Me being a die-hard fan of DC movies went to the first day first show of Bird of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). I was expecting a lot from the film and it didn’t disappoint. The beginning was boring, but when the night took its shape, it was a great ride. Margot Robbie acted with an unhinged passion, truly she is the best Harley Quinn. Intelligent and crazy is the most lethal and the most attractive combination.
At first, I didn’t like the non-linear theme of the plot, but when the pieces came together, I understood the notion that Harley wants to tell her story in a crazy but fantastic way. All DC fans know the characters well, but there were short backstories for each character for a global audience. It is an action movie, which will be loved by women as well. It is the ultimate action chick flick.
Talking about Ewan McGreggor as Roman Sionis AKA The Black Mask, he is pure talent. Ewan has played so many characters over the years and he embraces his roles to his skin and bones. His narcissistic and stylish method of playing The Black Mask is worth praising.
The direction by Cathy Yan deserves applause, she made a good comic book action film that will probably be a commercial hit. I don’t know if there will be another movie in the franchise or not, but there should be. The soundtrack should be listened loud on a car stereo, and what I loved the most about the production was the costume design. I would give the movie a 3.5/5 and yes we should watch it in the theatre.
