Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder and the hiding-of-sorts of SUCKER PUNCH from reviewers--even fanboys.

Here's an early review of un film de Zack Snyder (300, WATCHMEN) SUCKER PUNCH:

Actually liked Snyder's Canadian redo of George Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD.

I missed 300 in theaters--fell asleep in a hotel room when watching the edited-for-TNT version.

WATCHMEN was a combination of brilliant and what-the-heck-was-that moments.

Didn't bother with the CGI owl cartoon.

SUCKER PUNCH no doubt will have the caffeine-for-the-eyes visuals and bam-bam-bam violence (within PG-13 limitations) of Snyder's earlier work.

But it gives one pause when the reviewer linked to above resorts to the "turn your brain off" cliche--which sounds like a bit of punch-pulling to keep from losing access to future WB cinematic amusement park rides.

UPDATE 3/24/11: The reviews are now flooding in:
And here's Jeffrey Wells' I-REALLY-didn't-like-this take on the film:
