Suicide Squad is a film where a secret government agency led by Amanda Waller recruits imprisoned super-villains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for leniency, and saving the world from an unknown but powerful threat.
Now that bit is mostly what Wikipedia told me. Not clearly enough to understood what everyone is so excited about. Here’s a much simplified take on the very complex and thrilling, fantasy-crime film releasing in India on 5th August 2016.
First and fore-most this is an antihero film. That’s right, while this may appear as yet another superhero film releasing this year it is anything but! This film instead should be treated like a breath of fresh air.
Remember the mega huge success ‘Deadpool’ had? Why do you think that happened? It’s because people appreciated a break from the mainstream media. Suicide Squad has a promising start to bring similar results.
Now let’s talk about the cast- This amazing supervillain team DC picked out.
We have Will Smith who plays deadshot who if you haven’t guessed yet has a pretty great shot. He’s an assassin and seems like a pretty great dude in all even if he is… well a villain. He’s trying to be a better man for his young daughter though and cue the awe’s. He also has a great partnership with Harley Quinn.
Which brings me to the next character Harley Quinn played by Margot Robbie. Beautiful, crazy, manipulative Harley. She was a former psychiatrist which might help her manipulations? Of-course it is her love story that makes her character all the more endearing. Her mad, passionate love for the Joker.
The Joker is most probably the favourite character in the film. Why? Like Harley he’s crazy. Only on a different scale of course. But Joker’s awesomeness can’t be described by words. We’ll watch how Jared Leto plays his role, but by the way he put it as a “beautiful disaster of a character” it seems like he’s got his role down.
Then there is Joel Kinnaman who plays ‘Rick Flag’ the battle field executive. Jai Courtney who plays ‘Boomerang’ another assassin. Jay Hernandez who lays El Diablo (he has cool fire powers!) Adewale who plays ‘Killer Croc’ (enough said) and Karen Fukuhara who plays Katana.
Now if the cast hasn’t peaked your curiosity yet then we have Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne as eye-candy and they play Lt. GQ Edwards and Enchantress respectively. So even if this article hasn’t convinced you to why the movie is hyped up so much at least you have some idea on what the movie is about when your friends go crazy and drag you to watch it with them.
