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.
