Movie Info

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.

  • Under the film's hyper-formatted style and impersonal action, there's a pretty good movie straining to break out-which makes the waste of its creators' earnest exertions all the more dismaying.

    February 16, 2020 | Full Review…
  • [Margot Robbie] herself is fantastic. The action choreography is pretty good... If I have a quibble: it has probably the worst needle drops of any movie in recent history.

    February 15, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Director Cathy Yan and producer/star [Margot] Robbie have brought something fresh, and uniquely feminist to DC's cinematic universe, creating a chaotic yet zesty comics-style spectacle that's exactly the killer escape at the movies it intends to be.

    February 10, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A bone-cracking visual feast, filled with screen-popping sets and costumes, enough hand-to-hand combat scenes to make Jason Statham seethe with envy, and a fantastic ensemble cast...

    February 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It offers a hundred different versions of Robbie gurning to camera - usually after bashing someone's head in with a baseball bat - and not a single moment to elevate the proceedings above a scrappy, screechy, second-rate cartoon hotchpotch.

  • "Birds of Prey" wants to fly high, powered by its own wild child, rule-breaking spirit. The truth is it never gets off the ground.

    Simply put, this movie was fantabulous!

    Continues a wining-ish streak for DC with a pretty solid film that is at the very least WAY better than Suicide Squad. It's messy as hell, at times crassly mean-spirited, and mostly not that funny, but for the most part it's still a great deal of fun. Harley is still a fun character, and this version of her that is more than just an oversexualized girlfriend of the Joker is a much more interesting character to follow. Her girl gang and resentful breakup is also just a very human story. Yeah it was done better in the animated series currently on DC Universe, but still, this one is fun. The other Birds are pretty good, especially Huntress, but this really is Harley's show, and she's good. I do have to give love to Ewan McGregor as Black Mask. Yeah he's done villains before, but good god, this is one helluva villain. I love the character Black Mask, and he absolutely nails the character. Charming, funny, completely psychotic, I was a happy geek watching him on screen. Not to mention McGregor is clearly having a ball in the roll, and that energy does pass on to you. Overall though Birds of Prey is a mess. It's plot is basically Snatch but not as good, and it's attitude is aggressive, but god damn does it ever have an attitude. It has an identity, a style, and a look I can't deny, and I will admit it was pretty fun. It's got some solid performances, characters I wanted to see, and a solid style. It's a wild swing, and while it doesn't totally nail it, I admire it's ambition.

    More fun than I anticipated. Yeah its kind of a mess but the movie embraces its full tilt weirdness in ways that are a little surprising.

    Really solid world building. Gotham City felt like the Gotham of Batman: TAS. Terrific ensemble cast!
