suicidesquadSUICIDE SQUAD

“Sure, the film throws in some contractual cameos and obligated pandering, but the majority of its running time is injected with the fuel of screw-it-all abandon.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“SUICIDE SQUAD had the ingredients to be something truly unique; but once again it seems the suits at Warner Brothers and DC have no idea how to make their own characters work on screen.” – Tim Estiloz, El Mundo Boston

“What does writer/director David Ayer do with all this? He gives us extended fight scenes… What he does not do is give us any reason to care about the results.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“What prevents SUICIDE SQUAD from being as epic as it should be is the story and the film’s overall structure.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“…a two-hour chronicle of how terminal illness consumes its victims and overwhelms their loved ones, a portrait of what it is like to be helpless, in visceral terms, to your own mortality, and what it is like to watch the person you care about most in the entire world die slowly while you can only stand and watch.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
