I saw Suicide Squad today… My thoughts

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

Okay, I went for an outing with my sister, we both went to bowling and then we went to the cinema to see the Suicide Squad movie.

I thought the film was amazing, and I loved most of the characters in it, Deadshot, inparticular, I thought was amazing and Will Smith, the actor portraying him was awesome as always!

Overall, I thought the film was excellent, but there was one thing on my mind while watching it… I couldn’t help but feel like Harley Quinn and the Joker were shoehorned into the movie to broaden the appeal…

Seriously, she didn’t seem consistent with the rest of the crew. You have Deadshot, an assassin who never loses and can bounce bullets to kill people, you have El Diablo, someone who can make fire with his hands, Killer Croc, who is very tough and strong, Katana, someone who can slice people in half with a single slice of a sword, Boomerang, someone with powerful blades that can be thrown and will come back… and Harley Quinn…. a intellectually-challenged, scantily-clad woman with a baseball bat?

She didn’t add anything to the story either, you can easily take her and the Joker out of it and the movie would still work the same…

I can’t help but feel like the Joker was only in it because he is a popular character, and thus broaden the appeal, and Harley Quinn was only there to rush blood to cisgendered heterosexual (and bi and pansexual) men’s crotches…

The sad thing is that this seems to be working a charm, most of my friends are obsessing over the movie, and specifically about Harley Quinn, and I see figures of her everywhere, but the characters that actually moved the plot forward get next to no attention, minus maybe Deadshot, who I see now and again…

Anyway, those are my thoughts, quick, I know, and mostly focused on Harley Quinn, but I just can’t get it out of my head and I felt the need to share my thoughts on it all, and I have….

So… You can all go, breath a sign of relief…
