Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad

Action, Adventure, Comedy

A secret government agency recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency.

The critical consensus

Like Avengers Assemble forced through a Deadpool mangle, Suicide Squad gives new life to DC’s big-screen universe. So bad-to-the-bone it’s good.

Starts off flavourful, turns rather bland. This Injustice League jaunt proves that DC is still a long way behind Marvel for on-screen action.

The latest addition to the comic book genre is darker, meaner and more violent than Marvel’s offerings – but not quite as fun.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 02/08/2016

By the final reel, the Suicide Squad members are behaving little differently than any other super-heroes. This surely defeats the entire point of the movie.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 02/08/2016

Despite the best efforts of its cast, DCs latest entry into the overcrowded superhero cannon is a tedious, lacklustre affair.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Nikki Baughan, The List, 05/08/2016

It’s the latest comic book wheeze: an all-villain fighting team. But too many crooks spoil the plot.
