Fuck. Fuck. Hoooooly fuck. As the kids say, I am shooketh. This was a thrill ride from start to finish, absolutely worthy of its 18 rating. First 18 movie, that's another thing scratched off the bucket list!
Let me apologise for being a 2016 studio cut Squad defender for the last five years - Ayer was right. The version of his Suicide Squad that went into cinemas definitely isn't his. Gunn's version solves a lot of the problems of the original, namely the pacing, character development and the restrictions on gore that feel uncharacteristic for the Suicide Squad. In fact, it feels like the closest thing we have right now to a director's cut of the original Squad.
