Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay is the tenth film of the DC Animated Movie Universe. Obviously releasing to leech some of the popularity from the first Suicide Squad film for the silver screen. I watched it recently on HBO Max.
The movie has a Task Force X led by Deadshot (Floyd Lawton) who doesn’t have much time left to serve in prison. One last mission and he’ll be a free man.
When he’s betrayed by two members, Count Vertigo and Jewelee, he informs them that Amanda Waller has a button to end their existence. Now he needs new members on the team.
Which includes incredibly powerful people, and of course, the unpredictable Harley Quinn.
They are searching for a mystic item from the god Nabu. If Amanda Waller doesn’t get her hands on it, she’ll see them all executed, just out of spite.
And unfortunately, it’s a highly sought out item. And they aren’t the only ones hot on the trail.
Overall Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay is a decent animated movie. I’m glad it’s much different from either Suicide Squad movie starring Margot Robbie for the sake of originality. Like most of its sister films, it’s good but not quite great.
