Se magari avessero affidato la regia a qualcuno con un briciolo di personalità, degnandosi di scrivere una sceneggiatura con un minimo di voglia e un briciolo di attenzione per i personaggi, o anche solo se si fossero decisi a fare un film veramente sporco e cattivo, forse, e dico forse, magari ne sarebbe uscito qualcosa di almeno lontanamente decente. E invece.
Truly ugly in every sense of the word - it's impressive how repulsive the film makes casually interesting characters. It's a series of checklists: these songs, these cameos, these "diversity" characters. (Big quotes, there.) It could have worked, if the foundation wasn't the scripts of Predator, Last Tango in Paris, and Escape from New York thrown in a blender and covered with cotton candy that fell in the dirt.
Just an awful one. The soundtrack is superb, the cast is great and the first 5 or 10 minutes makes you think of how great the movie is. But then you only see calm walking in the heart of Armageddon, pour action scenes and a comics like characters that can not act at the same time resulting in even more stupidity. With only Harley to make fun of it's better not to spend time on this crap.
I talked my brother into waiting until it came out on HBO, and he was glad, because it did not meet expectations. There's a glut of these films out there, because of the popularity of the genre, and so inevitably the product gets watered down. Don't bother with the extended version. Margot Robbie makes a better Joker than Leto. He should have been written out. The villains were an unremarkable. A swing and a miss.
Aside from the casting of Harley Quinn, the colourful cinematics and several action scenes, there isn't much positive to say about SUICIDE SQUAD. Many scenes, including the introductions, are poorly developed and edited. Characters, like The Joker, are misused or wasted with the big bucks in mind. Yeah, my desire to be coherent in writing this mini-review is just like the film: absent. 1.5/5
