In 2016, many were waiting in an amicable way for a crazy movie about the adventures of antiheroes, but they were disappointed. And now, after 5 years, the brainchild of James Gunn appears on the screens, on which they believed even more hopes. Did you do something funny this time? I think yes. Was it a masterpiece? I think no.
According to the plot, a squad of antiheroes (although most of them are anti-villains) are sent to the colorful banana republic – Corto Maltese. They have to deal with a certain project called ‘Starfish’. However, only a few will manage to survive. .. at least up to the first third of the film!
Yes, Gann did not deceive us – you should not get attached to the heroes. They die like flies, often quite stupidly. However, 2 hours was enough to explain the motives and fears of the main characters. It turned out especially well to reveal Bloodsport (Idris Elba). He is not a cardboard hero with a manipulative story (as was the case with the rather similar Bloodshot and El Diablo from the 2016 film), but a complex character. Plus, Margot Robbie has finally played the very best version of her Harley Queen. Feminine but not objectified, crazy but not random. Gunn has not forgotten about the skills of the gymnast of this character from the 2016 movie – Harley uses them, and does it very beautifully! In my opinion, it was Harley Queen who got the best action scene in the film – captivating, ideal for adaptation in a computer game. John Cena (The Peacemaker) is hilarious – the artsy Captain America, the more comic version of Homelander from Boys! Perfect hit! I also fell in love with the charming Pea-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian) and Pied Piper 2 (Daniela Melsior). Get Latin Dictators and Tropico-inspired rebels as a bonus!
As much as I praise the actors and the director, the film cannot be called a masterpiece for all time, a breakdown of the genre. No – there are a lot of blunders here. During an attack on one camp, our detachment makes a lot of noise, and the victims manage to scream – but, literally a few meters away, other people from this camp behave completely calmly, they do not hear anything. If you try, you can find a lot of blunders. ..
… but I don’t feel like doing it. I was promised a spectacular and trashy film – and I received a spectacular and trashy film. The new picture is quite independent, it works without any special connection to the DC universe. If in the 2016 film we were shoved by the Joker and Batman (who have already been replaced in the film franchise), then Gann limited himself to only references and one mention of Superman. Well, Margot Robbie in the image of Harley Queen will fall in love even with those who have not seen her in previous films. If you are not afraid of indecent, sometimes even downright stupid, humor, blood and guts – then you have come to the right place!
