Just got back from Suicide Squad. Maybe it's because I was expecting a BvS level bomb but I didn't actually hate it. Although I'd be okay with never seeing it again. I was mostly... bored with it? It was basically 90 minutes of walking around, with an additional 30 minutes of bad fighting and some random Joker scenes.
The pacing was all over the place. Seriously, they should have just given us a booklet with all of the team members and their traits and saved 10 minutes of screen time. The music was ridiculous too, using every cliche rock song from the past 40 years. It's like someone from DC watched Guardians of the Galaxy and completely missed the point. Then there were too many characters, main plot felt like an Avengers ripoff, etc.
I would have had them just be told to steal some weapons or something from Wayne Enterprises since Waller was a bad guy anyway. Would have made the post credits scene make more sense as to why Batman wanted to keep tabs on them. Simpler plot, and gives the characters more time to be developed rather than just having us be expected to know who these people are already (or think we can read flash cards in 5 seconds)
