10 Hollywood Movies Similar To The Suicide Squad That’re Just As Fun (Or Even More)

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad has taken the world by storm. But there are way more similar movies if you are still not over it.

Kick-Ass Revels In Oddball Violence

Kick-Ass is not your regular superhero movie. It is over the top but still way more realistic than what the MCU and the DCEU gives us. If we had to sum up Kick-Ass in one word, we would term it ‘weird’. The Suicide Squad’s weird humor has nothing on the oddball violence that is Kic-Ass.

The Expendables 2 Is A Brilliantly Brash & Over The Top Movie

Expendables 2

The Expendables franchise brings in every action hero you have seen in literally any Hollywood popcorn flick. And then they all band together to fire guns, cannons, and rockets, do action sequences that go way over our heads and look good doing it. Oh and catchphrases!! So many catchphrases!!!!

Starship Troopers Is Space Satire At Its Finest

Starship Troopers

Many failed to understand the movie back when it was released. But Paul Verhoeven’s movie is indeed one of the greatest space satire movies ever made. Johnny Rico’s bug killing spree look so realistic and the parody was so subtle that we all forgot the actual purpose of the movie.

Deadpool 2 Does R-Rated Action Better Than Any Other Movie

Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2 may not be the best superhero movie ever made. but it sure is a lot more entertaining. There is a weird on screen chemistry between Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool and Josh Brolin’s Cable that kept us on the edges of our seats. It is outrageously funny and nobody can deny that.

The Magnificent Seven Did Team-Ups Before It Was Cool

The Magnificent Seven

back in the Sixties, making a movie by bringing in stars from all across the action genre industry was unheard of as a concept. Then came the Magnificent Seven. Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, and many more legendary action stars of the time joined forces to defeat a common foe.

Super Is James Gunn’s First Superhero Experiment

Super

Rainn Wilson of The Office fame stars as the lead. He lacks any credible powers but does whatever he can to keep the people safe. The movie has some surreal humor and is a must watch for all James Gunn’s fans.

Mystery Men Are More Hilarious Than The Suicide Squad Could Ever be

Mystery Men

They are the most ill-equipped superhero team that ever graced the big screens. But they are eager to prove themselves and are ready to stoop to any level of embarrassment to do it.

Rogue One Is A Suicide Squad Story With A Space Opera Premise

Rogue One

The movie ends with everyone dying. That alone makes it ‘Suicide’ Squad worthy. Rogue One has been called the greatest new age Star Wars movie ever made. We would be lying if we said we didn’t agree.

Fury Is Tanks, Toil, Terror & Tact

David Ayer’s Fury is all about fighting against evil at all odds. And the heroes would use any strategy imaginable, even something as dishonorable as playing dead, to take down the enemy. With a stellar star cast and an even better production value, Fury is a really good WW2 action flick that rides well on the suicide Squad theme.

Assault On Precinct 13 Is As Good As It Gets

Assault On Precinct 13

John Carpenter‘s 1976 classic a masterpiece of suspense, action, thrill, and adrenaline. It is inspired from John Wayne’s Rio Bravo.
