‘Suicide Squad’

suicide-squad-movie-2016-posterSprawling and anarchic, director David Ayer (Fury, End of Watch) has perfectly captured the essence of the band of superheroes who make up the squad.

Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus) is riveting as the crazed Harley Quinn, Will Smith (MiB I-III, Ali) solid as Headshot. Add a superbly deranged Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club, Requiem For a Dream) as The Joker and the band of comic-book nihilistic antiheroes are magnificently ever present on screen.

But the story is one huge misstep – it’s a mess. Lots of energy from the intrepid band fizzles into a dull mishmash of oldhat stories and scenarios. Get the witch and save the world (I mean New York – again). Boring.

    It was quite the mess. But honestly, it was one I enjoyed. Nice review.
