Birds of Prey (And the Fabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn continues from where she left off in Suicide Squad – newly separated from the Joker – trying to find her life without him. With the Joker, she always had protection; now, she is on her own and has to face the various villains in Gotham City – in this case, the Black Mask (played by a rather uninteresting Ewan McGregor). Overall, I liked the movie; it has a lot of fun, colorful action, and Margot Robbie is always great to watch. She makes Harley Quinn a fresh and bold character. I wasn’t that taken by the actual story; it lacks the depth of really good superhero films, and the screenplay felt rushed so that I never really felt like I knew the Black Mask or the women who ultimately formed the team to take on the Black Mask. I give it a thumbs up, mostly for the pure entertainment value, even if it wasn’t really fulfilling entertainment. (2020; 3 Stars)
