A Sneak Peek at DC Universe's next animated movie: The Death of Superman
Great film by DC/WB Animation that takes risks and dares to be an animated adventure for mature audiences. One of the highlights of the film is that it takes place within the New 52 DC Animated Universe which began with JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR. The film is not perfect. There are some moments that feel forced, but the positives far outweigh the negatives. It's definitely worth picking up.
If you know anything about The GrindHouse style of movie making, then you know that it has a tendency to get gritty real quick. Suicide Squad H.T.P. is no exception to that rule. The only difference here is the fact you are watching an animated ( a very well done animation, I might add.) movie about characters that many people are just meeting from a movie ( Suicide Squad) that didn't do them much justice. [Side note: If you want to meet the gang properly, for the 1st time, without reading the great comic line, see Suicide Squad Assault on Arkham] Now back to the present. Suicide Squad H.T.P is yet another brilliant entry into the growing classics of the D.C.A.U. Keep in mind that DC has been upping the anti on adult themes. These guys are pushing for the R rating. It seems to me like they are catering to the fan. They are giving you what you need to see in movie adaptation of a comic series. The blood flows freely i this movie. This movie is NOT for your 7 year old's collection. These movies are for you baby! The fans that grew up . That have jobs. That pay for these movies. If you are DC comics fan, this movie should not disappoint. The story , the are, the acting and the action all played well together in this one. I guess by now you know that I'm going to recommend that you buy this movie. Well, I am , but remember, this movie is not for your kids. If you choose to let your kids watch it ad are okay with that, more power to you. But just know that this was not made with their young minds and eyes in mind.
Go enjoy this one. I do recommend that you watch it with a fellow comic fan. And bring some handy wipes.
I really enjoyed the movie going in a different direction. Of course a little to short for me, wish there was more to it. It's one of those stories you can do without but it's good enough to know where some of these side characters end up.
