Posted under Movies On By Rama

“I cherish peace with all my heart. I don’t care how many men, women, and children I need to kill to get it,” – Peacemaker.

‘ Peacemaker ‘ is an American television series created by James Gunn for the streaming services HBO Max and HBO GO (for Asia), based on the DC Comics character of the same name Peacamaker. It is also a spin-off of James Gunn’s DCEU superhero film ‘The Suicide Squad’ (2021).

Television, with James Gunn as lead developer. John Cena plays the main character, reprising his role from ‘ The Suicide Squad ‘, with other roles supported by Danielle Brooks, Freddie Stroma, Chukwudi Iwuji, Jennifer Holland, Steve Agee, and Robert Patrick.

Filming began in Vancouver, Canada, in January 2021 and ended in July 2021, with James Gunn himself directing five episodes. And the rest by Jodi Hill, Rosemary Rodriguez, and Brad Anderson Peacemaker premieres on HBO Max and HBO GO on January 13, 2022, with its first three episodes. The rest of the series is released every Thursday and ends on February 17, 2022.

Peacemaker or Christopher Smith ( John Cena ) who just got out of the hospital and came home must be forced to join the new Team Task Force X with new members as well. This special force is also formed by Amanda Waller who formed the previous Suicide Squad, but this time the project is different. Its members consist of Clemson Murn (Chukwudi Iwuji), Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland), John Economos (Steve Agee), and Leota Adebayo (Danielle Brooks).

The team investigates a “Project Butterfly” that poses a major threat to humanity. In the midst of the investigation, a new member enters Vigilante (Freddie Stroma) who is an old friend of the Peacemaker. The six of them are forced to carry out a mission to dismantle “Project Butterfly” and find out if there is any involvement of other parties who manage “Starfish Project” in ‘The Squicide Squad’.

Auggie Smith (Robert Patrick) or the father of Peacemaker turns out to be a White Dragon figure who is a threat in itself because he has been slandered in a murder case that was actually carried out by Peacemaker himself. The mission to investigate “Project Butterfly” was hampered by the involvement of the police who were still suspicious of the Peacemaker.

Entertaining superhero group
This is no match for the Justie League with various superpowers, but it can entertain us even more with their crazy actions. John Cena this time was very successful in bringing back his character who might be annoying in ‘The Suicide Squad’, turning here into a crazy silly character who stays on his feet. Moreover, the figure of Vigilante (Freddie Stroma) is super chaotic with his absurd dialogues. These two characters alone have made you laugh all through the game.

Other roles that focus on “Project Butterfly”, also sometimes get into the circle of the Peacemaker’s silliness, who keeps joking around even in a precarious situation. Leota is in the spotlight for keeping a secret mission, because he is the son of Amanda Waller herself. Leota also plays an important role in every crucial mission.

It’s incomplete if the special forces team doesn’t have a deadly beautiful woman. Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) here is very successful in bringing that character into the team and always performs actions that fascinate us on missions.

Not to forget John Economos (Steve Agee) who is the brain behind the mission and also enlivens the silliness. His jealousy, which is always the subject of a bully by Chris Smith / Peacemaker and his small chatter, always invites laughter.
