Suicide Squad: Special Edition (DVD)
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?]]>

What comes with this purchase? This set comes with three discs, the Extended Blu-ray, the Theatrical Blu-ray, and the Theatrical DVD. Also included is the Ultraviolet Digital HD redemption code. Don't neglect the digital code, because the most interesting special features actually come with the digital version (more on that below). All three discs contain the same special features (which is a shame, because they could have taken advantage of all those extra discs to give us different special features on each disc). The extended version is English audio only, whereas multiple language options - and also an English descriptive audio track for the visually impaired - are included on the theatrical disc. There's no audio commentary track though (look for my rant on that below).
Extended cut: This cut is only about 10 minutes longer than the theatrical cut, so don't expect a substantially different version of the movie, a la the Batman V Superman Ultimate Edition. If you remember seeing many shots in the trailers that never made it into the theatrical cut (e.g., Katana's eyes turning black, Killer Croc apparently attacking Katana, Harley aiming her baseball bat like a shotgun, numerous Joker scenes, etc.), unfortunately most of those scenes are still missing, because for some reason they failed to make it into this Extended Cut. Thankfully, the funny bar scene, where Harley's taking everyone's orders, did make it in though. I was waiting for that scene when watching in the theater and was upset that it wasn't in the movie, so I'm glad that's back. In addition to little added moments throughout the film, the biggest added scenes are a flashback scene of Harley & Joker involving a motorcycle chase and a couple of walking-talking scenes where all the characters are conversing and getting to know each other better.
Special Features: Do not make the mistake of thinking all the special features are on the disc. The special features on the disc may seem a little bit lacking - it's just a few standard behind the scenes featurettes and a short gag reel (unfortunately no deleted scenes) - but the most interesting special features are actually part of the digital version. I redeemed my digital copy through VUDU, where you can access the special features by clicking on the Theatrical Version and choosing "Extras Plus" from the menu screen. There's a whole bunch of interesting extras in here, image galleries, videos that aren't on the disc, and more. The highlight has to be the cool 360° viewer feature, where you can move your phone/tablet device around in order to view Suicide Squad themed environments all around you through your device. They really should have advertised that these cool digital features are, in fact, included with this purchase, because I didn't even realize I had access to these features myself until I stumbled across them.
Major complaint: Once again, this Blu-ray lacks a commentary track. I say once again, because the Batman V Superman Blu-ray also didn't have any commentary track. This is weird, because previous DC/Warner movies, Man of Steel & Watchmen, actually have the best commentaries I've seen for any home version release of any movie. Warner Bros releases used to do what they called a "Maximum Movie Mode" which is a director's commentary, combined with featurettes, for an interesting and immersive behind-the-scenes look at the movie that was better than a regular commentary. It's upsetting enough that we no longer get that feature, but the complete lack of any regular audio commentary at all is a big negative for this Blu-ray. I wanted to hear what David Ayer, and the actors, etc. had to say about the movie. Whoever's in charge of these releases, you're making a mistake leaving out the commentaries.
As with all Ultra HD discs, you will need a special player; these will not play in a normal blu-ray player (but a normal blu-ray is also included in the set)
Right off the bad: The 4K disc does not include the Extended Cut, only the theatrical. The 1080p blu-ray does include the extended cut. There is also a 3D release of this movie which is not included (it's a separate purchase)
Suicide Squad on 4K was a mixed bag.
For a new movie, I feel that it could have looked a lot better. Like most current UHD titles, Suicide Squad was shot on high-end cameras but the effects and finished movie were mastered in 2K, meaning they upscaled that to 4K resolution. This limits the picture quality; it's better than Blu-Ray but nowhere near native 4K quality.
Right off the bat, picture quality is noticeably darker. It's not clear if this is a stylistic choice, but shots that look fine on the Blu-Ray (1080p) seem as though the brightness was lowered significantly on the 4K. Watching in a totally dark room is fine, but in any lit room it's far too dark.
Beyond that, there are additional details with the black levels; some detail is lost in the shadows and the black levels are raised a bit (to a dark grey) instead of a true black. I found that some of these issues were helped with adjusting the 4K Ultra HD Players' settings, but on a normal calibrated set the problems were very noticeable.
The picture quality would vary from shot to shot. Being filmed with a mix of film and digital, I found some cuts to look OK followed by some quick cuts that lookd GREAT. Almost all scenes did have a layer of digital noise above the picture. There were only a few moments that had a "That looks 4K" impression; the majority of shots looked as if they SHOULD HAVE been great looking, but you could easily tell the image was simply upscaled.
The HDR did add some nice saturation to some scenes (the neon moments).
I did not encounter any issues with the sound but do not have an atmos receiver; listened on a 7.1 surround setup and sounded fine. Nothing too impressive, but clear dialog and some good action scenes.
In the end:
I would probably recommend the 3D set (3D+2D+Digital HD) as it at least has a unique upgrade over the 1080p version.
If you have already bought either of the other versions (3D or 1080p Blu-Ray) I wouldn't recommend the upgrade to 4K. If you have a 4K TV and have not yet bought it, it's worth the extra few bucks to see for yourself how it looks. Reviews have been very mixed from "Great upgrade" to "Noticeable upgrade" to "Complete downgrade". I think everyone will agree the title is very dark on 4K and unless viewing it in a totally dark environment may affect viewing experience.
