The Nerd Room Episode #34: Suicide Squad Review

August 11th, 2016

Hosts Sunjay, Troy and Tim are back to review DC's third entry into their now rapidly growing Cinematic Universe, Suicide Squad. Possibly one of the most talked about and anticipated CBM of 2016, and for some, a film that represents an opportunity for DC to demonstrate they can deviate from their current course and make a CBM that doesn't rely on leading heroes Batman and Superman.

In this spoiler filled episode the guys breakdown the films characters, plot, action sequences, music and much more!

Tune in to hear if The Nerd Room recommends Suicide Squad.
