The worst villains on the planet all assembled into one team as Suicide Squad arrives in theaters this week.
I want to preface this review by saying, I’m not a comic book fan and haven’t read any of the DC Comics that go along with the series.
Suicide Squad is the third installment in the DC Extended Universe. That being said, I am a movie fan, so this review will be purely based off of the movie itself, and not how well the movie is adapted from the comic books.
The premise of the movie holds promise; assemble the worst villains on the planet into one team, to fight anything human, or metahuman that might threaten mankind.
Overall Suicide Squad did entertain for most of its two hours and two minutes run time.
The good: Margot Robbie, Will Smith, the soundtrack, Jared Leto and Viola Davis.
The bad: Poor plot, dumbed down for PG-13 audiences, left a lot to be desired, CGI zombie blobs and the ending.
The film wasn’t the worst, but it could have been so much better. Will it do well at the box office? Only time will tell. I believe critics are being harder on the movie than the word-of-mouth folks will be.
