The follow up to Suicide Squad portrays strong female characters helping out an angry, lovesick Harley Quinn. After her very public announcement regarding her break up with the Joker, Harley Quinn finds that her previous position as the Joker's girlfriend provided her protection from all her past enemies. Now she's alone and in need of friends. Enter Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya and one teen pick pocket that leads to some very entertaining scenes. Worth the watch for female-centered action.

I was excited to see that Harley was getting her own movie since she did so well in the Suicide Squad (really the only character that I liked in that movie). Unfortunately, Birds of Prey was made by DC producers/directors/executives who are stuck in the 80's on how movies are to be. It had a good cast and could have been a great movie, but it was not that good. Missed the mark again for me DC.

Let me just throw it out there: this movie is not for kids. It is rated R. It has A LOT of uses of the f-word. You know the one. It's more violent than "Suicide Squad" was.

Review: "'Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)' is really about Harley’s breakup from the Joker and the formation of the Birds of Prey. Like anyone who has gone through a bad breakup, Harley begins drinking away her problems, gets a new pet, cuts her hair, and eats Cheez-Whiz straight from the can. She realizes her taste in men is terrible and that she’s never truly been on her own before; it’s scary for her.

If you enjoy a team of fine women beating up men, you will love this movie. The action scenes are a whole lot of fun and there is never really a moment where I worried one of the actresses wasn’t going to make it out alive. Do I love a tense, life-or-death situation? Yes, but there was also a sense of security and comfort knowing that these women were ultimately going to be fine. Once again: see Sarah’s and my conversation about Charlie’s Angels.

There was a tweet I saw about how the villain of the movie is really toxic masculinity and that’s spot on. A majority of the main characters are directly affected by things like workplace sexism, gaslighting, emotional abuse, being constantly underestimated, neglect, etc. at the hands of men. The women don’t hesitate in joining forces and the pivotal fight scene of the movie is the four adult women protecting a young Cassandra Cain. Even just thinking about all the strong moments of girl power is making me tear up right now at my computer."
