    » Only one word can encapsulate Tattoo Colour and what it's like to be sitting in the same room with them: guan teen. This would roughly translate to its members' smartass demeanour.

    With a promise of fun, Suicide Squad is a near-suicide

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 05/08/2016

    » For the first 30 minutes or so of its two-hour duration, Suicide Squad genuinely reminded me of the zany, outlandish humour of Marvel's Deadpool and Guardians Of The Galaxy, even if, ultimately, this one is not remotely as good. With zany, self-aware text introductions, a largely 80s-inspired soundtrack, excellent costume designs and enough one-liners to fill a book, Suicide Squad's first act was a fun, neon-splashed ride that made me believe DC's supervillain team-up would -- ironically -- be the comic label's first good film. This all dissolves by the second act, however, as the film begins to disintegrate into predictable, by-the-numbers story complete, with all the pitfalls that held back its predecessors, becoming yet another mediocre entry in DC's cinematic franchise.
