The Suicide Squad, DC’s latest superhero film, continues to engage fans even on day two of its release. One of the most anticipated films of the year, The Suicide Squad hit theaters on Thursday. Directed by James Gunn, this is a soft reboot of the 2016 film Suicide Squad.
The film has so far received positive reviews. Indian Express film critic Shalini Langer wrote in his review: âThe smartest trick about The Suicide Squad is that its politics pack a punch. Because, James Gunn realizes that the craziest thing is not the monsters fighting on the screen. It’s the government pulling the strings from behind, venturing into worlds it has no idea about, pitting people against each other and investing millions and 30 years to build monsters like the Star of sea ââis the apparent villain of this film. It’s a delicious irony when the pretty thing with its delirium of colors crushes men with their machines.
