The movie starts with Amanda Waller recruiting Savant to join Task Force X. He joins the force and they were flown to the island nation of Corto Maltese to reclaim the country's freedom. Their main task is to destroy Jotunheim, a Nazi-era laboratory that holds a secretive experiment known as 'Project Starfish'.

Upon landed on the island, the team was ambushed by the island's regime, as it seems that Blackguard has sold the team out and informed the military force about the team coming. Every member of the team died, except for Harley who is captured.

There were actually two Task Force Xs. While the other team was being ambushed, the team led by Bloodsport managed to enter the country undetected. The team finds Colonel Rick Flag alive and captured by rebel soldiers led by Sol Soria. 

To enter Jotunheim, the team captured The Thinker, a metahuman scientist in charge of Project Starfish. 

Meanwhile, Harley who is captured, being proposed to by the President of the country. She enjoyed her time being wined and dined by the President, until she finally realised and followed her instinct to kill him - too many red flags she said. She was again captured and tortured by the new president. Harley managed to escape from her cell and join the team, who was actually on their way to rescue her. 

The team enters Jotunheim, puts a whole lot of explosives inside the facility while Colonel Flag and Ratcatcher 2 enter the underground laboratory with The Thinker. There, they meet with Starro the Conqueror, a giant alien starfish that feeds on people's life and grows larger. In that laboratory, the team learns the horrible truth about the origin of Starro the Conqueror.

Starro escapes the laboratory and kills anyone that stands in its way, and grows bigger by each human that its little spawns attached to. 

Aside from fighting the giant starfish, the team also has to fight against their own team member, who was tasked to 'clear all loose ends' ie killing all the members once the task is done. 

Can the force kill the alien while handling the trust issue among their members?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.8/ 5.0 I gotta admit that this one is much better than the first Suicide Squad, so I would say that the reboot is successful.

A whole lot of metahumans are introduced in the movie and served their purposes, albeit for small screen time. 

An adult, action packed and comedic movie. You may watch it with your kids, but be mindful ya. 

Cast: 4.9/ 5.0 Everyone delivers beautifully.

Will I watch it again: Yes, I would!
