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

[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.

October 31, 2018
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
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 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
November 12, 2018
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...

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.

Suicide Squad shows all the signs of a movie subjected to heavy studio interference-terrible pacing, horrendous editing, uneven tone.
August 22, 2017
Suicide Squad leans hard on The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy as templates, but while Marvel's movies generally zip along, Suicide Squad lurches.
June 26, 2017
The film fails its characters by not leaving room for them to stand out individually, and it fails women by attempting to sell an overtly abusive relationship as romantic.
June 1, 2017
It is by no means good, and yet I can't bring myself to hate it.
March 23, 2017
The good news is, it's better than BvS. The bad news is, that's about the best that can be said about it.
December 17, 2016
[Robbie] is by far the top attraction in Suicide Squad, an otherwise tragically ill-conceived juggernaut from the people who make Superman and Batman.
November 8, 2016
This is a wasted opportunity on so many levels.
January 23, 2017
Since I'm no avid superhero fan, I hate to choose sides. However, it is clear that what Marvel does consistently is the very thing that DC Comics continues to struggle with.
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
September 14, 2016
Writer/director David Ayer reportedly penned the script in six weeks, which is painfully obvious from the horrible dialogue, weak characterization, and threadbare plot.
August 2, 2016
Despite being sold as a team of wacky crooks going on laugh-a-minute hijinks, the film takes itself very seriously.
Full Review | Original Score: Not Recommended
August 4, 2016
[Suicide Squad] forgoes interesting characters and engaging plotlines in favor of faux nihilism and flat one-liners. There's simply no reason to care about anything or anyone in this bumbling ballet of idiocy and pyrotechnics.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
