Suicide Squad (on DVD)

Suicide Squad
[DVD Suicide] 

I was really excited to see this in the theater after watching the trailers, and it was not disappointing. For those unfamiliar with the film, it’s set in the DC comic book universe, with the Joker, Harley Quinn and other villains who had been caught and put in jails around the country. They are sort of released to work as a team for the U.S. Government to bring down the antagonist. What I liked about it was that each character got their own moments and we saw their own backstories so you could choose your own favorite rather than the movie picking a protagonist to focus on. They also have their own strengths and weaknesses which make them more interesting. It was a good action movie and it didn’t feel like you needed any prior knowledge of the characters to enjoy the movie. Everyone will have their own opinion of course, but I would recommend it if you are looking for an action comedy fantasy, set in a modern day city.

(The Suicide Squad as characters also appear in a variety of comic book or graphic novel formats: traditional print format.)
