Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad ★★★

Feels like a gloomier, doomier Guardians of the Galaxy, right down to its hodgepodge of a soundtrack that still surprisingly works. Really liked the focus on character development and relationships, but the killer here is the lack of any real conflict. Feels like a Suicide Squad intervention. Also, though Margot Robbie is such a scene-stealer here, Jared Leto is so good but so massively shortchanged it's sad. I think by the time the DC Comics Universe gets its act together and stops, people will have finished their own race to see better, more assured films.
