Yeah, and it wasn't great. I enjoyed Harley and Deadshot, but not really anyone else because I didn't get to know them as much throughout the movie.

I really didn't like Leto as the Joker; he was trying way too hard and just came off as creepy (but not in a good or likeable way).

I loved Robbie as Harley Quinn, though. Some of her lines were cheesy and cringy, but I think she did well with what she was given. She was kinda cute tbh. I hope she appears on screen more.

Saw it. The actress who played the villain was AWFUL. She was just horrible. Viola Davis' character was the stereotypical leader "we need you to destroy this person. If you do, this, this and this, you'll be free" after the hero beats the bad guys, the leader's like but you did this, that person let so and so did that so you're going back!" Jared Leto's Joker bugged me. It just made me miss Ledger. It wasn't his fault that was on me

The performance was good but some parts it seemed like he was trying too hard. Will Smith was well, Will Smith. The girl with the sword, her role was too small. Pity. I liked her. I liked the others too. I do agree about the editing (shoddy)

Yes, and it was terrible. No plot, poor casting choices (Will Smith as Deadshot, really??), and serious inconsistencies with established character traits from the source material. As a huge Deadshot fan, I was very disappointed.

Im not sure why ppl went in with gigantic expectations. Its the Dirty Dozen with shitty actors and weaker badguys.

Its based on a comic comprised of characters that were never good enough to hold their own comics. They throw in Deadshot and HQ just to make it sellable.

You knew going into it they would spend at least 45mins setting up character backgrounds.

You knew the Joker & Batman were only making apearences.

The plot was weak as shit, but I still didnt mind it. Plus after 90mins of Margot Robbie shaking her ass on screen, I dragged Mrs. SHADOW into the bedroom like a gorilla and gave her a hell of a mauling. So the movie was ok.

It was fun to see a different type of comic book movie, and it was definitely different. But, overall it's not good. Weak plot and Enchantress is one of the worst comic book villains I've ever seen. I didn't really like Jared Leto as the Joker either. Maybe I would have liked him better if he was in the movie more.

Yes. It was ok. Deadshot and Harley tried their best to make the movie interesting, but dumb plot, bad writing, and lame characters kept dragging it down. Jared Leto wasn't a good joker in my opinion, it just seemed like something was off every time he spoke, and the aesthetic looked more trashy than anything

I enjoyed the movie until the big finish. It reminded of Ghostbusters (the original) without the funny lines. Otherwise, pretty good. Leto was a good joker, Smith was fine. I just don't see any solo movies, lots of crossovers, but didn't think anyone was good enough for a solo movie. At least not yet.

Not a good movie by any objective measure. 4/10 at best. The editing of the film was to be honest awful at times feeling like scenes were actually missing and the movie left me going what the hell is going on far too often for me to give it s good score. As for the actors El Diablo was the breakout star no question and I would fully support DC doing a solo project centered solely on him. Harley was good but many of her lines felt off like they were trying to jam "cutesy" or "crazy" lines in regardless of the actual character also she should have used her mallet more. Deadshot wasn't bad but Will Smith is just too Will Smith so while watching him I'm entertained but I'm not watching Deadshot I'm watching Will Smith with good aim. Katana needed way more development since the movie never really established her as a character (so did Captain Boomerang but to a lesser degree). Killer Croc actually looked pretty good in the prosthetics as long as he kept the hoodie on because when he took

it off it became painfully obvious how skinny he was which looked very weird. Enchantress was an odd villain choice and the final battle felt super lopsided since it didn't feel like any of the main cast barring Katana had a weapon that could hurt Enchantress. Jared Leto's Joker is an odd one I will say that it has a look that makes me feel like he's going for a more "funny" joker but for most of the film he played it more similar to Ledger than Nicholson but I think that might be because he wasn't in the movie much and so didn't get a real chance to portray his joker. Overall it's not a great movie but it does a halfway decent job of establishing the squad and if they give me a good El Diablo movie I will literally drown them in money.

Write a movie script in six weeks and then come back to me with your movies by Christmas. That's basically what WB told David Ayer at comic-con last year. Considering the time frame in which he had, it's a great movie.

Korosensei Maine
08/15/16 9:25 pm

Sorry that's not good enough. Saying "oh but he had these constraints" that is a way to explain flaws that is not however a reason to excuse them Ayer did not do a bad job and I'd like to see him direct a solo El Diablo movie or a suicide squad II but that doesn't mean I'm going to overlook the major flaws in this one.

@theblackoak: Yes, many critics didn't give the movie a good rating. But there were plenty of non critics who didn't like the film. Just read these comments, there are a number of people who didn't like it. The box office results for the second weekend dropped higher than expected, close to BvS. The film will still make tons of money, it just wasn't universally loved by all fans and universally hated by all critics.

So Smith has to serve as the baseline is what your saying? Despite the fact that Deadshot has been portrayed (quite well) in numerous cartoons because those aren't movies they don't count? The comic books don't count at all towards how he should be portrayed?

Okay everyone keeps praising Deadshot and I really don't see it Smith did a fine job I'll grant you but I'd say the standout performance was El Diablo he was the one who I want to actually see more of and would pay to watch a solo movie of Will Smith Deadshot not so much.

Go watch it bamagirl. Just don't go into it expecting to see a marvel movie and you'll love it. That's really the problem nowadays. Everybody is used to the marvel formulaic movie and jokes every two seconds. DC is not marvel. DC has a lot of darker stories. I'm not saying marvel doesn't have dark stories (Marvel's Netflix shows are dark) but DC has a lot more popular ones. Suicide squad is darker than the trailers make it out to be, but it's still great! I loved it! I'd say it may even be as dark as BvS if not darker.. but definitely a DC movie and a comics movie unlike all the rest. I love that they were able to include Batman and joker, without making them too much if the story and understanding that we were here to watch suicide squad, NOT a Batman movie. Even flash has a cameo, and again it just makes you realize all the more that these movies are connected and great that they didn't focus on them. Cause that's like comics. Including other characters but not focusing on them.
