DC Entertainment crosses fingers for Suicide Squad
Ok, Harley Q and the worse of the worse make their film premiere in DC Entertainment newest film venture, The Suicide Squad. Debuting this Friday has created a huge buzz, some good, but mostly a fear of failure. This is might be due to the lackluster film performances of Batman vs. Superman, and other failed hero movie attempts. With its endless successes of the comic book Rebirth, DVD cartoons and video games, why can’t the DC Universe have the sames success in their films? Fans are left to ask themselves, Can they finally pull this off? Director David Ayer, from such films as Training Day and Fury, will attempt to climb DC out from its hole and take these dark, anti heroes fans know all too well and breathe life onto the silver screen. Lets hope for DC sakes fans won’t go home wearing paper bags over their heads in fear of snickers and scoffs sounds from Marvel fans after watching Suicide Squad.
With the success of Marvel’s anti-hero blockbuster’s DeadPool and the highly anticipated Captain America’s Civil War, Marvel Productions can do no wrong. Every screenplay written produced box-office Gold and has formed a canyon gap distance from DC Entertainment. What makes Marvel films so widely accepted and fan-loved, is the character development and snappy writing. When you watch a DC movie, there is almost no humor to ease the tension or offer a quick jab to pride. Would I give for a sarcastic punch-line to break the seriousness of the film and connect moviegoers with the character. Whereas the Batman vs. Superman, after watching three times, didn’t even crack a smile. Compare this with someone who has never watched Marvel’s 2012 The Avengers movie in 420p with mono stereo would walk away from the film entertained. It all in the character development and snappy screenwriting.
Now back to the Suicide Squad film. The story tells how a maximum Federal prison houses some of the most violent metahumans & criminals on the face of the planet. With superhuman strength and uncanny abilities, these inmates are locked away from society, permanently. A Government official Amanda Waller, played by Viola Davis, takes this opportunity and convinces the U. S Government to release 7 of the worse to suppress an unknown force who has take a city to it’s knees. It’s up to these anti-heroes who must come together regain the city from siege and battle against this menace. Will the Squad complete their mission for a chance for an early parole or be pasties for the government and die trying. The best way to sum up how the premise of the film will unfold is a famous Latin quote, “Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus: Si Vis pacem, para bellum,” translates, “If you want Peace, Prepare for War”. (See if you can find it) The film Suicide Squad premieres this Friday to theaters across the country and is rated PG-13
