James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad has taken the world by storm. But there are many more similar films if you are still not done with them.
Kick-Ass revel in weird violence
Kick-Ass is not your usual superhero movie. It’s overkill but still way more realistic than what the MCU and DCEU give us. If we had to sum up Kick-Ass in one word, we would call it ‘weird’. The weird humor of the Suicide Squad has nothing to do with the eccentric violence that Kic-Ass is.
The Expendables 2 is a brilliantly brash and over-the-top movie
The Expendables franchise brings together all the action heroes you’ve seen in literally any Hollywood popcorn movie. And then they all got together to shoot guns and cannons and rockets, do some action sequences that get past us and look good doing it. Oh and the slogans !! So many slogans !!!!
Starship Troopers is space satire at its finest
Many did not understand the film when it was released. But Paul Verhoeven’s film is indeed one of the greatest space satire films ever made. Johnny Rico’s Murderous Madness looks so realistic, and the parody was so subtle, we all forgot the real purpose of the movie.
Deadpool 2 Makes R-Rated Action Better Than Any Other Movie
Deadpool 2 might not be the best superhero movie ever made. but it’s definitely a lot more fun. There’s an odd onscreen chemistry between Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool and Josh Brolin’s Cable that kept us on the edges of our seats. It’s outrageously funny and no one can deny it.
The Magnificent Seven Teamed Up Before It Was Cool
In the 1960s, making a film by bringing together stars from across the action genre industry was an unknown concept. Then came the Magnificent Seven. Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, and many other legendary action stars of the era joined forces to defeat a common enemy.
Super is James Gunn’s first superhero experience
Rainn Wilson of The Office fame plays the lead role. He has no credible power but does everything he can to keep people safe. The film has surreal humor and is a must see for any James Gunn fan.
Mysterious Men are more hilarious than the Suicide Squad could ever be
They are the least equipped superhero team that has ever graced the big screens. But they are eager to prove themselves and are ready to stoop to any level of embarrassment to do so.
Rogue One is a Suicide Squad story with a Space Opera premise
The film ends with everyone dying. That alone makes him worthy of the “suicide” squad. Rogue One has been called the greatest New Age Star Wars movie ever to be made. We would be lying if we said we didn’t agree.
Fury Is Tanks, Labor, Terror and Tact
David Ayer’s Fury is all about fighting evil at all costs. And the heroes would use any strategy imaginable, even something as dishonorable as playing dead, to defeat the enemy. With a stellar star cast and even better production value, Fury is a great WWII action movie that turns out well on the Suicide Squad theme.
The assault on compound 13 is as good as it gets
John Carpenter’s 1976 classic, a masterpiece of suspense, action, thrill and adrenaline. It is inspired by John Wayne’s Rio Bravo.
