    Working together isn't just for the good guys. Sometimes, even the toughest of the toughest supervillains need to assemble for the greater bad. But maybe, "Suicide Squad" can bring it all together for the success of the highly-disappointing DCEU, especially after the ever-so-mediocre "Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice."

    Playing as the Nick Fury of DC, Viola Davis portrays Amanda Waller, a government agent who recruits a group of baddies in stopping havoc and supernatural threats that may arise after Superman's death. These are the bad guys that should be hated, but instead we just like them.

    Yes, the movie is not without its flaws. But that won't stop Suicide Squad from being a solid comic book movie. Everything from the color scheme to the movie posters to the character style is not afraid to delve in to the lighter side of the DCEU, like what the comics is.

    And while there are some characters that are more fleshed out than others, there are also some strong performances from its star-studded ensemble. Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Jay Hernandez are among the highlights of the movie.

    In terms of the script, Suicide Squad fails to provide yet another compelling main antagonist - in this case, a generic, hula-hooping witch named Enchantress. At least, she has all the beauty.

    VERDICT: Suicide Squad is a rollercoaster ride. Sometimes it's high. Sometimes, it's low. But just like a rollercoaster ride, it's a ton of crazy fun.
