Film Review: Suicide Squad

DIRECTOR: David Ayer STARRING: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, David Harbour, Robin Atkin Downes, Shailyn Pierre-Dixon, Jared Leto, James McGowan, Jim Parrack, Cara Delevingne, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Ezra Miller USA 2016


What a mess! David Ayer failed, the stellar cast was trapped in the dull and sloppy plot. Suicide Squad was freaking painful to watch and boring as hell, the whole movie editing is shameful.

You can’t introduce the characters for 30 damn minutes and spend the rest of the movie in fast-forward mode, with random dialogues and rushing everything to the end. Deadshot, El Diablo, Croc, Boomerang, Katana, Amanda Waller or even Rick Flag looked strong and promising at the beginning, but after those 30 minutes everything seems like a roller coaster of bad and sad mistakes.

The Joker character is not bad, it’s a different kind of Joker, but we’re not fully convinced by Jared Leto as The Joker, let’s see what the future holds for him. By the way, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn was awesome, erratic, fun and beautifully fucked-up. Everything we hoped for. Suicide Squad doesn’t deserve the hype.

Unfortunately, David Ayer was dead wrong for being too concerned with being politically correct and humane, this movie is sexist and lacks audacity, strong dialogues, good editing and a good soundtrack. What a mess!
