David Ayer Responds To ‘Suicide Squad’ Reviews

The reviews are in for Suicide Squad – DC’s latest film in their Extended Universe of films that bring these beloved comic book characters to the silver screen. Sadly, the film is not being greeted warmly by critics, with the many reactions underwhelming fans. So much so that a select group have decided to start a petition to shut down the review aggregating site, Rotten Tomatoes.

Despite the mixed-to-negative response, director David Ayer is keeping his chin up and standing with his finished product. Today in response to the many reviews released after the film’s embargo was lifted, the director took to Twitter and shared a quote by Emiliano Zapata.

Ayer then went on to explain the reasoning for sharing that Zapata quote:

Regardless of how the moviegoing public will respond to the film on a broader scale, it is still nice to see that Ayer seems satisfied with how his film turned out. And when he refers to the production being the best experience of his life, I believe him. Of course, opinions may change once I see the film for myself, but that does not stop me from respecting David Ayer’s response.

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 the next film in the DC Extended Universe following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Written and directed by David Ayer and the film stars Viola Davis, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz , Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne, Adam Beach, and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut.
