Last night we escaped the mundane routine of watching the idiot box at home and decided to go out to the movies and see Birds of Prey: the emancipation of one Harley Quinn.
My wife being a huge Harley Quinn fan so it was inevitable that we were going to check this one out not long after it’s release.
A little breakdown, Harley Quinn tells her story from the beginning to present where she and the Joker have split and everyone finds out and everyone wants to kill her, and without Mr J’s protection things get quite interesting for Harley. It intertwines with the tail of the dc group birds of prey and how they came to be.
It featured some great name actors such as Australias own Margot Robbie, Ewan McGregor, Rosie Perez and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
There were some terrific action scenes with a little bit of added gore which made for some excitement. The story line was good as were the effects.
Did the film fully impress me? No, not really. I think I went into it expecting more than what it gave. It wasn’t bad, I still liked the film immensely, however it lacked that certain something to be great.
There was the great empowerment of women for this movie which I suspect will make lots of the female audience happy.
The potential for more was there but it just didn’t quite make it..
