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

Starring: Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as the Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as The Black Canary and rounding out the cast Ewan McGregor as the Black Mask. Some of you might be surprised that I went to see this movie. To be honest I am a little surprised myself. First of all, I am not a big fan of Marvel movies. I agree with Martin Scorsese that Marvel movies aren’t ​really cinema. I know, this is a DC Comics picture. DC Comics, Marvel Comics, the same thing. So, what possessed me on a bright, sunny, Sunday afternoon to enter a dark cavern in a multiplex and witness mayhem at its finest? Margot Robbie, that’s what. Plus, there isn’t’ a whole lot to choose from right now and I have actually heard good things about this movie. So, I hustled there inside and friends, I am here to tell you I am glad I did! This is 109 minutes of pure entertainment! A tip of the hat to Quentin Tarantino for some of the action scenes sure looked familiar. If you are going to steal, steal from the best, I always say! I don’t know much about the source material because I stopped reading comics when I was 12, but this movie has legs and stands on its own. Written and directed by women, with strong female leads, this movie is a towering monument to female empowerment. Lot’s a diversity on display here too. Visually stunning Gotham City never looked better as photographed by lensman Mathew Libatique, and a killer sound track that perfectly matches the action, this movie is solid entertainment. Two thumbs way up!

  1. Ghost Dog, I still have yet to see this one. I remember it was one of the few remaining in my local theatre while the pandemic was blowing up by the day. I’ll add it to my Watchlist!

  2. I saw this one a few months back. It’s an action-packed extravaganza with lots of bright colors if I remember right. Robbie is a versatile actress that has gotten many plum roles (I loved her in I, Tonya!) I like the Grrrrl Power in it. McGregor was an appropriately slimy villain. I agree with Scorcese and you about these comic book universes, but sometimes nice for a change of pace. Good review, Ghost Dog!

    • I agree it was a nice change of pace, I have only seen a little of it so far, but I think they take the R rating too seriously. I hear f-bombs threw around with no meaning but to feel edgy but I still like what I have seen from it so far!

  3. Started watching a little of this a few nights ago! Margot Robbie will always be my Quinn! I love Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World! Also Ewan McGregor is filled with charisma in any role he takes!
