Review of Suicide Squad

So there was a lot of speculation about how this would end up being considering the track record of the DC cinematic universe as well as the look of The Joker. I for one wasn't expecting much. Then I saw the trailer and I was still on the fence about it. Sure the actors are pretty good, but it looked odd. Now that it's out the critics haven't been too nice and the casual viewers haven't been too impressed. I still wanted to see it for myself. So me and my brother went to go see it. In my humble opinion I declare that the negativity is wrong. It's so much better than I had expected it to be. Sure it has a few issues like how they dealt with a few characters as well as a few other small gripes. David Ayer still continues to prove he has the skills to entertain us. I have never seen a movie from him that I didn't like. There were a few badass and unexpected little things that I won't even say here. I actually enjoyed pretty much all of the characters. There were so many complaints about Harley Quinn, but you could actually hear the accent. It may not be perfect, but I do respect their effort. I was okay with this Joker. He wasn't as ridiculous as he looked. Captain Boomerang was a great comic relief. If this doesn't boost people's respect for Jai Courtney then I don't know what will. Will Smith played a badass Deadshot. He was actually the star of the show instead of Harley and Joker. One scene of his in particular was truly amazing. Also it's cool his daughter is from that Netflix show Between. Just glad it was someone he isn't related to haha. Cara Delevingne was interesting here. I'm not quite sure what the deal was with her moving around like that. I found her to be a fairly intriguing character though. Her and Rick Flag seemed a bit silly though. I found it funny whenever they made him the damsel in distress! He added an unusual dynamic to the story that actually seemed to work. It was kind of silly to have Batman here though to basically do nothing but be seen. Killer Croc was visually intriguing. He had a few lines of dialogue, but when he spoke it was usually amusing or pretty cool. I always enjoy Jay Hernandez. I have to admit when I first saw Diablo in the trailer I swore it was Rick Genest. Then I realized it wasn't. The tattoos are pretty fantastic and look realistic. He has one of the coolest moments which is ironic huh? Really though he was actually pretty cool. Katana was a fairly interesting character. I kind of wish she was more than was given. Hell I was pretty damn disappointed when she didn't use her sword to get Enchantress! I was surprised by the addition of Adam Beach. He is a pretty good actor and he plays an interesting character. Well he would have been interesting had he not died so quick. Then again his power was way more useless than anyone on the team. Viola Davis' Amanda Waller was absolutely incredible and fierce. She is cast perfectly and has some great moments throughout. There were a few interesting bit parts including Ike Barinholtz as a douchy prison guard who needs to learn his place. Common who ends up having an interesting role here. David Harbour who I wish had more to do here. Scott Eastwood doesn't do much here playing pretty much another soldier working for/with Flag. Anyways besides a few issues I had with the way some characters were handled I ended up enjoying just about all of them. Oh lastly the after credits scene is an epic moment! It's definitely how that should happen.The action is excellent. I thought the pacing was well done. The script could have used some tweaks, but that is only a minor concern. Anyways I highly recommend that you check this one out. It's so much better than I had expected going in. It's a whole heck of a lot of fun!
