Feminism is what the movie preaches. It had in its own way merged an all-female lead into a movie that lacks good writing but wonderful cinematography.

This movie is a drunk’s adaptation of Inception, and as lame as script was they found a way to keep you watching. You will love the mixture of the modern, technology mixed with World War 2 battle ground.

Kudos to the costumes designer and the settings were well designed, with a cinematography that was off the charts.

The director Zack Snyder probably gets his dream fulfilled by just letting his imagination run wild in this loud, incoherent action/sci-fi/thriller mix-up.

Emily Browning plays a young girl Babydoll, who is wrongly committed to a mental institution when her father tries to kill her and her mother so as to inherit the mother’s fortune.

There in the institution (which is an underground brothel in Babydoll’s dream world. The viewer have to determine which world you’re watching the movie from, because it goes deeper from one dream world to another) she’s given instructions on what is expected of her and that allows her to function in a dream world in which warrior-like fantasies could aid in her escape.

Like you are playing a video game where you lead the heroine to face all sorts of dangers from samurai robots, zombie German soldiers and the mafia with a team of scantily clad girls which I will like to mention are either figments of her imagination or not.

As you continue watching, the movie starts to take a life of its own and goes overboard and at the end it all seems senseless, stupid and unsatisfying.

I actually felt Emily should have been taught to dance the whole swaying back and forth and then fading into her dreamland was a way the producers hide her dance inexperience.

When I think about Emily I remember the cute girl from the movie, Series of unfortunate events, but as we can see that girl has grown.

Other than the lack of interest the movie presents, forget the fact that you see sexy girls, nothing good came from that either.

The movie lacked foundation tossing you here and there, making you feel this movie could be better.
Forget the huge budget, and the 12 week of training the cast went through to master martial arts, all through the movie you will see it but it was not enough to save the movie.
