In this mind-warping action thriller, Baby Doll (Emily Browning), a girl slated for lobotomy in a 1950s-era asylum, leads a group of young female inmates in an attempt to escape both their mental fantasy worlds and the actual institution where they are prisoners. To accomplish her plan, Baby Doll must steal five objects -- but is the man who's trying to stop her real, or a figment of her imagination? Zack Snyder (Watchmen) directs.

It's a mixed bag - good beginning and end with a rather repetitive middle. Starts with some good mind-bending dream world scenes - far better than Inception. They didn't really need to spell out the five items so clearly, but that's a minor issue.

The first fight was awesome - unfortunately the next four didn't compare. It would have been better if the later fights weren't all about guns - or were filmed in a way that made it seem like the shooting was more deliberate. I think it also reduces the tension in a fight when the camera is flipping between five girls, rather than focusing on one girl and her opponent.

They also should have consistently increased the pace of the fights - rather than keeping each approximately the same length throughout the film. It did have a good sound track and decent ending though.
