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

Jared Leto revealed in an interview that among the infamous gifts he sent his co-stars were more appropriate items, too. "I did give some really nice, Sweet gifts as well," Leto said while promoting the film in New York city, "I gave cupcakes". But then he added with a devilish grin", "I don't think they should have eaten the cupcakes", he quipped, "I also wrote everyone a poem as well", Leto said adding, "It helped me think about who they were and kind of created this illusion of a relationship and make the circumstances a little more realistic". Leto then teased, "The funny thing about the gifts is no one has actually talked about the craziest stuff, I didn't get thank you notes for some of the gifts" Leto boasted, "I'm not going to say who or what or what specific gift was thanked, but there were a lot", "Joker likes to share his toys."

An overly hyped film and a very unfortunate disappointment
13 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Suicide Squad was a disappointment to me. May be I got hooked on the hype or was expecting too much from WB. This movie had a great concept that we saw on the small screen, both TV series and animated. For some reason, those formats did it better than this theatrical release.

This movie suffered from all fronts, poor writing which is the number one problem for me. The story was just all over the place with such in coherency, it's visible at every point. Not enough time was spent in developing these characters for their introduction to the big stage. Poor dialogue was another major problem which is just so stupid at some points.

But Suicide Squad still could have been saved with the main plot and a great villain. Sadly that too was a major problem. The main plot didn't make sense because the movie itself went in so many directions that none of it could have come together and gel.The villain was a total failure. Nothing about this person was intriguing and just falls so flat. Story and main purpose was so awful for a big summer blockbuster.

This movie probably only had about two things going for it. Majority of the casting was great including Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jared Leto, and Jai Courtney. Yes Jai Courtney, I'm shocked too. I really think his role should have been expanded. Notable miscast would be Joel Kinnaman and Cara Delevingne. Joel Kinnaman portrayal of Rick Flag was out of touch of what that character should be and for Enchantress, someone, more older with more acting depth should have been chosen over Cara Delevingne.

The other thing would be, through and through it's a much better movie than Batman V Superman. I know that's not really helping but still. A weak six stars and a onetime watch.
