The Suicide Squad is much better than Suicide Squad, a fact that the director of the latter, David Ayer, might even agree with, if his recent tweets about the theatrical cut of his movie are any indication. There are a lot of differences between the two moviies, both in front of and behind the cameras, but if you boil it all down, you can reall find the difference between the movies in a single scene involving one of the characters they both share: Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.

In our latest The Suicide Squad video, we compare both movie versions of the DC Comics franchise, to figure out where one went right and one went wrong. In particular there are similar scenes in each movie that say a lot about why James Gunn found a lot more creative success and why David Ayer (or whoever ultimately signed off on the version that came out in theaters) struggled to make it all work. Watch the video below:
