Pros of the Suicide Squad 2021 movie?
The Beginning is insane
The storyline of the Suicide Squad 2021 kicks in the first 5 minutes of the movie, giving it a rapid start, which starts entertaining the audience from the initial stage instead of making them hopeful by setting a built up.
This is amazing because when a person decides to watch an action-packed movie, he/she just wants to throw himself/herself on the couch with the mindset of enjoying stunning action sequences.
But when there are scenes not making sense at the beginning which are a part of the story built up and they are devoid of the action sequence, then the audience becomes more conscious of the story than the action scenes which reduces their chill mood of watching the movie.
But with the Suicide Squad 2021, that’s not the case, you can be in a chill mood from beginning till end.
Cinematography is the heart of any action movie that gives it a unique identity among other movies. Also, it is that element that gives that draws the legacy of the movie.
The cinematography of the Suicide Squad 2021 is phenomenal.
It makes all the action sequences amazing and credible at the same time which will make you feel close to real fights and hook you in the moments.

Optimum Pace – Cherry on the cake!
The reason why even the jumpy timelines and variation in plots are smooth and always within reach of the audience is the pace of the movie.
The movie has a throughout optimum pace involved which ensures no difficulties in understanding the plots, doesn’t confuse the audience with back-and-forth sequences and connects the dots so smoothly along with the movie progression that you’d hardly notice 2 hours passing by.
Decent Portrayal of Action with Emotions
Usually, in an action-comedy movie, the emphasis is more on the protagonist’s goal and the ways by which he/she will achieve them.
There are few traces of the backstory of the reason why the protagonist is the way he/she is but only a few movies justify the emotional elements of the protagonist of being that way, subtly without overpowering it.
And thankfully, the Suicide Squad 2021 movie is one of them as even being an R rated film, which has become successful in pulling off the human emotion of the protagonists in the movie with great decency that justifies their ethics and way of doing things to achieve their goal.
Also, the way it blends with the movie’s plot at the end is truly amazing.
Out and out entertainer
The Suicide Squad 2021 is an Out and out entertainer with a beautifully crafted storyline, smooth progression and integration of comedic and action scenes in between them.
You might hardly find one or two 5-10 minutes segments where the movie doesn’t entertain you either emotionally, hilariously or through action sequences.
The starcast in the Suicide Squad movie has contributed a big chunk in pulling off all the pros mentioned above.
(Except Cinematography. Its credit goes to the Moviemakers 😉)
The dialogue delivery, killer dialogues, subtle yet catchy expressions, impressive gestures and every aspect of the human element are nicely showcased by the actors and it will definitely give you a great time!

The Suicide Squad 2021 plot is simple and you’ll be able to catch it in the first 10-15 minutes of the movie.
But the way, the storyline proceeds is very engaging and entertaining at the same time.
Cons of the Suicide Squad 2021 movie?
Superficial Character Development
The Characters involves in the Suicide Squad 2021 movie have very superficial character development as there is only a small piece of information involved about their backstory. Just enough to justify their ideals and way of being.
But nothing further from that.
However, bloodsport had a great advancement in its character development, but not for all of the squad members.
If their character development also had a similar growth as bloodsport, then it would have been better.
Shallow depth of detailing of Antagonists
Despite having a simple yet interesting storyline, the details of the antagonists could have been mentioned like their backstory, their special powers and specialities etc. which would have added more weight to their terrifying presence.
Imbalance in detailing of Protagonists
As this movie has a ‘squad’ of protagonists, there should have been details about each of their specialities & special powers along with their backstory as that would have given an edge to their presence in the climax.
It happened for two of them but not for all causing an imbalance in the impact of the ‘squad’ as a whole.
Who Should not watch the Suicide Squad 2021 movie?
It is R rated for a reason, don’t take it lightly.
