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

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
August 5, 2016
There are some astonishing visuals and enjoyable performances from Will Smith and Margot Robbie in particular, but overall Suicide Squad is a sloppy mess.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 10, 2017
For all its cast and crew's inglorious chest-thumping, Suicide Squad is a failed, forced exercise in - of all things! you had one job! - ensemble chemistry.
August 4, 2016
For all that exposition, the film never tells us what we really need to know: Why should we care?
August 4, 2016
Suicide Squad should have been a whole lot better.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
