The Suicide Squad - Didn't Impress Me

Well, I just saw the trailer for James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, and it looks pretty underwhelming. Is this movie going to suck? Join me as I break it down.

      Here's the thing you have too remember: James Gunn is extremely good at pulling off the fake out. When we all saw the Guardians of the Galaxy's very first trailer, we thought it wouldn't be so good but it was, just ad you said. Hes not a cinematic messiah of any kind at all so don't take me wrong. I agree with 95% of what you've said here and typically your right about something like this. So I'm gonna reserve my criticism for after the movie comes out and bombs big time lmao.

      Try actually watching the movie before you decide you dont like it. This is just a review of the trailer not the movie. This isnt a comedy. You clearly dont know the charcters and dont understand comic book movies yet shit all over it anyways before actually seeing it which I find really weird. I have a feeling that some people will just automatically hate hate hate anything DC puts out no matter what before it even gets released.

    Yeah going to pass on Suicide Squad, mostly because of Harley Quin. I really don't like margot robbie's interpretation of Harley. Also I don't know why people didn't like Guardians or the Galaxy 2. I personally thought it was better than the first one, but that's just my opinion.

    You're wrong about Suicide Squad. It does suck, but it's on David Ayer not "studio interference". David Ayer was writing the movie as he made it and had no real idea what kind of movie he wanted to make....I know, I worked on it. It was an unfocussed mess that had a river of money flowing into it. Massive sets were built but they weren't really utilized. Everything was pieced together on the fly. The supposed extensive reshoots basically boiled down to the one fight in an the elevator and lobby. Nothing major changed, it was just a movie based on an idea rather than a solid concept or script.

Birds of prey come along aw boo hoo 😫 this movie is targeted audience are SJW . And then even SJW hated this movie it bomb in box office Then anouther suicide squad movie comes along . Aw it's to chill i hate it give me back the edgy version. How about you guys should up and make up your mind of what you want . Some times you guys really are no different than the SJW you love to make fun like how irionic .

    I agree with everything in this video. I wondered if I was alone. Guardians of the Galaxy was so good and James Gunn seems to know how to do an ensemble super hero movie, and I really thought this was going to be a slam dunk. But this trailer I found to be so unremarkable and I thought the jokes weren't funny more than anything else it looks like I'm looking at a movie the whole time. It's hard for me explain what I mean but some movies look like your looking at a set and some movies seem super believable. Harry Potter felt more grounded in terms of you forgetting they are on a set and those movies were pure sets. This looks like it's outside most of the time and it looks false. But maybe we'll be surprised and this will be good. But I'm not going to be on pins and needles for another year waiting for it. I did that for the first Suicide Squad and it was a bummer.

    What a waste of a stellar cast. Disagree about idris alba. Big will is washed up and frankly I dont think he is trying like he used to. John cena is hilarious and should be getting real acting roles. Harley Quinn's character is being handled horribly. Her story is that of a prestigious psychiatrist being enamored by the joker... She would best be used in a similar vein to how 'joker' was. A Dark drama. Her zany nature is despite her circumstance. Just being lol rawr so random is shit and just trying to appeal to my generation who will look back in ten years and cringe. Its shit. If somethings worth doing its worth doing right. But I guess james Gunn does have a taste for the underdeveloped. Wink wink.

    Saw the trailer and my reaction was like "WTF is this?" It looks bland and forgettable, I doult it will be a major sucess with such a bland trailer, its not exactly going to get butts in seats, I felt similar about Shazam, it just comes across as something that never should of been green lighted, its obvious no one at Wanner knows what to do with the DC characters, there is no plan, they clearly lack confidance in their people or they are hiring the cheepest and baddest writers around to write their scripts and hoping for masterpieces to be produced but all they keep producing is trash! The Snyder cut was a good, sure it might be extremely long but it was a good story in general, but my main beef with the DC EU is that Wanner have pretty much been in a blind panic since the first Avengers movie, instead of setting up the Justice League characters in solo films, they took the hop, skip and jump approch that resulted in them landing flat on their faces and just when they try and get back up and dust themselves off, they fall over, again and again! The reason Marvel suceeded was simply because they set out a road map prior and set up three primary characters before hand, well techinally four, but that up for debate and then united them with the surporting characters in one film, plus they also had some talanted actors whose names have become household names and forever linked to their respected characters, Wanner, they haven't been able to achive that with their actors because the movie they been in, haven't been that great and mostly forgettable.
