“Birds Of Prey” is a vibrant, cheeky and stylised team-up of DC Comics” female anti-heroes,which is designed as a satire to show the position of women in the comic book universe. This is the eighth film in the DC Extended Universe and a sort of a follow-up to the 2016-released “Suicide Squad”.
While “Suicide Squad” was a convoluted drama with Harley Quinn as just one of the flawed characters of the film, in “Birds Of Prey” she outshines, making it feel more like a Harley Quinn solo film than an ensemble effort, especially since the titular group doesn”t assemble until deep into the third act. This isn”t exactly a negative thing, it simply means that some members of the ensemble get less focus than the others.
Billed on posters under the unwieldy title, “Birds Of Prey” (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), it is the second collaborative outing for the character, with Margot Robbie repeating her performance and screaming for the spotlight.
