‘Suicide Squad’ Cast Members React To Negative Critic Reviews

The reviews for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad hit the web on Tuesday, August 2, and weren’t positive…to say the least. The film currently sits at a 28% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is only a percentage point higher than the controversial Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Digital Spy chatted with Squad actors Joel Kinnaman, Jay Hernandez, and Karen Fukuhara about the negative response to the film. Here’s what they had to say.

“You know, of course you want, you know, critical acclaim, of course, but what matters is what the fans think. So, you know, we’re really proud of this film, we loved making it, everybody on the film has become close friends; this is like a work of love, you know, and I hope the fans like it”. -Kinnaman.


“I think it sucks. I mean, you know, obviously we worked hard and tried to give the fans what they wanted, and it’s, it’s weird that like that some of the criticism I heard was that it was too much like a comic book you know what I’m saying, in term of like, you have these characters uh, uh, being objectified like Harley Quinn. I’m like if, I mean there’s certain elements that are just part of being a comic book, and if you’re trying to portray that on a film you have to sort of be true to that because if you don’t the fans of the comics are going to be offended ya know, so it’s like you’re trying to satisfy a lot of people. I think we did it, so I think critics could kiss my ass”. -Hernandez.


“You know we honestly made it for the hardcore DC fans and I just hope that they enjoy the movie. I can’t wait till August 5th until everyone can see it. I know a lot of people are going to the midnight showing, so (heart shape) much love”. -Fukuhara.

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5.
