Zack Snyder has given us 300, Watchmen and Suckerpunch.
Why is 300 brilliant and the other two merely entertaining ? 2 factors are in play. First, the storyline.Pedestrian. And as important, performance.More posing than acting.Of course ,just like Watchmen, Sucker Punch was visually stunning.But none of the characters were all that compelling.
Great popcorn movie, but nothing else.
300 was ground breaking and peerless. Like Orsen Wells, Snyder may have shot his wad on his first time out of the gate.
