The Suicide Squad 2 is currently the highest-rated DC film on Rotten Tomatoes with a 98% score from 55 reviews.” directed by James Gunn” appear on screen for the first time in The Suicide Squad, they’re accompanied by a strange image: a small, daffodil-colored bird carefully nibbling at a human brain stem. Consider it a declaration of the artist’s intention. Gunn’s film is as delicious as it is gory, like an ice cream sundae with organs sprinkled on top. It’s a big cry from 2016’s Suicide Squad, and an incredible leap forward. Aside from the lack of any human feeling, the preceding installment had all the sharpness of one of those bile-green Sourz Apple shots.

In reality, Gunn’s singular and self-assured vision, which he claims was left unspoiled and unaffected by corporate meddling, elevates The Suicide Squad to the ranks of the finest recent comic-book films. His picture, which now has the crucial “The” at the start of its title, serves as both a sequel and a fresh start. Except for a few favorite characters — Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, of course, one of DC’s crown jewels, along with Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang and Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag – almost everything from the last installment has been cut.

It does, however, benefit from audiences’ familiarity with the Suicide Squad, also known as Task Force X – a ragtag group of villains and ne’er-do-wells assembled by the government and dispatched to complete the most difficult and impossible tasks, all with bombs strapped to their necks in case they try to play hooky. Amanda Waller, played by Viola Davis, is back as the commander of Task Force X, and she’s assembled a new squad for a new mission. This one revolves around a highly classified piece of extraterrestrial technology kept hidden on the (fictitious) South American island of Corto Maltese, which has just fallen under the rule of the anti-American Silvio Luna.

But here, she’s a ruthless and merciless monster with enough depth to be worthy of Davis’s unrivaled abilities. Gunn allows her to jump right into the action, dispatching both known and unexpected individuals to their untimely ends. The filmmaker searched the wildest and strangest parts of comic book history to populate his own beefed-up platoon, adding such characters as Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian) and Weasel (Sean Gunn, brother of James, in a mo-cap suit).

Whereas 2016’s Suicide Squad was all bravado, Gunn’s follow-up delivers the goods without flinching. The death toll is alarmingly high and indiscriminate. There are enough ripped limbs and blown brains to guarantee that no one forgets Gunn’s roots in B-movie style horror, thanks in part to the presence of King Shark (played by Steve Agee but voiced by Sylvester Stallone). There’s an obvious parallel here with the director’s other superhero franchise, the distinctly family-friendly Guardians of the Galaxy, from which he was briefly fired following a right-wing campaign targeting old.

Warner Bros. took advantage of that brief window of opportunity to play some corporate mind tricks, promising Gunn all of the cursing and violence that was still forbidden at Marvel. Despite the extravagance, these films are all based on the same basic strength: a startling and emotional honesty behind it all. The Suicide Squad isn’t about the violence or the outrageousness; it’s about Gunn’s grasp of the outsider figure’s subversive potency.
