The reviews are in for the new DC Comics movie and it doesn’t look good, see what the critics made of the summer blockbuster.
Suicide Squad never has the courage of its convictions — it doesn’t own anything. At best, Ayer rents some pre-existing pop iconography and charges us $15 to watch him take it around the block for a spin. Forget the “Worst. Heroes. Ever.” These guys don’t even know how to be bad.
David Ayer’s film may not always work, but when it does, it’s a perverse delight.

Suicide Squad is… okay. Robbie and Smith are good but the rest of the movie kind of meh. loud music, no plot, horrible villains. …
