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 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...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...more

“And finally this question

The mystery of whose story it
will be.

Of who draws the curtain.

Who is it that chooses our steps
in the dance?

Who drives us mad?

Lashes us with whips
and crowning us
with victory when we
survive the impossible?

Who is it... that does all these things?

Who honors those we love for the
very life we live?

Who sends monsters to kill us, and
at the same time sings that we'll
never die?

Who teaches us what's real and how to
laugh at lies?

Who decides why we live and what we'll die to defend?

Who chains us and who holds the key that can set us free?

It's you...

You have all the weapons you need...

Now fight!”
“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.” 12 likes
