Suicide Squad is a big bummer
5 second plot: The government hires (well, 'enslaves' actually) a group of superpowered criminals as a last line of defense.
5 second review: Jesus what a bummer. The trailers were cool. The movie is not. Some of the characters are okay (Enchantress and her bro), but the story, the action, the humor,... is terrible. Everything that happens in the movie happens for a reason that doesn't have anything to do with the movie. For instance: the fact that Deadshot doesn't wear his mask. This is simply done to show as much of Will Smith's face as possible. Because his face sells tickets. And the plot hole loops are ludicrous. At one point in the middle of an action sequence a soldier pulls out letters written by Deadshot's daughter. Why did he bring the pack of letters to the fight? Did he leave his extra AK47 clip at home to be able to bring them? If I start asking myself questions like that mid-movie, I know I'm going to be pissed off.
