The first trailer for this film shown at Comic Con 2015, featured a cover version of The Bee Gees's classic "I Started A Joke". This version was specifically produced for that preview by trailer music company Confidential Music (with vocals by Becky Hanson), and made quite an impact with audiences. A modified version of that arrangement is included on the official soundtrack album (which is remarkable as such cover versions created only for promotional material are normally not released to the public).

The HMMWVs being used by the Military in their unsuccessful attempt to 'contain' Incubus at Midway City all seem to be the early, unarmored M1025/M1026 versions, as distinguished by the distinctive X-patterned door, the absence of a proper gun turret, and the flat 'snout' of the vehicle. By the time of the film's release, these have been relegated mainly to training facilities, Military Police, or rear-echelon units; frontline combat units, even National Guard ones, are currently equipped with the up-armored M1151 Enhanced Armament Carrier version, which looks significantly different from the M1025/M1026s depicted in the film.

An overly hyped film and a very unfortunate disappointment
Suicide Squad was a disappointment to me. May be I got hooked on the hype or was expecting too much from WB. This movie had a great concept that we saw on the small screen, both TV series and animated. For some reason, those formats did it better than this theatrical release.
This movie suffered from all fronts, poor writing which is the number one problem for me. The story was just all over the place with such in coherency, it's visible at every point. Not enough time was spent in developing these characters for their introduction to the big stage. Poor dialogue was another major problem which is just so stupid at some points.
But Suicide Squad still could have been saved with the main plot and a great villain. Sadly that too was a major problem. The main plot didn't make sense because the movie itself went in so many directions that none of it could have come together and gel.The villain was a total failure. Nothing about this person was intriguing and just falls so flat. Story and main purpose was so awful for a big summer blockbuster.
This movie probably only had about two things going for it. Majority of the casting was great including Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jared Leto, and Jai Courtney. Yes Jai Courtney, I'm shocked too. I really think his role should have been expanded. Notable miscast would be Joel Kinnaman and Cara Delevingne. Joel Kinnaman portrayal of Rick Flag was out of touch of what that character should be and for Enchantress, someone, more older with more acting depth should have been chosen over Cara Delevingne.
The other thing would be, through and through it's a much better movie than Batman V Superman. I know that's not really helping but still. A weak six stars and a onetime watch.
