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. Tal vez estoy malcriado por los detallados artbooks sobre videojeug ...more

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

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!

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

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. As a huge fan of the visual development and fashion in films and games (not to mention as a visual development artist). I was desperate to get my hands on this book, consumed with desire to see more

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.

“Everyone has an angel, a guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day old man, next day little girl. But don't let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they are not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from a hearth. Reminding that it's us... it's everyone of us who holds the power of the worlds we create.” 18 likes
“We can deny angels exist, convince ourselves they can't be real. But they show up anyway, at strange places and at strange times. They can speak through any character we can imagine. They'll shout through demons if they have to. Daring us, challenging us to fight.” 6 likes
