#SheWatches – Birds of Prey

February 7, 2020

 All DC comic fans have to see Director, Cathy Yan’s, Birds Of Prey, it’s part of the process. If anything, just to watch the magnificent Margot Robbie playing her energetic, crazy, super intelligent avenging character, Harley Quinn. Akin to the Kill Bill series in a DC way, which is why I enjoyed it. 

Thanks to She Society and Roadshow Films, I got to watch a girl gang movie. Explosive, action-packed, hilarious one liners and a group of four super-fit, strong, intelligent, powerful women.  

No two females are alike, even the young thief Cass who has a target on her head, has a twisted sense of survival. But you wouldn’t want it any other way. 

And poor Harley, rejected by the Joker, Gotham now dealing with her own crazy yet effective, damaging repercussions for everyone to clean up.   

Look out men when the gals eventually band together to fight for their cause. You have a psycho, mafia princess, a cop, a songbird and the relentless “Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn” who tells us the tale. I loved it when Harley speaks directly to the camera, no holding back with Margot’s acting ability.

Thinking about it, Birds of Prey, is based around individual females dealing with their own personal break up of some kind. The common denominator for their eventual bond? Gotham’s narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, also known as Black Mask (played by Ewan McGregor). Like his sick side-kick Victor Zsasz (Chris Messina), he has a thing for skin heads and masks. I’m not talking about the guys with shaved heads who walk our streets. Black Mask is a collector, dried or freshly scalped, yikes!

These diverse women support each other and get the job done. It was about working together. 

Cast: Marot Robbie “Harley Quinn” was also the producer and maybe why her full acting abilities dazzled. 

Mary Elizabeth Winstead “Huntress”, Junee Smollett-Bell “Black Canary”, Rosie Perez “Rosie Perez, the Cop”, Ella Jay Basco “Cassandra Cain the young streetwise hustler” are a force to be reckoned with. 

In Australian cinemas now
