What the critics are saying about Suicide Squad
After the lukewarm reviews that greeted Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the DC Extended Universe really needed to turn things around with Suicide Squad—and the studio's latest installment in its big build-up to Justice League seemed like it might be able to restore some of its lost luster. After all, the story offers something of a fresh twist: unlike BvS, which boasted prototypical good guys Batman and Superman, Suicide Squad offers up a bevy of baddies dragooned into attempting a supervillain takedown. So is the film a deadshot that hits the mark with a healthy mix of frenzied fun and crazy characters, or a killer croc of you-know-what? Here's what the critics have to say.
