Storyline

A twisted tale told by Harley Quinn herself, when Gotham's most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya's paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.

Trivia

Out of the main five characters, Helena, Harley, Renee, and Cassandra are all relative newcomers to the Gotham corner of the DC universe (given that it's eighty years old). Helena Bertinelli was created in 1989 to replace Helena Wayne who was previously Huntress before the Crisis on Infinite Earths reboot in 1986. Harley and Renee were created in 1992 for Batman: The Animated Series (1992). Renee appeared in the main DC Universe a few months before she was in the show but Harley didn't make the move until 1999. That was the same year that Cassandra was created for the "Batman: No Man's Land" Batfamily Crossover. Black Canary is the only "classic" character being used (created in 1947) but Dinah (Laurel) Lance didn't get powers or take over for her mother (Dinah Drake Lance) until 1983. All of them are beating much older characters to appearing in this universe like Dick Grayson or Barbara Gordon. See more »

Birds of Prey
22 March 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

Continues a wining-ish streak for DC with a pretty solid film that is at the very least WAY better than Suicide Squad. It's messy as hell, at times crassly mean-spirited, and mostly not that funny, but for the most part it's still a great deal of fun. Harley is still a fun character, and this version of her that is more than just an oversexualized girlfriend of the Joker is a much more interesting character to follow. Her girl gang and resentful breakup is also just a very human story. Yeah it was done better in the animated series currently on DC Universe, but still, this one is fun. The other Birds are pretty good, especially Huntress, but this really is Harley's show, and she's good. I do have to give love to Ewan McGregor as Black Mask. Yeah he's done villains before, but good god, this is one helluva villain. I love the character Black Mask, and he absolutely nails the character. Charming, funny, completely psychotic, I was a happy geek watching him on screen. Not to mention McGregor is clearly having a ball in the roll, and that energy does pass on to you. Overall though Birds of Prey is a mess. It's plot is basically Snatch but not as good, and it's attitude is aggressive, but god damn does it ever have an attitude. It has an identity, a style, and a look I can't deny, and I will admit it was pretty fun. It's got some solid performances, characters I wanted to see, and a solid style. It's a wild swing, and while it doesn't totally nail it, I admire it's ambition.
