Consensus: Suicide Squad boasts a talented cast and a little more humor than previous DCEU efforts, but they aren't enough to save the disappointing end result from a muddled plot, thinly written characters, and choppy directing.

Based on the screening I attended, I can attest that audiences seemed to genuinely enjoy the jokes and get swept up in the action sequences.

If I have not yet convinced you of the movie's astonishingly slipshod quality, I'm unlikely ever to do so.

hile it's not perfect, Suicide Squad is very good and definitely worth catching... It's a film with confidence and swagger, a film in which the sharpness of its dialogue is matched only by the coolness of its (very loud) soundtrack.

This is what happens when the comic book fanboys have taken over the asylum. It is damaged goods from the get-go, the kind of film grown in a petri dish in Hollywood.

Christian Science Monitor

Writer-director David Ayer doesn't have the right graphic technique for a comic-book-style jamboree -- he's strictly a noirish-pulp guy -- and the characters, all of whom are promisingly introduced, fizzle fast.

Suicide Squad shows all the signs of a movie subjected to heavy studio interference-terrible pacing, horrendous editing, uneven tone.

To say that the movie loses the plot would not be strictly accurate, for that would imply that there was a plot to lose.

Regrettably, the film's place-setting opening lays the scene for a different, more exciting film that never really unfolds.

Somewhere in that mess is a film, possibly a good one. As presented, however, Suicide Squad is a wasted opportunity.
