I’m pretty excited to see what James Gunn has up his sleeve THE SUICIDE SQUAD, but Joel Kinnaman has already seen the movie, and while it is certainly biased, something he freely admits, he said Variety which is above everything Gunn has done. “We saw it a couple of days ago“Kinnaman said.”It’s crazy. It is by far James Gunn’s best film.“That’s good enough for me. Oh, do you want more? Here it goes.

Joel Kinnaman went on to explain that Suicide squad “it just takes it to another level,“adding that”it was very much the movie that I thought it was going to be because the vision was so clear from the start. As we filmed it, it was very clear what we were doing. It is so entertaining. Of course, I’m hopelessly biased, but it seemed like one of the most entertaining movies I’ve ever seen.. “Kinnaman continued:
From A to Z, he’s got such a good pacing, he’s got such comical momentum and timing. It’s fun on the go all the time, effortlessly. But then I think what really surprised me was how well it flowed, but also how he was able to create these little bubbles, these little moments of emotional depth and visual and emotional poetry. And I felt like it really transcended the genre and became something bigger. And then he’s also very silly and ridiculous in many ways and super violent. Bloody almost at times. And it has shocking moments, but they are very funny. At the end of the movie, it’s completely normal to see this giant shark standing up nibbling on a person’s head, and some people just chatting next to him … When you’ve been on ‘Suicide Squad for an hour and 50 minutes,’ that will feel completely normal. It is so irreverent.
Along with Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman is one of the few actors in David Ayer’s film. Suicide squad come back for the sequel, but unlike the new movie, Kinnaman feels like Suicide squad it didn’t end up being the movie they hoped it would be. “I thought the first 40 minutes of the movie were fucking great, and then there were conflicting visions and it just didn’t turn out to be what we all expected.“Kinnaman said.”It didn’t feel like the movie we were hoping to make, and this is something very different. … It’s just a different universe. It’s a James Gunn universe. It is a very funny and depraved place.“
