Why watch this film?

The first 'Suicide Squad', released in 2016, was so controversial that even the director, David Ayer, went public to make it clear that the movie cut is not the vision he had for that story. Five years later it seems that Warner Bros. has learned the lesson: they gave total freedom for another filmmaker, James Gunn (from 'Guardians of the Galaxy'), to produce a feature film for the DC anti-hero group without any limitation from the studio executives. Far away also from Disney's reins and the need to do something more "family", the director goes to the limit of violence and acid humor in 'The Suicide Squad' - which, if it avoids the "2" in the title to avoid being seen as a continuation of a critical failure, it is also not exactly a reboot. What worked in the first movie is there, including Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman's Rick Flag and Viola Davis's Amanda Waller. To them, a cast of weight joins, which has names like Idris Elba, Jai Courtney, Michael Rooker, John Cena, Alice Braga and Sylvester Stallone, all in hilarious and shocking performances. The script is full of ups and downs, and boredom is certainly a word that does not match the story - after all, there is no shortage of action. Those who enjoy the mix between superheroes, sarcasm and anarchy, in the style of 'Deadpool', will love it.
