What if Superman flew down into the White House and grabbed the president right out of the Oval Office? Who’s going to stop him? We’ll need a squad, a suicide squad, and that’s the premise of this movie. It’s finally here, the movie so many comic book fans were waiting for: Suicide Squad.
I watched it when it was first released in theatres with my friends. Overall, I can say that the movie was fun for sure. But it isn’t as deep and sophisticated like the Marvel movies.
Even though it was an enjoyable experience, the movie had a lot of mistakes and ridiculous plot holes that left my friends and I pretty confused. Even the brilliant acting of Margot Robbie who played Harley Quinn couldn’t save the film.
There were too many moments that made my friends and I stare at each other in utter confusion. Many (including me) can agree that Suicide Squad was a huge let down. It was fun, but not up to expectations.
Critics were eager to bash the movie as soon as it came out because of the new and controversial “Joker” played by Jared Leto, and the outfits of the characters, claiming that they were disrespecting the source material. The movie got a 30% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Most critics thought that Suicide Squad had no plot leaving viewers with a story that didn’t make sense. They’re right! Don’t let all the flashy action and the characters fool you – the plot literally doesn’t progress.
SPOILERS AHEAD! The main villain of the movie is Enchantress, a member of the suicide squad, who wants to rule the world, and her brother. The squad is then deployed to stop its own former member, Enchantress. The Enchantress’ brother dies and that’s the end of the movie. It’s just that simple. David Ayer did a great job directing the movie with the cast but the story was too simple with no climax. It is certain that Suicide Squad did not meet the expectations of fans.
