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

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

fun! robbie is exceptional in this broad but competent, sometimes grisly, pastel-colored cartoon version of a revenge/mafia movie meets a girl power team-up movie. it doesn’t really do either kind of movie beyond their most basic beats but it doesn’t do them poorly either, and it has a few good jokes (very much enjoyed the dramatic, slomo death of her sandwich) and clever action scenes i could actually see—that’s where the bar is. roller skates during a convertible car chase is genuinely [chef’s kiss] tho, also god ewan doing what i have to assume he thinks is his version of camp lol
