“Suicide Squad” FINALLY hits theatres tomorrow and it’s great. Ya, I said it… great.
Maybe that quote will end up in a TV commercial or on a poster because as far as I can tell I’m the only ‘reviewer’ giving it any love. David Ayer’s super villain team up is getting absolutely murdered by critics and it makes me furious. Are there problems with the movie? Sure there are, the plot is a little choppy and some of the fringe characters aren’t particularly well developed but lets be real THIS ISN’T ‘CITIZEN KANE’! and anyone expecting it to be is an idiot.
I don’t want to speak for anyone else but I know I’ve waited my entire life to see characters like Harley Quinn, Deadshot and Amanda Waller on the big screen and it actually happened! How do people react? Shit all over it. I just don’t get it.
‘Suicide Squad’ is just shy of 2 hours of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Diablo and the Joker blowing shit up. WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED? I saw it with an audience of Edge winners last night, Edge winners who audibly cheered and laughed throughout the flick. They enjoyed it. I enjoyed it. My friends enjoyed it. Are there problems with it? Sure but Jesus it’s a superhero popcorn movie. If this was the plot of a ‘Suicide Squad’ comic it would win awards.
Margot Robbie knocks it out of the park as Harley Quinn – “But Adam she’s all over the place, there’s no consistency in the character” GOOD! She’s playing a schizophrenic sociopath!
Deadshot is really different than he is in the comics.. but Will Smith is one of the biggest movie stars in the world for a reason and makes the character work.
Jared Leto’s take on Joker as a mob boss, ganster is so unique and VERY cool. It’s the first time we’ve ever seen The Joker and Harley share the live action screen together and it adds such a different twist to The Jokers motivations or lack there of. The chemistry between the two characters IS SEX.
Bringing it home.. if you want to watch Harley Quinn be hot AF (and she is.. so sooooo hot) and blow a bunch of stuff up with the help of The Joker, Deadshot and others.. see this movie. F the critics you’re perfectly capable of making up your own mind. Get some popcorn, shut off your brain and enjoy ‘Suicide Squad’.
