Simply put… I LOVED IT! Suicide Squad is a delightful mash-up of chaos, driven by characters that you can’t help but like and root for even though, as you know, they’re the bad guys. Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is exactly the kind of crazy everyone was hoping for, and Will Smith’s Deadshot is the most fun we’ve had watching Smith in years. The rest of the cast also does a fantastic job, and while the script takes the viewer on an unconventional roller coaster that includes quite a few “snap scenes” to fill in the background of its characters, it works because overall the film is a disorderly collaboration of joyful entertainment!
