Well, we know where the critics stand on Suicide Squad. The less-than-stellar score on Rotten Tomatoes is a fair indication that to say the reviews are mixed might be a generous assessment of the critics' collective opinion. Now that the movie is out, it's time for the fans to weigh in.
Between the DC fans who have been waiting a long time to see the likes of Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez) and other DC antiheroes teamed up on the big screen, and those of us who have yet to succumb to superhero fatigue, anticipation was high for Suicide Squad this summer. Does it deliver?
