Despite a captivating cast including Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto, Suicide Squad never developed to it’s full potential because of the weak plot. The movie was not worthy of the exaggerated publicity that was given.

Suicide Squad is team assembled of the world’s most dangerous and incarcerated supervillains. A secret government agency, led by a ruthless high-ranking official, recruits the most powerful arsenal to be at their disposal. The team is sent to execute a dangerous black-ops mission to save the world from an apocalyptic threat of a supernatural entity. If the villains do not succeed, the government would not be found liable and can place the blame on the “evil” people. The team are not chosen to achieve, however, it is up to the villianaties to prevail over the seemingly impossible. Such events will develop in what would seem like a “suicide mission”.

The enticing cast and great expectations of the movie from the trailer were put to rest after the release. After watching the movie, I was shrouded with a sense of disappointment. The writer/director, David Ayer, created a movie that was very muddled and over-stuffed. “Suicide Squad” lacked momentum and would grind a scene to a half for a flashback. The scenes were very choppy, poses were struck, and the slow movement was misused.  Even though the structure of the film was poor, the actors’ portrayal of the characters were superior. The actors played their superhero roles excellently.

Suicide Squad was one of the summer’s best hopes in theatres. Each super-hyped superhero movie this past year left disappointment in their wake. Fanboys and fangirls everywhere were optimistic about this movie being of higher quality. The colorful posse of antiheroes seemed as something to enjoy watching, at least on paper. The movie was a disappointment and failed to live up to its hype.
