Film Review - Suicide Squad Hell To Pay
Synopsis (From IMDB): Task Force X targets a mystical object that they will risk their lives to steal.
So here's the deal, Warner Bros I think we know how you can save your live-action cinematic universe. Let the creative teams behind the animated movies write those films. Suicide Squad Hell To Pay is the second DC animated film to feature the squad, the first film being Assualt On Arkham, which I thought was a great film by the way. This film follows an off the books mission for the squad to steal a literal get out of hell free card. If you have watched any of the previous DC animated films then you know that the animation is excellent and the voice acting is top notch. All of that remains the same for this outing. This film plays as sort of a sequel to Flashpoint Paradox in a way. I can't say any more than that as that will lead to spoiler territory, but when you watch it you will understand. I found the movie to be a lot of fun and I do like the character interactions. Harley Quinn once again steals the show as she normally does, her reactions to everything are priceless. The newcomers to the team in this one are Copperhead and Bronze Tiger. Bronze Tiger I thought was well done and his story arc was handled well. The pacing was done well and while there is violence the movie doesn't go overboard with it, in my opinion.
There wasn't much I could find wrong with this movie. In all honesty, if I had one complaint they had Count Vertigo at the beginning of the movie and I wish they had kept him around. He is one of my favorite DC villains so it was kind of weird to me for them to waste a character like that. Other than that I thought everything else worked well and I understood why they made some of the choices that they made.
This movie is rated R. There is a lot of violence and a little gore. There is also some foul language in there as well. Yeah, this one isn't for the little ones. The movie is paced well and has a run time of an hour and a half.
I enjoyed this movie. Most of the DC animated movies are pure gold and this one is another good one to add to the collection. Also, and this is important, the Joker does not appear in this movie and for that I am thankful. Oh and neither does Batman for that matter. So have you seen the movie yet? What is your favorite DC animated movie? Leave a comment and as always thanks for reading.
