Movie Review - Suicide Squad

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

Assalamu'alaikum, y'all!

"We're bad guys. It's what we do"
~Harley Quinn (Suicide Squad)~

I know this is almost 2 weeks overdue but I DID tell you that I'll make a review, didn't I?

Suicide Squad, the worst ever heroes. The hype was on for about 2 years. And you know what? It was all worth it!!

For those of you who watch The Flash and/or Arrow (the latter especially), you'll probably know of Suicide Squad or as it is known officially as "Task Force X". Deadshot (Will Smith), Katana (Karen Fukuhara) and Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) have made their presence known to non-to-novice comic book enthusiasts by appearing on television. Even Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) made a few seconds' cameo. Although, the other "heroes" El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), Slipknot (Christopher Weiss) and Colonel Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) made it known to others that they're part of the squad too.

Basically, the movie's about bad guys who are caught by an organization that deal with the worst criminals. Something bad happens, so Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), head of the organization known as ARGUS decide to setup the group of baddies in a project called "Task Force X".

Will Smith is proof that you just get better with age. His Deadshot portrayal is as badass a bad guy can be. Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn? It's just the perfect blend of hot, hilarious, serious and of course, CRAZY. And you can't mention Harley without mentioning The Clown Prince of Crime..............

Jared Leto played The Joker and I gotta be honest, I was really skeptical when news got out that he got cast as one of the most and probably THE most iconic villain in comic. BUT...with his screen time that I'd like to describe as "more than a cameo but less than a major role", I think he nailed it. I wonder what he can do if he'll be in the future Batman movie. Intriguing stuff, innit?

I know the film's got mixed reviews but most of them are on the positive side last I checked. And here's another one from me.

Guns blazing, bone-tickling and heart strings-pulling. I guess those are the words I use to describe the movie. Who needs heroes, huh? They can just do the good stuff. So find some people who can do both. That's the Suicide Squad alright. The story line builds up quicker and clearer than a certain other DC Comics movie that features a son of Krypton and a billionaire vigilante.


Will Smith's rugged acting, Margot Robbie's tension-defusing and also Cara as eye candy. Not to mention Jay being El Diablo and seeing Killer Croc on screen. The movie is one to watch.

I'll give an 8/10

On a much more depressing note, I've started my final year as a college student. That sentence alone pretty much says it all. I know, I'll miss it when I start working but everything's so hectic, it's insane. I feel like bashing my head through walls. Going back in the morning. I got some work to get done.

See you guys on the flip side!!

P.S: This week alone, 5 of my friends got married. One of them is my junior
