Based on the screening I attended, I can attest that audiences seemed to genuinely enjoy the jokes and get swept up in the action sequences.

To say that the movie loses the plot would not be strictly accurate, for that would imply that there was a plot to lose.

If I have not yet convinced you of the movie's astonishingly slipshod quality, I'm unlikely ever to do so.

Where Suicide Squad's Big Bad should be there is only a Big Narrative Hole.
August 5, 2016
Writer-director David Ayer doesn't have the right graphic technique for a comic-book-style jamboree -- he's strictly a noirish-pulp guy -- and the characters, all of whom are promisingly introduced, fizzle fast.
August 5, 2016
The B-list superheroes have been unleashed upon the world, with their very own cult B-movie, and it's quite a lot of fun.
August 5, 2016
One of the more refreshingly uncomplicated summer blockbusters in recent memory.

Regrettably, the film's place-setting opening lays the scene for a different, more exciting film that never really unfolds.

Sometimes it's good to be bad. In Suicide Squad's case, bad is just plain bad. It gives villainy a bad name.

The closest Suicide Squad comes to the masterworks of Christopher Nolan is that, like Memento, it suffers from instant amnesia.
August 4, 2016
Whenever Robbie isn't dancing around, the movie feels as heavy and relentless as a Mack truck.
August 4, 2016
[A] strange embrace of a movie, which continues to tantalize even as it overstimulates.
August 4, 2016
Everything about "Suicide Squad" from the title on down promises overkill. And the movie, to its ultimate discredit, delivers.
August 4, 2016
Suicide Squad looked bright and promising in its run-up, but lands on the screen with a big-budget thud of missed opportunities.
August 4, 2016
"Suicide Squad" is an interminable muddle.
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
It was supposed to show us that the folks at Warner Bros. still know how to make great comic book movies. Suicide Squad is not very successful at that.

In aiming for - but falling short of appealing to - the teenage demographic, the film is a double cop-out, disappointing both fans of the source material's grown-up gloom-and-doom aesthetic and discerning adolescents.
