Will Smith (Deadshot) told Reuters: "People had expectations that may have been different, but I'm excited for the fans to get to vote".

And Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag) told Digital Spy: "Of course you want critical acclaim...but what matters is what the fans think.

"We're really proud of this film, we loved making it. Everybody on the film has become really close friends and this is like a work of love and I hope the fans like it."

But unlike their co-stars, Jay Hernandez (El Diablo) and Cara Delevingne (The Enchantress) didn't hold back.

Also talking to Digital Spy, Hernandez said he was "bothered" by the harsh reviews the film had been getting.

"I think it sucks...Obviously, we worked hard and tried to give the fans what they wanted," he said.

While Cara Delevingne flat out told Reuters "the critics have been absolutely horrific".

"They're really, really horrible...You know, I just don't think they like superhero movies."

Negative reviews for the film have been pouring it at such a rate that fans of the film launched a petition to close down review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes in an attempt to prevent people from seeing them.

The film is now open in New Zealand cinemas.
