The Suicide Squad (2021) movie. Taking a break from directing Marvel’s thriller movie, James Gunn is making his first DC in ‘The Suicide Squad, a kind of re-enactment of the highly acclaimed David Ayer but financially successful ‘The Suicide Squad’ released five years ago – never mind the fact that there are actors who played their role in the first movie (Colonel Rick Flag of Joel Kinnaman, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller, and Captain Boomerang of Jai Courtney).
The Suicide Squad (2021) Action Movie
The Suicide Squad is by no means a sequel or a direct sequel and looks exactly like a stand-alone movie. Personally, I would like Gunn if he chooses to make this a reality because restarting, restarting, whatever you want to explicitly is not necessary. Or maybe it’s just me because the first ‘The Suicide Squad’ wasn’t as bad as they say.
Indeed, the first movie suffered from a few shortcomings, namely a poor choice of written characters. But it does have its moments, especially a well-planned song, with Margot Robbie and Will Smith both seen as Harley Quinn and D Deadshot respectively. Too bad the last one doesn’t come back from James Gunn’s version because of the controversy.
Instead of returning to Will Smith’s Deadshot, Gunn at least took the initiative to introduce Idris Elba as Goldspot, who also likely had the same ability to record a world-class player. In this reconstruction in 2021, Amanda Waller appointed her to lead a campaign to find the evil scientist called Thinker in the fictional Latin American country of Corto Maltese, which specializes in Project Starfish research. And again, these are just some of the goal-setting shareware that you can use.
Joining Bloodsport on a mission includes a team of oddball characters, starting with the Peacemaker (John Cena) and Ratcatcher 2 (Daniela Melchior) costume, who can communicate and control mice.
There are also others who include Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian), who wears a funny costume and can shoot brightly colored dots, and finally, Nanaue (portrayed by Sylvester Stallone), who leads and discusses White Shark in a superhuman humanoid body with a strong desire for -nom-nom of human flesh.
Getting James Gunn on the board of the co-op movie as ‘The Suicide Squad’ however is a good decision, given his previous experience of making such films in the first two ‘Guardians of the Galaxy. You also find and embrace her B-movie sensitivity in all its R-rated glory. One who is violent, sweet, and vulgar.
Gunn, who also wrote the essay, had a field day injecting as much irreverent and evil pleasure as possible by neglecting. The opening series involving the first Corto Maltese-led band to enter the sea is one of the best examples here, complete during the WTF era (note the self-proclaimed T.D.K. character played by Gunn’s best friend Nathan Fillion).
All the way to tell ‘Dirty Dozen’-like men-on-a-mission stories often hits a few bumps here and there, with a movie-length of 132 minutes extending too long for their benefit. Strong speed can do the movie a better favor. The needle soundtrack, meanwhile, was supposed to be right in Gunn’s wheeled room surprisingly not remembered at this time.
But if you look at any of these shortcomings, the ‘Suicide Squad’ remains better than the 2016 David Ayer version. The action is well-planned with a sufficient verve (a detailed sequence in which Harley alone departs a small army is worth mentioning here) while special effects are not in the mind as I would have expected a comic book movie these days. Speaking of the latter, the credits should go to the seamless CG character of Nanaue with extended effects – a heavy ending.
The ensemble cast is also excellent, where Gunn makes good use of the fine conversion of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn while Idris Elba pulls up a thrilling performance like Bloodsport. All the others like David Dastmalchian and Sylvester Stallone both brought in great games like Polka-Dot Man and Nanaue respectively.
Let’s not forget about John Cena, who plays the role of Peacemaker, and Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher 2, when the latter presents a brutal movie in some way the heart and heart that is so much needed. Although Viola Davis Amanda Waller has spent most of her time in the mirror in the control room monitoring her team’s work, Gunn still gives her enough space to shine through her authoritative role. And as in Gunn’s movie, his regular collaborator Michael Rooker is portrayed with a memorable cameo as an unhappy Savant. The Suicide Squad.
