The reviews are here and it seems James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is a hit with critics and has done enough to erase the memories of DC’s 2016 movie of the same name. The reboot/sort-of-sequel promises lots of laughs, over-the-top action and great performances by an impressive ensemble cast.
To celebrate the upcoming The Suicide Squad movie, we’re giving away 5 hampers to readers.
Some of the good feedback the film is receiving:
“Only the man who wrote Tromeo and Juliet could deliver something this gleefully grotesque, vicious, and unapologetic, and the DC Universe is all the better for it.” – RogerEbert.com
“An epic that’s as adorable as it is violent.” – London Evening Standard
“Instead of dwelling on trying to make his bad guys good, Gunn leans into their psychotic tendencies and mixes them all together to create a cocktail of crazy that will shock and delight audiences.” – SciFiNow
“The Suicide Squad might be the kindest superhero film ever made. Sure, it’s about criminals forced into life-threatening missions at the promise of freedom and the threat of death. But under all that ultra violence lies something far sweeter.” – Nerdist
“[A] ferociously funny, foul-mouthed and ultra-violent film…” – The Sun (UK)
“Gunn honours and embraces the comic’s silly essence and the social criticism.” – Cinemanía
What’s The Suicide Squad movie about?
Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favourite psycho, Harley Quinn.
Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement.
And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
