WARNING! Review will contain some spoilers, but only on PAGE 2! If you wish to go spoiler free click to PAGE 3! Also there’s gonna be a lot of criticism towards Suicide Squad (2016), so if you actually liked that movie (for some insane reason) then this probably isn’t the review for you. Just saying.
Criminally insane Harley Quinn (Robbie), cold blooded gadget savvy mercenary Robert DuBois (Elba) aka Bloodsport, and jingoistic killer Christopher Smith (Cena) aka Peacemaker, and a collection of nutty cons at Belle Reve prison join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X, under the ever watchful eye of Amanda “The Wall” Waller (Davis), as they are dropped off at the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.
They tasked with destroying Jötunheim, a Nazi-era laboratory that holds a secretive experiment known as Project Starfish, which is under the supervision of metahuman scientist Dr. Gaius Grieves (Capaldi) aka The Thinker.
Now we get into spoilers on PAGE 2! Once again, if you wish to avoid major spoilers, click PAGE 3! I feel like I have given ample warnings now.
