Film Review: Suicide Squad

I re-watched this movie again and had a better opinion on this movie than I did the first time I saw it. The movie wasn’t still that good as I hoped it would be.

The story as it goes in the comics. In the comics Amanda Waller assembles a team of criminals who would go on missions that where considered suicidal. They planted little bombs inside there heads so, if they try to escape there heads would be blown right off.

I thought the costumes where great. It made every one look very flashy and cool. It definitely deserved a Oscar for the costumes.

The main thing i didn’t like was the Jokers and Harley Quinn’ s relationship. The Joker doesn’t actually love Harley. It was a perfect example of a abusive relationship. But of course they had to take that away. It just didn’t make any sense to me. I also didn’t like the Joker himself. He just didn’t seem to crazy for the big screen. If you look at the Joker in the comics he has style If you look at the Joker in Suicide Squad he is barely wearing a shirt and has tattoos all over him

Then there where other characters that i thought didn’t do anything major. For example Captain Boomerang. I thought he was a funny character to the squad. He just didn’t do anything cool that effected the mission in any way.

One thing i liked about it was that it set up a bunch of more movies. I think DC is going to use Suicide Squad to introduce more villains. Maybe something like another villain hires Deadshot to kill someone and big shocker its Gorilla Grod.

One thing that i didn’t like was that it just was simply too long. I thought it could’ve been shorter. They also tried to do flashbacks like Deadpool did. That didn’t turn out good for them because the flashbacks didn’t make sense. Another complaint was of course dialog that some people couldn’t understand but I understood it fine.

Even thought I watched Suicide Squad again I was still a little lost. If you like action movies then you should probably go see it.

One thought on “Film Review: Suicide Squad

  1. I agree Suicide definitely had its faults. However, I would disagree on Harley and Joker’s relationship being not all that great in the movie. Yes it is abusive, but is very similar and staying true to the message in the DC comics/other media they have been portrayed in, and at least Harley’s actress definitely portrayed that well. I also believe that as a person watching Suicide Squad without knowing the DC universe their relationship mirrored what it means to be a villain in the DC universe, and I found that part the most well done out of the movie besides Harley by herself.
