Suicide Squad- Geek Chorus #33

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad: DC finally learns how to have fun!

We love David Ayer movies. We looooooove DC Comics. Put ’em together, and we must get a perfect film, right? Given the roller coaster of responses to Warner Brothers’ latest entry to the DCEU (still don’t remember what it stands for), there’s a lot to dissect. Critics loathed it. Fans look like they had a good time. And the studio is rolling in that sweet sweet superhero dough regardless. Suicide Squad features a world coming to grips with the rise of superpowers and costumed vigilantes/criminals, and paranoia’s at an all-time high. The DC universe’s sociopath queen, Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) puts together a black-ops team of expendable, well, assholes to combat super threats to mankind. Featuring a hilarious ensemble team of Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courteney), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez) and more, this movie thrives when it focuses on its characters. Not so much when it tries yet another end of the world team up plot. Host Rob Dickerson and resident film expert Nick Wolf gush about and critique the polarizing action epic. And yes, we talk about the Joker controversy (get over it folks). Questions of the day: who was your favorite dirtbag in the skwad? Would the rumored director’s cut solve the pacing issues? Will anyone ever be happy with a Joker again? Tell us your thoughts, but the answers are Boomerang, maybe, and of course not, we’re talking about comic book fans!
