Forums - Movies Discussion - Can you redeem "Birds of Prey"

There is nothing to fix. It was a light hearted hard R comic book film similar to Deadpool. How anyone can think it was Suicide Squad tier is beyond me.

Same here. It wasn't a great movie by any means, but I thought it was easily better than Suicide Squad (which I know isn't saying much because that movie is dogshit, but still).

The movies has clear strenghts in action set pieces and coreography and the story being so low stakes only helps it. I dont think theres anything to redeem tbh, if you have issues with the movie then you are gonna ignore its strong aspects no matter what. Personally I think the supporting cast was a bit wasted, but not so much as to ruin the experience. Not amongst the best comic films sure, but so much better than Suicide Squad.



I absolutely loved it. Loved the comedy, acting, colour, music,fights, SFXs. Story was abit generic but overall i would give it a solid 8/10. Best DC universe film ive seen after Shazam. Oh and WW that was good too.

I thought BvsS and suicide squad were terrible.



No. And I love DC comics and at least like most of the movies not called Suicide Squad. It completely baffles me how this film got so many good reviews. I sat there for two hours waiting for it to "get good".
When the main bad guy was defeated, I finally gave up hope.

They say Ewan McGregor was great as Black Mask. I guess that's something but even that fell flat for me. 🤷🏿‍♂️

I watched the movie with very low expectations since I heard a lot of bad comments (and filtered some of the love the movie got). Still the movie didn`t got me, and worse yet I didn`t find a good point on the movie and that is really unfortunate (but yes I think a redeeming fact is that SS is worse).

I thought mcgregor was pretty good.  That’s about the only good thing I can say about it though.  I was expecting more with how well it reviewed... I might have liked it less than suicide squad...  it was bad...



I got 2 redeming facts.

1. Now you know not to watch a movie when political correctness is the reason for it existing.

2. Critics reviews mean less than dog shit.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

That is a way of looking at it. But believe it or not I didn`t had any issues with PC or anything similar in this movie.

I yet to see it. But people keep saying that they got out of their way to make sure every man in this movie is either evil, useless, week or a combination of the 3.
