From a pure entertainment perspective, "The Suicide Squad" is one of the most entertaining comic book movies in recent years.
Feels more like a two-hour commercial for the entire Warner Brothers catalog and a means of stroking LeBron James' ego.
As generic, made-for-quick-consumption animated productions go, there’s nothing especially bad about "Spirit Untamed." Unfortunately, there’s nothing especially good, either.
The "plot" is just an excuse to present long, lovingly-filmed instances of sadism and torture.

Although one could argue that the movie is loosely about memory and time, that would be ascribing order to a random series of stream-of-consciousness philosophical ramblings.
This movie seeks to expand the mind and touch the heart without much concern about how many toys it will sell or whether there’s sequel potential.
Featuring a forceful central performance by Riz Ahmed, it achieves its life-affirming aim in such a way that it never feels cloying or preachy.
