David Ayers’ Suicide Squad is the next chapter of the DC Expanded Universe following Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. It really does break my heart to give Suicide Squad an awful review but it is absolutely not a good movie. Now, is it the worst thing made this year, no (Independence Day: Resurgence I’m looking at you!). Is it bad enough to avoid a viewing in theaters, absolutely. It’s really too bad to see such an great performance by Margot Robbie go to waste on a bad film; and yet I’m curious to see what might have been with the different edits left on the cutting room floor…
