But I think that's a mistake. So that has something to do with the title, too. Andrew O'Hehir, writing in Salon , sees the film's title as its essential theme: . If you want to understand Snyder's central narrative gambit, it's right there in the title. He gives us what we want or what we think we want, or what he thinks we think we want : Absurdly fetishized women in teeny little skirts, gloriously repetitious fight sequences loaded with plot coupons, pseudo-feminist fantasies of escape and revenge.
Then he yanks it all back and stabs us through the eyeball. Snyder has stated one interpretation of the film is that it is a critique of geek culture 's sexism and objectification of women.

Sucker Punch was negatively reviewed by most film critics. Although Snyder had claimed that he wanted the film to "be a cool story and not just like a video game where you're just loose and going nuts",  some critics compared the film unfavorably to a video game in their reviews.
Club ' s Nathan Rabin wrote, "with its quests to retrieve magical totems, clearly demarcated levels, and non-stop action, Snyder's clattering concoction sometimes feels less like a movie than an extended, elaborate trailer for its redundant videogame adaptation. British film critic Mark Kermode described the film as "the most boring, ploddingly put together, infantile, crass, adolescent, stupid, chauvinistic twaddle that I've sat through in a very, very long time.
Legendary Pictures reportedly attributed the movie's failure to become a box office hit to movie audiences not accepting a female action hero.

Writing in a separate piece for The A. Club months after giving the film a "C-" grade, Nathan Rabin concluded, "Depending on whom you ask, Snyder set out to make either the ultimate sexist masturbatory fanboy fantasy or the ultimate critique of sexist masturbatory fanboy fantasies.
He failed spectacularly on both counts, but in true Fiasco form, there's something fascinating and even strangely majestic about that failure. Scott Mendelsohn of The Huffington Post called the film a "bitterly sad and angrily feminist mini-epic", and said that while it presents scenes of "matter-of-fact lechery from men towards women that is an accepted norm in our society, both then and now", it "earns kudos for daring to actually be about something relevant and interesting.
It is actually very much about the sexualization of women in popular culture, rather than just using those tools to make pointless exploitation fare. Bromley further judged that the film is "about fighting a losing battle. About using every tool at your disposal, be it sexuality or physical strength or wit or the ability to band together to fight a common enemy—the tool of Sisterhood—and about how that still isn't enough.
