Netflix UK Top 10 today: 2. Suicide Squad

What’s the synopsis? “A secret government official releases the world’s worst super villains from prison to have them stop an impending apocalypse in exchange for freedom.”

Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie star in this 2016 blockbuster.

What are the critics saying? Rotten Tomatoes didn’t exactly give the film a glowing review.

“Suicide Squad boasts a talented cast and a little more humor than previous DCEU efforts, but they aren’t enough to save the disappointing end result from a muddled plot, thinly written characters and choppy directing,” was the general consensus!

3. Love is Blind: After the Altar

What’s the synopsis? “Nick and Vanessa Lachey host this social experiment where single men and women look for love and get engaged, all before meeting in person.

“Now, after two years, the Pod Squad gets ready to reunite, sharing personal updates — and dissecting shocking drama — along the way.”

What are the critics saying? It’s fair to say they’re divided.

One commented: “Netflix’s new three-part follow-up asks viewers to spend a lot of time catching up with people we weren’t all that invested in to start with.”

But another said: “As silly and contrived as Love Is Blind: After The Altar is, it’s still a good way to catch up with the cast, even if the fights that they’re inevitably going to have are pure reality cheese.”

4. Sex/Life

What’s the synopsis? “A woman’s daring sexual past collides with her married-with-kids present when the bad-boy ex she can’t stop fantasising about crashes back into her life.”

What are the critics saying about Sex/Life? According to the general consensus on Rotten Tomatoes: “Suffocating its more provocative ideas with steamy interludes and melodramatic writing, this erotic drama is too obsessed with sex to ever fully come to life.”

There’s also a lot of talk about leading man Adam Demos and if his penis in that shower scene is real!
