Leo Brady reviews “Birds of Prey” on AMovieGuy.com

Hiding in the shadows of the Suicide Squad and the massive success of Joker, arrives Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). That title is a mouthful, but this is a film that is doing things on it’s own terms. It’s a superhero movie, but a majority of the characters are villains. It’s about an all-girl team working together, but everyone is in it for themselves. It’s a mixture of action, laughs, meta commentary, breaking of the third wall, and one hell of a performance from Margot Robbie. Similar to Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine, I can’t picture anyone better to play Harley Quinn, the pigtailed, bat swinging, egg sandwich eating partner of the Joker. But this time she’s unleashed, and she’s bringing a posse of ladies with her for the fun. Birds of Prey is a different kind of comic book movie because you can’t pin it down. It’s in your face, it’s wild, free, and that’s why it’s good.
