The Suicide Squad

I really liked this film from beginning to end.

The Suicide Squad

Let me begin by saying that you movie fans are not likely to see a more profane, violent yet wildly funny film than The Suicide Squad. On top of that, the soundtrack will at times tempt you to leave your seat and dance in the movie aisle!

This very entertaining film, directed by James Gunn, involves a group of incarcerated supervillains being sent by the U.S. Government to seek and destroy a life threatening weapon held on a jungle island known as Corto Maltese. Their success will determine if they regain their freedom.

Col. Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) is assigned to control our groups behavior. It becomes almost impossible when he is leading Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Peacemaker (John Cena), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Ratcatcher (Daniela Melchior) and King Shark (voiced by Sylvester Stallone) among others. Not all of them live, so be prepared for the carnage that engulfs some of our heroes.

Elba, Cena and Ms. Robbie dominate this engaging film at every turn. In particular Ms. Robbie is unforgettable. Even when covered with blood, she may be the most attractive ass-kicker in the history of film.

Keep two things in mind. First, I’ve talked to a number of people who have seen The Suicide Squad and they all loved it. That includes men and women.

Second, I saw the movie at the Museum IMAX in downtown Indianapolis, my favorite theater. With only one other person in the audience, I kept hoping that Harley Quinn left the screen and sat next to me. I told friends that if she pulled a gun and kidnapped me, wait 2 days before reporting it to the police!
