Movie Review: Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad: Figuring they're all expendable, a U.S. intelligence officer decides to assemble a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission. Now armed with government weapons, Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and other despicable inmates must learn to work together. Dubbed Task Force X, the criminals unite to battle a mysterious and powerful entity, while the diabolical Joker (Jared Leto) launches an evil agenda of his own.

Rating: ★★★★☆ (4.5 out of 5)

Review: SUICIDE SQUAD IS SO LIT, I SWEAR /inserts sparkles and hearts and glitters/

I'm not really the type to watch superhero movies, to be honest. I haven't even watched any Superman movies or Batman movies, or Superman vs Batman, or whatever else. I did watch some Iron Man, Captain America and Ant Man, but that's it. I didn't plan on continuing with the movie series. So when I was suggested to watch Suicide Squad, I wasn't thrilled, but I didn't reject it idea.

Boy, I'm glad I watched it. I have never loved villains (as heroes) this much before. When Deadshot was introduced, I can't help but be in awe by how cool he was when he assassinate people. His skill is a bomb! But I am so much more in love with Harley Quinn (I'm straight, don't worry. Even Harley can't change that♡ She's definitely the epitome of a gorgeous villain. And her quirkiness, her cheerful voice, and just everything about her was exciting to watch.

I just love her relationship with Joker a.k.a Puddin'. Despite me not liking Joker much, I love Harley and Joker's relationship so so so much. They actually looked adorable together, even with the craziness going on around. It's fun to watch Joker being so protective over his queen. The other villains were cool too, like Diablo and Katana (is that her name?), and it was nice to see their teamwork. Suicide Squad can be a #squadgoals, without having to risk dying, of course.

The story plot was quite a killer, I wouldn't mind rewatching Suicide Squad again at any time. It shows a lot of betrayal and loyalty, one of the reasons why I love it to bits. Plus, it's rare to see Cara Delevingne being the bad guy, but damn, Enchantress was really mind-blowing. She looked stunning after she gained power from her brother. If she wasn't the most evil one, I probably would have liked her more.

All in all, I'm very satisfied with Suicide Squad. I do admit that there's still a lot of uncovered truth between the characters, like how they end up becoming villains, but I guess those will come in Suicide Squad 2? Who knows, because obviously the story didn't just end here.

Till next time ♡ Love, Aera
