VERDICT – 1/5

 

PROS –
1) Batman and Flash cameo
2) Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn poured her heart and soul in this role.
3) “Sucker for Pain” (Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa and Imagine Dragons.

 
CONS –
1) Putting iconic songs randomly throughout the movie is not a great move, it’s rather annoying.
2) Bunch of bad guys on a govt. mission to stop an ancient witch with powers on par with Dr. Manhattan.
3) So Enchantress can teleport from one part of the world to the other within seconds, destroy satellites in space and cut warships in half with her magical powers but can’t beat the Suicide Squad in hand-to-hand combat? She can read anyone mind and disillusion anyone into believing the impossible but she wasn’t able to know Harley Quinn’s mediocre plan to backstab her?
4) Jared Leto as The Joker: let’s forget this ever happened in DC Universe.

Blockers (2018)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 1/5

Pros –
1) Ike Barinholtz as Hunter – the only saving grace from this disaster
2) Gary Cole sub-plot provides some relief

 

Cons –
1) If you’ve seen the trailer then you can skip the first 60 minutes of the movie. Even the only sequence (beer chugging) where the writer tried to add slapstick humor was included in the trailer.
2) The movie is not funny. It never clicks. John Cena is trying to step foot in Will Ferrell shoes.
3) The only reason why it’s getting rave reviews of being a “progressive” teen-sex-comedy is due to the LGBT sub-plot
