Hello Puddin’, today I am going to talk about the new Suicide Squad movie. I went to see it in XD Atos 3D, meaning great sound and great image. This movie is based on the DC Comic, the government gives a team of supervillains a chance at redemption. The catch: their mission will probably kill them all. It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

I can not stress how much I adore this movie, I loved it before I even saw it. Why is simple, when I was a small kid I watched batman the animated serie and I fell in love with Harley and the Joker. This movie features….Harley and the Joker! Still I want to push my love aside and give you all a good review about this movie. I will try not to spoil to much but I have some things I want to discuss about Suicide Squad. This movie was so hyped by media. Amazing fan merchandise, great trailers and amazing cast. Also if you make a trailer with bohemian rhapsody you are setting it up to be amazing.
Now, I do know that this movie gets loads of hate. Because it had a story line that was all over the place, it had Enchantress that people seem to hate and people expected more joker. Also there was the ‘hate’ about the new style Joker. Let me start with saying that many people bitch about superhero movies and me personally I feel like there should never come an end to superhero movies. If you are a true fan I am pretty sure you will like the movie. With the tree ‘flaws’ that I named I can relate that people find it all over the place. In my humble opinion this movie just showcases a lot of backstory and builds up for hopefully individual movies. I love how it features parts that happend in the comic and gives us a real life image. One of those moments was when when Harley plunged into the container with chemicals, transforming her into the Harley she is now. Btw the same chemicals that made the Joker, the Joker. An other thing that people seem to hate about the movie is Enchantress her role, some blame Cara. I personally blame the rushing. The Enchantress should have gotten a solo movie in my opinion. Give her a movie where we see the complete transformation from June to Enchantress. We never had time to love June because we only saw her become Enchantress. Also I personally hated Rick Flag, he had no character. A solo Enchantress movie could have giving us a relationship from start to Suicide Squad. I would have loved that because then it would have given the audience the chance to love June, to root for her. Now AND BIG SPOILER I did not care that she died and I cared even less when they found out that she was still alive. It could have been a great moment but I gave very little. I did cry a little when Harley found out that the Joker survived!
A lot of different characters can be seen in Suicide Squad. I am going to run my favorites down and tell you a bit about The Squad. Let me start with the Joker. Seeing as he gets so much hate. Heath Ledger is the golden standerd to many people and they did not like the fact that Jared Leto took a different route with the Joker. Me personally I love the development of the Joker, from the Cesar Romero who played the first joker to Jared. Cesar went for the silver age vibe of the Joker a more joker-ish prankster. Then we got Jack Nicholson, one of my least favorite jokers. He was more Tim Burton like. And I adore Tim Burton but more for a Johnny Depp. Then we got Heath who did a more maniacal joker. [I almost wrote magical.] And now we had Jared. Jared went for it, almost speaking in an orgasmic way. He was truly mad. People say that he took elements from the joker in the animated movie the Killing Joke. I did not see that movie so I can not give my verdict on that. But I loved his fascination with Harley but I perhaps wanted to see more of their relationship in the movie. The joker was cut from a lot scenes but the scenes he did, he was amazing. Again let me pitch the idea, a Harley movie with a lot of Joker. Where he can show his toys.
Enchantress is one of the characters that has an amazing design, great costume. But the character is so missing a back story that gives us more then a quick rundown. I wanted to know more about her, how she lived her life before Enchantress took over June’s body. Also her romance with Rick Flag I have no idea who Rick Flag is, just that suicide squad decided to shove down an other romance down the movie. There was so hate concerning Enchantress her outfit. In the comic she wears a green corset and green pants and has a fancy green cape. In the movie she wears a sexy black metal bikini and then transforms into a priestess bikini situation. I personally would have loved to see an adaption of the green outfit, give her a corset and green leather. Also a cape would be amazing.
Harley is a fan favorite. But I do wonder is Suicide Squad Margot Harley a favorite or Harley as a whole character. Because Harley is more then a hot babe who adores mister J. She is a strong character who does the right thing even when she is a badass. She stopped fighting the black canary when she found out the black canary was pregnant. She told Docter Fate that some people did studie for their title. All comic related things that the movie does not highlight. But it did show us Harley who fought for her squad, who had passion for others.
The movie has everything. Parts that made me cry. Parts that made me laugh out loud. Yes it was all over the place, but it set the stage for so much more. The sound was amazing, the costumes are amazing and I loved the acting.
