Kinetic, silly, candy-colored, and hyperviolent, Birds of Prey is a serious treat for fans of comic book films. But it wouldn't work without the equal parts goofy, hilarious, and unhinged performance of its lead.February 11, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
Ultimately, the plot is as messy as its central character, trotting around with one shoe and a bacon sandwich in hand, but it's also a whole bunch of glittery, satisfying fun -- especially the unkempt, cheerful, chaotic energy of Harley Quinn.
Birds of Prey is a fruity cocktail of a movie. It goes down smooth, makes you giddy, and there's the possibility of a slight hangover.
The movie is delightfully odd but not consistently inspired, often straining to rewrite the rules of superhero cinema, a mixture of good and bad ideas all mashed together.
If Robbie explores more films like this, she could have a legit future as an action superstar. (pub. date Feb 2020)January 29, 2021 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)
Sep 14, 2020DC continues their trainwreck of a film universe with Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). When Harley Quinn's enemies come looking to settle the score with her after she's dumped by the Joker, she makes a deal with a crime lord named Roman Sionis to retrieve a stolen diamond in order to square things; meanwhile a club singer named Dinah Lance teams up with a rogue cop to protect a young pickpocket who stole the diamond. Starring Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosie Perez, and Ewan McGregor, the cast isn't too bad, but it's not all that impressive either. And the plot is all kinds of convoluted and puts its girl power/emancipation theme ahead of good storytelling. Still, the action scenes are fun and exciting, and the soundtrack brings a lot of energy to the film. An entertaining mess, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is yet another mediocre effort by DC.Dann M Super Reviewer
May 19, 2020If COVID-19 ushered cinemas off this mortal coil, I'm kind of strangely okay with telling people this was the last thing I ever got to see on the big screen.Gimly M Super Reviewer
Mar 24, 2020Birds of Prey is a good example at what DC are doing correct. This is not the average comic book movie and it's refreshing to see. The cast is enjoyable and Robbie is ideal again in the central role of Harley Quinn. DC are managing to give the villain a chance to shine, and McGregor manages to breath life into Black Mask. I wasn't a massive fan of the change over and mask for Black Mask, it was actually better when McGregor had the mask off. The film is not perfect, but the gritty tone was ideal for the film and I hope DC can continue with this style of storytelling with the next films in the series. 22/03/2020Brendan N Super Reviewer
