No flips for you!
Well, that was a mess! Best DC flick yet. Discuss.
Oh, yes, no prior viewing needed.I haven't seen any of the other Suicide Squad movies. I tried to watch the first one and found the Joker and Harley Quinn's relationship so problematic that I was disgusted. Not to mention, the movie just seemed awful.
Is it okay to watch this one without the others?
It's a setup for a tv show on HBO maxNote to those who have not seen it: there is a scene after all the credits, but it's mainly setting up for a different (non-Suicide Squad, I think) movie.
I only knew king shark other than Rick and Harley, and that was due to his appearance in the DC animated movies. The others were a complete mystery to me.Or, maybe, it's using characters I'm not familiar with so it doesn't grate on my like watching Superman get mangled.
They had a line that he feeds on the mental energy of the people he enslaves, and another that they're effectively dead once taken.I only knew king shark other than Rick and Harley, and that was due to his appearance in the DC animated movies. The others were a complete mystery to me.
Like I told my brother in some ways this one was better than the 2016 one, while in other ways that one was better.
As for Starro, he doesn't eat he enslaves people.
"Have you come to save me from that madman?! Thirty years he's kept me here...tortured me...had his way with me!''" way to go guys you pissed off an alien who was pretty chill with just drifting in space.
Cut the president sequence!? It was one of the best of the entire movie! TSS did seem a little long but thats pretty much all comic book movies now. Pretty sure she had the explodo chip like the whole squad did. Guess Gunn left out an insertion scene which would have made the movie even longer.It was a decent flick. I thought it ran about 30 minutes too long. Harley still grates on my nerves. The entire sequence with the president could've been cut for time - and just started with her captured by the general.
Also, does Harley not have an explosive chip or tracking module? Was that explained in a previous movie?
I did enjoy polka dot man that was an excellent character. However, I thought Capaldi's character was disappointing. With a character like The Thinker you'd expect some type of double or triple cross to complicate the plot. All Thinker does is info dump and get killed...Capaldi and polka dot man were the show stealers! I didn't know anything about polka dot and i hope we see him in future comic book stories.
