While disappointing, still a good experience

If anything, the marketing team for “Suicide Squad” did their job well. Following the critical backlash against “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the second trailer for David Ayer’s supervillain team-up showcased a more light-hearted tone than that of last spring’s Comic Con teaser, and all of the following trailers and TV spots were edited to near perfection. The hype was real. The stakes were high. But how did it measure up?

The characters and the talent behind them are the driving force behind “Suicide Squad.” DC could not have made a better casting decision than Will Smith as Deadshot, and Margot Robbie was nowhere to be found in this movie: there was only Harley Quinn. And where there is Harley Quinn, there will always be the Joker.

All of the film’s promotional material po...

Watch 'Batman: Assault on Arkham' Instead

'Suicide Squad' continues the lackluster performance of this new DC universe of films. I was vastly disappointed in 'Batman v. Superman' earlier this year, but was holding out hope for 'Suicide Squad'. Sadly, it too let me down. First off, I'm very familiar with these villains. Some within the group are among my favorite Batman adversaries. Second, I LOVE the concept. It's like a weird spin on 'The Dirty Dozen'. These two areas held strong for most of the film. The vastly talented ensemble work well together and conceptualize everything I previously liked about these characters. It truly feels as if they've come to life right off the page. There are sporadic moments of genuine fun, as well as some good humor sprinkled in (sparsely). It moves along quickly and rarely becomes dul...

Suicide Squad - way better than RT suggested...

Suicide Squad is not the giant leap in the right direction I was hoping for with the DCEU's future. However it is a small step and certainly a far more enjoyable experience than BVS. Suicide Squad succeeds as an entertaining popcorn flick with a great cast, an offbeat sense of humor, and an embrace of its comic book origins.
Director David Ayer's flair for a grungy and dirty aesthetic surprisingly enough complements the strange and sometimes absurd comic book universe that WB is trying to establish for their DC film releases. And I'll be darned if it still has a sense of not just fun but humor as well. Remember when DC movies were allowed to have their characters crack a smile or tell a one-liner?
The single best aspect of Suicide Squad is the cast. Will Smith is great as the assassi...

These Villains Can't Save the DC Slump

Suicide Squad isn't a bad movie - but it can't settle on anything. It's like you give a kid with ADD a bunch of meth and double espressos just to see what he can come up with. The result is a film that is all over the place and despite some stand-out performances (and a pretty good soundtrack), can never find its footing.

We all know this set-up, the most villainous villains around are rounded up for a secret task force to take on "meta-humans" (aka Superman gone bad), some of whom have powers themselves. Luckily this task force is headed up by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), who, in my humble opinion, is more bad-ass and scary than any of the villains she recruits. On her side is super-soldier Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) and his girlfriend June Moone (Cara Delevingne) who also ha...

Suicide Squad - Movie Review

DC, are you trying to f**k up on purpose? Seriously! What the hell is going on over there. "Suicide Squad" was your chance to redeem yourself from the last critical failures. This movie should have been the one that saved DC and get it back on it's feet, but I guess not. I wanted this to be good or at least surprise me. There are some pros and plenty of cons in this. So lets kick it off.

Will Smith and Viola Davis are easily the best parts of this movie. Smith brings the humility to his character and Davis brings the fear. Will Smith is the only character in this group that has any characterization as we get to know more about his past. Will Smith is basically playing Will Smith, but he was still good as the character. To be honest, I thought Voila Davis was more of a real ...

Why you should NOT go see Suicide Squad:

Okay fine, if you liked the movie I respect your opinion. But I downright thought this movie was absolute trash. Not only that, it was insulting to see such a undeniable mess of GREAT characters (from DC source material) put to waste on the screen. Surprisingly, the scariest part about the whole existence of the movie Suicide Squad is not that it is a BAD movie (it was definitely bad though), but that many fans have began to develop this strange mindset that since critics are mostly appalled by DC movies in the recent past, the rest of us have to defend and rebel against these critics saying the movie was great, to which I'd say, "Get your mind out of the gutter!" Remember back in, I don't know, 2008 when Christopher Nolan gave us the most spectacularly exciting DC movie ever? T...
