The new Harley Quinn movie is soaring high in ratings

Recently the most popular film that has been released lately has been Harley Quinn:Birds of Prey. It follows Harley Quinn after having a big break up with the Joker and all of the sudden everyone in the city is coming after her. Susceptible to danger but the most prominent danger is the very narcissistic crime boss Black Mask and his sidekick, Victor Zsasz.

Harley Quinn was played by Margot Robbie, who did an absolutely fantastic job at it. She was able to really portray this crazy character and all her emotions. The other casting members also did a mind blowing job, Mary Elizabeth Winstead played Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Ewan McGregor as the villain Black Mask, and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya. What I really liked about this movie is the way it displays the character past and trauma and how it shaped the these beloved characters now and how they got over it as some of the things they show are very real things that are constantly happening in the real world.

With all the blood and action scenes this movie is definitely not for the younger audience, also considering some of the jokes but something the older audience can appreciate is the directing. The director Cathy Yan was truly able to give this movie the trigger happy and colorful feel it really needed. The action stunts were also amazing as it was very well choreographed and presented so it was very entertaining and great to watch.

I also think that everyone else who watches will find the story, acting, directing, and all the action packed scenes very entertaining. I recommend for you all to watch this funny and creative movie and to have fun doing it.
