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

The song at the beginning of the movie was 'You Don't Own Me' sung by the late Lesley Gore. It was one of her biggest hit from 1968. See more »

Goofs

In Harley Quinn's file (her introduction sequence), her date of birth is listed as July 20, 1990. This would put her around 26 in 2016. The following scene has her arrest date as 10/13/14, putting her around 24. It is mentioned she is a psychiatrist prior to meeting the Joker. It takes approximately 8 years of medical study in the United States to become a psychiatrist. Unless she has an extremely high intelligence and started medical studies at only 16, this is an unrealistic time line. See more »

I wish I could say otherwise but I can't lie like that.
22 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

A film that utterly lacked any substance. There was promise at the beginning with a great opening introducing us to the anti-heroes which was awesome. And then.... Nothing? Stranded such a talented cast fighting comical looking goons and an anti-climax of a villian. The two stars are for Viola Davis and Margot Robbie who give their roles everything. Every other character is disposable and forgettable. And Jared Leto as the Joker? Lets say no more.
