I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
One of the things I loved about the original suicide squad was how political it was. How it created strong female characters. It had things to say, and it said them, and I think this might be why it felt so directed. Pointedly so.
I'm loving this incarnation of the Squad, but I think parting Flag and Harley up was a mistake. It's things like that which make me feel like this has no direction. I see the purpose of it narratively, but there seems to be no larger direction, no larger statement about the world and its politics, and that makes it feel like a bit like a ship at sea with no rudder to me.
I'm hoping this pulls together soon.
