Suicide Squad — Entertaining super hero movie but nothing more — 7*/10

  • Overall: It's enjoyable, it's funny, but it's not satisfying. They had something great and they messed it up.
  • Who is it for? Super hero fans or those in need of an action fix.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Known actors: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis and Jared Leto.
  • Cameos: Ben Affleck.
  • Style: Super hero action flick.
  • Intro: Felt too rushed.
  • Story: Very simple. If it wasn't for all the trimmings, it would have been boring, because a few scenes even fall totally flat. That being said, lots of good character moments and great action.
  • Ending: Some things are really cool, while others really aren't.
  • Epilogue: Nice. Predictable, though.
  • Dialogs: Funny, but some bits aren't really audible.
  • Characters: I love Harley Quinn and that version of the Joker is pretty good too, even if it's not the best one. Worst one is the Australian. How boring is he? Deadshot, not sure about him. Maybe too good to be bad. Diablo? Very surprising! Bad guy? Uninteresting and visually weak. Bad girl? Interesting in the first half, but pretty boring in the last half.
  • Acting: Good, except for Flag who didn't even make par.
  • Visuals: Astounding. 3D totally NOT worth it, but didn't interfere with the experience.
  • Special Effects: Solid.
  • Costumes: Love them!
  • Sound: IMAX was amazing.
