SUICIDE SQUAD | Movie Review Friday 05 August, 2016

Hey guys here for another movie review. I am reviewing the highly anticipated film Suicide Squad produced from the adaption of the DC Comics. I want to get this out the way and say this movie over-exceeded my expectations and I am excited to share my thoughts with you all on this film. If you are into comic, you have be awaiting for this for a long time and the personification of the cartoon characters were greatly casted and was given justice to bring this movie alive. If you aren’t familiar with the infamous SUICIDE SQUAD I will give you a brief synopsis.

Synopsis:  Suicide Squad is a 2016 American superhero film based on the DC Comics antihero team of the same name and is the third installment in the DC Extended Universe. The film is written and directed by David Ayer and stars an ensemble cast featuring Will SmithJared LetoMargot RobbieJoel KinnamanViola DavisJai CourtneyJay HernandezAdewale Akinnuoye-AgbajeIke BarinholtzScott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne. In Suicide Squad, a secret government agency led by Amanda Waller recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions and save the world from a powerful threat in exchange for clemency.

My opinion: I will be honest I had my bias on this film because I am not into comics, I didn’t know the backstory and I am not into action flicks. I also was turned off by the name “Suicide Squad” so I didnt know what kind of sick twisted movie this was gonna be and I almost wanted no parts in it. I was WRONG! This movie was so intriguing, and especially with the visuals. The production did A-1 on the visual aesthetics of the film as they had a modern cartoon pop art effect and bright colors that immediately drew me in. This film had a superstar cast, but Will Smith is one of the major stars of the film; I didn’t know that until later and of course he blew it out the water as a leading man of the Squad DeathPoint. He looked great playing the role too may I add, and although he was a lead – he didn’t overshadow the storyline.

Another point I loved in the movie was Margot Robbie character who played the fiesty and psychopathic Harley Quinn. She is apart of the squad as a ditzy, flirty but very mental imbalanced character – and she played this role so well. Harley Quinn was the lover to The Joker…and I love how they tied in their backstory and her development of her being the psycho we know her to be. She was a little sexy but not too over the top to where it was distracting but she really personified the original comic book character. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out the correlation of Will Smith and Margot Robbie relationship, but they played in the movie Focus together as a love interest. They arent lovers in Suicide Squad but there is still a great working chemistry between these two and happy they were casted together to bring this movie more to life.

Overall this movie was playful and fun. If you aren’t into comicbooks like myself, you would still highly enjoy this film for the entertaiment and follow along well. A lot of people are anticipating this film because of Jared Leto’s role as the infamous Joker. The Joker is totally different, modern, trendy and flashy but still psychic! I will be honest is not a whole lot of Joker like you think because he is NOT the main villian…and I wont spoil it and tell you who the villian is but its interesting. Maybe this new modern Joker will get his own film adaptation based on his trendier more urban gangster like adaptation. We will see. I highly recommend you go see this…entertaining, fun and engaging.

But wait there’s more!!!
