SW SCORE: 35

3.5 out of 5 🐙

I love Margot Robbie. I loved Suicide Squad even though I cannot provide you with a reasonable explanation for that feeling.  But a lot of it centers around Margot Robbie. What can I say? She sends me. And she is the obvious center of this movie as well. The movie itself is fun and funny but it struck me as a JV version of Deadpool and Kick-Ass. Those aren’t bad movies to steal from/emulate but there’s not a lot new here. It’s a bit of a strange movie because it is not obviously setting up for a sequel like most comic book films. Though you should stay to the end of the credits.

(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feeling…not that SW score is scientific…but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
