No. Simply just no...
11 November 2016 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Every now and then The Asylum do manage to hit the nail right on the head. Unfortunately, more than often they swing wide and miss even wider. And such was the case with the 2016 mockbuster "Sinister Squad".

I must admit that I entered this movie with little or no expectations at all, especially since it was going to be a rip off of "Suicide Squad" and also because I didn't recognize anyone in the movie. But mostly because this is after all another The Asylum release.

I managed to suffer a full 22 minutes and 12 seconds into the movie before I was ready to claw my eyes out and just simply downright gave up. I threw the towel in the ring and went to watch something else. I usually don't easily give up on a movie, but there was absolutely nothing compelling about "Sinister Squad". Nothing to make me want to sit there and hope for it to get better.

From what I managed to gather from what I saw was that the story was about fairytale and mythical beings being recruited for something. And that was about as much as I comprehended from the movie.

The acting was abysmal, as it usually turns out to be in these types of movies. So don't get your hopes up here, not even the least.

The effects and creature designs were poor, to say the least. If they at least had proper effects and CGI, or even just proper make-up and wardrobes for the acting talents, then perhaps I would have stayed for more than just a little over 22 minutes.

I lost every will to watch more of "Sinister Squad", and I am not even going to bother to return to finish the rest of the movie.

This is not the brightest of moments in the history of The Asylum. Now, mind you they do put out something good and entertaining every now and then, but "Sinister Squad" is a movie to avoid like a bad case of flu.
