“The Suicide Squad,” “Black Widow,” “Summer of Soul” and “Jungle Cruise” were films that created noise in a summer movie season with many releases.
“I, Tonya” skates by on its performances and vitality, but is held back by poorly implemented musical moments and questionable character diversions.
The real crime of “Goodbye Christopher Robin” is that, despite the resonance of Christopher’s plight, the story is poorly told and poorly presented.
The concept of the Suicide Squad — a group of supervillains who are signed up to do the government’s dirty work — is strong. But when a director subtracts the action, emotion and comedic relief, and replaces it with backstories and unaddressed abusive relationships, it fails.
