I was looked forward a lot to seeing this movie, and although it’s good, it just wasn’t quite as good as I had anticipated it would be. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still good and gets a solid 4 Icees. I guess I was just hoping for more.
Like many people who watched Suicide Squad, I was thrilled when it was announced the Margot Robbie would be getting her own Harley Quinn movie. I was looking for the same confident, snarky, kick-butt woman that we saw in the Squad. Although Margot still gave a great performance, her character was more of someone that was broken and although I understand that point of view, to me it left the character lacking.
That aside, there is a lot that is good about this film. The fight scenes were extremely well choreographed. The flow of the movie was scattered (much like Harley’s mind). The movie presented a strong girl power theme that I think is good to see in movies. I think the same could have been done without making the men in the movie to be idiotic cartoon-like imbeciles. I get that it’s a comic book movie but still… really?
If you want to watch women kick some serious butt, this is the movie to see! Please know that this movie more than earns its R-rating with a lot of f-bombs and other strong language and very graphic violence. If that doesn’t bother you, then you’ll be fine.
There is something after the credits, but it really isn’t worth sticking around for. If you want to know what it is, simply email me using the Contact link and I’ll be happy to tell you.
