There’s a reason is called The suicide squad and not Suicide Squad 2. Less of a sequel and more of a desperate need to go over, this rough, side- The surprisingly clever supervillain puzzle is the definite article.

To the cinema And in streaming on HBO Max on August 5, The Suicide Squad of 2021 is born of twisted taste of James Gunn. His Guardians of the galaxy movies injected wacky sci-fi and a large dose of humor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but when old tweets got him in trouble at Marvel, rival comic conglomerate DC got him in tour up to revitalize another extravagant ensemble: the soaked neon, face- tattooed Suicide Squad 2016 movie misfire.

The dirty dozen of DC suits Gunn even better than the MCU Guardians. Set free of Marvel’s family-friendly chains, man who He started his career in B-movie Troma has trash palace found perfection home for its gloriously bad-taste blend of gore and classic rock; 1980s action movies and forgotten comics; and the most scurrilous of humor and vulgar of language. This is a movie where the United States government hire a talking shark like Sylvester Stallone to snatch people in half. And he’s sick. He is sick like hell.

As the first movie, the plot involves a bunch of condemned to comics with Questionable superpowers are pressed into the service of black operations puppeteer Amanda Waller played with dead with Viola Davis’ steely eyes. This time they are infiltrating in a South American island to take out a new installation military joint and clean out a mysterious superweapon. Complications full of curses and insanely violent nonsense ensue.

One of the first moviei’s greatest strengths was the casting, and so is it true here. Alongside Davis, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney and Margot Robbie return from the first movie. After the anemic Birds of Prey, Robbie manages to deliver it more full- blood spin as DC breakout star Harley Quinn, falling in love and machine- armed henchmen in a torn dress e combat boots.

Newcomers include Idris Elba as the exasperated killer Bloodsport, who combines natural leadership skills with a foul anti-heroic streak. is locked in a piss competition with John Cena’s patriotic and psychotic peacemaker. The couple hilariously collides as they try to one-up each other in murderous creativity. Dinner is like this good And like this funny as the tense Peacemaker (earning a spin off series on HBO Max next year) He looks like like a completely different actor from the block of Wooden who fallen off the screen with a dull thud in this year’S Fast and Furious 9.

Join the Gunns show is a fantastic cast that includes Nathan Fillion, Michael Rooker, Pete Davidson, Alice Braga, Taika Waititi and Peter Capaldi. (And look out for comic creator John Ostrander as a hateful doctor.) Everyone is perfect and clearly enjoying themselves immensely.

Gunn is hyperactive camera bobs, plots and breathtaking punches pace. The movie opens with a savage, e also hilarious opening, assault on the playing beach like Save Private Ryan on a cocktail of drugs. It intensifies through an unpleasant inventive action set filled pieces with various jaw-dropping gory (and fun) moments for a climax that makes up everything up to 11.

So yeah, it’s hugely fun. But The Suicide Squad is anything but a flow of aware gags in style of Joss Whedon, another director who cross between DC and MCU and whose joking tone in movie like Avengers: Age of Ultron e Justice League threatened to undermine material.

In contrast, Gunn’s jet-black sense of humor exudes from a serious, even angry foundation. This irreverent comic movie takes hits a lot big and serious, angry fears against Western imperialism, American foreign policy And government deception in how much he accuses the interference in foreign countries. Representing this chilling bureaucratic evil, Amanda Waller emerges as perhaps the most hateful villain in the DC universe, certainly the coldest.

The suicide squad hit the city.

In this nihilist world, Gunn finds sympathy for the devils, inviting viewers to feel compassion and empathy for even the biggest furious monsters and the dumbest comic characters. The stupidest and the scariest still are just people (or walking sharks) with problems.

Thus the talkative millennial Ratcatcher (interpreted in touching way by Daniela Melchior) is invested with genuine hope and heartbreak. And the very stupid powers of Polka Dot Man are reimagined as genuinely creepy body horror. David Dastmalchian brilliantly channels a tormented psychological torment that gives weight to the absurd character – while also setting up a true nonsense non-sequitur of a visual gag, of course.

Gunn is also wonderfully interested in the small people in background. Even the most anonymous extras get small sketchy details in to make them feel like a person, even if that detail is quickly followed by a gory and terrifying expression death. The staff behind the scenes of the team of the buttons are amusingly meaty out (for reasons that become clear from the credits) and also enjoy a point of karmic revenge for rather harsh treatment of their bosses of the support personal in the first movie.

Although it is clearly head and shoulders above the jumbled mess of the original 2016 film directed by David Ayer, the sequel is anything but a rerun or a rejection. Version 2.0 highlights weaknesses of the first film (which by the way won an Oscar), but also Does this make sense.

Looking at Gunn’s version made watch me back on the original and thinks: Ohhhh, so this that’s what they were try to do.

Ayer took heat for her shamelessly obvious wedding DJ needle drops, for example, but Gunn opens the movie prison scenes with Johnny Cash sings Folsom Prison Blues. The movie playlist isn’t as flashy as it is Guardians of the much-loved soundtracks of the galaxy, but it provides yet another pleasure in this tour de force of garbage.

The Suicide Squad is demented and delightful, sincere and horribly hilarious.
