Storyline

In Gotham City, the Riddler has secret information on the top secret Task Force X that he threatens to make public, but before Amanda Waller can have him killed, he is captured by Batman. Now with Riddler imprisoned in Arkham Asylum, Amanda Waller reassembles the Suicide Squad of captured supervillains with the mission to infiltrate the forensic mental hospital to retrieve Riddler's information. Led by Deadshot, this black ops team makes their way into the facility, only to face complications from within and without the team with secret agendas and double crosses all around. Meanwhile, Batman has his own concerns with an urgent search for The Joker's deadly bomb that threatens Gotham City. Eventually, all these players converge on Arkham Asylum for a showdown that few are going to escape alive. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Better than the Live-Action Suicide Squad Movie!
28 January 2017 | by xgray-03873See all my reviews

It's really not that big of a surprise to find out that "Batman: Assault on Arkham" is a much better Suicide Squad movie than the one with Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Jerod Leto ("The Joker), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and Will Smith. I mean, duh?! We should've seen this coming, but I guess not.

But yeah, everything that was literally wrong with the live-action "Suicide Squad" movie, this movie actually made up for as DC and Warner Bros.' way of saying, "We're sorry" to the fans.

Bottom-line, if you want to see a really good Suicide Squad movie, don't watch the live-action version. Go watch this movie instead. It deserves a lot more attention.

10 out of 10 stars.
