The hype around the Suicide Squad movie is reaching fever pitch. While some critics (aka Rotten Tomatoes) have not been kind to the movie, this is not going to stop any of us Joker and DC fans from filling the seats when it comes out in a few days. But the glaring reality behind the Suicide Squad is, before this movie trailer dropped, no one outside of diehard DC fans even knew who they were or had heard of them. Hell, even the name scared some people away.
So in essence, you have a bunch of people going to see this movie because they love The Joker and Harley Quinn (which is a great reason, by the way) but don’t you think you will have a better time at the movie if you knew a bit more about the team, how they came to be, and what their story is? Yes, finally seeing Harley Quinn come to life fulfills a dream for many a Batman: The Animated Series fans (where she was birthed), but what about Captain Boomerang, do you know anything about him? Or The Enchantress, bet you don’t know too much about her, either. And don’t even get me started on Killer Croc (who looks very badass in this, btw).
Think of this Looper video as a crash course in Suicide Squad before this weekend. You’re welcome. And remember, reviews do not represent how you feel, they represent how that person feels. Don’t let that change your view. See it and reserve judgement for yourself until you do.
