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

To prepare for his role as the Joker, Jared Leto watched hours of real crime footage on YouTube until he couldn't watch anymore. His reasoning was to understand how calm and deliberate a criminal can be and apply that to the character. See more »

Goofs

Rick Flag is ludicrously young for his rank. Maybe in 10-15 years he'd realistically expect to make Colonel. See more »

Deceptive Film with a Lame Story
9 October 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

After the death of Superman, the leader of a secret agency Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) convinces the government to recruit super-villains imprisoned in Belle Eve to protect the world. She summons the hit-man Deadshot (Will Smith); The Joker's girlfriend and former psychiatrist Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie); the pyrokinetic Diablo (Jay Hernandez); the bank thief Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney); the mutant Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje); the criminal Slipknot (Adam Beach); and the witch Enchantress that possessed the former archaeologist June Moone (Cara Delevingne) to form The Task Force X. Waller also assigns the command of the team to Colonel Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), who is in love with June. To convince the group to obey orders, a nano bomb is implanted in the neck of each member. When Enchantress releases her powerful brother and they besiege Midway City turning the residents into an army of monsters and building a powerful weapon. Meanwhile The Joker (Jared Leto) is plotting a plan to rescue his beloved Harley Quinn.

"Suicide Squad" is a deceptive film with a lame story and terrible director that waste a magnificent cast. Margot Robbie steals the show and Jared Leto makes a creepy The Joker, but it is not enough to save this film. Waller killing her own team is not dark, but awful. The CGI is poor and the best is the music score with classic rock. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Esquadrão Suicida" ("Suicide Squad")
