List Rules Vote up the things you genuinely enjoyed in DC's Suicide Squad.

For all its faults, there are a lot of things Suicide Squad gets right. The DC Comics film landed with a resounding critical thud and it's easy to write off as another misstep for DC, but there's plenty to like in Suicide Squad. Yes, the plotting is clunky, a lot of the jokes fall flat, and it often feels like a Marvel movie, but David Ayer's film does manage to capture some of what makes the concept appealing in the first place. Audiences wanted a team of bad guys doing a bit of good and that's what they got. 

Some of the best parts of Suicide Squad are when the movie focuses on what makes these characters tick, allowing good actors to bring comic book characters to life through little details. Even if you didn't enjoy all two hours and ten minutes, there were almost certainly some moments that you enjoyed.

Vote up the best things in Suicide Squad, regardless of how much you enjoyed the film overall.
