Margot Robbie for the first time turned into a Harlin Kvinzel — former psychotherapist, now a psychopath in a mixed polemical project of David Eyre known as "suicide Squad". The picture was actually controversial. However, in one agreed in almost everything: twenty-six Australian Harley was adorable, and since then, all the fans have been waiting for the return of the actress in your favorite way. What well, she is back, but still not one! Thanks to the "Birds" in the Expanded cinematic universe DC included Black Canary (Gerni Smollett), the Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), Black mask (Ewan McGregor) and Victor Zsasz (Chris Messina).

In connection with the scandal-related Jared Leto rejection of the masses its the Joker, Warner Bros. decided to skip the promised romantic story between Margot and Quinn and the Joker the Summer and go to stage of rupture between the lovers.

It all starts with a cartoon prologue, which apart from the fact that in brief refreshing in memory of for such a bird, this Harley Quinn is a sign that the Director of the movie Kathy Yang remember where the roots grow pretty clown. Harley as we know not debuted in the comics as other enemies of Batman and in the animated series "Batman: the Animated Series" animated so the entry, once again emphasizing the relationship of the character with animation, perfect solution, indeed it is a kind of tribute that no doubt will appeal to fans. In as the narrator of his "amazing" history herself was a miss Quinn, which is experiencing a spat with a man who cheated on her once and for all. About the causes of the disorder the girl say it is not going, such as why you are necessary? What from the point of view of scenario is definitely a mistake. Although the entire numerous confusion can be attributed to the mental illness and emotional instability of the protagonist, such an approach would have on the taste not everyone. Harley is confused in chronology, in the spirit of Deadpool (this comparison was not to avoid) breaks through the "fourth wall", skips all what is happening using your imagination and gives abergravenny subjective version of events. A villain like tries to be in with the audience. She shares his experiences as if hoping to make excuses for your rash actions. She gives us his wounded soul and appears to be natural and real sometimes you forget that watching Kinomax where everything has to be exaggerated and fantastic. But sometimes the film and is more like a teenage drama about the relationship. In"birds of Prey" heroine Margo comes to life. Maybe it works magic low-budget movie (after all, this was first Dedpula, and in the sequel it got lost somewhere) or it is a merit of the most Margo, preferring to be in the spotlight? No idea! But when it comes to battle that out without any doubt a luxury, because they are placed by Chad Stahelski known for his work in John Wick, "comic" nature "birds" wakes up and comes in all its glory. The action scenes are insane and built on the crown for Harley acrobatics. However the full off not only Harley, the other characters also annealed and strongly trucoat at the time of the battle, actively using the environment, break bones, maintaining a degree of violence in high level.

Battles not the only the creators focused on John Wick. Quite simple and a simple plot is somewhat reminiscent of "Parabellum". And why, you should learn from me. The script let and primitive, but interesting through good dialogue and cleverly placed Easter eggs for fans of comics like rollerbal who plays Quinn in free time stuffed beaver. Undoubtedly, the "birds" are suffering from the meager budget, and writer Christina Hodson disguises it all available means, intentionally or accidentally resorting to the technique of "Deadpool". Here, as in the first Tadpole the main characters are experiencing a shortage of weapons and ammunition before the final battle. Only instead of the distraction of the main character, forgetting a bag full of various caliber ammunition in the left the taxi, the fact of the lack of firepower explained a little differently.

Among the heroes in this story Harley easily eclipses all (not surprisingly, remember 2016) rest of the "birds" not more than ordinary Sidiki. Although in fairness I must say that the total background is the Black Canary. Fans should appreciate the history and "insanely cool" vigilante Huntress to unfortunately disappoint. Alas, it turned out one-sided character with the simplest motivation is flashing on screen the beginning, middle, and only towards the end of the join the total party. Renee "good COP" Montoya was entered as a subject of constant jokes over the uselessness of the police, but its purpose, the character performed, but that's Cassandra Cain is definitely annoying.

Much better things to a pair of antagonists. Improvised Roman Sionis Victor Zsasz despite the estate reserve so much screen time impressed. Zsasz turned out intimidating thug, acting as a faithful dog to his beloved master, ready to fulfill any order only to please his fastidious master. At all hard-coded to the main villain of Zsasz a single person, but not an addition to the Mask, it even has its perverted philosophical morality, let and fit in one sentence. Of course, by the time Zsazsa sacrificed for Black mask, which I must admit has turned out that need. Roman Sionis appears to us extremely controversial figure. In this charming coexist pathologically tidy up of disgust slick and ruthless gangster, often running into the bouts of uncontrollable aggression. Have Ewan McGregor turned unpredictable and outrageous character that will be remembered.

If that's not enough, then the"Birds" still very stylish film. That important to it looked through the bleak aesthetics inherent in DC. Frame such as here no marvel ' you will not find, not even attempt. Gotham Kathy Yang let exists one temporary space and in one dimension with the Gotham air and Snider, but here he displayed under different angle with a point of view of the inhabitants of the roofs, and common criminals. The choice of locations and some Noir styling are incredible! A model number car 80s and does brings something Burton.

But that the "Birds" was huge potential, given the rating of R, but it is not has been revealed in the fully for not enough to fuse, it is impossible to remain silent. Tin not enough to go into details are going, but the hyena Harley would be nice to use in the battle gang mask, the most killing two birds with one stone: to equalize the chances of the girls against the army of Sinisa and to cater to lovers of blood.

Conclusion: Cathy Yang, Margot Robbie and other girls gave fans DC bright and an explosive spectacle, which is highly individual actor's work, battle choreography, whimsical style in the spirit of DC comics. It is recommended to look for beauty Margot Robbie in the way brilliant coquette Harley intriguing antagonist Black Mask in the excellent performance of Ewan Macregor and great action.

The inclusion of DC in the superhero race after Marvel looks a bit messy. Mass of announced projects including "untitled project" on  the"Man of steel", on Dadsite, Deathstroke, films about Batgirl the Nightwing, and those which have been announced got the release date: "Wonder woman. 1984", "Batman", "Shazam! 2" and others. All they are shot by different Directors that on the one hand simplifies DC work on the expansion of the universe (if five Directors are working on five different projects, you can't wait until one is about to finish the project will start following), and the allow at least a couple of movies to your handwriting, to acquire their signature style. Not know will be true, but in my opinion — it may have a negative impact on future projects due to the fact that they will be too different, because the same van, Reeves and Jenkins — this is a completely different Directors, not having between his style nothing to do.

Given the fact that after the "justice League" and"suicide Squad" DC decided to review the approach to the production of his films, seems rather odd decision to invite the role of the Director of "birds of Prey" Cathy Yan — the lady is up to now not been known at all. If "birds of Prey: an Amazing story of Harley Quinn" not shoot the rental (and while all this goes), there is a suspicion that Yang is no longer allow to major projects, the more superhero solo.

"Birds of prey" — it's a solo record, as you can see from the names of the Joker's girlfriend — ex Harlin Kvinzel, and now Harley Quinn — crazy, but it is extremely charming to the lover of toxic outfits and baseball bats. A film on time interval follows after the events of "suicide Squad" (unknown how much time passed, but so feel — too much) when Quinn is already parted wild and met on its way Black Canary and the Huntress.

From the very first minute the impression that "birds of Prey" — film Teens to a greater extent for girls. Too much naivety in the behavior of the heroine, Margot Robbie, slagovich too many words in her vocabulary and of course the presence of a teenage girl Cassandra Cain, one of the main characters. As like Kathy Yang decided to remove the girl version of "Shazam!", focusing on women's humor. Was not particularly well, to be honest.

The first part of the film generally evokes mixed feelings — painfully, chaotically and erratically developed in it events. This is partly due to the peculiarities of the behaviors of Harley Quinn, but still very much more mixed, why is that bothers to take the same hero McGregor as a villain in General to understand where he took the role played in Gotham. The constant flashbacks to a few days, hours or minutes ago just complicate the ability to clearly understand what is happening. Welter adds a jumble of characters — same Sionis/Black Mask timeshares in the movie about equally with Victor Zas, although the first is considered to be the main villain.

Plus the introduction of new characters — Canary, Huntress and other happening messy,

"Birds of prey" does not give the impression of a superhero movie in the sense in which used to take the viewer. It is an ordinary Thriller, which Katie Yang tried to do the maximum feministyczne. Usually the villains, similar to that played by McGregor is close to him bloodthirsty lady to the end remained faithful to his master. In"birds of Prey" women contrasted to men in the full — among the villains there any women that already odd, because given the nature of womanhood, can be to assume that women killersha would be much more dangerous than the crowd of slow-witted men, experienced "birds of Prey".

The stupidity of the males, by the way, screaming in all the fighting scenes put to put it mildly not much. It feels like the viewer back in 90-e years, when Paul W. P. Anderson filmed the first part of "Mortal Kombat". In any fights beat waiting until they will hit, reacting to a split second later after the impact. The bumps themselves are not create the impression of a real — they look like the usual butting, not able to deal damage, making any dogfight looks punning and ridiculous. This regards sequence — like the episode in the police station. With the point of view of entertainment it beautiful and bright, but on the part of the logic is losing at all fronts, for submit a COP without a cannon or at least Shocker. — very difficult (especially in this crime city as the Gotham).

That caught eyes — is the uncertainty directed at the part of what should be Gotham in her understanding. Street, and shooting from above give us the idea of how about the usual metropolis — about that showed Nolan in"the Dark knight". But some of the scenes send the viewer to the fact surreal and phantasmagorical Gotham, which was Joel Schumacher and Tim Burton. prichudlivye form rides with a sinister Gothic pier with statues, and also not fit in urban architecture plant chemicals — all do not corresponds the Gotham that the Director showed you earlier. It could write on that Yan shows Gotham as the chameleon — day it one and night another. But in and the thing that throughout the film there is night city with a bird's eye — and is quite a normal city!

Judging by the content Director of the times over and over was a deadlock scenario — at least confirms a scene with Black Canary, what happened closer to end to put it mildly fell down in surprise. According to the other is not to explain, after all, "birds of Prey" in one second of the action movie with superheroes and anti-heroes turned into a fantastic movie (when you watch the movie, you will understand about what episode is it).

We have to admit that until DC turns to alternate good designs and not really. "Birds of prey" — from the second list. Of the positive, you can celebrate the game, Margot Robbie, yeah and in some scenes the game to call it hard... More antics.

However, to watch You. Your opinion is not impose.

Nice view.

Oh, Harley Quinn! She went to its independence on 27 comic book years. She was a litter of psychopath and constantly received from him, but continued to love. It drew in a closed costume of harlequin, but in 2011, stripped and increased breast. And here after all this time, she has finally collected his women's team in the Directors took the woman, in the writers took the woman, in the soundtrack took only singers and gave it — super any there another zakolebalsya a story that is so boring that even a hyena at the nickname Bruce looks spectacular.

I pulled away from all these jokes and the noise around FEM movement. But the film is just not gave me a chance to please. Do you know how many good men in the film? Zero! Even the main villain behaves pretentiously and makes eyes to his hand to the killer. I really not talking about the rest of the male meat.

But it's not so bad. The main trouble is that Harley Quinn is annoying. Margot Robbie is so we were trying to play your character, that came ham and most annoying teenager, such a mixture of a young Jim Carrey and Deadpool: always making faces, too, there is too clipped in space of place jokes, out of place saying something.

Over the last that you can hold — this is a supremely better. He is zero. I even the "Ghost six" set of 4 points for cool chase at the beginning and spectacular stunts with magnets. But in "birds of Prey" you this is not will give.

All fights consist of repetitive application of shock different objects at the heads of the men, with the obligatory coup in 360 degrees of meat in the air. Yes in General, any blow is accompanied by a coup. Apparently, rejissery of the principle took care of men in the staging of the fights and picked up some cheap tricks of the VHS militants category B. And then another thought: "Oh, and let the pellets will explode like the confetti!!!", and then: "Oh, and let the guy lights beard as poplar fluff!!!"... However, in the final one was the chase, but it is possible only to drink clinking glasses.

Do not forget, I recommend, even sworn fans of Margot Robbie. Better to watch "Tonya against all".
