  • Cast: Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ewan McGregor, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Chris Messina, Rosie Perez, Ella Jay Basco
  • UK release: 7 February 2020

Harley Quinn (Robbie), having broken up with the Joker, finds herself the target of old enemies. The script could have used a few more comic putdowns, but the old-school action is solid, the setting is proudly the gutter and Robbie’s brilliant, ebullient performance as the mischievous Harley ensures a consistent sense of mischief. Top-tier comic book stuff.
