Regent Theater this week: Suicide Squad

first_imgThis week at the Regent Theater: Suicide Squad (see trailer below).Schedule: Friday 7 and 9:45 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, 2 and 7 p.m.This Friday’s feature film: PG-13 (for sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, suggestive content and language). Time: 2 hours 3 minutes.Movie Synopsis: From director David Ayer (“Fury,” “End of Watch”) comes “Suicide Squad,” starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (“Ali,” “The Pursuit of Happyness”), Oscar winner Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Focus”), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix’s “House of Cards”) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”). It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?Rotten Tomatoes rating (movie critics collective approval ratings): 26%. Audience review: 68% liked it. Critic’s consensus: Suicide Squad boasts a talented cast and a little more humor than previous DCEU efforts, but they aren’t enough to save the disappointing end result from a muddled plot, thinly written characters, and choppy directing.For more information on great movies being played visit the Wellington Regent website at https://www.facebook.com/wellington.regent?fref=tsFollow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.
