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.

Loved it. Very much a representation of what the DCEU could be with a distinct storyline that tell different stories of many characters while also leading toward the same story. Hence #RestoreTheSnyderVerse

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.

Not only does it find the nastily enjoyable vibe that eluded its predecessor, but it also tells a story worth following — while balancing its most appealing character with others whose disposability (they aren’t sent on suicide missions for nothin’) doesn’t prevent them from being good company onscreen.

Margot Robbie and Idris Elba shine, balancing humour and edginess in a blockbuster studded with visual wonders and inspired set pieces.

After that thrilling opening act, The Suicide Squad settles down into a more conventional (if still satisfying) superhero adventure. The story flags a little, and some tricky editing in the final act designed to keep up the energy just makes the climax more confusing. Still, the opening is a blast — and the whole thing looks like a Fellini movie compared to Suicide Squad.
