Suicide Squad Review - SBS

SBS: That is the Serious Question put to us early on in the new DC Comics ensemble action drama, Suicide Squad. It’s curly one to be sure, but we’ve ventured far enough into the comic book franchise universe by now to understand that Suicide Squad won’t be the kind of film that both asks and answers its own questions. Leave it to a future instalment to address the prospect of a politically radicalised ‘extra-dimensional entity’ (like that prefaced in a fleeting flash forward sequence within Suicide Squad’s predecessor, the gloomy Batman versus Superman: Dawn of Justice); this is the type of film where the central villain turns good people bad with a kiss.

The story is too old to be commented.
