Well, the early reviews are in, and they’re not too good. Noooooo!
“Vanity Fair” says: “It’s ugly and boring, a toxic combination that means the film’s highly fetishized violence doesn’t even have the exciting tingle of the wicked or the taboo.”
But ScreenCrush.com wrote a nice review!…(Joking): “Bland, boring, and sometimes borderline incoherent . . . a disappointing disaster.”
One thing a lot of people like about the film was Margot Robbie and Harley Quinn. Not as much for Jared Leto as the Joker. Not bad, but not great.
Apparently he’s not in the movie much at all.
Reviewers also said Leto doesn’t live up to the hype. A critic from SlashFilm.com said, “He’s not terrible, and Leto and [director] David Ayer deserve credit for trying to make the character their own. “But ‘Suicide Squad’s’ Joker certainly isn’t giving ‘The Dark Knight’s’ Joker a run for his money.”
Yikes…This is disappointing. The movie hits theatres in Canada Friday, August 5th. We’ll see how the box office looks after these reviews.
