If you want to see Suicide Squad done right, then Batman: Assault on Arkham is for you. My first time trying to watch it 2 yrs ago, I didn't give it a chance for some reason. I think I didn't like the animation then but it's really not bad.
However Batman: Assault on Arkham is one of the best Batman movies. Troy Baker surprisingly is the best Joker voice since Mark Hamill. I wouldn't mind more from him if Hamill is done now.
Harley Quinn is pretty hot. If you think Margot Robbie is too hot or slutty looking in the new movie. Then see this movie where she even distracts guys by going topless. Oh and she has Deadshot help her scratch an itch, if you know what I mean.
Deadshot is a little heroic. So Will Smith actually saying "time to save the world" as Deadshot in Suicide Squad, annoys me less after seeing this movie.

Not bad, I guess. There were a lot of weird choices in this movie.

Kind of spoilery:
The music in this movie was garbage. A whole lot of hardcore techno stuff. It sucked, and threw a lot of moments that might have been good.
The opening credits style intro of all the characters was nuts. It was just a montage of people failing and getting caught. These people are then meant to be the protagonists of the movie.
Batman causes a lot of people to die, on purpose in this movie. He doesn't pull the trigger himself, but good people would be alive if it wasn't for him.
I thought it was weird Waller chose just then to do the mission, considering she could have waited until Batman had taken care of the bomb stuff, and not risked destroying Gotham to cover up her mistakes.

I did like some the interactions and dynamics of the characters in the Suicide Squad, where they fought and argued, but it still made sense for the personalities. Deadshot was a little too "Badass" for my likings, but whatevs.

The voice acting in this was pretty good actually. Kevin Conroy is back. Troy Baker actually does a pretty good Joker. Hearing Starfire be Harley was odd at first, but I got used to it. And everyone else was fine (but not really stand out).

The movie seemed okay. Better than some of the other DC animations lately, but not that great.
