After her breakup with the Joker, Harley Quinn joins forces with singer Black Canary, assassin Huntress, and police detective Renee Montoya to help a young girl named Cassandra, who had a hit placed on her after she stole a rare diamond from crime lord Roman Sionis.
Harnessing the proverb that it is ‘more fun being the bad guy’, Birds of Prey excels in its anti-hero spin on Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) with a delightful, psychotic energy. While it may struggle at times with pacing issues and fully recognising the potential of its cast and world, Cathy Yan’s film ultimately proves a successful romp that only extends DC’s recent hot streak.
