Suicide Squad: A Franchise That May As Well Die Out

Suicide Squad: A Franchise That May As Well Die Out

Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) can see that the times are changing with the arrival of Superman and the growing metahuman presence and realizes that there needs to be a contingency. Along with Col. Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), his girlfriend Dr. June Moone (Cara Delevingne), and her alter-ego, a primal ancient force that possesses her, Waller assembles Task Force X, a group of criminals designed to be sent into deadly situations where they’re very likely to die — a Suicide Squad, if you will. Her recruits are the deadly assassin Deadshot (Will Smith), psychotic clown lady Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), remorseful pyromancer El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), feral beast-man Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), and themed criminal Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney). When something apocalyptic bubbles up in Midway City, Waller sends them out under Flag’s supervision, putting bombs in their necks to make sure they stay on track and sending Katana (Karen Fukuhara) as Flag’s bodyguard. But their mission could get complicated as the Joker (Jared Leto) is planning a rescue of his beloved Harley and may throw a wrench in the grand design.

Suicidal Tendencies

By now you’ve seen the film and read the reviews. Suicide Squad is the worst film ever created, or it’s misunderstood and you’re a fan-boy of another superhero outlet. According to both sides they’re definitively right. Meanwhile no one is arguing over the quality of this film based on its own merit. There seems to be this axe to grind with liking or loathing Suicide Squad, and as a viewer who will always remain impartial it’s infuriating to see it for myself and discover that, lo and behold, both sides are more concerned with advancing their own agenda over simply critiquing the damn film.

My Review of Suicide Squad

My Review of Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad is directed by David Ayer and stars: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jared Leto and many more. It follows a team of villains who are forced to be part of a covert government task force named ‘Task Force X’, otherwise known as ‘Suicide Squad’. They are sent into Midway city to rescue a very important person from a so called ‘terrorist attack’ and then end up trying to save the world.

Suicide Squad
review

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad sports likeable elements and largely persuasive characterisation but is held back by disappointing execution. Writer/director David Ayer should be above this clumsily paced and poorly staged end product but everything here is just so rushed and slapped together with choppy editing compromising whatever momentum it seeks to garner. On the DC studios spectrum of things, there is so much concern with humour and fun and this film features a strong dose of these but fun and humor, a good film do not make.

Suicide Squad - Movie Review

Finally, this has been my most anticipated movie of the summer! It’s now out in theaters for everyone to see and judge for themselves. I say judge because for the past week, I’ve heard the terrible things the critics have been labeling this film as. I didn’t want my expectations to be swayed so I stayed off the dirt sheets and went in with just a simple, open mind. Without further ado, let’s break down the nitty gritty of Suicide Squad.

'Suicide Squad' Guides Warner Bros. to $1 Billion Milestone for the 16th Year Running

Suicide Squad made a significant splash over its opening weekend, which has ensured that Warner Bros. has broken the $1 billion mark for the year. — With its $135.1 million opening, Suicide Squad has helped Warner Bros. to the milestone, which it has maintained for 16 years straight at the domestic box office. 17 of the past 18 years, the studio has racked up $1 billion, making it an industry leader in the only business that counts - that being the one with the dollar sign at the front.

The squad arrives

The squad arrives

David Ayer and DC presents Suicide Squad. A secret government agency recruits some imprisoned meta humans to execute dangerous black ops missions. The first act of the movie was set up excatley to what our expectations were of the movie. Fast, unique and straight up crazy Guy Richie type fun. From the second act on, the movie shyed away from what it had going for it. The movie did have heart, which is something that DC lacks in it's movies. The use of the Joker was good. We have seen him many times before but never in a role where love and chaos where his main motivations. The Enchantress and Harley Quinn stole the movie in my opinion. All in all, I don't think that the Rotten Tomatoes score of 33% is correct. The movie was entertaining but not perfect. I give the movie three stars and would recommend others to watch this crazy, wacky family that is the Suicide Squad.

Suicide Squad (2016) Review

Through its middle stages, the next chapter in the DC Cinematic Universe came very close to collapsing in on itself. And while its plot is underwhelming, it takes a backseat to some of the best ensemble work you're likely to see in the genre. Warning, there are very mild spoilers below.

Dead on Arrival

Believe me, no one was rooting for this movie as much as I was. That first trailer was great, probably created more hype for DC than Batman vs Superman. All the pieces were there. A great action director in David Ayer, the man behind Fury, End of Watch, and Street Kings; a star studded cast including Will Smith, Jared Leto, and Margot Robbie; a goldmine source of the Suicide Squad, a covert team of Super Villains saving the day, and after the abject failure that was BvS, Suicide Squad was the movie that was supposed to save the day, and bring hope to the DCEU.........So what the hell happened?

Suicide Squad: How The Internet Is Taking These Early Reviews

The summer movie season is almost over! Believe me, I've tried my best to be optimistic about this year's summer movie line-up, but it's hard. Sure, we've had some decent summer movies, my personal favorites being Popstar: Never Stop Stopping, Finding Dory, and the recent tech-thriller Nerve. But besides those movies, this summer has been a total disappointing snooze fest.

DC vs Marvel; possible turn in the tide ahead.

Marvel and DC are two of the biggest competitors in comics, TV and most notably Cinema. Marvel have generally been at the top, with most of the recent success coming from their highly successful movie productions and the creation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). However, this striding giant of modern Cinema may be about to come across a reinvigorated competition.
