Based on its massive box office over the weekend, chances are strong that you’ve seen David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad. And based on how everyone is screaming about it, chances are just as strong that you have an opinion about it.
I’m not sure what to make of Suicide Squad, a movie that feels compromised from frame one, constantly confused about what it wants to be. I’m not sure if its uglier elements are intentional or the result of too many cooks not seeing the forest for the trees. I’m not sure we’ll ever know exactly what went wrong here until someone from the production decides to speak up in the future. Because right now, this is a baffling misfire of a movie with a few interesting highlights.
