The first thing that makes this film so good is that the story is so powerful. Despite using the same formula as the previous film, The Suicide Squad movie looks neater. The plot is arranged in such a way that it continues and keeps the audience curious. Alu back and forth which is used with additional words to describe important events is a distinctive feature of its own. It must be admitted, James Gunn in this film is totally comical. He adapts all aspects of comics that make this film beat superhero films that have been released earlier.
All Characters So Imprint
As we know, James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad movie brings in many characters, starring a number of well-known actors. Some old characters like Harley Quinn and Amanda Waller are back. In addition to these two people, The Suicide Squad introduces DC characters that are completely new to the big screen.

What is interesting is the portion of character development in this film. With a duration of two hours, James Gunn managed to summarize the story of all the characters into a very interesting one. Even some of the characters who die in the beginning are very memorable. For example, the Blackguard character, even though he died the first time he left a very deep traitor impression on the audience.
The same thing happened to the characters who managed to survive. For example, Bloodsport is told as a superman villain and has problems with his child, Ratcatcher who is actually a good person and also Polka-Dot Man who really hates his mother. This is what makes us fans very curious about the Peacemaker series that James Gunn and John Cena are working on.
Not Just a ‘Playground’
Another strong element that makes The Suicide Squad different is the execution of adult jokes, gore and other immoral things. Yup, this film is actually intended for adults because it is filled with blood, murder, sexual scenes and offensive jokes. James Gunn played with it totally and uniquely, he kept the beginning and the end of the story still has its own ‘attitude’ as a superhero film.
James Gunn himself was one of the directors who was very angry with Martin Scorsese after the senior director mentioned that superhero films or Marvel, to be more precise, were nothing more than amusement parks. Now, he is proving that superhero films can be far more political and become the most pop medium for spreading a radical idea.

The Suicide Squad does this through the character Ratcatcher 2 and his rats who beat Starro The Conqueror. We can also see the political reflection of Task Force X and the figure of the Peacemaker. In the end this film is a very political film. Even so, you don’t need to think this film is political if you don’t want to. Enjoying the adventures of the suicide squad is more than enough.
