Another day; another comic-book pandemonium.
August 4, 2016
Suicide Squad amounts to an all-out attack on the whole idea of entertainment.
August 4, 2016
It wants so desperately to be subversive and irreverent in the manner of Fight Club or, more likely, Deadpool. And yet the most shocking thing about it is how risk-averse it turns out to be.
August 4, 2016
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
Even the most garish escapism requires a director who has the mental discipline to hold out for a fecund idea and the inventive power to build on it. In Suicide Squad, as in Sabotage, the only time brains enter the picture is when heads explode.
August 4, 2016
This movie dearly hopes it can skate by entirely on attitude, but forgets to develop said attitude. It wants to stand out thanks to its team dynamics, but forgets that a team is made up of many individual characters.
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
There's no one to root for in this movie, and no one whose prospects we care about. Several plot points lack coherence, and inserted flashbacks add to a sense of the film having been fused into shape in the editing room.
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.
August 4, 2016
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.
August 4, 2016
Sure, it's terrible. But it's not even close to the worst movie of the summer or the year.
August 3, 2016
[A] bloated and cheerless monstrosity.
August 3, 2016
It gives me no pleasure to trash this film. I want D.C. Comics fans to have nice things, too. On the bright side, there are, like, a gajillion more D.C. Comics films coming down the pike. At least one of them has to be good, right? Right?
August 3, 2016
Ayer tries to bring his trademark realism to the action sequences, but it gets lost in the realm of comic-book fantasy.
August 3, 2016
It's massive, messy and noisy. And it stinks.
