Yes, you will be unprepared... about how terrible this movie is. No stars- see anything else.
sucker punch (suk’r puh-nch) v. 1. A blow or assault made without warning. 2. A harmful act that comes as a surprise and without provocation. 3. A bitch move.
Oddly enough, this aptly describes the experience of watching Sucker Punch. Who would have thought that the film’s title was more of a summation of the how one was going to feel over the course of 109 minutes?
It may not be a traditional monster movie, but that is its greatest attribute. "Monsters" is thoughtful, human and beautiful: 3.5/4
Monsters is something of a marvel in filmmaking and genre. Filmmaker Gareth Edwards shot the film with a shoestring budget and a cinema verite approach, which bleeds into the film’s overall style of subtly over spectacle. Subtly may be something of a blasphemous attribute in regards to the monster move genre, but then again, Monsters greatest strength lies in its very human story.
