James Gunn managed to create a movie that simultaneously introduced a dozen new characters whole still making you feel like you've known them for a long time. The Suicide Squad is amazingly action packed, gruesome, endearingly emotional, and dabbled with horrific wtf moments. It was a unique and captivating experience that somehow managed to keep surprising and superceding my expectations. The number of times I thought, "man I did not see that coming" was surprisingly high. I also loved the casting, visual effects, musical choices, and overall emotional feeling that this movie had. Definitely recommend for action and super hero fans

If I could give it zero stars I would. This movie is simply awful. It's nothing like the original. Story line is subpar. Save your money. Nearly everyone in the theater was disappointed.

Movies great on its own but I was not prepared for how gruesome it is through out the whole movie. Nothing like the first movie.

Action packed yes! But as a whole no good. Wish I didn’t spend $70 to take two kids to see it. Should have watched it at home on HBO. Would have hated it the same but I would still have the $70.

DC Comics misses the mark AGAIN!! This movie is worse than the first suicide squad. The writers and producers seem to have NEVER plugged their noses into a comic book. It’s not that hard! This is the last time I’ll pay to watch any DC comic movie other than Batman or justice league

The suicide squad is james gunns version/take on the villain/anti-hero task force x storyline and it does pretty much what its supposed to do, at times its very dark, comedic, full of action, slow burns, twists and theres enough blood and gore to satisfy all of the fans who wanted the first film suicide squad 2016 to have it. Without spoiling anything theres a ton of unexpected character deaths but that doesnt takeaway the creativity and variety of character development. Go See it, just dont take the film too seriously. I give it a 4/5, Only problem is the trailers are very misleading vs when you actually go see it.

The movie was good, the characters and their back stories, but a lot of gore, scary scenes and jump scares. Leave the kids at home for this one, the first Suicide Squad movie is nothing compared to this.

It is an average movie, better that what DC has put out in the past but that’s not saying much. It’s a little funny but most of the jokes are worse than other James Gunn movies like Guardians of the Galaxy. If you’re considering watching this in theaters over HBO max don’t it’s not worth it. Overall this movie is the definition of average and will be forgotten in a few months.

The most fun and least depressing superhero movie in a very long time, Gunn’s deliriously ultra-violent “The Suicide Squad” wears the yoke of its genre with a lightness that allows it to slip loose of the usual restraints, if not quite shake them off altogether.

It's the kind of filmmaking that rewards returning fans while being accessible to new or casual viewers. As a result, The Suicide Squad is a delicious, deviant and delightful watch for everyone.

At times, The Suicide Squad feels less like a movie than a mission statement from a director. Behold, look what I can do with a budget and all the comic book characters I can play with. But, the unexpected heart at the center of the film, a sneaky anti-imperialist bent, and Gunn’s wild visual leaps make The Suicide Squad a bloody, gory delight.
