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.

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.

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.

"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.

"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.

In essence, Suicide Squad has everything a summer blockbuster should, without taking itself too seriously. It is the very essence of wildly entertaining.

I actually didn't hate it. Really.

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.

All in all, this movie was ok. It's not the end of all movies as we know it, and it's not the movie that pierces the heavens either.

There's so much good stuff that I liked in Suicide Squad it's a bummer that it gets so messed up by the bad stuff in there. There's enough good stuff in it that you'll enjoy it, just be prepared that after a while.

Truly, it's hard to care that much about these bad people, or the lightning-belching cloud of debris swirling above Midway, or whether Jared Leto's Joker is disturbing or distracting.

If DC keeps moving in this direction, they'll get it right. They figured out a great balance between humor and emotion and seriousness and character development; the pieces were all there.

Suicide Squad isn't as fun of a ride as Guardians of the Galaxy. It could have been, with more performances like Jared Leto's and Margot Robbie's....

Suicide Squad simply shouldn't be a movie about saving the world like every other superhero movie; the characters are far too interesting and entertaining to be stuck in something so cliché
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

hile it's not perfect, Suicide Squad is very good and definitely worth catching... It's a film with confidence and swagger, a film in which the sharpness of its dialogue is matched only by the coolness of its (very loud) soundtrack.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Suicide Squad shows all the signs of a movie subjected to heavy studio interference-terrible pacing, horrendous editing, uneven tone.
September 19, 2017
Somewhere in that mess is a film, possibly a good one. As presented, however, Suicide Squad is a wasted opportunity.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
