Bad guys that eventually do good things. Sounds weird, right? Well not anymore especially for this movie. We are seeing it more frequently. "The Suicide Squad" is taking everything we think we know about villains and turning it upside down. I've seen both movies, but personally I prefer the second mainly because Harley has a bigger role. OK, she had her own movie, but if you know me, I can never get enough of her. I also liked this one better because of Ratcatcher and Polka Dot Man.
Two new characters we’re introduced to who will just steal your heart and run away. King Shark is also great as well, and gives you a much-needed comedic relief. These movies again basically take baddies, or villains, whatever you want to call them and give them a chance to do something for someone else by joining this squad and saving the world in whatever form it may be. If you want to jump into the second movie without watching the first, honestly, I’d say go ahead because they really don’t relate to each other at all. Different story, different squad, well all except for Harley because she’s just that good. Not really any references to the first except a vague line "You know the drill" implying they have been through this before. It’s even a new place. So whichever Suicide Squad movie you decide to watch and in whichever order. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed.

The first thing I want to say is how much I absolutely hate the title. 5 years ago, DC Universe came out with "Suicide Squad". Now they want a sequel. Instead of calling it "Suicide Squad 2", would actually would have been more fitting because of events in the movie, they went with "The Suicide Squad". REALLY???? All you did was add "the" to the beginning, which often gets dropped talking about it anyway.
Anyway, last year screwed with a lot of releases and this was one of them. 2021 brings us the dual streaming/movie theatre release of "The Suicide Squad". One thing for sure is the movie was not afraid to make it a bit on the bloody side. Red will fly loud and proud. Remember, this is not for little kids. It's rated R for a reason-- R is for RED!
Onto the movie. Harley Quinn is back on a life-or-death mission with a new band of misfits. Well, if you are familiar with the animated series, one of them she knows from that, King Shark. He isn't as talkative in this as he was in the series but he is slowly learning and still used for comedic purposes. This may not even fall in the same timeline as that series. So, moving on.
The cinematic masterpiece is a visit inside the classroom. Who can work well with others for the greater good? Who can you trust? Is everyone on the same page? Can you learn from previous mistakes? All these questions will answer when you sit down and watch it. Take notes. There will be a test later.
