The first reactions to The Suicide Squad at James Gunn have finally come online, and I am more enthusiastic than the other. Considered a reboot / sequel to David Ayer’s original 2016 film, Suicide Squad, Gunn’s new venture brings back to the public some familiar faces from the DCEU like Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, John Kinneman in those of Rick Flag e Viola Davis in those of Amanda Waller.
Many others, of course, have been discarded (you can find them HERE). In the new adventure Waller rounds up some of the franchise’s best antagonists for a dangerous mission in exchange for a discount on the prison sentence. Task Force X will have to destroy any trace of the Starfish Project, as well as, of course, try to survive.
The Suicide Squad (which you can also find on the cover of Best Movie of July) was born in a very complicated period for James Gunn. The director of Guardians of the Galaxy he received the assignment to write and direct the film shortly after being knocked out by Disney and the MCU. Eventually he was recruited precisely to continue his work with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but he did not shy away from the DCEU project.
And now, less than a month afterout in theaters and on HBO Max scheduled for August 5th, the embargo on the reactions of critics who previewed the film was lifted, and a sea of comments flooded the web. Here are a few. Jeffrey D. Lowe of the MovieRankings.net site tweets: “I got a chance to see #TheSuicideSquad a few weeks ago and my God, it was great. It literally explodes off the screen. You will love these characters. It’s epic, the action scenes are great. By the way, it absolutely deserves the R rating. Wild stuff. Guardatelo in IMAX!»
In the same tone the comment of reporter Drew Taylor: “#TheSuicideSquad is gloriously insane and so much fun. After seeing it, you will think you may have dreamed of it. Everyone is excellent and deeply committed to the script, its so unique flavor and wild aesthetic. I can’t wait to ride this roller coaster again. ‘
«#TheSuicideSquad is great! A mine of superheroes / comics with no holds barred “, tweets the film critic Fico Canciano. «Unpredictable in history, unique in style and full of hazards. It is also violent and fun. The action scenes are insane. Idris Elba, Margot Robbie and the rest of the cast are fantastic. @JamesGunn has done it again ».
Robert Garcia of Cinexpress describes it as «a perfectly balanced mix of blood, comedy and heart. @JamesGunn is a genius and takes full advantage of the R rating: this is definitely not a children’s film “, also revealing the presence of two post-credits scenes.
