THE SUICIDE SQUAD Rotten Tomatoes Score Revealed Alongside A Badass New Poster Highlighting Task Force X
The Suicide Squad review embargo lifted earlier today, and it's fair to say that James Gunn's take on Task Force X has been received quite a bit differently to David Ayer's back in 2016. Check it out...
The DC Extended Universe has never fared particularly well with critics, and there are definitely more Rotten movies than Fresh in that shared world.
However, it looks like all Warner Bros. needed was a director familiar with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because The Suicide Squad has debuted on Rotten Tomatoes with a perfect 100% score! That's based on 47 verdicts from critics, and while there are bound to be some people who don't like the movie (well, possibly), this is an incredible start for the DC Comics adaptation.
"Enlivened by writer-director James Gunn's singularly skewed vision, The Suicide Squad marks a funny, fast-paced rebound that plays to the source material's violent, anarchic strengths," reads the current Critics Consensus.
This 100% score is quite a contrast to the 26% that 2016's Suicide Squad has, and in case it wasn't already clear, these two movies are completely different beasts.
With this news comes a badass new poster for the movie that features several members of Task Force X being bussed into action as Idris Elba's Bloodsport leads the way. The marketing for this movie has been great, and we're anticipating it picking up in a big way over the next week.
