Review:

At this point, I’m not sure if DC deserves to have their movies reviewed. Unless I’m angry at them.

This is the second Suicide Squad movie and it has nothing to do with the previous one, only it does? This one has a ‘the’ in the title, which is the only different thing. This one is a much better story, but personally, I think the music in the previous one was better. That was the only good thing about the first one, though.

The Suicide Squad was the best DC movie hands down, but the bar was really low. It’s also the best movie to come out in 2021, but again, the bar was low. It was not, however, James Gunn’s best. Still, if he’s at the helm for the first time in a long, long time I have some hope in DCs future offerings.

4/5
