Suicide Squad has Merit
DC universe’s most recent comic book based movie, Suicide Squad, put an interesting twist on the classic “super team” approach in the superhero film industry by creating a team of imprisoned villains whose sole job is to save the world or die trying.
The film made it no challenge to start liking the world’s most dangerous super villains.
The introductions were well done with film intermissions that broke things up and provided information in the form of cool animations on every member of the squad, as well as backstory that developed an attachment between the viewers and the characters.
On top of this connection, the cast filled their roles well, with a particular shout out to Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.
Also, props have to be given to Jared Leto who had to fill the shoes of Heath Ledger in playing the Joker; Leto nailed the portrayal of the character.
Additionally, the character interactions were well done, with DC delivering on their promises to add humor, throwing just the right amount of laughs into the mix.
Throughout the movie, character chemistry builds and it was easy to cheer for the so-called “worst of the worst,” especially the Joker and Harley Quinn, who are now officially in my top five favorite movie couples.
Also, who could forget the soundtrack? From Eminem, to Queen, to G-Eazy, to The Rolling Stones, the music matched the scenes in which they were played and created a great background for every moment.
Suicide Squad is a great movie with plenty of entertaining scenes to keep viewers captivated and to make it fun to be bad.
