Halloween Boutique Psychotronic Reviews – Volume 054 – THE SUICIDE SQUAD (2021)

DC movies have received varying degrees of success as each is released and turns into a box office smash or a disappointment.   When James Gunn took over as the head of the latest re-boot of the universe of the comicbooks to film, his first project was THE SUICIDE SQUAD (2021), a standalone sequel to the original from 2016. 

Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) once more puts together a super villain squad of anti-heroes to infiltrate the Latin American country of Corto Maltese after a coup overthrew the neutral government that now has turned the island nation hostile.  The squad is kept in the dark but takes the job as they will get suspended prison terms if the mission is a success.  Unfortunately for them, Waller may be as dangerous to their survival as Corto Maltese’s junta.

The movie is another success for James Gunn and gives him a big jump with Warner Brother’s Pictures and their upcoming universe.  The film didn’t gross as much as it was hoped as it was released during the middle of the COVID pandemic, but it has generated great reviews and much success after its initial theatrical run.  Your co-hosts take a look at this movie and give their thoughts.
