The Rundown 

The Suicide Squad is the do-over of  DC Universe’s 2016  antihero squad-  Suicide Squad.   This much anticipated reboot follows a team of incarcerated supervillains who undertake high-risk black ops secret missions in exchange for either parole, work release, and/or reduced prison sentences.

The Review

Belle Reve is the biggest, baddest prison where the sickest super-villains  are incacerated. They’re offered a quid pro quo by state security agents.  Agree to be “recruited” into Task Force X to destroy Jötunheim, a Nazi-era prison and laboratory in the South American island nation of Corto Maltese that holds political prisoners and a site for secretive experiments.  In return, they get their freedom or reduced sentences .  What ensues is total mayhem as   Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn.  Go on a rampage in Corto Maltese. Blowing up heads, slicing necks, shooting up ‘dictators’ and swallowing up soldiers. It’s gore, blood and sprinkles of hilarity here and there. We get a glimpse of some of the  antiheroes backstories and American imperialism is also put on blast.  Shout out to ‘woke’ hollywood for that. Lol! DC went all out with this reboot. The visuals are sleek and the new villains  are fun to watch.

The Hits

• American intervention politics being put on blast.
• Idris Elba being a dzaddy.
• The outstanding visuals.

The Misses
