Suicide Squad had very few redeemable qualities

Forums - Movies Discussion - Suicide Squad had very few redeemable qualities

I was coming into this thread to dispute that fact that it had any redeeming points.... but reading the OP I see you meant it in a bad way not a good way... carry on.

That said I was shocked that Will Smith was semi enjoyable in this role but I think that is just basically because he was the only character which was almost fleshed out enough to make him a full movie character all the rest of them just seemed like a mess of footage from random clips found on the editing room floor, was awful to watch.

Not sure if it makes sense.... kind of like imagine a really bad performance... but imagine it in a show where all the other actors are dead... laying around him on stage just... being dead, now the bad performer doesn't seem so bad anymore does he? That is Will Smith in Suicide Squad for me.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

I enjoyed it



Yeah, Joker isn't supposed to love harley, she's a possession to him, and she's not supposed to have empathy, she's a narcissistic sociopath riding Joker's lead.

The whole movie felt disjointed, and I finally found out why yesterday. Apparently, they thought the movie sucked, so they had the guys who made the trailer recut and re-edit it. That's why the whole movie felt like a trailer.



They didn't do enough to make me give a damn about most of the characters and too much about the whole move was just laughable.

Jared Leto put his co-stars through and that's what we got?



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

My cousin has been telling me to watch this. And sometimes she disagrees when I find something interesting(shows, movies). Now I question her tastes at all.

Maybe I'll just watch this when I have time to kill.

I enjoyed it, not the best movie ever but entertaining while you watch it.

I don't understand why ppl would expect characters to be "fleshed" out in a two hour movie, this is not a a tv show with multiple eps and seasons to do that, its rather dumb to expect that really.

The biggest and only major problem with this movie is that it's not rated R an R rating would have solved most problems. The SS would have seem more needed in an r rated movie cause instead of fighting black bubble wrap zombie things ,they could have just left them as normal lookig ppl being used by the enchantress magic.
The magic being so strong that punching and trying to knock them out didn't work, only killing them worked which would have ruled out the regulars heroes like batman etc being of much use hence you need these bad guys for the job. Also it would have added a much need umph in the action sequences seeing the SS really cut loose.

To be honest I don't even know why Harley Quinn is even in the movie. Is she supposed to be a trained martial artist?

You really kind have to stretch believability to have her in the group as she has no physical powers whatsoever and isn't really even supposed to be trained to fight as far as I know.

Harley Quinn is in the movie cause she is there in the comics thats the only reason they need.

Thats like asking why is Hawkeye in the avengers and why is he using a stupid bow and arrow and not some gun or other powerful weapon which we have seen shield has, answer he is in the comics and the comics he uses a bow and arrow case closed.

How often do movies fully "flesh out" characters thats not really a thing movies do often, the majority of movies gives you are character a situation and you roll with it.

Personally, I don't need the characters to be fleshed out but I want them to be like their comic book counterpart, have a purpose and a place in the movie and do something. Like Katana and Croc - they did nothing on top of their motivations not being clear. The sheer amount of inconsistencies in the movie baffled me.

Yeah but even Hawkeye can use a bow & arrow ... Harley Quinn's "ability" is what exactly? Looking sexy? She's there to make a certain section of the comic nerd audience giddy, I get that, but it just does sometimes stretch believability, a 100-pound woman would get ripped in half put into that situation.
