Suicide Squad yielded a cast, full of top class actors barely holding up the weight of a clumsy narrative lacking a clear focus. It relied heavily on the talent of the cast and wrote the characters thinly. It’s graphic technique and comic book stylization came across tacky and juvenile rather than clever. Characters were there for convenience and were deprived of any individual development. Even the major players, Deadshot (Will Smith) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) were given so-so character arcs. The antagonist didn’t give much of an identifiable motive and the Enchantress possible danger was astray, making her more mindless than threatening. Overall i enjoyed watching the movie online.
Genuinely laughed at this movie, and not in a good way. Some of the dialogue was ridiculous. “I live underground, y’all are just tourists” is a prime example, however you could argue that it fit in with killer crocs character. I would agree with this if he had a character, and this flaw is shared with EVERY OTHER CHARACTER IN THE MOVIE except maybe Will Smith as Deadshot. Overall, I cannot recommend that you free download this movie, for its poor direction, passable acting and terrible writing, however it is partially understandable because of the countless behind-the-scenes issues present during the production of this movie, hence the full star, rather than half a star.
Love this movie. Okay, I think it's more than a bit a rehash of The Wedding Singer, but I can excuse that because it's just such fun to watch! I love the Pop song too, even though Hugh Grant probably shouldn't sing. I have to admit after my first rewatch in years, I upgraded this to five stars and got on eBay looking for the soundtrack! Cora is a great character too, I enjoyed her parts. Drew Barrymore need I say more. She does these funny rom com roles so well, and her clothes are beautiful here too. The bit where Hugh's washed up rock star nearly puts his hip out doing his moves on stage gave me a laugh.

'Good Kill' is a thought-provoking and engaging drama for about an hour, then it takes a bizarre tonal shift which just didn't fit. Ethan Hawke is great as usual playing conflicted Air Force pilot who helps run the counter terrorism drone program. There are a lot of important questions raised and we're not beaten over the head with them. It's subtle and much appreciated, however when the narrative changes from Hawke's moral dilemmas to his personal life the viewer will be left lost and disappointed. Bruce Greenwood, playing Hawke's commanding officer, is awesome. Overall, unless you're a Hawke completist like I am this is missable. Final Score: 5.5/10

A different and unique perspective on modern warfare. The story of drone pilots is a fascinating one. They arguably have one of the most important roles in modern warfare and they do it from a chair thousands of miles from the battlefields. This film shows the mental toll it takes on one pilot in particular. Ethan Hawke gives a solid performance and January Jones and Bruce Greenwood offer some nice support. The film as a whole is rather good but I wasn't thrilled with the ending and it knocked it from a 4 to a 3.5 for me. Still a very good modern war film!
