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?

Goofs

Harley is a psychiatrist, which means she completed both medical school (8 years of undergraduate and medical studies) and a residency in psychiatry (another 4 years). Not only that, she was competent and experienced enough to be allowed to treat high-risk criminals like the Joker, hinting at a reputation that she must have worked to build for some time. Plus she's been a part of the Joker's gang for at least ten years, since she was mentioned as an accomplice in Robin's death, which took place that long ago - and yet she's twenty-six. This is possibly justified. Joker doesn't appear to have aged much either since they met, and Harley regularly displays abilities that few normal humans, let alone ones with no training, which may imply that the acid they fell into changed their physiology. Similarly, Enchantress' human host has a Ph D (given she's referred to as Dr. June Moone), another process that takes several years to achieve, and only after completing at least one postgraduate degree. It is fairly possible to have achieved a doctorate by your late twenties, depending on your field, but an archaeology Ph D in the United States typically takes about a decade to complete. And June's played by Cara Delevingne, who in real life was twenty-three at the time of filming and only a year or two older than most new college graduates (depending on how long an undergraduate degree takes to complete).

problems, but overall enjoyed it
8 August 2016 | by doggonegood44See all my reviews

Y'know I didn't hate this like everyone in the world seems to. The characters were colorful, big. I guess it's a tough task to get them all equal screen time. My suggestion would have been to cut back on the members. Problem solved.

It doesn't quite have the fun of the trailer, which can happen when someone not involved with film cuts something that may not represent the film.

Harley Quinn obviously a stand out, but the BIG ONE for me, was seeing Batman, albeit briefly. Just enough to tantalize. Wetted my appetite for his solo film which can't come soon enough.
