And I'd be cool if I had a posh accent.

David Ayer is rarely guilty of softening up his characters or resorting to cheap endearment devices to compensate for their bad behaviour. It's one of the things I like about his filmmaking. That being said, I don't know how much freedom he has on this project. Probably less freedom than he does on his usual lower budget non-franchise stuff. That shot of Smith hugging the kid makes me expect that Smith's assassin character will be sold with the "it's okay that he kills people for money because he just wants to see his kid again" approach. But I think you'll get a several legit scumbags on the team. I think there's going to be a lot of conflict and betrayal within the group.

Harley Quinn, I'm not sold yet. I'm straining to hear a high pitched nasally, Long island accent and it's nonexistent. Sure, she looks good but she doesn't feel like Harley Quinn to me. Perhaps I should stop comparing her to the Harley Quinn in the Arkham game series but this is how she should be.

Is her transition not complete from Harleen Quinzel, M.D. to Harley Quinn?

Holy crap that was a lot of quick cuts to digest.
I think it might look cooler than I anticipated. Agreeing with Maui...Harley Quinn seems to be the weak link though. They really held back on the Joker and his place in this Squad. Is there any doubt that he escapes by the end of this movie?

This looks more interesting to me than the Superman v. Batman film.

I'm still really curious to see who the Joker is. Is it THE Joker or is it someone else? Fan theory that would be intriguing if true.

Considering how much people have complained along the lines of "Superman is wrong, he wouldn't do that..." or "That's not Batman, Batman should be like....", I'm surprised nobody is commenting on (based on what we've seen) how that isn't really anything much like how Harley Quinn has ever been in the past.

i'm not super familiar with the Harley Quinn character, but from what little exposure to her i've had, i always had the impression that she was pretty disturbed and insane. that doesn't come across in the trailers for this movie. here she comes across more as a spoiled bratty bad girl type. like paris hilton with a bad streak. not the deranged lunatic i was expecting.

now excuse me while i go back to wanking off to her.

there's been a "movement" (I don't know if that's the right word or what, but it's the one I'm using dammit) in DC to sort of redeem Harley Quinn from her BTAS origins. Sort of like how they made Catwoman less of a criminal and more of an anti-hero following Batman Returns. So it doesn't surprise me that they are making her less deranged and more cute insane

I'm expecting more crazy violent evil from her. Not really getting it from her here I have to admit. Will Smith doesn't seem villainny enough to me either, and I believe he's an actor that can do it. Just want to see him cross over more into that type of guy than the trailers are giving the impression of so far.

seems like this filmmaking process is becoming the norm rather than the exception, especially for these type films. big budget films used to be like a gourmet meal (or at least like a decent chain restaurant dinner). now they're like spam, some kind of mass-produced, homogenized product squeezed out of a tube where you can't even tell what the original ingredients are, or where they came from.

BvS, Avengers, X-Men, the 2nd Spiderman series, even Rogue One now.... it's not even like going from a single chef to too many cooks in the kitchen... more like the kitchen has been replaced by a giant factory assembly line. no wonder these movies all look and sound and feel the same.

Man, why do the reviews for this movie have to be so horrific? Even Jared Leto has commented in interviews he is unhappy with all the scenes he has been cut from. I read his screen time is a total of 10 minutes. Are DC movies just doomed from the start?

I saw it last night. My disclaimer is that I went at the spur of the moment and missed a few minutes at the top of the film. For this reason I'm not adding it to my movie journal or giving it an out of 10 rating.

That said, yeah, tepid and underwhelming. But with some good pacing and laughs.

I think the villain was shown in the late trailers that I avoided watching, but to me this was the only element that the trailers didn't reveal. Otherwise there were really no surprises.

Slipknot is a joke of a character, brought in with no backstory for the sole purpose of proving that the neck-bombs really work. I guess that the "social justice" agenda in Hollywood is continuing to make progress, because the rule that the black guy always dies first is no longer the case. Now it's the Native guy. Jesus.

"SUICIDE SQUAD" PAYS HOMAGE TO CO-CREATOR JOHN OSTRANDER WITH EASTER EGG
Andrew Paul wrote:Although the original concept of a DC Comics' "Suicide Squad" debuted way back in 1959 within the pages of "The Brave and the Bold" #25, it was writers like John Ostrander that helped popularize the versions we're more familiar with through a late '80s/early '90s revamp. Inspired by films like "The Dirty Dozen," Ostrander introduced Amanda Waller and pulled together a team of C-list villains to undertake dangerous missions for the government in exchange for shortened criminal sentences. Ostrander would later write an additional eight-issue miniseries in 2007 alongside artist Javier Pina.

I felt like it had about the right amount of the Joker. Any more of him would've felt like a distraction from the story, rather than being part of the backstory of Harley Quinn.

You must get recognised now, but are you prepared for mega fame after Suicide Squad?
If you’re in this business, you know what you’re getting into. I’ve known it from being a kid and seeing it happen to my father. I’m sort of used to it because of that, so maybe it’s been easier. Then again, you never know if you’re going to see people outside your house. Weird things happen!

Suicide Squad: All you need to know
Suicide Squad picks up from a post-Superman world following the events of this year’s Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

How does Gotham win the city back? Easy – find the biggest group of psychotic killing superhero baddies around. Bust the Joker (Jared Leto) out of a psychiatric ward, free Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) from prison, and get assassin Deadshot (Will Smith) out of retirement.

Also featuring Ben Affleck (Batman, of course) and a host of other stars, Scott will fit right in. The film’s director has kept his role a secret, but describes it as a ‘very important part of the film’. It’s rumoured he’ll play someone we met in 2013’s Man Of Steel. We. Can’t. Wait.

I absolutely don't get the outright hate for this film. It seemed most of the casual to non comic book fans I've talked to love this movie. The super hardcore fans just seem to be parroting back everything the critics are saying. And it feels like they're doing that to either seem relevant or smarter than they actually are.

Adam Glass's New 52 Suicide Squad was a gem of a book. One of the few NEW 52 books i stuck with. This film very much pulls from that series. That being said, I loved this film. Even more so than Batman V Superman, which I really, really enjoyed. I had my reservations about Will Smith playing Deadshot, but sans it just being Will Smith, they got Deadshot pretty spot on. Same with Harley. Actually going with the full love story between her and the Joker and not copping out to have her be "Independent" From her "man" was a beautiful touch. Joker and Harley's relationship is more than just the abusive one that the cartoon played out. It's all over the map, but there was always that little spark that she got to the micro cosmo of humanity left in him. And going that route worked for me big time. And, FUCK, this film NAILED Amanda Waller. Goddamn did she leap off the page.

Yes the film is a little loopy, and being a film buff, i can see where there were some last minute changes by the editing, but the film as a whole is a great ride.

One last thing. What the film really sold me on was the DC movie universe. I really like that unlike Marvel, were we are being spoon fed the introduction of each character as their first day on the job, Suicide Squad had some fantastic moments showing that there was all kinds of crazy shit going on before Superman showed up. Magic and mete humans were well before Clark revealed himself to the world, and I ABSOLUTELY loved that. The history that Batman touched on in BVS was very much touched on here. The moments between Batman and Deadshot were pure comic book.
