So, THE Suicide Squad is the sequel to Suicide Squad. Which may just be the most confusing sequel title since The Fast and The Furious went Fast & Furious on us. No spoilers since the movie literally came out but I will say –
I liked how this movie gave Harley Quinn the permission to actually kill people. I really liked Birds of Prey, except for that fact that they wouldn’t let her kill anyone. She’s a deranged psychopath, she kills people. Let her. And this movie did! Yay female power!
This movie also took the heavily criticized “half of the first movie is character introductions” comment seriously. The intros on characters in this one are very very speedy, which I appreciated.
There were some good laughs and an adorable rat sidekick. But overall, after I got done watching I just kept thinking “what did I just watch?” It’s better than the first one, but that one didn’t have a very high bar. Probably won’t be checking this one out again but it had its moments? Cinematographly speaking, it’s beautiful.
