One could be forgiven for not recollecting that on financial figures, Warner Bros and DC’s anti-hero blockbuster Suicide Squad was an immense commercial success. On the critical spectrum, the film was lambasted by critics and director David Ayer even expressed his own regrets on the final product.

Film Review: Suicide Squad (M) (USA, 2016)

The DC Comics Extended Universe (aka DCEU) has a bit of catching up to do if it wants to level up to its competitor Marvel. Even though DC has some of the more renowned superheroes in its deck of cards – Superman and Batman being two aces – it hasn’t had as much luck with its film adaptations recently of those characters. So taking a gamble, they opted to go with showcasing some villains instead. The result is Suicide Squad, a film about the worst of the worst who thankfully turn out to be the best choice.
