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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Loose & shambled characters with a thin plot; providing a predictable end-result.

Yeah expected more and it didn't produce, the ending was a bit bizarre only wanted to see it because of Will Smith and he couldn't carry it off unfortunately did like Jared Leto as the joker though

I think that this movie wasn't as bad as people (and by people I mean critics) said it was. Yeah, it had it's flaws but every movie does. The only problems I had w/ the movie were the random song starting & the brief appearances of the Joker

So Jared Leto said he based his Joker on David Bowie? Purring like a cat and wearing an oversized jacket does not make you the Thin White Duke or a member of the Cat People dude. Get off my F**king screen and let the adults talk. Speaking of the adults, nice of them to show up dressed up, but who was supposed to bring the story?

I really wanted to like it, but it was awful. Zero storyline, too many characters, and poor writing. Feels like Deadpool came out halfway through shooting and they decided to try and copy it - and failed.

Why has this movie been slammed by movie reviewers i see on rotten tomato critics give it a 26% and an Audience score of 73% which i would think is fair for this movie. I think if its not deep and meaningful and boring in parts the critics wount like it.

I went to Suicide Suad expecting a lot of Margot Robbie's butt, a terrible performance of the Joker and an unfortunately good performance of Harley Quinn. I felt the opposite of this though, that Jared Leto did a good job of the Joker, and that the failures of the character were to do with the writers rather than him. He did an amazing job of the behaviours...

Written and directed by David Ayers, Suicide Squad is the is the third movie in the DC Cinematic Universe. Suicide Squad stars Will Smith as Dead Shot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as The Joker and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. After the events of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) plans to assemble a task-force...

For the most part, I had a great time watching Suicide Squad. A visually spectacular and entertaining supervillain flick. A huge improvement over Batman v Superman. Jared Leto, Will Smith and Margot Robbie are fantastic. The soundtrack is amazing. The PG-13 (M) rating takes away the impact of the violence, and the tone completely changes in the second act...
