The Director of Suicide Squad Knows That You Hated His Film and He's Sorry
If you were one of the millions of people who bought into the considerable hype surrounding Suicide Squad, only to be left feeling hurt and bewildered by its heady, but unquestionably awful execution, then its director David Ayer has some words for you: he's sorry... sort of.
The man who took charge of the cult DC Universe adaptation, Ayer had previously hit success with both Fury and End of Watch, but found himself hung out to dry after critics responded to the film with almost unanimous disapproval.
How we felt sitting through 2h 16 minutes of this film.
Writing in a Twitter post January 22, Ayer acknowledged his disappointment with certain elements of the film and its story, but he can explain...
Obviously this doesn't make us like the film anymore, but it does go some way in explaining the difficulties that directors and crew must be under to deliver a great end product.
Hopefully the inevitable sequel rights a few wrongs.
