Joel Kinnaman Happy With How Fans Of SUICIDE SQUAD Have Responded To The Film

With the borderline-negative reviews, most of the Suicide Squad cast seems to not be affected by them and the actor behind Rick Flag throws his two cents into the topic. Check it out.

The reviews for Suicide Squad have been utterly negative, with the film scoring lower than Batman V Superman, the film before it. Now, many of the actors do not seem affected by the reviews and have thrown the 'we made it for the fans' memo around, which is true to some capacity as the film is filled with easter eggs for fans.

Now, Rick Flagg actor Joel Kinnaman (which you may also know from House of Cards) spoke with Vulture and he talked about the critics. "I read a couple, but i didn't enjoy reading them so i stopped" Kinnaman said "They were not kind".  The actor went into detail about how he felt about the reviews.

"It’s always nicer when people say nice things about you. But on a film like Suicide Squad, it really only has an ambition to entertain. There’s no big political aspirations about the film; it doesn’t take itself that seriously. The only way it takes itself seriously is portraying these characters in an honest way." Kinnaman said "I really think we did that, and I’m proud of my  work and everyone else’s work in that film, too. So, on a film like this, that has those kinds of  ambitions; it becomes even more important what the fans think. We made this film for the fans.".

Even though he still used the 'we made it for the fans' thing, Kinnaman went a more logical route with the following. 

"I can’t remember ever seeing a bigger disparity between reviewers' and fans' response to a film," he continued. "It really was night and day. We’ve  just been  showered with love and appreciation for this, so it’s been pretty phenomenal. Sure, the film is  not perfect. But the kind of vitriol that it got? [Laughs.] It sure as hell didn’t  deserve that. I  think it actually might’ve been good for the film. Now people don’t have too-  high expectations  for it. It reset that a little bit, and people went into the theaters and just  got entertained by  what they saw. So I was really happy with how that whole thing turned  out.".

Out of all the reactions from the cast to the reviews, Kinnaman's has to be the most logical, well-thought and fair out of all of them. While audiences did enjoy the film, critics did not. But does that mean you shouldn't check it out? Of course not. What did you think of Kinnaman's comments? Did you enjoy Suicide Squad? Share your thoughts below.

Suicide Squad is currently in cinemas.
Figuring they're all expendable, a U.S. intelligence officer decides to assemble a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission. Now armed with government weapons, Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and other despicable inmates must learn to work together. Dubbed Task Force X, the criminals unite to battle a mysterious and powerful entity, while the diabolical Joker (Jared Leto) launches an evil agenda of his own.
