Suicide Squad

What the heck is this film all about? This is a superhero film?? What a load of messy crap and this pile of garbage made almost $750 million at the box office?? What? Suicide Squad is the third installment in the DC Extended Universe. The film is written and directed by David Ayer and stars an ensemble cast featuring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne. Ben Affleck and Ezra Miller have cameos as Batman & The Flash.

Amanda Waller, who leads a secret government organization called A.R.G.U.S. and in the aftermath of Superman’s death (as shown in Batman vs Superman : Dawn of Justice) assembles Task Force X, a team of dangerous criminals imprisoned at Belle Reve Prison consisting of elite hitman Deadshot, former psychiatrist and the Joker’s lover Harley Quinn, pyrokinetic ex-gangster El Diablo, opportunistic thief Captain Boomerang, genetic mutation Killer Croc, and specialized assassin Slipknot. hey are placed under command of Colonel Rick Flag to be used as disposable assets in high-risk missions for the United States government. Another possible recruit is Flag’s lover  Dr. June Moone, an archaeologist possessed by a witch-goddess known as the “Enchantress”. Tatsu Yamashiro / Katana an expert martial artist and swordswoman, who is assigned to Flag also volunteers for the missions.

Needless to say Enchantress breaks loose and converts a bunch of people in a subway into a horde of monsters, and summons her brother to assist, her deciding to eradicate humankind with a mystical weapon for Waller imprisoning her. Waller sends the squad to the area informing everyone except Flag and the soldiers that it is a terrorist attack. What happens next is a bunch of confusion, loud explosions and shouting and a bunch of things that I did not find interesting at all. The directing is bad, the characters are terrible (Harley Quinn is the only exception and Margot Robbie did a find job in her role as the nutty lady) and the film is actually boring. The redeeming of a remorseful character is usually something that can make a movie, give it an emotional edge but in the death of El Diablo embraces his abilities and manages to distract Incubus long enough for the bomb to detonate underneath, killing them both.

The movie is a success but whyyyyyy? What is supposed to be so good about the movie? Nothing much. Even Jared Leto as the Joker is wasted in it and hopefully he and Robbie will get to show up in more DCEU films. The rests can go to hell as far as I am concerned. 5 outta 10!
