When you give James Gunn the keys of the kingdom, you know you are in for a wild ride. James Gunn had the choice between all the characters of the DC Universe and created this even worst team of villains then the last Suicide Squad, but with humor and a lot of enjoyment, he assembled this team of losers and actually made them shine.
Supervillains Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Peacemaker and a collection of nutty cons at Belle Reve prison join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X as they are dropped off at the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.
You can see that James Gunn (“The Guardians of the Galaxy” Volume 1&Volume 2) had a lot of fun working on this film, by creating the surprise every step of the way and subvert expectations. It is the same principle as the previous Suicide Squad, but every character has his moment to shine, and the story makes a little bit more sense than the previous one. But the main objective of the film is to have fun and enjoy the crazy adventurous that those characters put themselves into. The music is less present then in the Guardians but for the rest it is the same winning formula.
Margot Robbie is one of the only characters who comes back and has much more space to shine and be her own woman. Idris Elba is charismatic and sensible as the leader and John Cena is the perfect obnoxious shoot first ask questions later character. Viola Davies is her evil self and still as powerful as Amanda Waller. Joel Kinnaman is also back but with more heart and as much bravery and Daniela Melchior is the true heart of the film.
