Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) ★★★★★

This movie pops beyond belief.
It's exactly like someone understood what Suicide Squad was trying to do, and just delivered a perfected version of it on a silver platter instead of some gutter trash.
It's absolutely crushing that this movie bombed because no one trusted it after Suicide Squad, and we get fucked out of a sequel.
It has the sharp, snappy pacing of something akin to an Edgar Wright movie, and manages to have so many threads going at a time without ever feeling like a mess.
The scenes are stunning, the writing is clever and flows and every character makes sense; is hot, is likeable, is hot, genuinely is fucking cool, and they're hot.
It's like sitting down at a nice restaurant where every time you're finished a tasty colourful dish, a new one just appears in front of you. As soon as you're full, the credits roll.
A perfect rollercoaster ride from start to finish and a reminder of how you can still make some really cool stuff with these superhero movies even if so many of them suck shit.
Don't skip it!
