David Ayer's blockbuster project Suicide Squad may have gotten the lion's share of attention in this Comic-Con cycle, but early reviews indicate the project might have been all flash, no substance. (Rolling Stone's Peter Travers would have you believe it's because of Ayer's "willingness to go all limp-dick and compromise his hardcore action bona fides.")

From Vanity Fair's assessment that the project is "a muddy and smothering soup of wasted possibility" to IndieWire's opinion that the film is "mind-bogglingly stupid," we've gathered the best (or worst?) reviews of Suicide Squad

Here's it all broken down--the good and the bad, the sexist and sloppy.

From Vanity Fair:

"A tired image, a stale and meaningless stab at grandeur."

The Hollywood Reporter:

"A puzzlingly confused undertaking that never becomes as cool as it thinks it is."


"Mundane, milquetoast, and often mind-bogglingly stupid."


"A weird movie ... A strange blend of different tones, stories, and pacing all mashed into something that has cool individual elements, but never really comes together."

Rolling Stone:

"I call bullshit."

The verdict: Maybe save yourself the $15 bucks and go see something else—literally anything else—instead.
