The Suicide Squad (2021) | Movie Review

The Suicide Squad (2021) is an American typically Supervillain movie, based on DC comics. The movie is a sequel to Suicide Squad (2016). The Suicide Squad is directed and written by James Gunn. DC Films, Atlas Entertainment, and The Safran Company are the production companies. Warner Bros. Pictures is the distribution company.

The Suicide Squad would be the tenth movie of DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Its release date was the 5th of August 2021 and its runtime is about 132 min. The Suicide Squad (2021) is streaming on HBO Max from the same day.

The producers are Charles Roven and Peter Safran of the film. The budget for the movie was $185 million but the gross amount was $166.4 million at the box office. This definitely a big disappointment for the creators because the movie gets a lot of positive reviews from critics but the movies can’t cover a wide audience.

The producers are Charles Roven and Peter Safran of the film. The Suicide Squad features the supervillains of DC comics such as Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Rick Flag, King Shark, Polka-Dot Man, Ratcatcher 2, and Captain Boomerang. Yet, the movie is all different from other superhero movies and the direction of the film is great.

John Murphy was the music composer for the film. There are 12 soundtracks played in the different conditions very beautifully and really give a meaningful impact on the movie.


Warners Bros. hired James Gunn after many replacements of directors for the movie “The Suicide Squad”. James Gunn was fired from Disney and Marvel Studio for the film direction of Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Gunn was inspired by the movie from the War films and John Ostrander’s 1980s Suicide Squad comics. 

He decided to explore the movie but in a different way and separate the film from its first film. The movie was hilarious, comical, unpredictable, and gruesome.


The story begins with the collection of weird people having supernatural powers. Actually, they are criminals (Supervillains in DC comics). Amanda, an U.S intelligence officer who was the woman making two teams of these criminals as Force X or The Suicide Squad. Amanda inserted a bomb in them so that if they were not following her orders, they would explode.

The first team was released for landing on Corto Maltese (an Island of South America). Their mission is to destroy the Nazi era laboratory that holds a secret experiment known as the Star project. The Corto Maltese military almost finished the first team and hence they were successful in distracting them to make entry to the second team.

Harley Quinn was the most crucial character in the movie. Harley was the only one who survived from the first team. The Corto Maltese military captured Harley. There, she learned about the new plan to use the star project against other nations. The second team successfully captures the Thinker (Lead scientist of the star project). They (the second team) use the Thinker in order to enter the laboratory and he explained that the US government brought the Alien starfish (Starro the conqueror) which releases small starfish to kill people and even control them. The US government has been secretly funding the experiments on Starro for 30 years. They have been experimenting on citizens for decades.

Climax and Ending

Harley Quinn somehow is able to escape from the Corto Maltese military and join the second team. The team sets a lot of explosives to destroy the laboratory. But the team collected the evidence of revelation but the pacemaker was under secret order to erase the involvement of the government. The laboratory was falling and Bloodsport shot the pacemaker and set him to die.

The large starfish (Starro The conqueror) escapes from the laboratory and releases a large number of small starfish. The small starfishes kill the people and destroy the city, the suicide squad decided to kill that creepy starfish but Amanda order them to come back. The squad ignored her orders and Amanda just exploded the bomb inserted in their (squad) body but a sub coordinator hit Amanda as she was frustrated from her threats. Harkey pierces a hole in Starro’s eye and Ratcatcher’s rat eats that starfish and digests it.

The squad gives the drive of evidence in exchange for their independence.

The Suicide Squad (2021) Review (4/5)

The Suicide Squad (2021) is an amazing movie that is unpredictable at every moment in the film. The movie is very different from the other superhero movies. Yet, the characters are supervillains according to the DC comics but they did incredible work for humanity in the movie.

The visuals effects, the sound effects, and the terrific bloody scenes with the finishing quality, all are brilliant. The thing that makes the film special is not its storyline but the direction and its unique way of presentation. The comical scenes, the gruesome scenes, the comedy scenes, and even the flowers in the fighting of Harley Quinn are unexpected, and that is the more entertaining thing of the movie.

Still, after giving an amazing movie that is entirely different from other superhero franchises, the movie would not gain profit from the box office.
