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

Harley only has a single hyena rather than two because the effects for its photorealistic animation were so intensive they could only afford one. See more »

Goofs

After buying an egg sandwich, it focuses on the fact she is wearing one flat shoe and one heeled boot. She is then chased by the police and is wearing two flat shoes from then on. This is a running gag as later in the film, Black Canary comments "When the fuck did she have time to do a shoe change." See more »

Quotes

Harley Quinn: [voice over] And what's worse, every person I ever wronged now felt free to come and take their pound of flesh. Turns out, I wronged a lot of people.

User Reviews

A Disgraceful DC Chick Flick.
10 July 2020 | by Impartial-CriticSee all my reviews

To simply put it without wasting anybody's time unlike my time was wasted watching this garbage, Birds of Prey And ....etc is a chance completely wasted! should've been, Harley Quinn (add any lame title here), There's No Notable presence of Birds of Prey here. The film is How Harley Quinn stood against a gay version of Black Mask.

The plot story and the directing is a true to heart chick flick and clearly influenced by the feminist movement. The script emphasizing blindly on discriminating against men by representing all male characters in either gay, bisexual portrait or an evil and traitorous manner! The female on the other hand are represented is sadly based on race not on the relation to the comics character nor the fans desire, which is clearly a method of trying to tastelessly involve everyone that no race feels left out! I.e., the choosing of an Asian Cassandra Cain over Barbra Gordon.

The disaster starts from the casting process, I'll never stop believing that Margot Robbie is a very bad depiction of Harley Quinn, From the looks which is feels way off, as Margot has a long face while Harley has a round face to the fact that she does not feel or sound the same, least to say how different Arleen Sorkin says Mr. J or Puddin' with a nerdy yet playful way and how Margot fails to represent that. Not to mention the ridiculous child size mallet they gave her in this movie. I believe the main reason why many fans drool over Margot in the first place is mainly because they didn't see anyone else play the role on a big screen yet not because Margot is a good actress or can represent Harley well. The scenes decorations feels like it was designed by a crazed extravagant fashion designer and the fighting scenes along with the directing is obviously all over the place in a disastrous manner.

My suggestion is don't waste your time or money on this garbage until the suits learn how to make a proper Harley movie.
