The film is directed by David Ayer, who previously made End of Watch and Fury.
DC fans, there is a lesson for you here - never trust the hype, the eye-pleasing star cast and the fantastic promos surrounding any of their films. They are all bound by the adage - All that glitters is not gold.
Ever since Christopher Nolan stopped making Batman films, Warner Bros have been struggling to make a good DC superhero film and offer some sort of competition to a smarter Marvel Entertainment. This despite, DC having more cool superheroes and supervillains (come on, a few years ago, did you even care for Iron Man?). After that huge disappointment called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (which hardcore DC fans are still defending as a masterpiece, just like Salman fans call Jai Ho and Ready as classics), we had all our expectations set on the villains-turn-nice guys flick Suicide Squad. Weren't we all blown away by the brilliant trailers and the return of Joker?
However, the film has turned out to be suicidal for the makers, see the negative reactions the film has garnered. The viewers have blamed the film for its lack of good plot, wasting Jared Leto's Joker, over sexualising Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and basically everything else. Why, some of the international magazines even called it 'worse than Green Lantern and Fantastic Four'. Ouch!
