Elon Musk's (Very Brief) 'Suicide Squad' Review: "Needed More Joker"

Seems like everyone is weighing in on the new DC comic book adaption, Suicide Squad — even Elon Musk.

The billionaire inventor on Tuesday shared — in 140 characters — his thoughts on the anti-hero Warner Bros. flick and his criticism was pretty much the same as that of most fans: It needed more Joker. 

In response to a piece on the strengths and weaknesses of the picture (which was panned by critics but still had a fantastic opening weekend), Musk tweeted, "Movie still enjoyable due to some great characters, but plot & editing could've been better. Really needed more Joker+Harley." 

John Ostrander, who revamped the Squad in the late '80s, said this week he enjoyed the film.

"I really liked the film. Not perfect by a long shot, but a really good time in the movie theater," Ostrander said in a piece published for Comicmix. "And for me a lot of it was just amazing," he wrote. "The look, the detail, the feel of the film is not something I’ve seen in superhero movies before.”

Still, even with a large opening weekend, the film did notably drop off quite a bit Saturday (41 percent day-over-day), which has been attributed to poor word of mouth.
