Personally, I loved it. It was the most fun I've had at a DC movie in ages. Of the recent DC movies, I'd rank Wonder Woman above it, but that's probably the only one... and Suicide Squad's ending holds up much better than Wonder Woman's does.

I loved the various title cards Gunn used for the chapters, I dug how the cast was used (even though there's at least one death I was sorry to see), and I loved how Waller had a whole control-room team, like with the 80s comics...and how the presence of that team becomes pivotal at a key moment. 

And Starro. I love Starro, and now he belongs to the world! 

I enjoyed it, but not as much as I hoped I would. Basically, my reaction was about the same as I felt about the Hellboy reboot -- this movie is trying way too hard to earn its "R." I'm not offended. I just wish that a bigger hunk of creative energy had been directed towards something other than extra swears and gross-out visuals. That just feels lazy to me.

Starro, though, was awesome!

Loved it. Freewheeling, profane, and nobody but Harley Quinn and Peacemaker had plot armor.

Just finished watching it (hey, I can't see them all). Apart from the gratuitous gore, it's a fine realization of Suicide Squad the comic that John Ostrander gave us so long ago. (The very thought of seeing Starro on the big screen in a big budget movie boggles the mind.)
