Movie Review (8.5/10) “Great!”
Suicide Squad Extended Cut
Director: David Ayer
If you didn’t like the theatrical edition of this movie, then this version won’t persuade you that this is a good movie. But if you were a fan of the theatrical edition and you watch this version, the you won’t be able to go back to the theatrical edition because this edition fleshes out the characters a bit more and explains a few more things.
Things that were added or changed:
-extended intros (David Ayer has a cameo!)
-extended torture scene of Joker torturing Dr. Harleen Quinzel.
-new chase scene with Quinzel and the Joker.
-more dialogue and interaction between the Squad members: my favorite scene was probably the one between Harley Quinn and Katana.
-the movie extends the scenes of how the weird looking putty creatures that served Enchantress came to be and explains what they are more in detail (I don’t know why this was left on the cutting floor).
-extended action scenes as the fight on the street, fight in the building, and the last fight scenes get more material. This actually helped the underwater Killer Croc scene since and you could see more clearer what was going on during that time.
If you loved the theatrical edition then I recommend you get this version of the movie as it will only add to your enjoyment of this movie, and you get more character development from the Squad members. However, if you thought the extra 15 minutes of footage could somehow save the movie you did not like, I would say that you should pass on it because the story is pretty much still the same, and this version of the movie doesn’t fix all of the problems of the theatrical version of the film.
