Suicide Squad ★★★½

I absolutely love the characters especially Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, easily my two favorite parts of the film. The problem though is that these characters are completely in the wrong movie. Coming from someone who fucking loved Batman v Superman, I have to admit the Suicide Squad is a mess. The third act is ridiculous with such and underwhelming and useless villain. The Joker and his henchmen would've made for much better villain for the film and kept the Suicide Squad a little more grounded. That doesn't mean there isn't fun to be had, it was enjoyable watch for me, but I can't just turn aside the problems with it because they are blatantly obvious. That being said I am still super stoked for the future of the DCEU and cannot wait to see the directors cut of the movie, which is what we should've saw in the theaters to begin with.
