If there is anything that really stood out about Suicide Squad besides the film’s characters, the visual effects of the movie really shined through. The cinematography helped add an interesting aesthetic that screamed David Ayer’s sensibilities but also still kept consistent with where the DC Extended Universe is heading into.
Surely, there was plenty of practical effects used throughout the film (I’m still blown away by the makeup for Killer Croc), but with every major comic book film, computer generated imagery is an important tool to bringing some of the incredible visuals to the screen. Moving Picture Company (MPC) worked on both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, and they recently shared some photos from the film that showcased shots from the film both before and after the VFX were implemented.
These images are definitely giving you a sense of the hard work these VFX artists brought to this film. My personal favorite shots in this gallery involve Diablo. The use of fire in this film was so well done, and that’s a credit to the VFX artists. I’m always blown away at how CGI can be fused effortlessly into a movie in ways that are not so obvious such as landscapes and backgrounds.
It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad is in theaters now. You can start the VFX gallery down below.
