Chris Pratt Describes the Flaws of 'Suicide Squad'

Chris Pratt stars in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and weighed in on one of the DC Entertainment movies, Suicide Squad.

“I really like all the Warner Bros. movies,” the 37-year-old actor told io9. “I think they’re really cool and I’m not a real tough critic on those movies. But one of the flaws might have been they were introducing too many characters in Suicide Squad. They spent 10 minutes telling us why should we care about these characters, rather than creating trilogies for each character and convincing us to care about the characters.”

Guardians of the Galaxy is set to debut on May 5. Suicide Squad starred Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Will Smith, and more.
