“Suicide Squad” is based around six villains who are hired by a secret government agency to complete a dangerous black operation mission in exchange for 10 years off their prison sentence. Everything that could go wrong, goes wrong. Why? Because they’re bad guys trying to be good.
Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) is the psychiatrist who went insane because of the Joker (Jared Leto). Deadshot (Will Smith) surprisingly will make you cry because of his heartbreaking background, and the Joker, who will always be evil no matter what, are some of the bigger bad guys. The Joker’s main goal is to save Harley Quinn, his love interest, from ever going back to Bella Reve Penitentiary. Deadshot takes the deal with Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), head of the government agency, because he wants to see his daughter again. Katana (Karen Fukuhara), a good girl that you need to keep an eye on, was hired to keep the bad guys under control during the mission. She’s a Japanese warrior who carries the sword that her husband was murdered with to seek revenge and joins the group under Colonel Rick Flag, the lead commander of the operation and supervisor. The other members of the “Suicide Squad” include Killer Croc, El Diablo, Captain Boomerang and Slipknot.
   Harley Quinn will make you laugh and cry. She was judged by her looks, pretty and blond, but was incredibly smart and talented as a psychiatrist. She meets the Joker and feels in love and her world falls apart. You will slowly see why people love her.
The soundtrack tied together the movie. Opening with “House of The Rising Sun” by the Animals and ending with Twenty One Pilots’ “Heathens,” the soundtrack was full of new and classic rock. The combination of rock eras gives a unique feel to the movie.
“Suicide Squad” will prove that even the “bad” guys have some good in them.
