Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Viola Davis, Pete Davidson, Jai Courtney, Jon Cena, Peter Capaldi, Sylvester Stallone, Taika Waititi, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Joel Kinnaman, and Nathan Fillion. A large cast filled with well-known names and actors. Grabs a moviegoer’s attention. Especially when it comes to a superhero film. You go into it hoping that the notoriety of the cast lives up to the expectations. With The two Suicide Squad films, they have managed to fulfill the hopes set out in front of them.
People have always liked to root for criminals gone good. Baddies who turn over a leaf to walk a straight and narrow path. While that is not exactly the case here as the bad guys are being forced to tow the company line they are acting for the common good. Against their own natures.
This is their second mission on behalf of Task Force X and its leader Amanda Waller (played by Viola Davis). The group of criminals who are meta-humans is sent to a South American island known as Corto Maltese with the goal of finding the location of an evil scientist called the Thinker (played by Peter Capaldi). This band of misfits is thrust together with the former leader of Task Force X as they fight to stop something which could end the world as we know it.
Zany fun best describes James Gunn’s second go round with the Suicide Squad. There is an on a knife’s edge type feel about the film which you don’t often find. Absurdity abounds here. It is not your typical superhero film. Yes, there are a plethora of action/fight sequences that will come at you fast and furiously. Loads of fun if you are into that sort of thing. Besides the fight scenes there is plenty of humour folded in. Just like comic book characters brought to life.
Besides the frenetic pace, a highlight of the film is the visuals. Every frame is filled with many brightly coloured things to cast your eyes upon. It is like an advertisement for the value of HD and why home theatre sound can bring up the level of a movie.
