A young girl is institutionalized by her abusive stepfather in an asylum for the mentally insane. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her and others to escape from the abusive regime at the mental facility.
This is a 2 STAR movie except for 3 scenes which I will briefly describe
1. An encounter with several 30ft demon samurai in a snow covered castle, did I mention the RPG and chain gun.
2. WW1 trench fighting with german clockwork and steam reanimated zombies, Zeppelins and aircraft.
3. A scene with orcs in a castle and empire knights besieging said castle but the fire breathing dragon chasing a WW2 B-25 bomber is quite entertaining.
The girls are quite proficent with their modern firearms, close combat weapons and walkers/helicopters and the CGI is quite good.
The movie overall is grim and sad but when the main character does her dance as a lady of negotiable virtue for real world people in the asylum (the place is really bloody grim) they transfer to the alternate world and this mimics in fantastic detail what they are doing in the real world. The ending is quite easy to see coming and does nothing for your impression of the movie.
When she travels to the alternate worlds it's not too bad a ride, she is accompanied by 4 fellow inmates who want to escape also I would watch the movie again but just for the above scenes.
Some of the girls aren't too hard on the eyes and Scott Glenn tags along aswell with the team.
