The long anticipated high-fantasy superhero film Suicide Squad has finally been released, but was the drama, re-editing and long wait worth it? Hell yes.
All right, let’s not lie to ourselves, we are all excited for Suicide Squad and who wouldn’t be? Supervillains as good guys who are given a second chance and maybe turning into our favourite characters sounds like a roller coaster of excitement. It worked with Guardians of the Galaxy, so why not now? Not only that but an amazing cast were recruited with Will Smith (Deadshot), Jared Leto (The Joker), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), and Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn).
The David Ayer-directed film is centred on a group of imprisoned supervillains who are assembled by government official Amanda Waller to take on dangerous missions. In exchange for participating their sentences are then reduced. However, here’s the catch if they are caught violating their new role of duty they will be terminated by nano bombs that are implanted in them… yikes, good luck squad!
Now, let’s get this clear we’ve all heard about the negative reviews that’s been lingering around the film since the release of its first trailer. Variety stated that,
“On paper, this could have been the antidote to an increasingly codified strain of comic-book movies, but in the end, it’s just another high-attitude version of the same.”
However, does that mean the film will be bad? Well, after its release IMDb gave Suicide Squad an 8 out of 10-star rating. The people have spoken!
Just from the trailer Suicide Squad looked like a marvellous, dark yet gleeful film about antiheroes with twisted storylines, distorted views on life and jam-packed with a lot of ass whoopin’ and we’re here for it!
So it’s happening, Suicide Squad is out in cinemas as you read. Will you be watching?
