The Suicide Squad

The Suicide Squad ★★★★

While probably being the most brutal and bloody comic book film to date, James Gunn proves he has what it takes to pull it off well! In addition to excellent cinematography, a fantastic soundtrack, flashy visual effects, and a tight pace, this film dives deeper into the DC characters and gives them a level of humanity and emotional stakes, along with haunting back stories, that makes for a truly effective journey. You route for these characters, as well as feel for them, at the same time. Also, the cast is solid all around and there is no weak link. This movie holds nothing back and that is exactly what we needed to reset the terrible 2016 installment.
