The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by David Ayer. Star­ring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Mar­got Rob­bie, Joel Kin­na­man, Vi­ola Davis, Jai Court­ney, Cara Delev­ingne, Jay Her­nan­dez The lat­est film in the DC Ex­panded Uni­verse brings a Dirty Dozen ap­proach to its frayed story. The world’s worst su­per-vil­lains are brought to­gether and, in ex­change for clemency, in­vited to fight for the good guys. The ac­tors all try their best, but the film is overly busy, overly murky and overly vul­gar. Leto’s much-dis­cussed turn as the Joker flits by in an in­con­se­quen­tial mo­ment. Rob­bie is mis­used; Davis is wasted. Some­thing is rot­ten in this uni­verse. 15A cert, gen re­lease, 123 min DC
