Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey has faced various issues. Since the launch of the trailer, the movie was believed to be an R rated film. The movie was also criticised to have lack of sex appeal. All these opinions could be simply crowned to the narrow mindedness of our male dominating society. However, there is also another perspective coming in front as a reason for its failure. It says that people need to be entertained, not to be lessened for a hit film.
A bird’s-eye view of Gotham reveals a city that is always on the verge of collapsing. The city is crime-ridden and chaotic, and suffers from an appalling class divide. Its middle class is gone, its police department is self-serving and inept, and its social services are non-existent. Even among the criminal elite, only those with severe delusions or astonishing personal wealth even aspire at comfort and happiness.
The supporters of Bird of Prey definitely seem to have decided that they won’t accept a defeat so soon. There are a number of tweets praising the movie. It is an exact image of what one expects from a movie based on comics. It has action, it has a brilliant cast, it was fun, it has an awesome soundtrack, it has all it needs to have.
The Girl Squad in action might have made the male supremacy a target. Probably that’s the reason which makes accepting a girl as a superhero so hard. The film has challenged the orthodox male superhero idea up to the roots.
