8.8

"The team gets in-your-face introductions and things just grow more mental from there (...) Suicide Squad is an excellently quirky, proudly raised middle finger to the staid superhero-movie establishment".

"When Suicide Squad gets it right, I like it a lot, and it gets it right often enough (...)What it does is make a case for how much fun this universe can be when the characters are embraced fully and when a filmmaker seems excited by the opportunities afforded by those characters".

"Writer-director David Ayer skillfully sets up the film, introducing each of the crazies with caffeinated comic-book energy (...) But their mission is a bit of a bust. The stakes should feel higher".

"Like 'Deadpool' earlier this year, it?s entertaining insofar as it allows the characters to crack wise and act out, though they can only go so far within the confines of MPAA guidelines and the rigid DC mythology".

"Loaded with jokes but devoid of wit, 'Suicide Squad' is dead on arrival (...) Instead of making the picture more exciting, the cluttery blur of the editing flattens it out?it?s like watching helicopter blades whir for two hours".

"It is wacky, funny, and action packed and it doesn?t care what the A-list superheroes are doing off to the side of the screen. That makes it a lot more fun and it has a liberated feeling while still being part of that larger cinematic universe".

8.0

"Filling its entire super-team with previously unseen antagonists, Suicide Squad represents a Flash-speed sprint of a catch-up for the rapidly forming DC Cinematic Universe. And, on that front at least, it?s a real hoot".

" 'Suicide Squad' promises madness, and a dense downpour of madness is what it delivers. I could have done with more fun and more lightness of touch".

"These heroes may be bad, but their movie is even worse (...)'Suicide Squad' never has the courage of its convictions, it doesn't own anything".

3.0

"Instead of just one scene of plot-stopping fan service, Suicide Squad delivers an entire first act of soul-deadening exposition (...) From the first scene to the last, it?s an absolute mess, one whose harried pacing, jumbled narrative, and blaring soundtrack of radio hits suggests a desperate post-production attempt to reconfigure what Ayer got on set into something palatable and poppy".
