If there is a DC Comics super team that is the polar opposite of the Justice League, it is certainly the Suicide Squad. They may not be nearly as powerful, or nice for that matter, but done properly their stories can be very compelling and entertaining.
So does the film version starring: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, and Viola Davis get the job done?
Yes, they did a fairly good job capturing the various characters IMHO. Critics be damned I liked this movie!
Deadshot was a badman.
Harley was mad as rass!
Joker was also mad, and scary, and... Joker.
Viola Davis is Amanda Waller. She embodied that role, which reminds me of Anthony Hopkins with Hannibal Lecter, and may not be a good thing...
Now of course there are some weak spots in the movie (Diablo played by Jay Hernandez is NOT one of them). The weakest character came from Cara Delevingne, who cannot play a heterosexual female in a relationship, neither can she act convincingly, period.
QBF Rating: 3.5/5
