Suicide Squad gets mixed reviews

Another month has passed in a blink of an eye. Now it is September which means we are one month closer to Halloween and I think its safe to say we know what most girls are going to dress up as, Harley Quinn. If you do not know who Harley Quinn is, she is one of the main characters from Suicide Squad. Suicide Squad is a Marvel movie directed by David Ayer, that released August 5th 2016 starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, and Viola Davis.

Viola Davis who plays Amanda Walter works with the White House and has the brilliant plan to hire the “bad guys” to be the heroes of the city when there is trouble since Superman is dead. Typical, as she created the project x, trouble arises in the city causing an immediate get together called Suicide Squad. Each character had a talent that made them special. For example, Will Smith played Deadshot. Deadshot was a man who never missed a target.

The one reason Suicide Squad was such a big hit is because of the main characters The Joker and Harley Quinn. The Joker and Harley Quinn shared a unique romantic relationship. According to the movie, Harley Quinn was the Joker’s psychiatrist and ended up falling in love with the joker. The joker then questioned how much she really loved him, asking if she would do anything for him. Harley being crazy in love, jumped into a huge container of acid that turned her crazy. The mix of romance and action excited many adolescents including myself.

However according to Rotten Tomatoes the average rating was 4.7 stars out of 10.  Personally, I would rate the movie 8 out of 10 stars. I would rate the movie so high because of the consistency with the action, humor, and romance. Most DC movies focuses on a hero and villain but this movie did not just focus on action. This movie told a story that was different which made sitting 123 minutes enjoyable.  I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good action movie!
