The following is not going to be a review. Yes, I will be discussing characters, story structure, and prose in editing as best as I can, but this is not going to be a review. There will be no pretending that there is an artistic bone in this movies body. There will be no debating whether or not this is anything else other than a product by committee. “Suicide Squad” is the third film in what Warner Bros. has dubbed the DC Extended Universe, a series of movies that have declared war on Marvel Studios and their highly successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. Our first foray into this series was the underwhelming “Man of Steel,” followed by the brain dead “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” earlier this year. Now we have “Suicide Squad,” which is the worst of everything we've come to expect from this type of film making, genre, and thought process from studios. This is not a review; this is a public warning.
Parents, there a lot of violence, language, disturbing images, and sexual content. Recommended for ages 16 and up.
