The film’s official logline reads as follows:
Welcome to Hell – aka Belle Reve, the highest fatality prison in the United States of A. Where the worst super villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out – even join the super secret and super task. Shady Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of drawbacks including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin, and everyone’s favorite psychopath, Harley Quinn. Then heavily arm them and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the squad is on a search and destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave… and the technicians of the Amanda Waller’s government in their ears, tracking their every move. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone makes bets, the smart money is against them – all of them.
