Suicide Squad | Ratings & Reviews

"What’s made it to the screen as Suicide Squad could not have happened without Marvel. This DC property has prior super-pics all over it as it strives to achieve similar results. At its core, there’s a Dirty Dozen cannon-fodder mission movie, and a focus on villains that hasn’t been explored elsewhere. Sadly the whiff of Marvel-wannabe desperation means one can just about see the notes in the margins - needs more Guardians of the Galaxy music cues here; funny, tonally inconsistent Deadpool graphics in this bit; Avengers banter, more Avengers banter."

"The year's most muddled piece of storytelling."


"On paper, this could have been the antidote to an increasingly codified strain of comic-book movies, but in the end, it's just another high-attitude version of the same."


"Starts off flavourful, turns rather bland. This Injustice League jaunt proves that DC is still a long way behind Marvel for on-screen action."

"A twisted B-side to some of the slicker comic book movies."

Time OutTime Out

"A so-so, off-peak superhero movie. It chases after the nihilistic swagger of "Deadpool" and the anarchic whimsy of "Guardians of the Galaxy" but trips over its own feet."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"It's a clotted and delirious film, with flashes of preposterous, operatic silliness."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"A concept in search of a story worth telling."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"A puzzlingly confused undertaking that never becomes as cool as it thinks it is, Suicide Squad assembles an all-star team of supervillains and then doesn't know what to do with them."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Feels like its been micro-managed to within an inch of its life."


"Like Avengers Assemble forced through a Deadpool mangle, Suicide Squad gives new life to DC's big-screen universe. So bad-to-the-bone it's good."
