Suicide Squad – The Electric Shadows Podcast

Suicide-Squad---Margot-Robbie,-mallet

Episode 11 of The Electric Shadows Podcast, in which Rob Daniel & Rob Wallis tackle Suicide Squad, ponder the future of DC movies, realise they have spent around 15 hours this year watching and talking about DC movies, and Rob Daniel wonders why films now can’t be more like Crocodile Dundee II. Rob Wallis also gets warm and fuzzy with Finding Dory and Rob Daniel is mightily impressed with chilled out entertainer David Brent in Life on the Road.

More of Rob Wallis’ musing on movies can be found at his site Of All The Film Sites. Check it out (after listening to the podcast)…

The lowdown: The Godfather Pt II of heroic bloodshed movies and surpassing the ballistic brilliance of the first instalment, The Raid 2: Berandal is a five star encore. Iko Uwais returns as beleaguered cop Rama, sent undercover to bust the criminal empire and corrupt police force hinted at in the final moments of the first movie. Yakuza crime movie cool slams headlong into Jacobean revenge tragedy, punctuated by some of the most exhilarating, red raw action ever slammed onto the silver screen. Watch it. Don’t make us tell you twice.
