The Suicide Squad RETURNS! It isn’t woke, it’s fun, bloody and hilarious at times. A good film in a sea of GARBAGE. Here are my SPOILER FREE thoughts.
when i first heard james gunn was goingto be directing the suicide squadi thought it would probably be a prettygood film andmy expectations were not subverted in aseaof hollywood garbage it is nice to get afilm that is justentertaining and that’s what this isthis is the suicide squad reviewthere will be no spoilers so let’s dothiserotic.com the suicide squad is a sequelof sorts to suicide squadalthough i think you have to see thefirst movie toat least know what’s going on in thebeginning of the second because theyrushed through thata bit which i didn’t have a problem withbecause i knew what was going on notsure how that would play to somebody whohasn’t seen the first film now as far asthe first film is concernedit’s not very good i like the first 15minutes i like the trailersi liked elements of it but it fell apartin the last i don’t know two-thirds ormaybe three quarters of the filmand air cut fans i hear you it wasn’tdavid ayer’s fault i actually think he’sa pretty damn good director hashtagreleased the air cutthat being said ayers cut did most ofthe heavy lifting for this filmas far as setting up the suicide squadparticularlyamanda waller played perfectly again byviola davisthe gist of the film is some supervillains get some time off theirsentence if they goon a super secret government mission andit looks like james gunn tried to outdodavid ayer on the dc villain deep cutsbecausethese were deep including weasel ratcatcher 2and that’s a dc thing as well and polkadot mancreated by bill finger along withharlequinamanda waller rick flag captainboomerang peacemakerking shark the thinker savant tdk whowas armed fall off boyblack guard javelin mongol and we havecameosfrom calendar man double down and crazyquilt and of course starrobut our main character is bloodsport onthe surface it might look a bitcheesy that they replaced will smith’sdeadshotwith bloodsport i mean he has verysimilar powers and the exact samebackstoryhe has a daughter that is the motivationfor his characterbut it ended up working just fine nowi liked will smith’s dead shot in thefirst one and it would have been greatto have him back but idris alba did agreat joband now my superman volume 2 number 4 byjohn byrne might be worth moneythe suicide squad belongs to threepeople james gunn foragain getting heart and soul out ofcharacters you have no business gettingheart and soul out ofand they previously mentioned idris albaas blood sporti thought his powers and his tech wasactually pretty damn cool and i lovedhis maskand surprisingly the rat catcher 2played bydaniela melicor certainly there’s acouple things i have to hold my nose atincludingthe kneeler john cena you know the onewho apologized to chinafor saying taiwan is a countryby the way taiwan is a country and ofcourse there’s james gunn there’s thecontroversy which we’ll talk about alittle bit later and yes he’s aninsufferable prickon twitter but he’s a damn goodfilmmaker and john cenadid a pretty good job as peacemaker butthe standoutis sylvester stallone’s king shark jamesgunn did it again just like he didwith rocket raccoon he took a giantflabby shark and made him hilariousand endearing now aside from othermembers of the cast that i’ll talk aboutlater joel kinnaman’s rick flagg was alittle bitunderused but he was great again andmargot robbiewas spectacular as harley quinn and shewasn’t even the center of the film shecertainly gets herset pieces and action scenes but againthis film centers around bloodsport andrat catcher 2.this is by far the best margot robbieharlequin film her costumeis at least an homage to the animatedseriesyou are reminded that she is a psychoticvillaini would call it the defining scene forharley quinn it isbrutal and brilliant and because jamesgunn was showing off he did birds ofpreybetter than birds of prey again you’llknow it when you see it now i don’t wantto make it sound like harley quinn isn’tin the film she isa lot but it just doesn’t center aroundher she’s justanother member of the team and that’swhat makes it workand i would be remiss if i didn’tmentionthe great peter capaldi as the thinkerwho hasprobably the single best line in thefilm and againyou’ll know it when you hear it andthere’s polka dot manplayed by david somebody i’m sorry iforgot your name buddyhe did a really good job too theperformanceswere what carried this film becauseotherwisethere’s not a lot to it and theredoesn’t need to be my favorite partabout this film is it’s unapologeticallya comic book film and not just any comicbook filma dc comic book film it made me feellike i was readingan 80s dc comic which is the sweet spotfor mei mean this has starro in it and itworks it’s done perfectly there’s thislittle lineat the end which i won’t spoil for youwhich absolutelymakes the character and the best news ofall is this filmisn’t woke it isn’t filled with identitypoliticsit isn’t preaching at you at any timeand it isn’t filled withintersectional feminism look whathappens when you try hollywood look whathappens when you hirea talented director and talentedstorytellersand this again is my favorite kind ofmovieone that is character driven we didn’tneed anytricks or gimmicks like following amacguffin or an unreliable narrator orsubversion of expectations give me agiantsuper intelligent hive mind zombiemaking starfishover a beam of light shooting up in thesky any daythe film is funny it has heart yesit earned its r rating it is gory ashell and a lot of people dieand not that i need brilliant effectsand everything hell i’m a doctor who fanbut theeffects in this film were impressive nowis this film perfect nothe soundtrack for the first film isbetter in my opinion and that’s asurprise with the james gunn filmand the score is it’s adequateit’s nothing i’m gonna remember mybiggest criticism with the filmis it gets a little slow at times kindof like guardians of the galaxy vol 2.especially in the middle and yeah for ajames gun joint i was expectingsomethinga little more fast paced now the onething i found interesting and this isfor the snyder cup fans was that promothey ran right before the film startedit showedhenry cavill superman and ben affleck’sbatmanprominently felt like a big tease warnerbrothers should be kicking disney’s assright now as far as comic book films areconcerned and itisn’t because it’s one of the dumbestcompaniesin america and unfortunately we mighthave seenour last good dc film there might be onemoreout there the batman could possibly begood my mind is open to it buti’m not sure because of those jar jarabrams connections and yes the destroyerof franchisesis on his way to destroy yours rightafter i saw this film i went in mygarage and dug out my80s suicide squad run and i can’t waitto rip through those things againand this is exactly how i’m supposed tofeel after watchinga comic book film i want to go out andread suicide squad comic booksi want to go buy the hot toys and i hopethere’s a king sharkblood sport peacemaker hell amandawallerrat catcher 2 polka dot man i would paygood money for a 16 scale starro and i’m gonna see itagain in the theaters with myboys and i’m gonna buy it on 4k that’swhat you call enthusiasm because i wasentertained and i wasn’t preached at sosurprise surprise i haven’t liked asingle marvel thing this year and thetwo superhero movies i liked belonged todcand yes one of them was the snyder cutand the otherwas the suicide squad when it comes tojames gunnno i don’t like the guy very much ithink his views on cancel cultureare and he just so happens tobe a talented director anda lot of talented directors are pricks imean anyonewho can make you feel anything about acgi rat or a walking and talking sharkguyis unequaled in hollywood unfortunatelyhe can’t make you feel that same sort ofendearmenttowards james gunn now the suicide squadis not going to do very well in the boxoffice and it’s not going to getanywhere near the numbersof the first film and james gunn needsto realize that one of the things thatfactors into that low box office is howthe publicfeels about him and i know this is goingto sound like a first world problem buthbo max your platformis garbage you need to work on that andafter watching suicide squad i don’tthink there’s any reason why warnerbrothers can’t releasethe air cut somewhere down the roadmaybe in a year or so especially if it’sdonei don’t give scores i’ll just say it wasreally goodit’s not the best film ever made it’snot even the best james gunn filmbut it might be one of the bestsuperhero filmsthis year and again this is the oneadvantagewarner brothers has on disney it canmake goryrated r superhero films that are prettydamn fununfortunately they don’t make them likethis anymore so i’m gonna enjoy this onewhile it lasts if you like what youheard please like share and subscribe ifyou didn’t like what you heard i thankyou for listening this longhave a great day i’ll see
