Watch The First 5 Minutes Of Sucker Punch

Maybe you read all the bad reviews of Sucker Punch and then the massive outpouring of support for it from the handful of fans that followed. That probably left you pretty confused about whether it’s worth your time, so here’s something to help you decide.

Warner Bros. has released the entire first five minutes of Sucker Punch online. Unfortunately, that first five minutes doesn’t contain any of the robots and samurai swords and stuff you probably saw in the trailers. This is just the set up, where a girl tries to get her sister out of a bad situation, and ends up being committed to an insane asylum. Don’t worry, they randomly throw in a few dragons and stuff at the end out of order, just to keep you interested.

Here’s a quick warning from someone who’s seen Sucker Punch to those of you who haven’t: The five minutes you just watched isn’t really indicative of anything that takes place in the rest of the movie. This is pretty much the last time you’ll see that grim, dark, real world. Right after this five minutes ends, Sucker Punch turns into a sex and nudity free Bordello and then the robots start. They don’t stop until the film’s last two minutes. At least now you know how it gets there, sort of.
