In a world without Superman (see Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice for that), gouvernment tough cookie Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) convinces everybody that it's a darn good idea to collect all the baddest of the bad guys currently in custody to form a special task force and place explosives in their neck to force them to do good deeds in order not to be blown up. The baddies in question are master hitman with a heart of gold Deadshot (Will Smith), batshit crazy Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), also known as the Joker's (Jared Leto) moll, Australian loudmouth Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje), who's half human half crocodile, El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), who can telepathically set fire to whatever he focuses on, and the Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), who is actually scientist June Moone possessed by a witch.

Problems are of course manyfold right from the start, as the Joker makes attempt after attempt to free Harley, the ragtag gang of baddies does not see eye to eye with their special forces leader Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), and the Enchantress, not really bothered by the explosive implant, soon defects from the group to resurrect her brother and with him (and an army of monsters) lay waste to the city - and suddenly our anti-heroes known as Task Force X aka Suicide Squad has their first assignment, to save Amanda Waller from her headquarters and kill as many monsters as possible in the process. But of course, things to massively wrong on all fronts, and amidst helicopter crashes, explosions, shoot-outs and fistfights it's soon hard to figure what's going on ...

 

Back when it came out, the antihero saga Suicide Squad was expected to be the final spark to kick the DC Cinematic Universe into high gear - and was instantly dropped by fans for not delivering on expectations ... which is a bit unfair as the film, while certainly not living up to expectations, is not as bad as it was made out to be: Sure it's little more than spectacle cinema with a paperthin plot, too drawn out expositions, and characters that are little more than caricatures going through a series of oneliners. But on the other hand, the film looks slick, features a killer soundtrack, and the action, while often nonsensical, never fails to entertain. Sure, it's pure popcorn cinema that you'll have half forgotten on your way out - but it's fun while watching.
