Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad ★★★

As problematic as it is fun, "Suicide Squad" is a unique, stylish, silly and chaotic semi-B-movie that sacrifice having an interesting and well plotted story in exchange for it's large and hugley enjoyable cast of characters. Jay Hernandez and Will Smith create a good emotional back-bone for the film, Jai Courtney actually shows some charisma and Margot Robbie and Jared (under-used) Leto fit their respective characters quite well. The action is frenetic, exhilarating and an absolute blast to experience.

As fun as this film maybe the fun sort of comes at the expense of having a generic, messy and uninteresting story. The plot as a whole feels like a complete after-thought. That being said, I wanna see this movie again! It's by far one of the most fun films I've seen all year and it boosts a unique aesthetic and attitude that you can't find any where else in a blockbuster. It's far from perfect but as far as popcorn entertainment goes this summer, you can definitely do worse than this. This DCEU is 3 for 3 in my humble opinion! (6.5/10)
