The Suicide Squad: read the first reactions to James Gunn's DC epic

DC's The Suicide Squad gets a fresh injection of crazy courtesy of director James Gunn. The filmmaker is a dab hand with oddball ensemble movies, having helmed the two Guardians of the Galaxy films for Marvel (the third is on its way). And yet, by the sounds of it, The Suicide Squad is unfettered, gloriously gruesome and wonderfully rude in the way that the Guardians movies could only dream of. Not convinced?

Here are some initial reactions to the film, which pairs franchise stalwarts Margot Robbie and Viola Davis with a bevy of new faces including Idris Elba, John Cena, Peter Capaldi and Sylvester Stallone.


The Suicide Squad is released in Cineworld cinemas on 30th July.
