Suicide Squad is the latest DC comics and Warner Brothers movie to get critically panned as a mess trying to accomplish way too much while accomplishing nothing. WB gets their hooks into the movie looking for immediate profit on a DC universe scale, altering David Ayers’ original ideas, while DC has their say, and ultimately you end up with a bunch of bad ideas mushed together to make a super bad idea. Jared Leto as the Joker, a bunch of villains no one’s ever heard of, an ensemble cast before any of their characters have been introduced… suicide squad should probably refer to the producers. The movie will make a ton of money because everyone loves Harley Quinn, and more so when it’s mostly just Margot Robbie’s ass in the center of the shot for half of the movie. It may not be a great movie, but a broken clock is right twice a day.
Suicide squad as a solution to criminals might not be a bad idea given the latest police shooting involving an unarmed black guy. In one of the most damning videos yet, cops are seen wildly shooting at the perp’s car getting closer to killing each other than the criminal. Multiple camera angles are provided from body cameras, dash cams, and everyone is finally held accountable… except the guy who actually did the shooting. Apparently his body camera wasn’t working at that moment when he shot the guy. What are the odds of that happening? About 100% if you’re paying attention.
