director David Ayer
Great idea, great character designs, a wholly rotten mess.
The worst: Jared Leto. Easily.
Perhaps the character that embodies this mess most is Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. A hugely popular character, Robbie is designed well, but every single thing she says is a quip to be cut into a trailer; she is absolute nothingness.
Making the villains into “good guys” seems counter to the concept of why this idea could have been interesting. There’s not psychology here except standard generic screenwriter mentality stuff.
Who knows how much studio meddling brought this down and how much a pile or crap it was anyways. It’s amazing that DC has developed such a definitive record of failure since Christopher Nolan delivered the last of his Batman series. And if anything, this seems to promise only more failure to come.
