Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad ★★

This movie has a lot of problems, but I'll give it credit for not being boring. My biggest issue is not the lengthy character intros, but rather Ayer and company introducing them as villains and then expecting us to buy them as heroes with no transitional period. The weak CGI, the entire ending, the lousy villain, and the fact that it's not believable for this group to accomplish what they do are all among my gripes. Margo Robbie owns this movie. Jared Leto's joker was simply a different take on the character and he was ok, but a non-factor despite what the trailers make you believe. Smith and Davis were fine, the rest was meh. Thumbs down, but I do want to see the extended cut.
