The Only Scene Worth Watching in Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch Was One They Cut

This week brings the latest Zack Snyder opus to the big screen, which led to the news that Snyder really wants to make Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead into a movie, which led all of us to talk about the last time Snyder put his id on rampant display: Sucker Punch.

It was briefly suggested that someone on the io9 staff should re-watch Sucker Punch this week, which was met with the kind of silence that also follows a teacher asking a question of a class of kids who have all failed to do the reading. I’ll leave it to all of you to guess who eventually responded, “I would watch 20 Michael Bay Transformers movies before sitting through Sucker Punch again.”


Anyway, it turned out that there are people who haven’t seen the deleted musical number, which is the best thing to come out of Sucker Punch. In the theatrical release, “Love Is the Drug” was chopped up and played with the end credits. But the original scene, where Carla Gugino and Oscar Isaac sing and dance, is just pure fun. (Especially when you don’t have to watch the whole rest of the movie.)
