I am not 100% sure what I was expecting when I went in to this one.  I had a good idea from the trailer that it was going to be full of cheap, gimmicky laughs and overdone, bland action sequences.  That turned out to be wishful thinking.  I wanted to enjoy it as the concept of a villain cast is much more appealing, or at least refreshing, than just another good guy action flick with little to no turmoil or struggle.  Unfortunately, DC relied too much on the antihero theme, explosions, and corn ball lines instead of character development.  I suppose I should have set my standards to generic blockbuster action flick, but I was hoping to get a little more out of it.  The biggest impact this film had was introducing people to Harley Quinn in a cinematic way and setting the stage for the most popular Halloween costume.
