Suicide Squad is currently having bad reviews from the critics and it is sitting at a 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, but there are some out there who loved the film. Still, the response has been overwhelmingly negative so far, and Reuters caught up with the cast and writer/director David Ayer on the red carpet to ask them about their feelings about the reviews so far:
Cara Delevingne: “The critics have been absolutely horrific. They’re really, really horrible. You know, I just don’t think they like superhero movies. I know there’s a lot of them. This movie isn’t perfect, but it’s a wonderful film. The characters are incredible, we all worked really, really hard, and it doesn’t really matter what the critics say at the end of the day, it’s the fans that we made this movie for.”
Margot Robbie: “Critical acclaim is really nice, but we made it for the fans. If the fans like it, then we did our job.”
David Ayer: “I made the movie for real people who live in the real world. I made the movie for people who actually love movies and go and see movies. The movie’s a lot of fun and the fans are really going to enjoy it.”
Will Smith: “What [Ayer] did, what he was able to create, how he was able to take this DC world and bend it into a really different thing, he made it a really unique thing, you know? I think people had expectations that may have been different, but I’m excited for the fans to get to vote.”
Have you seen the movie, what you think about it?
