Harley Quinn. Nice to meet ya,’

Suicide Squad is a movie starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevigne and Jared Leto, and it is about a group of super villains who save the world from the apocalypse. It includes iconic modern day characters such as Harley Quinn and The Joker.

I was ID-ed to buy the movie (the movie is a 15 and I’m 18 in six months) but I actually watched the movie with my best guy friend, who likes action films. Last Halloween then a lot of people seemed to dress up as The Joker and Harley Quinn, and I didn’t really understand the hype. As for who played The Joker better, Jared Leto and the late Heath Ledger interpreted the character in their own way. I liked the art direction in the movie, the cinematography, the soundtrack and the colour scheme were astounding. I generally heard mixed reviews about this movie, some said that it was good, and others said that it was terrible. For me, it’s not my favourite movie but it does have its good points about it and its downsides too. At times, it seemed to drag and it seemed like it was very much the ‘Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Jared Leto Show’.  I can see why Harley Quinn is such an iconic image for both men and women. As for her and The Joker’s relationship? It was toxic, and Jared Leto adapted the character of the Joker in his own sinister way. The green hair and tattoos suited him very well. I think that Cara Delevigne’s witch character might have been a representation of multiple personality disorder (her good side and her enchantress side) but I’m not too sure about that.

Overall, a decent film with a good soundtrack, cast, special effects and visuals. I can understand why Margot Robbie was chosen for the part of Harley. Although she’s not my favourite actress, her character reminds me of one of those confident, attractive characters who seems to attract the men with her sex appeal and badassery.  I previously saw Margot Robbie in Wolf of Wall Street, and I didn’t really like it that much.

If you haven’t seen the movie already, go and see what all the hype is about. It also features a Batman cameo.

4/5
