Simply Not That Interesting

Is this movie terrible? Absolutely not

Is this movie great? Absolutely not.

I always heard from people that they either HATED or LOVED this movie. And for me it was neither.

The audience for this film is served with a classic action movie/comic book. "The world is in danger! There must be a solution! Although there are bumps between the characters along the way, eventually, we'll solve the problem"

The interesting twist is *supposed* to be that instead of classic superheroes, we have bad guys. To that I say "so what?". The movie didn't really establish why I should care about much of what was going on on screen—it was all just classic popcorn movie action and sequences that were occasionally broken up by half-attempts at character development.

An overly hyped film and a very unfortunate disappointment

Suicide Squad was a disappointment to me. May be I got hooked on the hype or was expecting too much from WB. This movie had a great concept that we saw on the small screen, both TV series and animated. For some reason, those formats did it better than this theatrical release.

This movie suffered from all fronts, poor writing which is the number one problem for me. The story was just all over the place with such in coherency, it's visible at every point. Not enough time was spent in developing these characters for their introduction to the big stage. Poor dialogue was another major problem which is just so stupid at some points.

But Suicide Squad still could have been saved with the main plot and a great villain. Sadly that too was a major problem. The main plot didn't make sense because the movie itself went in so many directions that none of it could have come together and gel.The villain was a total failure. Nothing about this person was intriguing and just falls so flat. Story and main purpose was so awful for a big summer blockbuster.

This movie probably only had about two things going for it. Majority of the casting was great including Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jared Leto, and Jai Courtney. Yes Jai Courtney, I'm shocked too. I really think his role should have been expanded. Notable miscast would be Joel Kinnaman and Cara Delevingne. Joel Kinnaman portrayal of Rick Flag was out of touch of what that character should be and for Enchantress, someone, more older with more acting depth should have been chosen over Cara Delevingne.

The other thing would be, through and through it's a much better movie than Batman V Superman. I know that's not really helping but still. A weak six stars and a onetime watch.

A very poor attempt in making a Suicide Squad film

WARNING: *MILD SPOILERS*

To prepare for The Suicide Squad, I decided to rewatch the 2016 Suicide Squad and it was even more painful than last time.

Suicide Squad is about a group of imprisoned supervillains that are recruited by a secret government agency in order to save the world from a dangerous threat.

The DCEU have been really struggling and when Suicide Squad was slated to come out, a part of me was excited to see something different from the studio. However, before the 2017 Justice League film came out, I considered this to be the worst DCEU so far. The story has potential but the way it was told was so amateur. The script is one of the worst. It's filled with expository dialogue, that fails to flesh out characters properly, and jokes that do not work at the slightest. For a film with such a colourful poster, why does it look so ugly? Most of the film takes place at night and doesn't even look lit properly, the action is also incredibly dull with the final fight being so poorly shot and lit that I didn't know what was happening and the build-up to these events were so boring that I nearly fell asleep. The editing is some of the worst I've seen with scenes coming and going with no real structure and sometimes it would cut to these vibrant colours that felt so jarring due to the ugliness of the rest of the film. The soundtrack is filled with well known pop songs but they don't fit the scenes they're playing over. It's trying to be edgy but none of it feels coherent.

The film introduces all the characters and gives plenty of time to explain the backstory behind Deadshot and Harley Quinn whereas the rest (Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and El Diablo) get barely a minute. None of these characters are given proper character development and there's only one scene where the film tries to have these characters bond but it completely fails as it made me feel nothing. We also get introduced to another character named Katana halfway through the film. Not only is her introduction purely expository but her character is given nothing to do. Then we have The Joker, which may be the worst part of the film. Jared Leto isn't completely at fault since the script is terrible but his portrayal is still laughably bad. Margot Robbie is perfect for Harley Quinn and I love her in the role but she's given some of the most cringey lines. The villain isn't given anything to work and so her character is very bland. Viola Davis and Joel Kinnaman try their best and Will Smith essentially plays himself.

Suicide Squad is one of the worst comic book films I've seen. It's trying to be so many things but it just comes across messy and dull. With poorly developed characters, an awful script and boring story, I wouldn't recommend anyone see Suicide Squad.
