If you haven't seen the new Suicide Squad movie, SEE IT! It's fun, has a great script, great acting, production and visual effects.
After watching it, I began to think about some of the hidden messages I saw. And unlike almost every series or movie that is produced by the garbage entertainment system these days, Suicide Squad (at least in my mind) had some messages that lined up with my personal thought process.
Now a disclaimer; My views may or may not be in line with what the creators were trying to say, however these are my take aways.
1) Anti-Government. This was pretty obvious. The leader of the antagonist government was killed. His evil predecessor was killed. The US Government was complicit in the evil. And for icing, the stone cold high ranking US intelligence agent was knocked the @#$% out.
2) Anti-Media. The giant Starfish was a representation of the corrupt mainstream media that (at least in the USA) is merely a propaganda machine for the government and ruling class. The control the media gains by brainwashing the populace was illustrated perfectly by the placing of smaller Starfish over the faces of people who were then totally controlled by the Starfish.
3) Anti-Mask. We are all familiar with the masks we have had to wear to supposedly "fight the virus". So when the Starfish was running rampant masking all of the people with the small starfish, it was up to the heroic non-masked to save them. And save them they did. Powerful.
4) Also seemed to be some references to the 911 Twin Towers attacks. But, I won't go into that.
