Fans And Critics Have An Epic Clash Before A Blockbuster Release


David Ayer

They may not have seen the film yet, but they were tired of critics slating their beloved universe after not-so-nice reviews for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year. On the aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, both Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad share a weak 27% favourability rating among critics. So one fan went so far as to set up a petition to shut Rotten Tomatoes down because of the "unjust bad reviews". From Egypt, Abdullah Coldwater says the aim of his petition is to "deliver a message to the critics that there is a lot of people who disagree with their reviews", even though none of the fans had seen the movie yet. Neither had most critics.

In a follow-up tweet, Ayer went on to explain: "Zapata quote is my way of saying I love the movie and believe in it. Made it for the fans. Best experience of my life."

Is it really wise to trust your most dangerous sworn enemies? Sometimes you have little choice when there are threats in the world too brutal to put your best men on. Amanda Weller is in charge of a top secret government organisation known as A.R.G.U.S. They have in their detainment some of the world's craziest psychopaths, supervillains and powerful mutants, and while they are being of no use to society stuck in prison cells, Weller introduces a brand new team known as the Suicide Squad in which these criminals can carry out seemingly impossible missions with the promise of freedom or, at least, reduced sentences.
