Despite being both a critical and box office disappointment, Sucker Punch is without doubt a visually stunning movie that perfectly showcases director Zack Snyder's vivid imagination and understanding of the dynamics of fight choreography. To promote the release of Sucker Punch on DVD and Blu-ray yesterday, Warner Bros. released, via MTV, a clip from one of the Blu-ray edition's many special features.
In the clip, Snyder reveals some of the finer details hidden in the epic "Samurai Showdown" fight scene between Babydoll (Emily Browning) and the 10-foot-tall cyborg Samurai warrior she encounters when she first arrives in the fantasy world she's created to escape her real-world hell. Snyder also explains how the live-action Babydoll and CG-Babydoll were melded together to create a fluid fight sequence free of needless cuts.
Sucker Punch also stars Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm, Oscar Isaac, and Scott Glenn. The movie was written by Snyder and Steve Shibuya.
