On Friday night I got the chance to go and see the most highly anticipated movie of the summer Suicide Squad. It had already had its world premiere a few days before that. The reviews were out and it didn’t look good. Matter of fact it was nearly as badly reviewed as Batman VS Superman, and we all know how that ended up.
I chose to ignore all the reviews and go into the movie with an open mind, mainly because the first trailer I seen was so damn good. You know the one Im on about, it was the second trailer for Suicide Squad with Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. It was one of the best trailers i have ever seen for a movie.
On the back of that I wasn’t going to let a few bad reviews stop me from enjoying this movie.
I would like to point out that Suicide Squad is indeed better then Batman vs Superman (that wouldn’t be hard), but it is still a movie that I didn’t enjoy.
First of all the first half of the movie seems to be one big long music video as they are introducing the characters they have song after song, which is ok to a certain point, but when you get to the stage when your sound track is better then your movie you know you have done something wrong. I think they had such success with the trailer they tried to brig as much as that into the movie as possible, but less is more in some ceases.
Next thing I didn’t like about the movie was Jared Leto’s Joker I seen what he was trying to do by been even crazier then Heath Ledger’s Joker in the Dark Knight. There was two problems with that first of all Heat Ledger played the perfect Joker in that movie and no one will ever be able to top that performance. Second was that Leto’s Joker seemed to be angry the whole time and that was why he was crazy where I think the Joker did all the evil stuff cause he enjoyed doing it and that is what makes the Joker crazy but that could be just me. Let me know what you think.
The next thing that I didn’t like about the movie was the bad guys. In the comics the Suicide Squad was fighting for the good side because they had a chip in their heads that would explode if they didn’t. In the movie this is the same way but the Squad also want to risk their lives for the greater good and that doesn’t sound like something the worst of the worst would do. The Squad are trying to atone for their actions it felt like.
Also the people that are controlling them are meant to be good guys (how good can they be if they stick a bomb in someones head so they will do as they are told) but throughout the movie you see the good guys are as evil or more so then the villains. I would of enjoyed the movie more if you had the Squad fighting their captures as well as the big bad but again that is just me.
This was the first time that Will Smith was to play a bad guy. I don’t think he did played a bad guy, he played a guy who wants to change for his daughter but in the comics he has a death wish and that is why he said he would join the team this would drastically change the way Deadshot should be played I think.I do think that Margot Robbie played Harley Quinn as the girls who was driven mad by the Joker and wants to get back to here love. I think that she stole the show from Will Smith.
