Where do we even go with this movie?’ is a question asked both right here in this review and also, most probably, some years ago by the people who made the film.

Because watching it, it’s pretty clear that there’s been a lot of disagreements over what Suicide Squad should be, and as a result, a lot of differing opinions over what Suicide Squad is.

Suicide Squad follows the exploits of Task Force X; a unit of super-villains created by government agent Amanda Waller to protect the world in light of Superman’s passing at the end of Batman v Superman. However, before Waller’s pet-project can kick off, one of its members, the Enchantress, turns out to be too much to handle, and with the help of her demonic brother, begins wreaking havoc in Midway City. Now it’s up to the ‘Suicide Squad’ to bring down the rogue gone rogue.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD | DVD Review

I seem to have misplaced my copy of Iron Man 3, presumably when I moved house, so for now, we’re just going to skip straight ahead to the second film in the Thor franchise, The Dark World.

RELEASED: November 8th 2013
DIRECTED BY: Alan Taylor
WRITTEN BY: Don Payne, Robert Rodat, Christopher Yost, Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely
PRODUCED BY: Kevin Feige
STARRING: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgård, Kat Dennings, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Ray Stevenson, Tadanobu Asano, Zachary Levi, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo, Anthony Hopkins, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje & Christopher Eccleston

After his adventure with the Avengers, Thor Odinson returns to Earth, when his love, Jane Foster, is endangered by a primordial force known as the Aether. Bringing her to Asgard, Jane finds herself confronted with the pantheon of Gods Thor calls family. However, Jane’s discovery has also awakened a threat long thought dead; that of the Dark Elves and their leader, Malekith. With the whole of reality at stake, Thor and Jane must seek the aid of Loki, the villain responsible for endangering planet Earth.

After Kenneth Branagh did a magnificent job with Thor, the reigns of the franchise were passed over to Game of Thrones‘ Alan Taylor, and as you can imagine, the series took a more dark and violent turn. In that turn, a lot of the heart and comic-book-y tone was lost, and as a result, the film seems not only directionless but also as if it’s made by people who don’t really understand the characters.
