    I thought this was great fun. I’ve liked but not loved most of the DCEU films to date and I think this is the first one I really loved. I didn’t dislike the first Squad film but it was a hot mess and I think I may even have fallen asleep for a few minutes in it. But this one had me roaring with laughter or shock every few minutes. And definitely didn’t see a few of the deaths coming, especially those near the end.

    People complain about Whedon's work on JL, but it only just occurred to me that the plot of The Suicide Squad is very similar to Serenity. You've got the misfit outlaw crew who discover that the government experimented on civilians, with a fanatical man trying to keep that info from becoming public, leading to a final battle involving both the military and the mutants created as a result of the experiments.

    With The Suicide Squad pretty much being the best adaptation of the team we’ve seen this far. What would you rank as the number two, three and so on?

    The Suicide Squad (2021)
    Suicide Squad Hell To Pay
    Suicide Squad (2016)
    CW Arrow episodes Suicide Squad (season 2) and Suicidal Tendencies (season 3).
    Batman Assault on Arkham
    Task For X from Justice League Unlimited


    My ranking:

    1. The Suicide Squad (2021)
    2. Suicide Squad (2016)
    3. Assault on Arkham & Hell To Pay
    4. Arrowverse episodes
    5. Task Force X (JLU)

    I’m glad they censored that for the people that enjoyed the family friendly movie.

    You say day, it was less than four hours. For me here in Germany where it started at 7pm, it was the way I spent my Saturday evening. ;)

    Finally caught this. A complete blast, funny and crazy and over the top in all the right ways. One of only four really good DCEU movies to date, along with Wonder Woman, Shazam! and Aquaman.
