Birds of Prey: fun with crazy punk Margot Robbie

Onze score

Birds of Prey easily overshadows Suicide Squad, the supervillain film which introduced the character of Harley Quinn four years ago.

The complete title – Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn – betrays that the supervillain from Suicide Squad (Margot Robbie as a crazy punk who loves violence) is learning to stand on her own two feet. The secondary characters like Black Canary and Cassandra Cain are emancipatory, but don’t expect a feminist tract.

Director Cathy Yan doesn’t hesitate to give us cartoonish violence, vibrant colours, and fun action sequences. Birds of Prey easily overshadows Suicide Squad.
