It’s a little while before viewers can check out the new movie from Suicide squad. In Brazil, the production will be available on HBO Max and in some theaters from August 5th this year. However, many critics have already been able to check the sequel and have shared their main impressions through social media.
Apparently, the film seems to be full of violence, while having a comic charge in most of its scenes. The film is set on the island of Corto Maltese, a remote place full of dangers.
In short: the government summons the group formed by Harlequina (Margot Robbie), Bloodthirsty (Idris Elba), Peacemaker (John Cena), King Shark (Steve Agee and Sylvester Stallone), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Rat Cat 2 (Daniela Melchior), Sage (Peter Capaldi), Blackguard (Peter Davidson), Dart (Flura Borg) and Bolinha (David Dastmalchian) for an extremely dangerous mission on the spot.
Despite being armed head-to-toe, anti-heroes don’t know what they can find in front of them, considering that their enemies are scattered everywhere. With that in mind, the characters must band together in order to find and destroy the infamous Starfish Project.
Reviews of Suicide squad highlight cast performances
The pros who set out to see James Gunn’s film before all viewers have left their social media followers even more anxious about what they can find in the Aug. 5 DC production.
Brandon Davis, from comicbook, for example, pointed out several aspects of the film, which even manage to be antagonistic and complementary at the same time. The critic commented that the cast is very well integrated in the universe created for the narrative.
“Suicide squad it’s absolutely insane. Violent as hell, bold, relentless. James Gunn is totally shameless. Sometimes it can be oppressive. There are moments of heart, humor, action, emotion… All of that. Relentless. There is nothing like it,” he wrote.
#TheSuicideSquad is absolutely insane. Violent as hell, raunchy, unforgiving.
James Gunn is fully unleashed. It’s sometimes overwhelming. It has moments of heart, humor, action, emotion… all of it. Relentless.

Kara Warner, from the magazine people, praised Gunn’s character development and direction. According to the journalist, who said she was skeptical about this sequence, Arlequina and Caça-Ratos 2 bring very fun moments to the public.
“It’s a really crazy movie, but in really fun ways. If you were wondering if James Gunn and his cast could do everything the material asked for, rest assured, they can,” he published.
“Everyone is really fun to watch, but Margot Robbie’s Arlequina and Daniela Melchior’s Rat Cat 2 are my favorites — and the chemistry between Idris Elba and John Cena comes in third. Not to mention an amazing soundtrack!”, he concluded.
So this skeptic loved #TheSuicideSquad. It is balls to the wall *bonkers* in very entertaining ways. i.e. If you’re wondering whether James Gunn and that super rad @SuicideSquadWB cast would truly go there w/ the material & the R-rating, indeed they DO. pic.twitter.com/hQoGljScTx

He further stressed that viewers will enjoy James Gunn’s work and will want to watch it all immediately after the credits go up. “It’s a violent, hilarious and unpredictable blockbuster. Everyone will have their own [personagem] favorite of this incredible cast,” he commented.
