Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) ★★★★½

Harley Quinn looking at the camera like she's on The Office was the moment when I realised I'm loving this movie :)
It's funny, violent, colourful and very comic-book-like; and all the things that made me (and almost everyone I know) hate "Suicide Squad" don't exist here: the characters are introduced gradually and we get to know their backstories and motivations before the action begins (sometimes hilariously so), we still see the story through the eyes of one character we get to empathise with; it's incredibly well-paced and the music doesn't take away all the attention and fits the scenes perfectly; and the runtime is great.
I left the cinema feeling energised, entertained and girl-powered; what else would you really want? %)
