Suicide Squad Review

Why it does not suck

Suicide Squad is directed by David Ayer and stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Jared Leto, Joel Kinnaman, Scott Eastwood, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Cara Delevingne and many others!
I was very excited for this movie because of how different it is. We never see a movie that goes in the villain's point of view and I saw a pot of potential in this movie. I love David Ayer as a director and writer because he has made many masterpieces. He wrote the script Training Day, he directed movies such as Street Kings, End of Watch, and he wrote and directed Fury. Sabotage was not a fantastic movie but it is forgivable. He makes amazing movies for the most part and I heard he was writing and directing Suicide Squad and I was pumped instantly. Did he deliver?
Let me begin with the cons of this movie. This first one is minor but it bothered me and it is that I did not think Deadshot had the mask on for long enough. They were showing us way too much of Will Smith’s face and not enough of the Deadshot mask. The mask is super badass and key to the character and it would’ve been cool to see him wearing it whenever in combat but he only wears it about two times. The other negative is the villain (Enchantress) was not that appealing. They had a good background build up for the character but the villain was not demeaning in any way and did not live up to the build up. Their performance was good but the villain's role was no good. Now for the positives!
The performances were great, especially Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. They steal the show. The others do not get too many lines. You are told their background story (which I absolutely enjoyed) and they kick ass in the background. Next, this movie is fun and witty. I liked how they did not take this movie way too seriously. They had fun with it and it was definitely loads of fun. I laughed quite a bit too. The characters are all funny and witty but know when to be serious and have that side of them to sympathize or feel for. This especially goes for Deadshot and Harley Quinn. The story revolves around them basically and I absolutely loved their characters and their emotions and the chemistry they had together. Lastly, THE JOKER. I enjoyed his screen time a lot. Jared Leto’s portrayal of The Joker was awesome and he really captured the psychopathic but cool bad guy personality that I love about The Joker in the comics and in the Arkham video games. I cannot wait to see more of him in maybe a Batman film? That was awesome to see his character and Harley Quinn come together on screen and it was handled amazingly. I feel that the critics were way too harsh on this movie and I am confused about how the critics ask DC for a fun and not so serious movie about superheroes/villains but now they got one and they are not appreciating it. Hopefully they do not do this to Justice League: Part One. I give Suicide Squad a SOLID 80%
