So, where do I start? Suicide Squad hasn't exactly gone as planned for Warner Bros (at least not critically) - the film currently sits on less than 30% on Rotten Tomatoes, word of mouth among "professionals" is not good and there is a very definite split between fans and critics. Or at least that's what fanboys would have you think.
Regardless of how you feel about the story-telling, the acting, the directing or the editing, Suicide Squad actually is made for the fans, as David Ayer says. That's not to say it isn't supposed to be analysed or criticised (because all art invites that inherently), but rather that it's positively drenched in Batman and wider DC comics lore.
