The Suicide Squad

The Suicide Squad ★★★½

I wish I could experience the same kind of joy people who love these movies to death feel, I liked this but I would kill to see James Gunn make a movie as good as Slither again.

Don't get me wrong I still had a lot of fun with The Suicide Squad, it felt like a very concerted effort to make something NOT like a typical superhero movie but honestly I still felt kinda bored during a lot of the second act. Thank christ it actually had a fun villain and an actually enjoyable climax, no sky beams, no floating military structure crashing into the ground, none of that overused garbage.

I might as well just buy a fancy lawnmower, put on a baseball hat, get a golf club membership and have everyone start calling me Dad though because to be brutally and unequivocably honest, I think I'd rather just rewatch The Dirty Dozen than sit through this or any other James Gunn superhero movie that isn't called Super again.
