After hearing about the negative reviews Suicide Squad had I was a bit worried as I thought I wouldn’t like it. In my opinion, I thought ‘Suicide Squad’ was a good movie. I’m slightly confused as to why there are so many negative reviews. The movie had loads of action and comedy elements with a few sad scenes. I think the reason the movie may have had negative review could have been because the actors involved are well-known, so people had high expectations. I’ve watched the movie twice and I still thought it was great.
I thought the plot line was great, I loved Harley’s and the Joker’s relationship. I loved how he would do just about anything to get Harley back. Will Smith was right Margot Robbie and Jared Leto did have great chemistry. Jared Leto did a great job as the Joker, I know a few thought that it was a big job to fill in especially after Heath Ledger’s performance. But I thought both versions of the Joker were great as we got to see different perspectives of the Joker. Margot Robbie performance in the movie was great I liked seeing the different sides to her character. We saw that she was not fearless and psychotic in the beginning, but changed later on.
I thought the cast choice was great. I loved Viola Davis as Amanda Waller you couldn’t tell in the beginning if she was evil or not. Although she did give some subtle hints that we really shouldn’t trust her, an example is when Harley asked her “Are you the devil?” She replied with “Maybe.”. At the time I thought it was a joke, but towards the end, I figured she was half-joking and half being serious. Will Smith scene with his daughter at the end was heart-warming, it was good to see as we were so used to him being a heartless killer.
Cara Delevingne role as Dr June Moone and Enchantress although it was not entirely all bad it could have also been a lot better. At times her acting felt a bit unbelievable, especially in the scenes after Enchantress had possessed her body and she was herself again. I did not fully believe that she was genuinely upset. I don’t believe that she can act as well as she thinks. Not all models can transition from a model to an Actress straight away it takes trial and error.
The only major issues I had with the movie was that there were some scenes that was confusing. But overall I thought the movie was good.
I would rate it a 7/10.
