Directed by David Ayer

Compared to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), this is not half bad. All you have to do is remove the boring build up leading to the introduction of the squad, the not so interesting dialogues in-between events, the wasteful presence of Joker in the movie and lastly the weird dance called spell casting by the enchantress and you have something you can watch.

Arguably, what is left is nothing much.

In the post credit scene is what you will call an introduction to the coming of the Justice League, for me I think DC is rushing this, but we have to wait and see how it will turn out in the end.

The focus of this review is Suicide Squad a side step from the Justice League movie and as side stepping goes, this movie will not amount to much in the life of an avid movie watcher. It is on the borderline between an ok movie and a boring movie.
As listed above in the first paragraph, those were the reason this movie isn’t much of a grand movie to go rush and see, and my major turn off was how undramatic the summation of Jokers presence was in the movie. The writers had many ways they could have used him, but choose to focus on using him as a boring interlude to an already not so great movie.

Will Smith on the other hand did a good job, it has been a while since I have been impressed by Will Smith, and I have to say this time he did impress me. Margot Robbie too was an interesting character, her portrayal of Harley Quinn will stick out as one to beat, if the character is ever portrayed again. Margot pulled off the perfect insane lady that made you crave for her presence. The thought that she was almost out of the squad half way into the movie, made me sad for a second until series of unfortunate events led her back into the mix.

Suicide Squad is as the comic put them, a group of villains merged together by Amanda Waller to be used for good. The group consist of Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, El Diablo, Captain Boomerang guided by Flag (a special armed forces) and Katana.

They were gathered together to stop a raging magical being (s) who were on a quest of world domination.

For me Suicide Squad is a better step up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), but not as good a step up as I would expect and I do hope that the next set of DC planned movies would finally redeem the DC comic movie franchise.


  1. The only impressive actor to me was Joker. That sinister laugh (surounded by the knives)was unarguably one to beat. Cheers.
