There are plenty of women in the world that could make this movie a financial success. Maybe, just maybe, there's no interest in a Birds of Prey film.

This movie is a spin off of a shitty movie.

They should probably blame the horrible marketing and the fact this film is handcuffed to Suicide Squad.

Saw it yesterday. I know About thirty seconds in That it wasn’t my cup of tea.
Something that you may watch on Netflix at 2AM when you can’t sleep.

Maybe unpopular opinion, but Margot overacts as Harley

This.

I know Harley is a great character and Margot is hot and all.

But this film version has become a walking one liner that is insufferable.

I’d go see it if they all got naked. Is that pro-feminism?

Yeah, I never understood all the praise for her in suicide squad. I thought she was terrible.

It had that grisly stench of death about it from the trailers. Nothing really popped out saying "you have to see this!"

They had a fairly popular (though Robbie has been in some real stinkers during her short career) lead actress and sort of rolled her on out there hoping she could carry a weak movie on sheer chutzpah. There was some decent talent in the cast alongside her so that wasn't the problem.

It just looks like one of those movies that never really manages to come together so it arrives as a disjointed mess.

Funniest part of this is that Jeremy Jahns and Screen Rant (Pitch Meetings) said they would have loved to see a movie about The Huntress and her story (based on what was gleaned from BOP)

The Critical Drinker says it's a shite movie, and based off of his review, I'm inclined to believe it.

It sounds like another unwieldy mess of a team-up. Poor character development sans Black Canary, shite acting done by the girl playing Cassandra Cain (and WTF did they did to that character anyway? It's Cassandra in name only. frick you DC), five different plot threads going at once, and nonsense action sequences.

DC doesn't understand ensemble cast superhero movies. At all. They fricking suck at it.

Make a good movie and people will go see a female led superhero film.

Maybe take some pointers from Emily Blunt's character in Edge of Tomorrow too.

Here we go.

The movie is horribly packaged to a general audience not in the know.

We knew this was going to happen...sexists, sexists everywhere.

Interesting that they blame sexist men for the movie bombing when there are more women in the U.S than men.

Women don’t know how to go see movies now?

Others say the unwieldy title of "Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)" might be partially to blame.


It is. I dont know why they did that. I mean i'm not saying it was a big part of the tanking but it's similar to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. That was a fantastic movie that made the mistake of a kind of cool but incredibly stupid name. You're turning off quite a few people that just walk up to a ticket counter wanting to watch something or havent seen any marketing and they see that dumb title and go see something else.

I like the idea behind the movie. Harley Queen getting out from underneath Jokers wings and becoming her own person, while also teaming up with some other heroines. That seems like a decent enough premise.



I haven't seen the movie but it all just seems so on the nose. How many times does Harley remind you that she's crazy throughout the movie?

She didn't even have a fricking character arc

In fact, Deadshot is the only character with any sort of arc at all
