Despite having received negative reviews from critics, Suicide Squad still delivers some entertaining action yet fun in it. The movie itself started with a portrayal of several bad guys who was jailed in, mostly by Batman, and then gather as a task force for a specific mission. The idea for this task force is to uphold the rise of meta-humans in the world, as they mentioned about Superman and how they think of him as a good guy for sacrificing himself to protect the earth and humanity.
The plot itself is quite predictable, they went on a mission to take over the city from the meta-humans who making it as their fortress and use it to build the armies. Then Suicide Squad saved Amanda Waller, long story short, happy ending. The performance from the actors and actresses is pretty decent, they nailed it in every scene and dialogue, especially for Viola Davis, Will Smith and Margot Robbie.
Yes, it has a flaw as a movie, from the choppy editing and sloppy cut. Plot and narratives. But from other perspectives as in the acting performances and the characters, it was fun and enjoyable!
Without further ado, this is my best moments for Suicide Squad, starting from,
1. Every scene with Amanda Waller in it
Viola Davis really did a great job as Amanda Waller, she nailed every line, she is mean, ruthless, and dangerous! Her interaction with her co-worker and staff, especially with Rick Flag defines her character very well. She even kills her own staff by herself! You don't want to mess up with this lady over here.
2. The Squad Dynamic
One thing that the movie is great about is The Squad itself. The idea about bad guys saving the world is pleasantly nuts, and you can feel that vibe throughout the film. The dynamic of each member, how they interact, and even the moment they were talking to each other about their problems is really touching at some point and yet enjoyable to watch.
3. Will Smith Moments
As predicted, Will Smith shine in his role as Deadshot. Every time he delivers the line, it was his moment. One of his best moment is when he was tested by Waller and Flag in the field, and that scene is hilarious. His banter with Flag and Waller is awesome!
4. Jared Leto and Margot Robbie
This is what people waiting for! Despite the amount of pressure he had because the legacy of Heath Ledger's Joker, this version of Joker surprisingly delivers a good job. The Joker appears like a sprinkle in here and there. Jared pulls it out with a new approach to his character. That interrogation moment is really creepy in some way. Another thing is that his relationship with Harley, although not much explored, gave us insight that there is more to these two, perhaps in the next installment. Because of his screen time, surely we can't really judge his version of Joker. It is like a teaser for this character.
It is obvious that WB and DC intended to make another set of the movie which includes Harley Quinn! Margot Robbie steals the show, she is deserved to be this character. The best moment she had is when she was faking her death in a wire after she was shot by Deadshot as Waller's command him to do so. Another moment is when she was in a dream sequence created by the enchantress. You will see the passion inside of her towards her puddin, Mr. J. She wants to make a decent normal family with him. Weird, but hilarious. Wait for the ending when Joker finally come to save Harley.
PS: Wait for Alex Ross reference!
5. Diablo breaking his Limit
After watching this movie, maybe you will find this character will be your favorite one. His character development from the beginning up until the end was very good. The moment he reaches out his maximum potential, you will cheer for this guy. Because he fully appeared in his fiery god-like form!
6. That mid-credits scene with Waller
Lastly, I pick this scene. I'm not sure if this scene or Flash cameo (his first encounter with Capt. Boomerang) was better. But because Flash cameo is only a matter of seconds, although we can see him fully dressed as Flash and delivers one line, I rather pick up Wayne and Waller scene.
Waller contacted Bruce Wayne to come and meet her.Because of the incident happened in this movie, and Waller's do not want all of that incident leaked, she want a protection, and she knows who's to call. Bruce Wayne, the Batman himself. It seems they have already known each other for a long time. In order to do that request, Bruce needs the information that Waller has about the meta-human. While Bruce saying that he believe in friendship, Waller quickly responds: "I don't believe in friendship, I believe in leverage." Bruce looked at her, and Waller added, "You look tired. You should stop working night." It proves that she knew all along that this is the Batman himself. Bruce then replied, "If you don't shut it down (Task Force X), someone will do it for you."
