    I totally forgot I had This book . Although from watching the film as a woman the feminist themes are present although not in the most obvious ways. I feel reading this book opened my eyes a little more to the details I didn’t see , I can see why the film is so misunderstood by critics. But I will never understand why the audience didn’t explain the true meaning of the film to critics.

Although from watching the film as a woman the feminist themes are present although not in the most obvious ways. I feel reading this book opened my eyes a little more to the details I didn’t see , I can see why the film is so misunderstood by critics. But I will never understand why the audience didn’t explain the true meaning of the film to critics. Having ventured into the films knowledge from the directors point of view I can see what the films ending truly stands for , Baby doll is not the main character,Sweetpea is. This can be understood from the opening narrated by sweetpea herself claiming “everybody has an angel, they show up at strange places and at strange times, challenging us daring us to fight” . This being a literal metaphor for the strength she possess in being able to create this world in her head , one where the person she wishes to become (Babydoll) saves her from the situation she is in. This is what I feel in terms of the feminist aspects of the film was done very well, however the delivery is quite wobbly unless you see the film itself as real time and events which it isn’t . Everything ultimately is in Sweetpeas head, she wishes she was Babydoll but she isn’t , yet in her mind she is and this is what sets her free I knowing she can be as strong as her because they are one in the same . In conclusion Zack Snyder must be greatly respectful of feminist culture in making the film revolve around strong, sexy and stylish women whom both support and escape through one another .

    Si te gustan las chicas, y más las chicas anime, el libro te encantará. Para mi gusto, no hay mucho. Estuvo bien. Geniales fotos y en mi caso solo encontré de nuevo los bocetos de los zombi nazi, los soldados, los prototipos del tanque conejo y sobre todo que la katana de Babydoll tiene toda la historia contada en el tatuaje o grabado que recorre la espada. Sí está genial, pero como pasa con los libros de arte, las explicaciones son muy obvias o muy cortas.

    A nivel de disfrutar el maravilloso trabajo de arte y diseños de esta (tristemente mediocre) película, no podría estar mas complacido, pues analizan al detalle cada elemento visual, mostrando incluso versiones rechazadas y bocetos asi como poder analizar detalles y guiños que en la película poco se notan. Pero me decepciono no encontrar con un mayor análisis de la trama, sobre todo de una película con tanto simbolismo como esta.

    Little disappointing. For a film that's chock full of creative art direction, the book lacks a display and insoght of the development. Still some great pieces though. Little disappointing.

    (More pictures at parkablogs.com) This art book is way thicker than I expected. It's 256 pages in a wide format hardcover. Nice. Zack Synder's previous films (300, Watchmen, Legend of the Guardian) have a thing for CGI and Sucker Punch is not exception. This art book (and film) is like a pop culture hurricane. There girls with guns and blades, robots, orcs, castles, machine gun welding giant samurais, dragons, zombies, orcs, castles, theater and brothel. All these are from the vivid imagination (More pictures at parkablogs.com) This art book is way thicker than I expected. It's 256 pages in a wide format hardcover. Nice. Zack Synder's previous films (300, Watchmen, Legend of the Guardian) have a thing for CGI and Sucker Punch is not exception. This art book (and film) is like a pop culture hurricane. There girls with guns and blades, robots, orcs, castles, machine gun welding giant samurais, dragons, zombies, orcs, castles, theater and brothel. All these are from the vivid imagination of the lead, Babydoll. The visuals in the book is a mixture of photos and art. There aren't much character art for the girls with the exception for Babydoll which has more (but in manga style). The art is various (few) alternate costumes. What you have is lots of stunning photography that ranges from the I'm-cute-and-I'm-in-an-asylum look to the I'm-going-to-kill-you-with-my-gun-and-dark-eye-shadows portraits. I like the idea large two-page portrait but unfortunately the photos aren't sharp enough at that size. There are more art for other characters, such as the awesome samurai who likes big guns, Meka (yes, a mecha), soldiers, knights, a generic looking dragon, robots, zombies and orcs who look like cousins from their LOTR counterpart. Other art includes the sets like the castle, the mental institution, cathedral, city and Japanese temple. There are also miscellaneous stuff like the flying bomber and weapons (few). Most of the art looks digitally created. Commentary is rather sparse other than the captions. Zack Synder seems to be the author. It would be better if there were more insights on the art which is what is lacking. Overall, the book is a very decent art companion and is well worth the price.

    This is a gem! I just rewatched the movie and looked at this book for the first time and it's just everything you can want from such a book. Just beautiful! This is a gem!

    As one of the rare avid fans of this film, I was excited to get my hands on a book where art & production design took such a prominent role in the telling of a story. What I found is that this book is... fine. It is page to page art, but the text is geared more towards "selling" you on what's going on then giving any real insight. Nothing bad, just not what I'm looking for. I was not a fan of the way this film was advertised, especially in print where as it seeks the idea of a pinup girl fest wher As one of the rare avid fans of this film, I was excited to get my hands on a book where art & production design took such a prominent role in the telling of a story.

Nothing bad, just not what I'm looking for. I was not a fan of the way this film was advertised, especially in print where as it seeks the idea of a pinup girl fest whereas the film has a deeper emotional and abstract depth. There was criticism calling the film "exploitive" but actually watching the film can see that the the visuals are both a veil and a backdrop for the drama playing out and the "sexiness" involved is played out as a woman's power fantasy(which is VERY different then a man's sexual fantasy). There are no walking shots of any girls' backside. there are no lingering cleavage shots aiming at titillation. It is the The marketing pieces displayed in the book reminded me why people might assume otherwise. Don't get me wrong, it's an "Art of..." book and there is plenty of beautiful art so it delivers on it's promise, it just feels more like a film "companion" than an insightful piece. I prefer the latter. Put simply - do I regret the purchase? No - it's good, just not my favorite.

    LET DOWN This book is a joke. Most of the images are screen-caps of the film and very amateur-looking fan art, NOT development art. I repeat, practically zero concept art! Confession time: I loved the film. Yes, the film is flawed, but I loved it anyway. It has heart, fun, and I respect its ambitions.

I was desperate to get my hands on this book, consumed with desire to see more of the great genre-inspired designs and development from the film, the behind-the-scenes type of concept work. *sigh* Oh naive me. Instead of showcasing a few of the thousand sketches, characters, costumes, monsters, machines, or environments that surely went into making the film, the book completely cops out and drops worthy artwork sparsely throughout pages that read no better than a coloring-book-style summary of the plot and characters. Sadly, it was a huge let down and an absolute waste of money.

    This is a great coffee table book if you loved the visual dynamics of the movie. It has some information but mostly it's just photos, posters and artwork.
