Update: Suicide Squad (2016)



We've already reviewed the theatrical release of Suicide Squad, here, where it garnered little more than complains about tonal imbalances and choppy story telling, gaining only a three star rating.




So, does the extended cut help?

Actually, yes, greatly. The extended cut is certainly the one to watch. Adding less than 15 minutes runtime to the movie means that unlike Batman v Superman's extended edition it doesn't suffer with bloat.

In fact, most of the problems addressed are the tonal changes. There are actually transitions between things now. It makes the film flow better. And the character effected most? No, not the Joker, but Harley. Her back story is fleshed out properly. I can't say that the film is perfect with the additions, but believe me, they are required viewing.
