The Suicide Squad | Ratings & Reviews

Don't get too attached to any of the Squad's new dysfunctional anti-heroes: everybody's cannon-fodder in this explosion of violence and comedy.

"(The) delirious mix of comedy and cartoon violence DC Comics fans hoped for..."

South China Morning PostSouth China Morning Post

"More fun than last time but still with DC darkness..."

Financial TimesFinancial Times

"Not a reboot or a sequel so much as a second chance."


"Embraces a superhero vibe... and adds elements of workplace comedy, gritty war movie, dysfunctional family drama and kaiju disaster flick..."

USA TodayUSA Today

"Bombastic, silly and self-aware..."


"Sometimes, you just need to watch a humanoid shark tear a man in half."

The Globe and MailThe Globe and Mail

"A good half of the jokes don't land, but unlike his predecessor's joyless slog, Gunn's version at least celebrates the nonsense..."

Entertainment WeeklyEntertainment Weekly

"Whichever way you slice it, this Squad... is fun to hang out with."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Gunn's distinct and self-assured vision... puts The Suicide Squad alongside the very best of modern comic-book filmmaking."


"It's dazzlingly colourful and riotously crass, but also emotionally alive."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"James Gunn gets it. His take on The Suicide Squad is unashamedly silly, but crucially never stupid..."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"Now that's how you do it."

The TimesThe Times

"Gunn gels it together with a wicked sense of humour and an evident affection for his characters..."

Time OutTime Out

"In many ways, the gleefully profane, anything-goes mayhem of The Suicide Squad feels like a mega-budget version of the Troma Studios productions that gave Gunn his start. And thank goodness for that."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"Only the man who wrote Tromeo and Juliet could deliver something this gleefully grotesque, vicious, and unapologetic, and the DC Universe is all the better for it."

"Not a single gag lands and most of them offend. This might actually be worse than the first one."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"It is not for children. It's not really for adults either. But the eternal inner adolescent that lives within us all will almost certainly have a swell time."

The Irish TimesThe Irish Times

"An absolute blast..."

Daily MailDaily Mail

"Not everything works here, but the sheer crazy confidence-through-chaos of the Suicide Squad and their bizarrely dysfunctional MO makes for a mighty spectacle."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"The Suicide Squad is James Gunn at his most unhinged, unrestrained and unleashed, but the result is one of the best DC movies in years."

We Got This CoveredWe Got This Covered

"It’s clear that (Gunn) understands not only the superhero genre but knows enough about the DC universe to satiate life-long fans. Better yet, he knows how to have fun..."

Film ThreatFilm Threat

"James Gunn renders the half-grim, half-absurdist nature of the Suicide Squad with delightfully bloody abandon."

Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"Endearingly sweet, even as it's spilling brain matter and gore by the bucket load."

Bloody DisgustingBloody Disgusting

"James Gunn has done the seemingly impossible: He has found the fun in the Suicide Squad."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"Now we can officially forget about the first Suicide Squad movie..."

Chicago TribuneChicago Tribune

"Gory, sentimental, brazenly adolescent, and never short on imagination..."

The AgeThe Age

"Not only does it find the nastily enjoyable vibe that eluded its predecessor, but it also tells a story worth following..."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"The Suicide Squad is cunningly scuzzy, disreputable fun."
