Just came back from seeing Suicide Squad and I can honestly say it was an enjoyable movie. I feel like the characters played their parts well, visually it was great and overall its a good step that DC is taking in their on screen projects that make me a little more excited for Justice League, Wonder Woman ect.
Don't get me wrong, this is not the greatest movie of the year or anything like that. There were plenty of corny one liners, predictable events, slow moving plot and a soundtrack that was all over the shop.
However a lot of reviews on this movie have been very harsh, and a little unnecessary. I feel like that weird mob mentality comes into play with people hating movies based on someones opinion and getting on that band wagon of hatred.
This frustrates me as I feel that people are giving up the opportunity to make up their own mind and come to their own conclusions. The go in with a list of things in their head that a so called "expert" has told them that are wrong and as a result they will find those faults, thus ruining their experience.
My opinion, and take this with a grain of salt, is that if it is a movie that you are genuinely excited about, ignore all reviews. Don't even read them because they will just put you in the wrong perspective. Go in and sit through it. Enjoy it or hate it but make sure the conclusion is yours. If it sucked then jump online and see what others thought about it but don't give up that potential for real enjoyment because some other person on a complete other walk of like did not agree with it.
Sometimes it will pay off and other times the movie will genuinely be crap. I've been burnt by this. Very excited for Jupiter Ascending. After seeing it, it is probably the worst thing I've ever seen but that is my own conclusion ad if you haven't seen it then ignore me and go check it out for yourself.
Enjoy what you want to enjoy and don't let others dictate what you can and can't like.
