SUICIDE SQUAD = A REAL DC WINNER! READ MY THOUGHTS HERE...09:17:00
Good Morning Lovelies,
And how are we all on this sunny day? Well I hope! I am going to bring a little bit of darkness, with a huge hint of brightness as well, into your lives lovelies now. Yesterday I went to see Suicide Squad. After a lot of moments where I wasn’t sure if I should go or just wait and watch it at home, after a lot of critics panning it and not hearing much about it after that, I went and I LOVED it.
Introducing the characters from the get go, I loved that they were showing us that the people who were going to make the most impact in the film were the ones we knew well. Harley Quinn is now a villain we all love and Margot Robbie has made a character that is on another level. I actually have to stop myself saying I want to be her, as she is a villain. Oh who I am I kidding I want to be her! And I want to know Jared Leto’s Joker.
Other stand out performances that stood out had to be Will Smith’s Deadshot and Cara Delevingne’s The Enchantress. Smith is always an actor who knows how to lead the screen. He is a likable man in real life and that makes his characters on screen shine. Delevingne has presented a character in a way that lets her acting talents shine. At times I will admit that when the story went a little bit OTT near to the end, you could get annoyed with her character, but it does nothing to deflect her talents from being shown.
When watching Batman V Superman, I was completely overwhelmed by the way that the story had no plot to it. I could have walked out and gone to the toilet and been fine coming back. In this you have to stay just to catch all the fun moments. Each character is off doing their own thing even when they are together and that is what makes the story interesting. The back stories don’t drag into the plot and take over. They are placed in a way that makes you want to see them to find out a little bit more each time. You don’t get to a point where you wish that they would just stop.
My true love for this film though came from the soundtrack. As many fo you know I adore a good film soundtrack and this one has just that. There are so many songs that match the characters moods, scenes and experiences and they add to the adrenaline that you get from watching it. I can see Harley Quinn dancing to them, Deadshot becoming the group leader and the team taking down their enemies to a different song. Each one that makes you want to get up and dance. Although please don’t get up and do what they do to each song.
Overall though I think critics were too fast to judge this film. I am a critic and I know I can be harsh at times and it all comes down to personality but I honestly think the film is a bit of fun this summer. It is brighter and more joyful, which is weird when you think of the people in it, but it is. There is something about the squad that makes them put adrenaline in your bones, sit forward in your seats and not want to move (unless dancing) for a few hours. There so I think Suicide Squad is not a villain at the box office and actually a real winner this summer!
