Here’s a first for everything, we’re doing a movie review. This one is going to be loose, but also enough to have an analytical and critical take. That’s what I am going to do. I am going to give you a short, brief review about any box office releases. For this one, it’s going to be about James Gunn’s new film, The Suicide Squad. Not to be confused with David Ayer’s Suicide Squad from 2016.
Guns, Ghouls, Demons, Aliens, And Space Conquerors
The film’s plot doesn’t follow up to the 2016’s film, rather it’s like a fresh start. Except some of the characters that you’ve known from that film, well, they don’t stick around for long. The obscene starting pretty much tells you the kind of movie it’s going to be. Gunn doesn’t hold back when it comes to making a gross, bloody, comedic film. Every characters, either they are aggravated, talking off each other or become airheads. They kill people, a lot. Nothing morally specific, they just do.
TSS is all about the characters. Actually, the plot, the DC universe has little bearing on this movie since it is all about the characters just doing what they do best. Be the absolute worst criminals out there. There’s a lot to enjoy because there’s a thing that James Gunn does when he shows someone like Savant. Who obviously has hardcore skills after his introduction, loses his mental balance when the ensuing silliness that involves people dying occurs.
When it comes to the writing, it is a far better, more fleshed out story than 2016 Suicide Squad. When it comes to the characters, James Gunn has brought more substance to them, enough that you actually start caring about them. It is more funny, jacked up, and rambunctious. In a lot of ways, it is better than David Ayer’s movie.
Having Fun Yet?
But by judging on its own merit, the film keeps up the excitement only up till the 2nd act. That’s where the film kind of gets a bit slow, as in it loses steam just a little bit. But it eventually pays off when you reach the final act. In a complete, explosive fashion, the
heroes villains triumphs. Of course, people died, but that’s part of the fun.
Also, this movie does hard R like no other. It is obviously taking queues from Deadpool, but pushing it a bit further from there. Lots of bloodsplatters, might want to check your appetite before you watch this film. But overall, it’d give Suicide Squad a go. First movie of ours gets a seal of approval for good content.
