“Sucker Punch will speak to the disenfranchised girls, the girls who feel weird or ugly, the girls who are finally being able to admit that they like video games and action movies as much as their brothers and boyfriends. It tells them that the sexy, empowered image of the female geek is great but that the real strength doesn’t come from a cosplay outfit showing off a tight midsection or a cavern of cleavage (although it doesn’t dismiss that either) – it tells them that in the end the strength of women comes not from dancing alone and using sexuality but from standing together and using sisterhood. It’s almost cliche, but the best cliches are truths, and the truth here is that while shaking your ass will get you so far, the only way to truly escape the oppression of the man is to be there for each other.” —
Whether Sucker Punch holds up to the mixed praise Faraci bestows upon it or not, there’s something about the way Faraci throws his words together that makes me want to read his every review.
