Right? I passed on seeing this in the theater because of how bad it got panned- none of my friends who saw it liked it at all. Then when I finally caught the blu-ray, I was blown away. There's one deleted scene in the blu-ray that totally explains the ending- it was a travesty the studio pulled it for the theatrical release.

I think marketing tricked a bunch of fanboys looking for scantily clad chicks kicking butt (which the film provides in spades), but like you said- the story was pretty creative and caught those viewers off guard. It was Zak Snyder's "sucker punch" to those expecting a vapid candy show. Everyone whines about Hollywood retreading ideas and storylines- Snyder creates something original and the same people get mad because it doesn't fit into a traditional narrative. And kudos to the actresses learning how to handle their weapons- I totally bought the action (the German trench warfare scene was insane).

And yeah, the soundtrack is amazing. Loved Bjork over the samurai sequence.
