Movie Review: Getting the Squad Together

           I love a good comic book movie. I also love a bad comic book movie—that’s why I’d never make it as a movie critic.

Luckily, Suicide Squad is a good comic book movie—but not great. Character motivations and plot can be murky, and as usual there are logic questions.

So why did I like it so much? My usual reasons: Characters and humor.

Rumor has it the movie was originally a lot darker, which to me is the kiss of death for a summer-type popcorn flick. It’s people in costumes breaking things; if you’re not having fun, what’s the point? But in the finished product, the humor works for the characters.Collapse )
