Suicide Squad will go down as one of the most promising and most infuriating films of the year, and possibly in the superhero genre. It’s a not a film you can easily dismiss because there’s plenty of potential at every turn. But by the same token, that potential is constantly trampled by atrocious editing, haphazard storytelling, and tonal inconsistency that make for a maddening experience. The film struggles with how to relate to its female characters, how to include the Joker (Jared Leto), how to bring the team together, and the soundness of their very existence. It’s a movie where you can see the competing visions between writer-director David Ayer and the studio and the result is a film where everyone loses, especially the audience.
