DCU: Batman: Assault on Arkham | Full Movie | Movies Anywhere
Welcome to Gotham City's heart of darkness. Arkham Asylum is a festering depository of the vile, the dangerous and the delirious, with an ever-growing population courtesy of the Dark Knight. But when Batman foils the Riddler's latest caper and a crucial piece of evidence, a thumb drive, ends up hidden in Arkham, potential salvation comes from an unexpected source: a covert government strike team assembled from Gotham City's underworld. The assassin Deadshot leads the team, code-named the Suicide Squad: Harley Quinn, Killer Frost, Captain Boomerang, King Shark, and Black Spider, a roster of rogues who know Arkham Asylum and its residents all too well. Batman is pursuing the thumb drive as well. After defeating a Suicide Squad member, Batman switches costumes with him and covertly infiltrates the Squad.

Cynical and violent superhero tale has some cursing.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Batman: Assault on Arkham is a 2014 animated superhero movie in which Batman's villains, the Suicide Squad, are sent on a mission to infiltrate an insane asylum. It's based on the Batman: Arkham video game franchise. Even for those accustomed to the cynicism and dark humor of these Batman-themed animated features, this comes off as even more cynical and negative. For instance, the Joker, reunited with his former lover Harley Quinn, finds humor in his strongly implied physical abuse of Quinn. Frequent violence includes dead bodies hanging in a motel room, exploding heads, and gun battles. There's also regular use of profanity (s--t," "a--hole," "bitch," etc.), the middle-finger gesture, and alcohol drinking. Characters are shown on the verge of having sex.
