I know this movie had appeared in the cinema a while and it might not be on fire right now but it was the only time I managed to watch it. I am not a fan of the characters and I met them for the first time through this movie - I’ve heard about them but didn’t actually see them, aside from The Joker and Harley Quinn, whom I  saw in the cartoons (ah, good times!).

I thought I should let you know what I think, so you could make up your mind in case you have any doubts whether or not you should watch this movie.

 

Title:  Suicide Squad

Stars: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jaime FitzSimons, Ike Barinholtz, Jared Leto

Duration: 1h 73min

Genre: Action, Crime, Fantasy

Movie rating: PG-13

My opinion: The story has potential, as it’s about a group of villains who are gathered to make a team (Suicide Squad as Deadshot later nicknames it). Some are meta-humans and there’s even a witch involved - which will cause some troubles, you know? I won’t give you any spoilers, so please, stay calm.

The movie was interesting, although there were times when everything seemed overly exaggerated, even for the fantasy genre. Moments that fall into cliché are also present, just like the ones that even if they try to give depth to the character, don’t appear realistic. It makes them seem shallow and silly.

I must admit, though, that at the end there was a twist. I found myself saying three or four times “Ah, I know what’s going to happen!” but I was wrong. It was a nice change.

Well, I definitely don’t regret watching it and I don’t consider it a waste of time either. It might not be the best movie I’ve ever watched, but be sure I’ve seen worse. Those who looked forward to it had had probably other expectations…

All in all, I liked it. I would give it a 7 out of 10.
