Review: Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

The first comic book film of 2020 is upon us, and this time it is DC out of the gate. And while Joker is winning at the Oscars, it is a different take on R rated comic book movies we find in The Harley Quinn movie.

Is it strange to have a movie that is essentially a spin-off of Batman and then Joker (or suicide squad), so close after a movie based around the Joker, that is set in an entirely different universe? Well, tough Sh*t. Sorry, channelling my inner Harley there.

Summary: You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.

Is it Good?

Currently, it has a 60 in Metacritic, with some saying it’s a 10, and some giving it a 0. So I guess it’s a bit of a marmite film – you will either love it or hate it.
