Suicide Squad Hell to Pay: A step down from other recent efforts
I'm one of those weird people who really enjoyed Suicide Squad (2016) I also thought Assault On Arkham (2014) was great. In fact I like the Suicide Squad concept in general so upon hearing about Hell to Pay I was quite excited.
This time our team includes Deadshot, Harley, Boomerang, Copperhead, Killer Frost & Bronze Tiger in an interesting little three way battle against Zoom, Blockbuster & Banshee and third team of Vandal Savage, Scandal Savage and their goons.
The whole thing is over a mysterious card that saves a person from hell and their motivations are quite interesting. Then we have the usual brand of DC action and the film is a passable effort, but just that......passable.
Hell To Pay doesn't meet its potential and I'm not 100% on why that is. Maybe it needed more time, perhaps the story needed fleshing out more? Regardless it didn't grip me like Assault on Arkham did.
I'd say this is a good watch for big fans, a passable one for casual ones but maybe a hard pass for everyone else.
It's the Suicide Squad!
Ties Flashpoint Paradox (2013)
Behaves like Assault On Arkham never happened
Harley looks like a dude in drag a lot of the time
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
If a head is encased in ice when it explodes both it and the ice will still remain intact despite blowing everything up around it
Harley always walks that fine line between fascinating and deeply annoying
Amanda Wallers weight fluctuates dramatically between movies
