Suicide Squad review.

Okay, it`s basically a rip off of the "Magnificient 7" motif ...bad guys coming together and doing good, yada yada, redeeming themselves on a certain level.  I think Shakepeare said there was only 7 basic story types.  And Hollywood satuated them all.


All that said Suicide Squad is a damned good movie, go and see it.  That Harley Quinn♥ is some hot stuff!...well, she`s a great actress and had some funny lines and made the movie. 


Even though I recommend the movie, it sort of breaks that old comic code of putting a bad guy in a good light.  And this movie has shades of gray, no one is the "good guy"...characters that ultimately "save the world" are murders and deserve the death penalty.   I just wonder what it says about society and where it`s headed?


In the early 90`s a football movie called "The Program" came out and in had a scene where football players layed on the centerline of a highway in the dark to prove their toughness as car whizzed by.  Disney cut the scene because kids emulated it and some were killed...yah no kidding a stupid stunt like that would get you killed.   But as I left Suicide Squad and kid in the parkinglot was copying the Joker`s hideous laugh.  And the Joker is portrayed as extremly dark in the later DC comics...not exactly Cesar Romeo anymore.

Ha.  A good high school or little league game is more enjoyable for me anyway than watching cry baby millionaires play their games....that said, I`m a Twins fan   🙂
