Midweek dates are a rare occurrence in our house as the planning involved in organising a babysitter and getting both kids to bed before we leave is more like a military operation than a date but after finding out earlier in the year that another film in the DC franchise (Suicide Squad) was due to be released in August I pencilled in the date and lined up a babysitter plus a backup just in case.
I’m a big Will Smith fan and my OH is a bit of a DC nerd so this was one movie we didn’t want to miss, although to be honest we have been to the cinema slightly more than usual this year due to the fascination with all things DC/Marvel. All I can say is thank goodness for Meerkat Movies 🙂
I must admit that after watching Batman v Superman I went along with mixed feelings about this movie. I was really hoping it would be better than Batman v Superman (which wouldn’t be too difficult) and I wasn’t disappointed.
The film moves pretty quickly whilst also providing you a bit of a backstory for each of the characters and I was hooked from pretty early on, although I would like to have seen a bit more of a plot/storyline.
My favourite character without doubt was Harley Quinn, played by Margot Robbie. Her interaction with Will Smith and the other Suicide Squad members made me laugh and her relationship with Jared Leto’s Joker was perfect (although for me the role Joker will always belong to Heath Ledger).
Have you seen it yet? If so I’d love to know what you thought.
