Suicide Squad Review! (Plus Closet Harley Cosplay)
Ciao lovelies! So I went to see Suicide Squad yesterday, and I loved it! **Please note that this review contains spoilers!**
Harley was my favorite character, mainly because we got to see a lot of her character development, but also because I love Margot Robbie. She's so beautiful, and makes a fantastic Harley Quinn!
I might make her my new waifu, sorry Mr J!
The soundtrack to the movie was amazing, and I thoroughly enjoyed that they fleshed out characters like Diablo and Deadshot to be more than just your usual villains. I don't like that we didn't get any character development for other characters like Katana, Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang, or The Enchantress. I mean, they gave more characterization to the nasty guard at the...err. I don't know if it was supposed to be Arkham Asylum or not, to be honest. But still. They gave him more characterization than some of the main team members. I also think the implied "budding romance" between Katana and Captain Boomerang was very forced, and I hope if they make a sequel they will change their relationship dynamic to be an understanding platonic friendship. There isn't any need for the characters to be together other than additional screentime, really.
I also think that Waller should have grown to be understanding of the characters, I mean Harley is right when she asks for thanks for saving the world. It's true, the characters did save the world. Just because they were villains doesn't just discredit that.
But overall, the movie was quite enjoyable. I enjoyed the casting for the characters, Margot Robbie did an excellent job as Harley, Will Smith was a very good Deadshot. The movie did a good job as showing the characters as something more than just evil, and smudged the lines between "good guys" and "bad guys" in the DC cinematic universe, which adds great intrigue to the overall universe. No character should be only one thing. DC did a great job of fleshing out the characters and giving them complicated motives and dreams.
So to go see the movie, I wanted to dress up, so I did a closet cosplay of Harley. I didn't have her actual costume obviously, so this isn't a very accurate cosplay. But I did my best given the materials. It was just for fun after all. It's kind of a "Harley Inspired" movie viewing outfit.
I may do a full cosplay later on! If I can bear showing so much skin.
