    What’s unique about this film is that it had shards of awesomeness in there. It had stylish characters, cool moments and some interesting ideas.

    Rewatching it I began to understand the movie’s purpose a little more. Nonetheless, it left much to be desired.

      Yeah i think those moments were probably the original cut of the movie that were then mashed together lol

    This is the only DC movie that I have yet to see. I am very disappointed to see that this movie has gotten such a low rating, and reading this review, especially about the things you are saying about the way the editing is done, I don’t think I am going to have a different opinion for it. Shame really, as the trailers looked very promising indeed. Still, I am going to check it out on some point, when the dvd has it’s price lowered for a bit. Great post as always 😊

      That’s a good call, I think it’s on HBO right now so you can check it out there if you have it!

    To me, the movie wasn’t completely terrible (as some were portraying it to be), but I can’t ignore all the negative problems it had. There were too many characters, the plot was very thin, and it tried to be too similar (in tone and style) to Guardians of the Galaxy.

    • Nick Kush says:

      Totally agree! I just wish that it tried to be it’s own movie instead of following the Marvel formula

    I too like Smith and Robbie and their charisma kind of drove the film enough for me to enjoy it. I also didn’t hate Leto’s Joker. It’s a different take and I understand people not being down with it but I thought it worked in the context of the trash pile the rest of the film was.That said, I can’t remember a whole lot about the film as a whole and it doesn’t hold up to the comics in any way. And who thought a trash cyclone was a good idea?

    • Nick Kush says:

      Well apparently every major studio does because there’s one in every single blockbuster lol

    I preferred this film over Batman V Superman as well. I on the sneak thought it was good. The performances by Will Smith and Margot Robbie made up for all the deficiencies(this critic did not mind the camerawork on Margot Robbie either by the way) also is this the first time you did a what you didnt like continued continued lol

    • Nick Kush says:

      Suprisingly I’ve done the dislike continues continued more than you think. It’s a shame that I have to…lol

  6. Although I agree in that it’s not a good film, I personally prefer this over “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, since it’s nowhere near as painfully long as that film, plus Zack Snyder is just limited to a scene where Flash captures Captain Boomerang. I agree that Will Smith and Margot Robbie turn in the best performances of the film and that most of the other characters (expect maybe Diablo and Captain Boomerang, the first time I didn’t Jai Courtney as a block of wood in a bad action movie) ranged from OK to Meh to utterly superfluous. The character development was some of the worst I’ve ever seen in the film (it’s laughable that Katana doesn’t show up until the gang is about to head out), the soundtrack is obviously trying to copy “Guardians of the Galaxy” without knowing why that film’s soundtrack worked, I was never able to properly gage Jared Leto’s portrayal of the Joker (most likely because his good scenes were cut out) resulting in him being woefully underwhelming and the situation seems more like something that the Justice League could take care of and not a team of delinquents. Maybe if their mission was in a hostile area that the U.S. Government wasn’t allowed to go to and their opposition was a tad more down-to-Earth, then there wouldn’t be as much complaining from us.

    By the way for those who aren’t comic book-inclined, Midway City is Hawkman’s turf. Funny how we place a crisis in his domain and yet he’s nowhere to be found.

    In the end, if you want to see a good Suicide Squad film, watch “Batman: Assault on Arkham” instead. Their mission is much-more plausible, hardly anyone feels unimportant to the plot and the Joker is given far more dignity here as the MAIN VILLAIN!

  7. Great review! I’m glad someone else noticed the awful editing in it. It was painful to watch. Poor Will Smith was trying so hard to save the movie.

  8. Hugh information where you have been ?
