I feel so sorry for Jared Leto and Margot Robbie… And ofc for my self as well. A review has been made for the Suicide Squad movie since it just hit theaters recently, or at least the press release. (So sad that their many scene previews on Youtube did not make it to the final product)
I had so many hopes for the final product since there was too many trailers, teasers, and interviews for the movie. This whole grand propaganda made me feel a little bit down since from personal experience whenever there is too much noise about something and from so many months away you can expect a movie of a less magnitude.
What i got from the review is that the making and editing of the movie made it lose all its attractive and radiating light. To put it another way, the poor making of the scenes, the simplistic story line, and the non-existence of character development were the cause for the movie direction and writing of an action thriller to be spoiled by the hands of David Ayer.
Moreover, there is the gossip about the different ways that this movie should have been cut, including David’s cut and the DC studio’s cut. Somehow, the common ground that would fit a little bit the expectations of fans needed more money for further photography. Therefore, unfortunately enough, constructive criticism loses to the money making decisions of the cinema business.
Apart from the failure of the editing and unneeded soundtrack that filled the blanks of the movie, it has been said that director Ayer did not give much material to work with while directing the scenes so the whole performance and dialogue lacked a lot of its genuine and aligned content with the context of the extraordinary DC universe.
I have really wished to see Jared’s version of the Joker and Margot’s version of Harley Quinn within a more serious and faithful movie version to the grandness of a complex and dark twisted action thriller. Not to mention how the writing of this movie ruined both of their unique characters, and even their relationship as a whole thing apart. It was simply played out as a very shallow highschool teen boyfriend girlfriend. So sad…
Anyways i am still planning to watch the movie whenever i would have the chance to and also will hope for a comeback in the upcoming Blu-Ray cut.
