BIRDS OF PREY (8/10) It’s open season on Harley Quinn when her explosive breakup with the Joker puts a big fat target on her back. Unprotected and on the run, Quinn faces the wrath of narcissistic crime boss Black Mask, his right-hand man, Victor Zsasz, and every other thug in the city. But things soon even out for Harley when she becomes unexpected allies with three deadly women — Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya.
Talk about MAJOR GIRL POWER!!
If you are looking for an extremely extravagant, over-the-top superhero flick with some bad-ass action sequences and killer references regarding feminism and heroism, then let me the one to tell you that BIRDS OF PREY is the perfect choice for you.
The thing that captivated me directly from the beginning is that despite being an anti-hero kind of films, it still held a lot of profound meanings and metaphors. Behind all the rage and the killings and the ever-so-beautiful fireworks, BIRDS OF PREY is a love letter to modern day feminism and the power of each and every woman in this man-made world.
In addition, the action/fight sequences were seriously choreographed to perfection. I was mind blown by the amount of hard work and dedication that was put to produce such level of excitement and visual satisfaction (which also included the amazing visual and graphics).
Acting wise, Margot Robbie is seriously a force to be reckoned with. Her personal interpretation of the lethal Harley Quinn is something to witness. Her gave her absolute best and its nothing short of genius and admirable.
Ewan McGregor and Chris Messina as the main antagonists in this story was a great choice. They both did a remarkable job in portraying their characters.
In a nutshell, everyone delivered amazing performances which helped in setting a nice flow of events.
Generally speaking, BIRDS OF PREY is an extremely enjoyable and entertaining film that just delivered what it promised. Fun, fun and more fun!!
I highly recommend it!!
