Posturing. Unintelligible. Jumbled.
Intent on being a world-conquering puppet master, Amada Waller (Davis, much too good for this) sets about putting together a team of DC’s least popular villains; the idea being that if they fail, the government can just throw the rogues under the bus, and so Deadshot (Smith), Killer Croc (Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Harley Quinn (Robbie), Captain Boomerang (Courtney), and El Diablo (Hernandez) are coerced into taking on an ancient power known as The Enchantress (Delavigne). The film is a mess; structure, character development, plot. All exposition, no flow. The villain is lame. The Joker, as played by Oscar winner Jared Leto, is pointless and unwatchable. The filmmakers clearly focused on the poster more than the script. Worse than Fantastic Four (2015). Worse than Batman and Robin (1998).
