Storyline

It feels good to be bad...Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?

Trivia

On why the Joker enjoys inflicting pain, Jared Leto stated in an interview, "I think that the Joker is inflicting upon the world the pain that has been inflicted upon him, so in a sense there's some sort of revenge there, but I think it's all a big game, I think that if there's an opportunity to manipulate or intimidate he finds that really exciting."

Goofs

The Browning M2HB .50 caliber machine guns fitted to the HMMWVs seen in the film seem slightly smaller than their real-life counterparts, and appear to be mounted on a mount more fitting for the smaller M60 general-purpose 7.62mm machine gun. See more »

This is a total disgrace to the DC Villains
26 August 2016 | by (Halifax, Canada) – See all my reviews

The whole plot of the movie was a mess. It really confused me what all the characters in the film was fighting for, I mean there was no real goal of the movie for the first 70% of the time. Then they set up the story in a way where the friend turns into the foe, and those friends are now facing this foe as their primary enemy and not the one it was shown at the beginning of the movie. I think the whole script was written by a total non professional guy who needs to again go through the basic levels of a film school. This movie made DC lose its fame towards its fans and I hope they bounce back in their next show. Thank you
