Eek, I forgot to share this review. Whoooopppppssss. Anyways...back to original review -
I've been very undecided if I wanted to watch this movie. Superhero movies are a hit and miss for me. Sometimes they are good, sometimes they make me want to bash my head into the wall.
I think the deciding factor for me to finally watch this is because this was not technically a superhero movie, it is a super villain movie....and the trailer looks so badass. Sooo...yes, I went with my friend to watch this. I took a gamble...
And I was surprised...this was good. Not amazing, but it was good and worth the watch. The cast well picked. I think they did a good job. The only issue I had was with who they picked for the Joker. He was okay...but I hated his look and costume. I get what look they were going for (modern gangsters and whatnot), but it didn't work for me. I think it took away from the creepiness the Joker is suppose to give off. Also, the actress for Enchantress bugs me. I can't stop staring at her eyebrows. That is the only interesting about her. Her acting is sub-par at best. Also, I feel that for a first movie they should've picked a different baddie. They should've saved her for a later movie. Other than that, I loved everyone else.
The fight scenes were fun even though the minions were creepy and gross. Why did they have be all melty and gross? Bllleeeehhhh
As much as I like the Joker and Harley Quinn, I wish that this was so centered around the two. The other baddies of the group are equally interesting and I feel the spotlight was a little biased. Maybe the next film (if they make one) will focus more on the other members. IF they do another movie they need to include Poison Ivy (she is my second favorite villain in that universe).
In the end, this was a surprisingly good movie. It was way better than I imagined and hoped for. Sure, it wasn't amazing, but it was good. There were some issues, but overall I enjoyed it. I do recommend this to those that like superheros/villains. I'll give this 4 stars.
