      Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) Reviews

      Birds of Prey is a female directed, written, and produced action flick. It’s something anyone old enough to see an R-rated movie can enjoy...

      Full Review | Original Score: A- | Mar 8, 2023

      Next to [2004's] Catwoman, this the most egregious example among superhero films of filmmakers warping established characters to suit their own tastes and ideas rather than giving fans what they want to pay for.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Jan 23, 2023

      There's this thing about bad vs. badder that does not help the stakes around anti-heroes or villains movies. This film is a mix of a lot of stuff that separated could've worked, but together is just incoherence. [Full review in Spanish]

      Abandons the “Why so serious?” tone of its [DCEU] predecessors and instead screams “Let’s put a smile on that face!”

      It’s a flocking good time.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Aug 24, 2022

      It’s a female-led action-comedy directed by a woman, written by a woman, and essentially about getting on in life without a man. Together those things are an overdue breath of fresh air. But they don’t automatically make for a good movie.

      Birds of Prey is not just a fun film but one of substance and depth.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Jul 18, 2022

      Birds of Prey employs many of the same visual tricks as Suicide Squad, such as cartoony onscreen titles to introduce its characters, but Yan has more control over her film than Ayer did over his.

      Joker showed that DC is not afraid to take risks. Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of Harley Quinn) continues that trend and pushes more boundaries.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4 | Feb 18, 2022

      Outstanding fight scenes, well-crafted characters, and a team of powerful women are at the center of a movie that's both written and directed even better than I hoped it might be. This twisted story, told by one Harley Quinn, is a must-watch.

      Full Review | Original Score: A | Feb 11, 2022

      A riot of good time entertainment, full of pop and fizz and punches to the nuts

      With this film, "Bombshell", and "I, Tonya", Robbie is proving to be one of the most versatile actresses of our time.

      Full Review | Original Score: B+ | Jun 23, 2021

      [This] is pretty refreshing for a film that could have just as easily settled for extending a comic-book brand with a bit of toothless corporate feminism.

      Full Review | Jun 4, 2021

      A fun, stylish, and female-empowering comic book adaptation. I loved the colorful atmosphere, fight choreography, and costumes! But it's the details acknowledging the female existence that stays with me.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | May 22, 2021

      Amid the movie's fun, if at times ham-handed girl power moments, and artfully choreographed fight scenes, this scene stands out for its serious-minded and affecting portrayal of sexual harassment.

      Full Review | Feb 11, 2021

      Kinetic, silly, candy-colored, and hyperviolent, Birds of Prey is a serious treat for fans of comic book films. But it wouldn't work without the equal parts goofy, hilarious, and unhinged performance of its lead.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Feb 11, 2021

      It's all frivolous fun sprinkled with a recurring theme of female independence that seems well ahead of its time.

      Full Review | Feb 11, 2021

      Between its outrageous characters and fantastic final act, there is plenty for fans to love from this colorfully rambunctious joy ride.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10 | Feb 11, 2021

      Ultimately, the plot is as messy as its central character, trotting around with one shoe and a bacon sandwich in hand, but it's also a whole bunch of glittery, satisfying fun -- especially the unkempt, cheerful, chaotic energy of Harley Quinn.

      Full Review | Feb 11, 2021

      Are there issues that could have been fixed to make this movie even better? Yes, but it's enough to make me want to see more of these characters, makes me want to see more films, and I can't wait to see what they do at how they expand this universe.
