After strenuous pre-release promotions over a period of time here comes one of the highly anticipated movies of 2016, Suicide Squad. It looks like the final outcome has been stuffed well with an engrossing screenplay, a compelling background score and an engaging performance from the actors.
Here are five aspects that I found interesting in Suicide Squad.
5. Showcasing The ‘Good’ Side Of ‘Bad Guys’
In spite of the members of the Suicide Squad being bad, they have their own work ethics and a concern for their fellow member. Nonetheless being ‘Bad Guys’ they neither tend to turn evil nor join hands with the evil forces that are terrorizing planet earth.
4. Extended Cameo Of Joker And The Restricted Cameos Of Batman And The Flash
The role of one of the principal pre-release promo materials of Suicide Squad, Joker is nothing but an extended cameo in this comprehensively striking end product. Nevertheless, Jared Leto has made his mark in the history of DC comic book movies by rendering a terrific on-screen display of the ever famous fictional supervillain, Joker. The gadget friendly Batman, presented by Ben Affleck, plays a limited cameo by helping out Amanda Waller to nab Deadshot and trap Harley Quinn. A glimpse of The Flash is shown in a scene which features his confrontation with Captain Boomerang.
3. Engaging Screenplay And Riveting Background Score
A lively briefing of the movie’s plot and the primary characters involved in it is done at the beginning of the movie via the ambitious and the underhanded character of Amanda Waller, which has been played by Viola Davis. This spirited narration sets up a track for the upcoming roller coaster ride that the movie is set to offer the audience. Numerous scenes have been filmed to justify the abilities of the protagonists, for example, the scenes where Deadshot stamps his authority over shooting and the shots where El Diablo showcases his ultimate ability to muster flames.
The movie has substantial subplots in its narration which have been deftly handled and there are considerable Goosebumps generating moments placed at regular intervals. Following suit of the trailers, teasers and the promos of Suicide Squad, the catchy soundtracks have been skilfully utilised in the movie as well.
2. Eye-catching Battle Between The Protagonists And The Antagonists
In a flick like Suicide Squad involving metahumans as primary characters, when there are 5 protagonists with striking resemblances and impressive abilities then the antagonists should be possessing eye-catching demeanours and powerful potentials to render a tough fight to the protagonists. When this requirement is packed well, eventually the end product is sure to strike a chord with the viewers.
In Suicide Squad, we have got the ancient evil force Enchantress and her brother Incubus, ably enacted by Cara Delevingne and Alain Chanoine, pitted as antagonists against the interesting combo of protagonists involving Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Col. Rick Flag, Captain Boomerang, El Diablo, Killer Croc and Katana played by Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Karen Fukuhara respectively.
1. Animated Portrayal Of The ‘Bad Girl’ Harley
After watching a lot of self-composed female superheroes, it is really refreshing to watch an eccentric and a vibrant performance from the ‘Bad Girl’ Harley. The transformation of Margot Robbie from that of an elegant psychiatrist, Dr. Harleen Quinzel, in Arkham Asylum to Joker’s quirky and a super sexy love interest, Harley Quinn is simply astounding.
The movie ends with the Joker rescuing his accomplice, Harley Quinn by invading the place in which she has been imprisoned. Thereby, a sense of curiosity tends to generate over the future plans in DC Extended Universe after Suicide Squad.
