SUCKER PUNCH

(Cinemax on Comcast) Zack ‘‘300’’ Snyder makes his bid to be seen as a showman-auteur with this joyless mash-up of all the fanboy flotsam in his head. A good cast is wasted in a multi-level action-fantasy narrative that plays like a video game remake of ‘‘Inception.’’ Starring Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, and Jena Malone as three of the oppressed, skimpily-attired power babes. (PG-13; runs through Oct. 18)

Ty Burr

UNKNOWN ½

(HBO on Comcast) A preposterous but fun mistaken-identity thriller with Liam Neeson as a doctor who awakens from a coma and discovers that no one knows who he is. This movie taps the same ludicrous action vein as Neeson’s thriller “Taken,” but it’s a good deal more visually coherent and less demanding on Neeson, his stunt doubles, and us. (PG-13; runs through Oct. 22)
