Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (2020) (BLU-RAY/DVD REVIEW)
DIRECTED BY: Cathy Yan
Starring: Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell
RATED: R/REGION A/2.39/1080P/NUMBER OF DISCS 2
AVAILABLE FROM Warner Bros.

When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor), and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz (Chris Messina), put a target on a young girl named Cass (Ella Jay Basco), the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley (Margot Robbie), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez)’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.

While Suicide Squad might not have been everyone’s cup of tea, it was a pretty universal opinion that Harley Quinn was awesome from that. So here she is headlining her own movie, Birds of Prey! And it seems to follow the usual route of DC movies since Man of Steel, being a flawed but still fun movie that I think most people will have a good time with if you never think about it too much and just watch it kicked back with popcorn in hand. In this R-rated action-comedy, we have Harley as our star and narrator telling a slightly out of order story where she has broken up with The Joker and now finds herself in Gotham with everything that made her untouchable now gone and with people out to get her, especially the flamboyant Black Mask. When a diamond comes up missing, Harley has 24 hours to find the little girl that took it but all the while she has a bounty on her head as well. Like I said before, it’s fun stuff!

It becomes even more clear while watching this one that Margot Robbie was born to play the role of Harley Quinn and if you enjoyed her as this character before, you will find yourself in an overload of her here. The plot is a little so-so in spots, but it’s saved for the most part with a great setting in some very elaborate sections of Gotham and the fun of the characters. Nothing here ever gets too serious and I feel this is a movie that calls for a laid-back nature. I also think our other characters like Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) are also fun characters and are nice additions to the DCEU. Also, to his credit, Ewan McGregor is a good bad guy in Black Mask. Birds of Prey reminds me of a 90s action movie with all the bells and whistles of today’s world. It’s a bit silly, but I’d expect nothing less from a movie headlined by the character of Harley Quinn. Like Suicide Squad, this is a DC movie that at least tells a solid story without trying to cram too much in like older DC movies were doing.
