Film Friday: Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad

Directed by: David Ayer

Staring: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie


The Breakdown: A secret government agency recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency (From IMDB)


My Review:
I understand why the critics are hating on this film, it doesn't take itself too seriously. It is set up almost like a comic book with its character introductions and over the top visual displays. It is mayhem and over the top and it is beyond fun. I loved Jared Leto's joker he left the seriousness of the Heath Ledger joker and was just all out crazy, I think he was a perfect blend of the Jack Nicholson Joker and Heath Ledger Joker and made it so much fun to watch. Don't even get me started on the laughs and fun that Harley and Deadshot brought to the film. Margot Robbie nailed it and gave us the messed up funny Harley Quinn that I have been longing for in the film world. It tied in the upcoming Justice League film without letting it over shadow the film. It was great to see Batman and I will say I do really enjoy Ben Affleck in the role. I really think David Ayer heard the classic "Why so serious?" and thought to himself "Never let's have fun with this and give the audience a few laughs." So don't take it so serious and just enjoy the mayhem.

    1. It is just one that you can't take seriously. You just have to enjoy it for what it is.
