Suicide Squad

A bit of a mess

What happened?

Well, i finally got round to watching the Suicide Squad on DvD (i did not go for BluRay, but the cheaper by far DvD). It started off alright - i liked the character introductions and the use of Ben Afleck as Batman - it worked. Then the plot started to go a little off and a little skittish. Enchantress was let lose - and as someone who could teleport anywhere very quickly, the only way to stop her was to stab a heart??! Sounds very dumb to me. But this is a superhero movie, so expect big plot holes.

I felt there were too many characters for the film to carry, and some were totally pointless or rubbish - looking at you Killer Croc and Boomerang. Maybe if they reduced the characters, concentrated on just 2 or 3 and had some other than the Enchantress - this could have been fun.

The Joker was really good, and interactions with Harley were great. I would have been a lot happier just to have these two in the film, evading the Batman.

All in all it was an OK film, one i don't think i will rush to see again.

My Rating: 4 / 10
