Reviews of films
“Hello, my name is Johnny Cash,” he says.
When “Folsom Prison Blues” plays over bad guy Savant (Michael Rooker) throwing a bouncing ball about, you know you’re in for a treat. The Suicide Squad’s opening 15 minutes are extremely fast-paced, completely insane, and filled with so much violence and murder that even Tarantino would cover his eyes (while peeking through his fingers, of course). This establishes the tone for the remainder of the film; it does not slow down often, and it does not get any less gory.
There’s no time to think about what’s just occurred before you’re struck with a narrative twist and a deft shift into character introductions. Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), the creator of Task Force X aka The Suicide Squad, introduces us to our new characters: King Shark (Sylvester Stallone), Peacemaker (John Cena), Polka Dot Man (David Dastmalchian), Ratcatcher 2 (Daniela Melchoir), and Bloodsport (Daniela Melchoir) (Idris Elba). Waller informs her team that a research facility known as Jotunheim is located on the island of Corto Maltese, and that it must be invaded in order to wipe all evidence of a “Project Starfish” before it is utilized to destroy the planet.
In terms of storyline, it’s your standard comic book plot: evil people seek to destroy the planet, and a band of super-beings is sent to stop them. There’s nothing noteworthy about it. What makes James Gunn’s view on the world unique is his perspective on it. Warner Bros. granted Gunn complete creative control, which turned out to be the greatest move they could have taken. Despite being a film about really wicked and disgusting people, it’s pure Gunn: anarchic, violent, hilarious, and even downright pleasant at times. Gunn was able to bring the Guardians of the Galaxy to life and make them into a lucrative franchise in their own right, despite the fact that they were not well-known when their film was announced. He’s doing the same thing here. Gunn’s ability to make you care for ridiculous characters with little to no fan following (think Polka Dot Man) is really amazing and unrivaled. The vilest of the bunch, John Cena’s Peacemaker, even had you thinking “I sorta like this guy” at different times during the film before making you detest him again. No one else could have played that part, to be honest. Cena does a fantastic job. He’s flawless.
While Gunn allows each performer their day to shine, Daniela Melchoir’s Ratcatcher 2 and David Dastmalchian’s Polka Dot Man are unquestionably the standouts (apart from Cena) (I know, but hear me out). Ratcatcher 2 is a brand-new character developed entirely by Gunn, and she is at the center of the film. Her kind and innocent personality provides a balance to the evil characters surrounding her, since she is the only one of the gang who isn’t a cold-blooded murderer. Daniela does a fantastic job as her, and I hope we get to see more of her in the future. Polka Dot Man has never had a large following; he’s seen as a cheesy figure who’s a bit of a joke. In this film, he is undeniably scary, yet you still feel sympathy for him and begin to cheer for him. Polka Dot Man may finally receive some well-deserved attention following this film, thanks to David’s surprising portrayal of the character. Maybe not, however. But really, as someone who wasn’t expecting much from his character, I was pleasantly surprised by how wonderfully he was portrayed. Sebastian, Ratcatcher 2’s pet rat, and King Shark, who are both flat-out cute and lovable from the start, get honorable mention. (After all, who doesn’t like adorable animals?)
If you like Gunn’s style of directing as much as I do, you’ll like this flick. With this one, he went all out. The colors are bright, the shooting technique is over-the-top comic book, and the scene transitions are creative; for example, there’s a mound of trash that spells out “Jotunheim” when the camera passes over it when seen in a particular manner. A fist battle mirrored on Peacemaker’s helmet before switching to viewing the fight in real time is my favorite camera viewpoint; it’s simply beautiful. This film is well-edited, but as I already said, it goes fast, so keep that in mind while watching it. It doesn’t detract from the film, but it is startling at first until you adjust to the speed. You also don’t need to have watched Suicide Squad 2016 to appreciate this film; although it is set in the same world, it is not a straight sequel and can be enjoyed on its own. And, although I don’t want to make a comparison between the two films since they’re so different, I will state that this one is objectively superior than the 2016 version.
Overall, The Suicide Squad is a crazy, over-the-top comic book film that will appeal to a wide range of viewers. But, as a friendly reminder, this film is classified R, and it’s a HARD R rating, so I’d recommend leaving the kids at home for this one. You’ll thank me later, believe me. I’ve never been let down by a James Gunn picture, and this one is no exception. I really enjoyed it, and I’m sure you will as well.
Just keep in mind: don’t become too involved. Our “heroes” are salivating at the prospect of saving the world.
There is no one who is secure.
