The third featured in the DC Extended Universe film franchise, Suicide Squad, is written and directed by David Ayer and stars an ensemble cast: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood Cara Delevingne, and others.
Amanda Waller wants to create Task Force X, a group of supervillains that the US government would use a Black-Ops group. However, one of their members, Enchantress, whose heart is captured by Waller, awakens her brother. He unleashed a magical force in Midway City.
Amanda Waller gets the green light for Task Force X and uses the criminals Deadshot, Harley Quinn, El Diablo, Killer Croc, Slipknot, Captain Boomerang, and led by Colonel Flagg and Katana. They go into Midway City and prepare for the fight of their lives.
Meanwhile, Harley Quinn’s lover and partner in crime Joker is trying to find. He is killing, blackmailing, and maiming his way to finding her.
This movie is not award worthy by a long shot, but it is a fun thrill ride all the way through. The trailers were a little deceptive, making it appear the Joker was the main villain, but he is a side character. Jared Leto’s portrayal was a combination of Nicholson’s and Ledger’s making him a psychotic gangster.
