Today went see BIRDS OF PREY starting Margot Robbie This was surprisingly great. It’s definitely one of the most fun and thoroughly entertaining DCEU movies I’ve seen.
Margot Robbie real steals the show as Harley Quinn, in a film that is beautifully centered around her emancipation from The Joker. For those that were complaining she was too subservient to The Joker in SUCIDE SQUAD, this film honors that with Harley having more of her own agency this time around. Robbie does a really splendid job at making Harley feel like a real person. There were a couple moments where I empathized with Harley in a genuinely heartbreaking and emotional way.
The other characters are all well defined and acted, but for me Ewan McGregor was a real highlight as Roman Sionis. As Black Mask, McGregor is always funny, charming, unpredictable, and danger feelings on the film in a nutshell. I’ve read other people describe this film as “JOHN WICK meets LOONEY TUNES” and I think that’s a very apt description. It’s an inherently silly movie, with a lot of heart and an overabundance of style to compensate. The style is very deliberate, never feeling corny or hackneyed.
With some stellar fight choreography and inventive action sequences, BIRDS OF PREY succeeds where SUICIDE SQUAD failed. It leaves room for the characters to grow, and the ending smartly sets up a franchise of its own. It’s a damn good time at the movies. I enjoyed so much one favorite entertainment comic book movie all time it was amazing this movie .
