The Suicide Squad

The Suicide Squad ★★

There were certainly parts I enjoyed, and the inventiveness and execution is well worth merit, but the movie just wasn't for me. I don't like the Deadpool-like humor that a lot of R rated stuff is leaning toward, like Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, that feel like it wants you to laugh at gruesome stuff. It's better than the previous Suicide Squad if for no other reason than Jared Leto was not involved in any way, plus the expanded role and impact of Robbie's Harley is appreciated, though not enough to make me like watching the movie. The ending was fun, always great to see a giant starfish attack a city, and I really liked the commentary, but I just didn't vibe with the movie. I blame nobody except myself, and I guess Warner Bros.
