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!
