    I saw the movie on Saturday and I've read the comics as well as Harley Quinn's stand-alone stuff and I guess I had the wrong expectations going in. All I wanted to see Harley be half as smart as she is in her comics but I didn't get that vibe. I thought Margot did a great job with the character she just wasn't written very well. For instance, the scene when they are all having a drink and talking about some serious heavy emotions and her best line is "Own that shit!" I didn't get the feeling this is a person with a doctorate in psychology. It might be that she's totally Harley and Harleen hasn't shown back up to the party yet. I also feel that they bungled her origin and the depiction of her romance with Mistah J but that's another discussion entirely.


    Will Smith's Deadshot is great and I thought overall it was a decent film. It felt like a 6/10 for me, it had the right pieces but it the whole was less than the sum of its parts.


    Edit: If you disagree with me please let me know. I'd love to have a discussion about this because most of my friends aren't all that into it and I'd love to have a good chat about this with someone.

    Most of what I hear about this movie is the same as I heard about BvS. "It's got a dumb/confusing story that doesn't make sense, the writing is trash, the characters aren't well developed, and overall it's not great. But it's flashy so it's good." Not really enough for me to support.

      Just saw it tonight. Some of the worst character development I've ever seen. They go from 'ahh, I'm an evil villain' to 'we're all friends!' within one scene with no setup or development. Absolutely laughable. And the action wasn't even very good! Super dissapointing. Deadshot was okay, as was the Joker.

    It did seem vague on character development but the visual effects were awesome! lol

    Not enough time to go in depth with everyones story. I wanted to like Leto's Joker but his solid an short-lived performance couldn't make up for his look they gave him. They did him very wrong with the tattoos, diamond earrings, and most annoying of all grill in his teeth. Harley, Deadshot, and El Diablo were very good in the movie. Margot Robbie was literally perfect and I really hope the rumors of a solo Harley Quinn movie are true.

    Depending on how Wonder Woman and Justice League do I forsee the DCU movies at current iteration dying off for a bit and then "hopefully" coming back strong with a plan that doesn't rush to match what marvel has spent almost a decade building.

    The Movie was not perfect, but i fucking loved it. It was fun.

    A good example of something going through crap and come out great would be shankshaw redemption. Well not the movie itself but Andy Dufresne, crawling through 500 yard of crap to come clean on the other side with the Warden's money he helped laundered.

    Man, I fucking hated this movie. Harley and Deadshot were pretty dope, but I couldn't have cared less about anything else that happened. It is probably the best DCU film at this point, but that is also like being the world's tallest midget.

    As a DC and Suicide Squad fan, I really enjoyed the movie. It reminded me greatly of how the Suicided Squad comics are set up, and I felt like I was watching a comic story line. I felt like the portrayal of the characters were mostly true to comic book origins, and the actors did a fantastic job of bringing characters that have never really been live action before to life. The plot of the movie, as well as some technical aspects, could have been better, but we have been told just how rushed the creation was. So all in all, to me, it doesn't really matter that the critics didn't like it, because as everyone has said, it was made for the fans, and as a fan, I loved it. I have plans to see it many more times, as well as own the DVD once released.

      they can say that they did it for the fans, but i seriously doubt that they did it for anything other than money and to not get buried by marvel, and theyre losing both fronts.

    They should just throw money at Christopher Nolan until he agrees to direct another movie.

    I'm still going to see it. I certainly don't consider Suicide Squad to be a movie to define the movie-going experience for me, but I think I'll probably still find it enjoyable. It's honestly hard for me not to like anything with Harley Quinn, Batman, Katana, and Joker. I'm a DC Fan, and still hold out that eventually they'll pick up their game someday.

    I'm going to assume that the critics' review were somewhat influenced by BvS. I myself just got back from seeing the film, and I thought that it was good. A film to last the ages? God no. A film to be just entertained by? It manages to hit that mark perfectly (at least for me). There were definitely plotholes and some lines that made me cringe just a tad, but there were also plenty of moments that I thought were cool. In all honesty, I think that this movie is more comic book-y than any of the other comic book super hero movies that have come before it, which throws points into both the pro and con columns. For just a movie and not a piece of art, it was great. Don't go in expecting it to change your life, and you'll have a good time.

      Have you thought about doing reviews? That was pretty damn good.

    Suicide Squad had a lot of problems, but I still enjoyed it more than any other superhero film this year. If I had to choose between this, or yet another formulaic light-hearted action-comedy from Marvel, I'd definitely go with Suicide Squad. Hopefully, Strange MD (a superhero medical drama, this has NEVER been done before!) will be a welcome break from the tired old Marvel formula.

    They probably cut all the Joker scenes so they can add them into the Blu-Ray cut.

    I really enjoyed Suicide Squad, and I was glad a lot of Leto got cut because /man/ do I dislike him. His Joker really turned me off. I was not a fan.

    We need a different way to rate movies, or we need to shut the hell up with the flame wars we create over them. Suicide squad and Ghostbusters are both successful in the box office so who the fuck cares about a critics rating, or online commentators so desperately wanting to see products they love fail?

    Its almost smart for movie companies to start making awful cringe trailers just to get "fans" to start shit talking on EVERY SINGLE PLATFORM THEY CAN. If not for the infinite verbal diarrhea, I bet suicide squad & ghostbusters would quietly fail. Thats how you boycott a movie, not by giving it free advertising.

      i think the movies were already bound to make some big money, i don't know how much the reviews really affected the amount of people who came to see movies like these. I believe people already were going to see popular franchises like these before the reviews came out.

      Ghostbusters is not successful in the box office. It has just barely made back its production budget and doesn't look like it's going to make much more. Add in the advertising budget and it probably won't even break even.

      Edit: The advertising budget is rumored to be around $100 million, so there's almost no way it will break even.

      Ghostbusters has only been out for 3 weeks and is yet to open in most of its overseas territories. Its actually in-line with what the studios projected (projected between £40-50 mil opening, which is about what it got), and is about on-par with films like Ant-Man and similar 'big but not too big' franchise films, so its likely to be a reasonable success. Probably not a huge one though.

      It's easy to like something when you go in with low expectations. That is why I enjoyed Cursed Child so much.

    I still dont understand how DC fucks up a movie they already had. The animated "Assault on Arkham" IS "Suicide Squad!" THey already had the movie! And it was damn good! They just needed to make it live action! Just follow the template they already had! HOw do they fuck that up??

    They said they cut out Joker stuff in the movie, so without spoiling it, can anyone say if a large majority of the Joker scenes in the trailer are in the movie

      A sizeable chunk of it, yeah. Most of what wasn't I can't mention without spoilers.

    Well, I thought it was not at all a good movie... but it was highly entertaining. Sometimes that's all that you need.
