One of the better movies in the DC Universe (DCU). But we expected that from writer/director James Gunn. The movie has plenty of humor and charm mixed in with over the top, grotesque violence that will leave you going, “Ohhhhhhhhhhhh-no he didn’t.”
Probably the single biggest failing of the DCU is their abysmal portrayal of villains. The first Suicide Squad is a great example. The villain was laughably lame. James Gunn played it safe and created stock villains but did it in a creative and fun way.
The antagonistic relationship between Bloodsport and Peacemaker gave plenty of good laughs. The choice to use Sylvester Stallone as the voice for King Shark was obvious but brilliant. Needless to say, Margot Robbie was again perfect as Harley Quinn.
I believe Margot Robbie is a more perfect personification of her superhero character than any other actor. There are a lot of actors who have really nailed their characters over the years. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and Christian Bale as Batman all come to mind as owning their characters as better than anyone else could hope to achieve. But no one could hope to pull off Harley Quinn like Robbie. Feel free to argue that with me in the comments below.
About The Peetimes: I added an early Peetime at 31 minutes only as an emergency in case you can’t wait until the 2nd Peetime. I think the 2nd Peetime is best. You won’t miss any action.
There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Suicide Squad. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
