The Suicide Squad (2021)

Supervillains Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Peacemaker and a collection of nutty cons at Belle Reve prison join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X as they are dropped off at the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.

This is going to be a shorter review than normal because there is little good to say about THE SUICIDE SQUAD (2021). Yes, Margo Robbie is good as usual. Yes, the soundtrack is good. And, yes, there is a hint of a parody of America’s foreign policies. But that’s it. Most of the acting is over the top, the story couldn’t get any thinner, the dialogue and humour are cheesy, the violence is excessive and gratuitous, and given the poverty of originality, it’s way too long and tedious. Give it a miss!

Rating: 1 out of 5.
