Went to see Suicide Squad Thursday night, it was very good. Good story, good atmosphere, good acting. Okay, the dialog is a bit weak but the actors nail the characterization and hold the script up.
The critics and a certain subset of comic book fans dislike it; that mystifies me. A movie is supposed to be entertaining and I found it very entertaining. So much so, that I'm going to go see it again while it is still on the big screen.
It's dark, so it's not for everyone. But the comic has always been dark, even back when comics thought having Batman actually say "damn" was as dark as they wanted to get.
It may not be quite as good as "The Dark Knight" but it is the best DC movie since that one. Last movie I saw twice the week it opened? I don't remember.
