dan Persons narrowly avoid a sucker punch to the solar plexus as they dodge and feint their way through an examination of Zack Snyder's new CGI-laced fantasy action pic. Is Sucker Punch a female empowerment flick or another male fantasy about hot chicks in skirts wielding weapons? Is it an original vision for the 21st Century, or is it a rehash of a dozen other flicks (Brazil, Dragonslayer, The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari and Heavy Metal, to name a few)? Does Emily Browning have more than one expression, and is Scott Glenn ready to star in The Iggy Pop Story? These and other questions are asked, if not necessarily answered in this week's Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast.
