Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) Review


Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley ...

Hey Lovelies, 

One of the last films to come out before the Coronavirus cinema closures, saw Margot Robbie return to the big screen as Harley Quinn. The infamous figure, who not only ruled Suicide Squad but most of a year. Costumes, quotes, and never-ending memes saw the character become a phenomenon. Something that will continue to happen, with the release of Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) on Digital Download as of today.

With an incredible mostly all-female cast, Robbie returns not only as the lead but as the producer of the feature. Marking the first outing for DC’s all-women superhero team, it is a kick-ass story about how us ladies’ rule everything we do. After a fast recap on what took place in Suicide Squad, we soon learn that Quinn and the Joker are no more.

Deciding to deal with the breakup by driving into the chemical plant where their relationship first began, the feature sees her attempts at coping on her own. Well, coping in Quinn style. Buying a hyena, playing roller derby, and living in a never-ending glitter-filled party, the film soon sees her leaving behind men for good for her ultimate crew of women. A crew that we will all be seeking to join when lockdown ends.

Easing audiences in with narration from Quinn throughout, viewers are treated to the inner workings of Quinn’s mind. Just without the influence of the Joker. It does not provide a lot to the whole DC world. Yet, it gives you a joyful feature to watch in comparison to other DC films we have had recently. Quinn will forever be a figure we all adore since Suicide Squad and this feature proves that in many ways. You want to join her in the 80s like dance scenes. You even want to do the most horrific things because she is doing them.

Plus, with the addition of new characters, who are also through bad blood that you just love, the feature flows with ease. As we seek excitement more than ever, this feature provides it on endless occasions. Ideas never stop coming from the script and whilst this could cause clashes it does not. It makes the chaos, the flashbacks, and the joining together of the crew fun, big and fabulous.

Whilst Quinn isn’t at her strongest, compared to Suicide Squad, Birds Of Prey will bring excitement, fun and a huge element of partying into your home. All things that we want, need and are seeking during the lockdown.
