Don’t believe the negative press, it’s a good fun ride with strong performances, awesome characters and great moments for each character. Liam and I talked at length about the movie on Sequential Fiction Episode 38 – Suicide Squad.
There are amazing cameos, and a brilliant mid-credits coda that ties into Justice League out next year.
There were tons of scenes from the trailer that we didn’t see in the movie. From little things like a half burned Joker firing a gun to major set pieces like Harley tending bar that looked like a good character development piece. All of these little “flavour” pieces would have given the film a longer run-time, so I understand them being cut, but the bar scene in particular felt like it needed the bar tending scene to set the stage.
