A little dramatic but okay lolz. I will say in a world dominated by superhero movies getting shoved down our gullets, this one was refreshing. It had some cute -if not forced- edge to it, and contained some enjoyable comic book vibes. The introductions of the cast are thrown at us pretty quickly, to the point to where you kind of want to just give up on recalling who is who and just remember the key characters that we’re “supposed” to know- eye roll- with Harley Quinn and the Joker. Now, hear me out when I report I enjoyed this movie over all. However, I felt like I was watching a movie within a movie re: the love connection with the Joker and Harley Quinn. Jared Leto and Margot Robbie did great jobs; America seems to be getting moist panties a little too much for me, but for what they portrayed, I was satisfied. It just seemed as if their relationship was an excuse to put a revived characterization of the Joker for a potential excuse for a Joker movie spinoff later down the line.
The plot of this movie seemed pretty constricted when there was more potential. The action was fairly consistent and well-paced, but the fight scenes for me were too jumbled, haphazard, and riddled with smoke and mirrors for me to really enjoy it. Pardon the necessary comparison to a Marvel film, but movies like The Avengers and Captain America: Civil War seem to offer fight scenes were the action is clear and calculated to where it is more appreciated. In this DC movie, though, the camera seems for too zoomed in, and the lens seems to be darkened or too hazy. I’m being a naggy bitch, but if you’re going to give me action, let me see it, assholes.
