Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad ★★★★

"On the outside, you're amazing. But on the inside...you're ugly."

Let me start out by saying that this is by FAR, the most fun I've had in a theater all damn summer. 
Cohesive? Nope. Chaotic to a fault? Hell yes. 
I think these DCEU films being messy and slightly-incoherent is pretty much par for the course now, but this time around I found it to be rather charming. Sure, Ayer manages to waste a few characters (both literally and figuratively), but the way he chooses to introduce and represent the main squad itself is remarkable and deserves much admiration. 
Absolutely sadistic and provacative performances from each and everyone in this, from Viola Davis' mystifyingly-evil Amanda Waller, to Jared Leto's completely one-of-a-kind and (very few) scene-stealing Joker, right down to Adam Beach's stoic yet understated Slipknot.
Also worth noting that this features what I would easily consider to be one of the best soundtracks, and some of the COOLEST action set-pieces in comic-book film history. I might even prefer this to Guardians of the Galaxy? I haven't been this stoked for a rewatch in a hell of a long time.
My love for the squad is stronger than Boomerang's fetish for unicorns.


4/5
