A twisted tale told by Harley Quinn herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham?s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya?s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome has no choice but to team up to take Roman down.

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.

Not bad, but not great. Something wasn't right about this as a DC movie -- the tone wasn't quite 100% there, something in the chemistry between the writing/directing/something didn't quite nail it .... not sure. It was as though this was a TV level production that got produced as a movie. I'm glad I saw it, but out of the DC/Marvel films .... this is one on a short list that I won't be watching again. In a nutshell, my review is "Meh." But don't take it from me ... take it from our library and library users .... note that the library system as "Total Copies: 53" and "Available: 38" -- if it was so great, there'd be a waiting list -- probably we could unload at least 35 copies AKA more than 1/2 of this inventory.

This was a disappointment because in her generosity Ms. Robbie highjacked a movie that should have been centered on her character and her character alone. The majority of actresses involved are all capable enough but they all deserve their own movie. This should have been about Harley Quinn and Harley Quinn only as Ms. Robbie, IMO, has incredible on-screen charisma. I don't think we'll be seeing a sequel but a spinoff? Who knows?

It's a good bad movie.
Deserves the R16 rating.
Fast paced and silly and violent.

This film carries some excellent set design and cinematography, and that's about it. The storyline is so predictable it's a joke and not the funny kind. Props to Margot Robbie for doing her best crazy to try and save this snoozefest. There are at least two more sequels slated for Harley which shows you just how empty Hollywood is of new and fresh ideas. Can we move on from the comic book adaptations already??? Please!!!!

I loved it! I loved the action, humour, the light hearted plot line. It all blended in very nicely together and made an entertaining movie.

The only thing they left out was the captions, BAM, POW, etc from the 60's Batman TV show. Very disappointed, but glad I didn't pay to see it.

Much better movie then the first one. I don't know why the movie stresses the Birds of Prey though as they are maybe 5% of the movie?

Removing the Joker from this film saved it from falling under his shadow again. Like a bird, the film can spread its wings and soar confidently. Shame it feels lackluster anyway.

It's so bad that it's good. Nothing more needs to be said about it.

Here is Harley Quinn's self intro in the beginning, P1 of 3:

They say, if you wanna tell a story right, you gotta start at the beginning. ... This is me, Harleen Quinzel. When I was a kid, my dad traded me for a six-pack of beer. But however many times he tried to ditch me... Daddy! I kept coming back. Eventually, he found me a new home. The good sisters of St. Bernadette's taught me a lot. But I was never an establishment kinda gal. All things considered, I did good. I even went to college. Got my PhD. Had my heart broken once or twice.

Harley Quinn's self intro in the beginning, P2 of 3:

Finding love, it's not easy. So I threw myself into my work, became a psychiatrist. That's when I met him. Mr. J. My Joker. I fell hard. Like out of a plane without a parachute, right in your dumb fucking face kinda hard. I lost all sense of who I was. I only had eyes for Puddin'. We all know the saying, "Behind every successful man there's a badass broad." Well, that was me. I was the brains behind some of Mr. J's greatest stunts. Not that he let anyone know it. Puddin'? I guess all good things have to come to an end. So... we broke up.

Harley Quinn's self intro in the beginning, P3 of 3:

I handled it real mature. But Mr. J was super broke up about it. I got an amazing new place that was all mine. It gave me the space to really reflect on the mistakes of my past. I had to find a new identity. A new me. It wasn't easy. But after a while, I even opened myself up to the possibility of new love. Hi. Hello, nice baby. Here's the thing about new love... I take payment-in-kind. you have to feed it. Soon enough, I was back on my feet. Ready to move on, to make new friends. She means fucking business! ... She has taken a whip from the pivot, catapulted to the high side! Yeah! Come on! It was time for Gotham to meet the new Harley Quinn, so I really put myself out there. Ride that pole like you ride your man!
