Seeing as its many trailers quickly became a huge hit earlier this year, this film was perhaps the swiftest to escalate to the top of my must-watch movies chart. As soon as I saw the official trailer (which, by the way has over 70 million views as of September 2016) and scrolled down the list of moviegoers it would feature; I grew intrigued in the snap of a finger. The trailer was weird yet simultaneously thrilling—the oddity of it was greater, if I were to say. Perhaps the eccentricity of it was what had drawn in millions of views. I was no less than utterly perplexed as to why they had chosen the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ as the backing track to the movie trailer. Not to say that it’s an awful track on its own, but it’s simply bizarre when paired together with the trailer. I’m sure I’m not the only person who thinks that; but it has to be stated.
But bearing in mind that the starring actors and actresses are mostly of very credible profiles; I gave the oddity a pass. Certainly, with Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Cara Delevingne—to name a few—starring in it, the production company must be up to something sensational.
And I was right! The film was hugely sensational!—in a good and a bad way for me personally. It didn’t bore me out for sure, but it repelled and baffled me in a lot of ways. I liked their main idea, which is to gather the best of the worst super-villains in the planet do some good; in this case—fight off the more powerful wicked entities. Yet I didn’t turn up a big fan of how the movie unfurled. In fact, I was too bewildered and confused to be able to appreciate much of the movie aesthetics. I couldn’t quite grasp their plot and the rationality behind it.
But when there’s a contra, there’s a pro. There were definitely elements that I loved about this movie—the primary aspects being the diversity in characters and how marvelously they were played. I liked the array of traits and personalities each character possesses; including the unique prefaces of each of their lives as told in the beginning of the movie. The humor in it, I also enjoyed. Meanwhile, I must applaud the actors and actresses for their brilliant performances. They thoroughly embodied their roles, and are in short, the best set of actors for this movie in particular.
I recommend this film those who are curious!
