“You have all the weapons you need, now fight.“
Sounds familiar? Yeah, it’s from the Sucker Punch movie. Sucker Punch is about a young girl named Baby Doll, taken into a mental asylum by her greedy step-father. She meets these four other girls who share her interest in escaping the facility. Baby Doll told them that they can get out of that hell hole before she undergo Lobotomy (A form of surgery performed to psychiatric patients during the 50’s. It’s banned now due to human rights issues.). However, they must first find the 5 important elements that would set them free. These were the map, fire, knife, key and the last one is a mystery that is to be known eventually. Baby Doll realizes that the fifth element is actually for her to sacrifice herself so Sweet Pie (one of Baby Doll’s 4 co-inmates) ends up the only one to survive. Baby Doll went to undergo Lobotomy and it turns out that she actually got her freedom.
I’m gonna share to you a favorite part of mine in the movie.
The movie is actually getting bad reviews but I loved the movie. It speaks of the power of the human mind. It shows creativity in our struggle to survive our every day life. Not to mention that watching hot girls killing men in a very sadistic way was really awesome. HAHA.
I’m actually a huge fan of mind-boggling movies and movies about the human mind. Thus, I really liked this movie. Along with Inception, Beautiful Mind, Shutter Island, Silence of the Lambs, The Number 23, Adam, The Machinist and of course, Forrest Gump. I also love Veronika Decides to Die, a book by Paulo Coelho which also talks about mental illness. The Black Swan is also on my list of movies to watch.
So i’d like to leave you this favorite quote of mine from the movie.
“Who honors those we love for the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us. And at the same time, things that will never die. Who teaches us whats real, and how to laugh at lies. Who decides why we live, and what we’ll die to defend. Who trains us, and who holds the key to set us free. It’s you. You have all the weapons you need. Now fight!”
