      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      While it's a fun and well-paced contribution to the DC franchise, Birds of Prey is weighed down by complex narratives and hokey performances.

      Previous Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic Loaded with atmosphere, most of it gloomy. Summons the inner geek. Feb 10, 2021 Full Review Catherine Dawson March Globe and Mail It's quirky and will draw comic-book lovers not upset by this perversion of the Batman legend. Mar 11, 2020 Full Review Tim Goodman San Francisco Chronicle It's mindless fun, has all the escapist qualities certain people may be looking for and, even if it isn't the most solidly performed hour you've ever seen, will undoubtedly develop a little cult following. 3/4 Jan 22, 2020 Full Review Jeff Simon Buffalo News "Birds of Prey" is nothing more than garden variety counter-programming for Wednesday nights. Jan 22, 2020 Full Review Kevin Carr Film School Rejects It's chock full of corny dialogue and some pretty weak plot devices. C Jan 22, 2020 Full Review Tom Jicha South Florida Sun-Sentinel The three appealing young leads attack their roles with the relish their characters exhibit roughing up the heavies.

      Previous Audience Member under rated short lived show. with a few seasons it would have been even better than smallville or even have cross episodes. 100 times better the best episodes of the current CW DC shows. not sure how supergirl lasts 6 seasons beeing total garbage and this is discarded on the first 13 episodes. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Just a melted box of crayons trying to be a good movie but fails miserably! Worst DC movie yet! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Really bad acting, bad writing, bad dialogue, and bad choreography. I loved it! Just kidding. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review antonis k Highly Underrated!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Good plot and interesting characters. Always fun to see Harley Quinn on screen. The biggest problem is the over reliance on CGI Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Next Post a review
