The Suicide Squad initiative functions as an unorthodox work release program, which explains why many of the DC Universe’s supervillains remain perpetually on the loose—regardless of how many occasions they are apprehended and incarcerated for their latest crimes, it undertakes high-risk, black-ops missions in exchange for commuted prison sentences.
This story basically starts aftermath of Superman’s death, intelligence operative Amanda Waller urges to assembles a team of dangerous criminals — the deranged Harley Quinn, elite hit man Deadshot, pyrokinetic ex-gangster El Diablo, opportunistic thief Captain Boomerang, monstrous cannibal Killer Croc, and specialized mercenary Slipknot at Belle Reve Penitentiary and places them under command of Colonel Rick Flag.
They are to be used as disposable assets in high-risk missions for the United States government. Each member has a small bomb implanted in their head, which is specially designed to detonate when-ever any member of the rebel goes against the Flag.

The rest of the cast including Joel Kinneman, Scott Eastwood, Jai Courtney, Adam Beach and Viola Davis, all gave their best and there was no negative point in their performance.
If we talk about the conclusion review of the movie then the movie was good but the performances were exceptional. The movie is not about what is going on but what is going on inside the minds of characters. The movie is cool as first but very soon you will realize there is not any villain to go after but some bunch of anti-heroes to rally behind. The movie majorly focused on characters rather than plot and villain.
