From Roger Ebert’s review of Your Highness:
From Michael Phillips’ review of Sucker Punch:
The film abdicates so many basic responsibilities of coherent storytelling, even coherent stupid-action-movie storytelling, director/co-writer/co-producer Zack Snyder must have known in preproduction that his greasy collection of near-rape fantasies and violent revenge scenarios disguised as a female-empowerment fairy tale wasn’t going to satisfy anyone but himself. Well, himself, plus ardent fans of Japanese-schoolgirl manga comics.
Hopefully this doesn’t reveal their distaste for anime as much as their perception of anime and manga fans, but you can never be sure. What gives, Roger?
