Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad ★½

If you liked the scene in Batman v Superman where Wonder Woman watched YouTube videos about the future members of the Justice League, you'll love Suicide Squad.

Instead of just one scene of plot-stopping fan service, Suicide Squad delivers an entire first act of soul-deadening exposition. The movie spends 20 story-free minutes with a Machiavellian bureaucrat while she sits in a restaurant discussing a top secret personnel file. Here is Deadshot, the world’s greatest assassin; this is Harley Quinn, the Joker’s psychotic girlfriend. Oh and have you heard about Captain Boomerang? And on and on and on.
