Suicide Squad ★★

I didn't think it could be possible but DC managed to make an even worse film than Batman vs Superman. I came to this with no particular expectations other than some trashy enjoyment but it was so weak that I was kind of gobsmacked. It's like a cosplay convention where everyone strikes cool poses for a while but then awkwardly stands around wondering what to do next.

The characters are cliched and unlikeable, the action is forgettable and the plot is just a thin excuse to stage some generic fight scenes. The only vague positive is some nice-looking visuals towards the end (and I'm really stretching).

Jared Leto's embarrassingly lame portrayal of The Joker is the rotten banana peel on top of this garbage pile.
