Watch Suicide Squad
Task Force X is a top-secret government agency with a controversial strategy: It recruits the nation's most ruthless super-villains, from cold-blooded killers to crafty con-men, and deploys them on covert, black-ops missions. In return for their service, the criminals are offered clemency upon completion of their mission. The prisoners are monitored- if they try to escape or betray the cause, they're terminated- but their extreme natures and unpredictable temperaments shine through nonetheless. As individuals, these criminal recruits are brash, unruly, and out-of-line, but as a unit, they're the Suicide Squad, and they're armed to the teeth and here to save the world.

Suicide Squad News
Bad reviews haven't kept Suicide Squad from dominating the box office for three weekends in a row. This week, the comic-book movie tries for a fourth.
This week, Suicide Squad goes for a third consecutive week at the top of the box-office chart, an accomplishment that has eluded even the biggest, most financially successful comic book movies of the year.
The top movie for the weekend was the same movie that's been on top for the previous two weeks, but the bigger story for the weekend was the catastrophic failure of the week's most expensive new movie.
Critics hate it, but audiences don't care. The year's second big DC Comics movie is performing almost as well as the first, and its opening weekend is one of the top five biggest of the year.
Could this be the DC Comics blockbuster that fans have been waiting for? Suicide Squad jumped out of the gate quickly on Thursday with some impressive ticket sales.
Monday's New York debut of the upcoming Suicide Squad film was just about as crazy as you'd expect the event to be. It was so out of hand, in fact, that the film's director had to apologize afterward.
The critics are saying that Suicide Squad is not worth watching, but industry observers expect the new DC Comics movie to open big anyway. The question is, will it be bigger than Deadpool and Dory?
The synergy between DC Comics TV series and movies could be handled much better, according to one of the stars of the CW's hit superhero series.
