It's overstuffed with a rather conventional villain and story, yet it also manages to build up enough good will thanks to three standout performances.

But is it fun? Well, if you can ignore the blatant stereotypes and ham-fisted dialogue, perhaps. Also if you can ignore the film's dismal view of women. And its soundtrack.

This film felt like tiny stories all thrown together at once with no real character or plot development. By the time you truly understand the purpose of the villain's existence, you are already in the final act...

Woefully sketchy and missing the fueled opulence that one would expect emerging from this cockeyed costume caper, 'Suicide Squad' is a detonating dud for the missing explosive DC Comics movie brand
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

[Feels] all at once like an irritating wallow in the paint-huffing waste-of-skin teenage version of anarchic excess and the infuriatingly fake, phony, mass-market corporate co-opting of the paint-huffing waste-of-skin teenage version of anarchic excess.

Suicide Squad plays like a graphic novel brought to life. It's a fun action romp with some great turns from a bunch of actors who are clearly having a blast.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Suicide Squad is a movie without a plot, operating solely through countless flashbacks that employ some of the most obvious and moronic needle drops in the recent history of blockbuster cinema.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Much like the antiheroes at its center, it often feels like a conflicted, unfocused mass of energy and attitude that should be far more exciting than it is.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

David Ayer has made his mark on the DC extended universe in a similar way to what Tim Miller did with 'Deadpool' although DC have held back from going all out with this film and kept a 15 rating
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 30, 2018
Fails to provide enough action and story that doesn't shy itself away from falling to the tropes of a generic summer blockbuster.

That visual murk, and the film's trafficking with demons...suggests a second-tier Hong Kong fantasy film from the '90s. Like one of those movies, it doesn't much matter if it doesn't make sense.
August 28, 2018
At its worst, the film wallows around in dark tones and an endless stream of bullets, making it instead resemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, for all the wrong reasons.
August 27, 2018
Something's off here. It doesn't feel like the editor and the director were on the same page at all...entirely too much exposition and not enough of the story.
August 22, 2018
For all its posturing as a dark portrait of super sociopaths, Suicide Squad.. never becomes nightmarish enough. It lacks the necessary teeth and ambiguity to connect cartoonish evil with the relatable horrors of everyday life.
August 22, 2018
"Suicide Squad" has some fun and worthwhile moments, such as the entire segment of the team's introduction, but it's unclear what it ultimately wants to be and too uneven to make up for it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

"Suicide Squad" is full of action, lots of violence and larger-than-life evil thanks to Computer Generated Imagery and costuming. It's dark and menacing and will please fans of this genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

In essence, Suicide Squad has everything a summer blockbuster should, without taking itself too seriously. It is the very essence of wildly entertaining.
August 21, 2018
I actually didn't hate it. Really.
August 21, 2018
Snap out of it! Wake up and smell the java. "Suicide Squad" is a wash. Deal with it. Don't blame the critics who point out, accurately, the film's myriad shortcomings Blame studio meddling for the neutered nature of much of what's unfolding onscreen.

... the storytelling was done really well and the introduction of the characters was very fun and... the way they handled introducing these characters was handled well.
