It may be among the top-grossing films of 2016, but now the dust has settled, let's all admit something: Suicide Squad sucked.

We're hardly putting forth a controversial opinion here - the film "enjoys" an approval rating of just 26 per cent among fans and critics on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes - but thankfully, the team at Screen Junkies have put together an "Honest Trailer" to hilariously track just where it all went wrong for the much-hyped film.

Find out exactly where Suicide Squad went wrong.

In a similar vein to recent "honest trailers" for disappointing reboots of Ghostbusters and Independence Day, their Suicide Squad video pokes fun at a film that's at pains to point out how edgy and bad its antiheroes are at every turn.

Apologies to homegrown stars Jai Courtney and Margot Robbie - apparently your characters amount to "some drunk guy with a boomerang" and a "90-pound girl with a bat".

Those two got off relatively lightly, though: special snark is reserved for Cara Delevingne - who "makes the jump from modelling to acting like the wavy inflatable arm things outside car dealerships" - and the controversial Joker Jared Leto, who Screen Junkies dub "Heath Lesser".

"Experience Jared Leto's intense character acting that blurred the line between actor, character - and total douchebag," says the narrator, pointing out that Leto "does in just 10 minutes of screentime what no other actor has been able to do: Make the Joker totally suck."

Oh, and bonus points to Screen Junkies for FINALLY pointing out something that's been bugging us about sci-fi and comic book movies for years now - why does every bad guy's plan to destroy the world nowadays involve the use of a Giant Electric Magnetic Sky Beam Force Field Thingo?
