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

In a joke segment called "First Drafts" on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (2015), one of the taglines for Independence Day: Resurgence (2016), "We had twenty years to prepare. So did they", was spoofed, saying its first draft really was: "For twenty years, Will Smith said 'NO.' So we just made it without him." Moreover, and similarly, for Smith's Suicide Squad, released in the same year, which has one tagline that states, "Worst. Heroes. Ever.", the first draft was: "The movie Will Smith did instead of Independence Day 2". See more »

Goofs

When a car arrives at a building, Waller's bodyguards are egregiously deficient. As she exits her vehicle a guard armed with an automatic rifle allows her to cross in front of him, blocking his view and putting his primary in a potential crossfire. Moments later she approaches a door flanked by two similarly armed guards, both of whom turn their back on the threat zone to open the door for Waller--who is perfectly capable of opening a door for herself. These are both major breaches of bodyguard protocol. See more »

actually OK with lots of annoying little problems
26 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) recruits various criminals from a black site in Louisiana to battle the new unprecedented dangers. June Moone (Cara Delevingne) is an archaeologist who got possessed by a witch named Enchantress. Special forces Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) fell in love with her and leads the group. Floyd Lawton (Will Smith) is assassin Deadshot who can't miss. The most important thing in his life is his daughter. George Harkness (Jai Courtney) is Captain Boomerang. Chato Santana is El Diablo but he has turned pacifist. Waylon Jones is Killer Croc. Tatsu Yamashiro is Katana with a soul stealing sword. There is Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), the psycho love of The Joker (Jared Leto). A powerful danger is unleashed in Midway City and the group is called.

This was critically panned by the majority. I expected more of a mess. The story is simple and easy to follow. No doubt, there are some jarring edits with some disjointed flow. It's a little bothersome but it doesn't make it incomprehensible. The movie just keeps hitting speed bumps with annoying little problems. What's with Enchantress' movements? Her whole character is problematic. Why would Harley Quinn go back? Why would Waller kill everyone? There are varying problems in the writing. On the positive side, these are interesting characters well played by skilled actors. Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto are standouts. Joker and Harley Quinn have a great story together. If anything, this shows potential for these characters into the future.
