Let me tell you this up front, I'm not a fan of DC. I think Man Of Steel is a huge snooze fest and I actually fell asleep during the most important part of Dawn Of Justice (ya know... the part which Batman versus Superman actually happens). So I wasn't too interested in all the hype regarding Suicide Squad. I thought it would be another snooze fest and a waste of money; I even joked to my husband that I needed to take a nap and had a cup of coffee before we went to the movie so I wouldn't fall asleep.
And boy was I really wrong. The movie was kind of fun. Kind of. And the musics are hella good.
Being the non-DC-fan that I am, there are a lot of things that I still don't understand, like who this Katana woman is and why she joins the squad. The story is not quite clear for non-fans like me. I read from an article that there are a lot of deleted scenes that will be available on the DVDs/Blue Ray releases, so I guess I just need to wait for it then? Talking about marketing strategies... *rolling my eyes*
Anyway, I'm fairly concerned about the depiction of Harley and Joker's abusive relationship. Why do people like it? I feel so uncomfortable watching Harley jumps into a pool of chemical waste just because Joker tells her to. It can send a bad message to young people, can't it?
All in all, I'd give Suicide Squad 3.5 out of 5 stars for the musics, the improved jokes, and Harley Quinn. Margot Robbie is a queen and seeing her in this movie has given me an encouragement to go the gym because she is my #bodygoals :p
