I enjoyed the movie. Although, the script and screenplay are not fantastic as it took a while for the girl crew to find themselves and form. Then it further took a longer while before the movie became about Harley. Other than that, it was fun time at the movies which this R-rated DC film. The movie is better than Suicide Squad (2016), but not the best superhero movie out there or even in the DCEU.
Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) yeap, that is the name Warner Bros. is running with. The name maybe long, but it serves what the movie is supposed to be about. It is a superhero film based on the DC Comics’ team Birds of Prey. It is the eighth film in the DC Extended Universe. It is a sequel/follow-up to and a spin-off of Suicide Squad (2016) It stars Margot Robbie (who was wonderful) as Harley Quinn and she also co-produce the movie.
The movie has fantastic visuals and Cathy Yan the director on her second full length movie, had control and did a fine job in the way she allowed the movie’s storyline gently develop. She placed in between enough action so the viewer will not be bored, before the story itself births its main plot.

The plot starts with Harley and the Joker have broken up. Harley is messed up about it and is struggling to cope. She then decided to make a grand gesture of a middle finger to the world and her Ex, but in doing so she forgot all the people she had wronged in the past.
When she was Joker’s girl nobody dared to touch her, they all feared what the Joker will do. Now that she is by herself all hell broke loss on the revenge line.
Soon we get to see all the members of the proposed girl crew, each with their own either shown origin story or told origin story.
What led to each of them meeting each other was a young girl the gangster Roman Sionis/Black Mask wants. Roman sent everyone after her, including Harley. Huntress is on her own vendetta mission, which happens to cross paths with Roman, Canary at the time worked for Roman and Renee Montoya the detective was building a case against Roman, soon because of the girl all their paths cross.

What led to them bonding is for you to watch and find out, if you do watch the movie you will find it enjoyable.
