It feels good to be bad...Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?
In a scene where a car arrives at a building, Waller's bodyguards are egregiously deficient. As she exits her vehicle a guard armed with an automatic rifle allows her to cross in front of him, blocking his view and putting his primary in a potential crossfire. Moments later she approaches a door flanked by two similarly armed guards, both of whom turn their back on the threat zone to open the door for Waller--who is perfectly capable of opening a door for herself. These are both major breaches of bodyguard protocol.
In the scene where Deadshot is practicing with weapons while still being incarcerated, no one is wearing hearing protection. This is required in any facility where firearms are shot, and it surely should have been enforced in a government-run prison facility of all places.
When Griggs is talking to Harley Quinn he mentions that she has injured 5 of his guards. He would not refer to them as guards. Corrections officers do not refer to themselves as guards. He would call them COs (corrections officers) or officers.
The length of Joel Kinnaman's hair as Rick Flagg constantly changes from short to medium revealing that those specific scenes were re-shoots.
The admiral Waller has dinner with has a name tag on his uniform naming him "MacKensie" but the credits name him "Olsen."
When Deadshot first sees the Enchantress' soldiers the camera goes to a medium close up of him, and you can see Harley Quinn's hand on his shoulder. After the camera cuts to a close up of one faceless soldier, it cuts to back to Deadshot where we see Harley Quinn walk up behind him and then rest her hand on his shoulder.
When Harley is laying on the table and asks "What are you gonna do, you gonna kill me, Mr. J?", from her POV The Joker brings the shock prods outward while opening his mouth wide but in the very next cut (different angle) his mouth is almost shut saying "Oh I'm not gonna kill ya...".
The color saturation and styling of Harley Quinn's hair changes drastically and inexplicably between scenes. Most notably, when the squad is given their equipment and clothing to change from their prison garb, her hair is suddenly smooth, curled on the ends and the colored ends seem to be much brighter. Later, after the battle in the rainstorm when dried, her hair is once again curled neatly at the ends of the pigtails. This is physically impossible without styling.
In the Helicopter heading into the city, The camera shows Harley holding a phone with a message from Joker, A close up of her hand shows her thumb and thumb nail bare. A few scenes later when they begin to shoot the cannon fodder, Harley's nails are painted.
When the Suicide Squad chooses their kill weapons; and Slim Shady started playing, Harley Quinn has her mallet, then instantaneously a bat with the same painted colors.
When Enchantress brings the binder from the Weapons Ministry Vault in Tehran to the Chairman, he opens the book left to right. The book would be all in Persian, meaning the folder would open right to left, following Persian script.
June's last name is spelled "Moon" in the credits. Enchantress's file in the film, and the comic canon, states that her name is spelled "June Moone".
Military-grade explosives do not explode when shot at; the require a blasting cap to be set off. This is a safety feature of such materials. Deadshot would know this with his expertise.
Jared Leto's real tattoos are visible in multiple scenes. Most notably, the triad logos on both of his forearms are seen through the shirt during the strip club scene.
After Diablo is knocked away by Incubus (just before taking his demonic form) the scythe tattoo on his forehead has switched from facing his right to his left, meaning the image was mirrored.
