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?

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Suicide Squad boasts a talented cast and a little more humor than previous DCEU efforts, but they aren't enough to save the disappointing end result from a muddled plot, thinly written characters, and choppy directing.

DC's antiheroes disappoint in muddled, violent mess.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Suicide Squad is a super(anti)hero adventure based on characters who tie in to the DC movie-verse, like Batman v. Superman, Wonder Woman, and Justice League. This particular story follows a group of shady meta-humans and anti-heroes -- including Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn -- who are forced to team up for the greater good. Expect lots of action violence, from close-up execution-style murders to large-scale battles and widespread destruction that leads to the deaths of innocent bystanders. Characters die or are presumed killed. Language includes swearing ("s--t," "p---y," "ass," "bitch") and sexist jokes/insults about men needing to control their women (i.e. "what they say" about "crazy" women). There's also a man who hits a woman because she "had a mouth on her." There's some sex and romance here, too, with several passionate kisses, mentions of characters sleeping together, and shots of Harley dancing in a sultry way and dressed in very small, tight, revealing outfits. While there's plenty of iffy stuff, ultimately the group dynamic does hinge on teamwork, collaboration, and trying to do the right thing.
