Some small talk has recently been released on the sequel of the horrid film, "Suicide Squad". As someone who is getting very sick of superhero movies, I can honestly say that I had no desire to watch Suicide Squad when it originally came out. But, yesterday, I saw it at my local library, rented it, and watched it at home. I can honestly say, I wasted two hours of my life watching a #Movie that had no real believable foundation to begin with and it also tried really hard to be funny. In fact, it tried so hard, that it was laughable, but in the wrong way. So, here's a short (and somewhat delayed) review of Suicide Squad, and more on the supposed sequel to follow.

The dreadful first 10 minutes

After the first 5 minutes of the movie, even before the title sequence started, I had no clue what I was watching. It was basically just 5 minutes of stuff happening. None of it was even remotely related and none of it ever seemed to matter later in the film. There was no reference to what I saw anywhere else in the film and my initial thought was "Oh no. This will be awful." My gut was correct in that aspect. Then some lady sits down at a table and starts spewing raw exposition for #10 Minutes while introducing each separate character of the movie. At this point, I understand that the movie won't improve, but I continued to watch. Why I did, I do not know.

A movie that tries too hard

The rest of the movie was "character development" and I use that phrase very loosely.

Essentially, the movie really wanted me to care about the 6 main characters, even though all of them were generic, unoriginal, and completely surrounded by their own mental barriers. No one cared about anything going on, except for one guy who didn't even belong to the squad of misfits. The film continues, unfunny jokes are made constantly, most of them by Harley Quinn, and I'm struggling to keep my eyes open. Finally, something starts to happen, but then it only happens for about maybe 2 minutes, and then it stops and then the movie ends. All in all, I don't think I'll ever watch it again.

Suicide Sequel

So now, there is a supposed sequel that is to start production sometime in late 2017 or early 2018 which should make a release date of any time in 2019, maybe a little earlier. Apparently, Jared Leto (The Joker) will be much more involved in the movie's plot. Many viewers are upset by this, and many others are excited about it. It's highly likely that Will Smith will return as Deadshot as well as the rest of the crew. There is even talk about El Diablo returning to his role in the sequel, even though he "died" in the previous film. Not much else can be said about the film because no other details about it have been finalized. So, until then, hide in your closets, because it seems the nightmare is coming. As for me, I think the sequel will be better than the first. DC knows the mistakes they've made, and they'd be crazy to make them all over again. #Suicide Squad 2
