The Suicide Squad We Should’ve Seen
Well, I’ve seen it. I got my greedy little paws on the ORIGINAL cut of Suicide Squad and to be blunt, the one we bloody should have been given! It basically changed most of the movie for me. It fell a bit flat in my opinion after seeing this version .
It was much darker and less generic as its been called while still maintaining it’s cartoon feel. Just as I stated in my last article, it depicted Joker and Harley’s relationship differently. We saw more of the original “Mad Love” story from Miss Quinn’s origin.
We also saw more of other Squad member’s back stories. Killer Croc went more into the gang underworld and it also dove a bit more into his beauty comments like what we saw in the bar scene. Boomerang, Katana, Flag and even Slipknot were featured more. The only character basically untouched was Deadshot. Now we know why his performance was the most well recieved of the film. Also the fact Ayer wrote him spot on and Will Smith pulled him off amazingly.
I’m now totally convinced Warner Brother’s reasoning for edits was not to match the trailers, considering several scenes seen in them were edited, but to remove certain undertones in the movie. There’s abuse and even direction towards serial rape. Remember, these are in fact villains . They’re not heroes .
This also brings me to a topic of a discussion I had yesterday. Could this be a move on WB’s part to make more money from DVD sales ? After the release of the Ultimate Cut of BvS and critics newly praising it, maybe they’re thinking it will peak more interest in fans and non fans alike. Maybe I’m just crazy. There’s also that. They need to remember its the fans who are important and this cut has disappointed many of us. They may lose directors in the future as well. ..
Basically the uncut version of Ayer’s film is what should’ve been released in theaters. The edited version was a bit choppy at times and the original version , in my opinion, showed his vision in a more upfront manor. I hope they do release it uncut.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/the-suicide-squad-we-shouldve-seen/https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/2568-the-wb-box.jpg?fit=300%2C300&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/2568-the-wb-box.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1ComicsEntertainmentMoviesNews and UpdatesRecent PostsTV ShowsDavid Ayer,WBWell, I've seen it.
