... she fantasizes an adventure in feudal Japan, where she meets the Wise Man (Scott Glenn), who tells her that she can escape if she collects five items: a map, fire, a knife, a key and a fifth, unrevealed item that would require "great sacrifice".

He gives her a sword and a gun, instructing her to fight three demon samurai, which she defeats. -per wikipedia

Sucker Punch: The Art of the Movie
by Zack Snyder

Description from the amazon:
From Zack Snyder, the director of 300 and Watchmen, comes Sucker Punch; an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of Babydoll - a young girl, whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality.

Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, but her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary…with potentially tragic consequences.

In this official book, Snyder guides you through the many amazing worlds and characters of the film, with eye-popping production art and stunning photographs by Clay Enos (Watchmen: Portraits).

  3. Have to check the book out.
    You know me and downloading... I got the movie and am going to burn it to disc. It looks phenomenal, but will let you know if you haven't seen it yet.

  6. It looks so pretty but I've read such bad reviews -- I'll probably wait until it's on DVD. Still - it looks pretty!

  7. I went opening weekend and not gonna lie... it wasn't very good. Beautiful visually, interesting conceptually, awesome costuming and make-up, the fights were kick-ass... the story... absolutely lacking. I have to agree with the reviewer who said it was like watching an extremely high-budget music video because that is a really accurate description. One of my guy friends said he thought it was like being trapped inside the mind of a 16-year-old girl. lol Not quite sure I agree 100% on that but it's another way to describe it that's pretty fair.

    Am I still gonna buy it on Bluray? Heck yes!
