Birds of Prey

Critics Consensus

While it's a fun and well-paced contribution to the DC franchise, Birds of Prey is weighed down by complex narratives and hokey performances.

Complicated it may be, but it's also clear and clever.

The show's look is sleek, but all the Batman mythology seems like little more than yet another way to repackage WB angst.

It's not quite the "Buffyverse," but it does tweak the DC Comics canon.

Jun 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The photography, sets and costumes are first-rate, but the acting settles into a glib, amateurish rut. The performers don't sell the illusion; they keep calling attention to it.

Corny in the best possible way and action-packed, this female-led season is massively underrated and unexpectedly fun!

It's hard to get past the copious amounts of leather and its Dawson's Creek vibe.

In fact, the premise was so convoluted, it required an opening sequence where Alfred explained who everyone was every week.

It's as if the show doesn't exactly know what it wants to be; it tries to be witty and caustic and then to be serious, and fails at both.

Birds mixes the foxy-cuties-in-action of Charlie's Angels and the dark mutant fantasy of X-Men. It's fun, fast, no-cal.

If you want some idea of just how difficult it is to make comic-book-style action dovetail with heartfelt emotionalism, tune in to Birds of Prey, a migraine-inducingly complex superhero saga.
