Enjoyed the Movie "Suicide Squad"- based on a DC Comic

DC Comics put out another great film this year, and this is a follow up to Batman Vs. Superman. This one, though, is about villains who fight for the greater good - because they have to!
   Thanks to a government agent named Amanda Waller, she recruits the most vicious criminals to band together to fight immense evils.
   Based on the comic book series, this sticks pretty closely to the comic and both of us really enjoyed it!  
   The telling of the origins of each character was extremely well-done and short. The character's personalities shine through. The Harley Quinn character (who is in love with Batman's Joker) is as crazy as a loon, and a very likeable character.
  The actress playing Amanda Waller nailed the character, as did all of the villains. I thought the Rick Flag (commander of the team) was a great character, too and I don't remember him from the original series. 
 GO SEE IT!  - There's even a brief appearance from Batman (Ben Affleck) and there will be a 2nd Suicide Squad movie. 

Here's the summary: Figuring they're all expendable, a U.S. intelligence officer decides to assemble a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission. Now armed with government weapons, Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) [The Joker's Girlfriend], Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and other despicable inmates must learn to work together. Dubbed Task Force X, the criminals unite to battle a mysterious and powerful entity, while the diabolical Joker (Jared Leto) launches an evil agenda of his own.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
