She is positively infectious in the candy-colored chaos she creates. But Robbie gets great help from a diverse and talented array of co-stars, including Jurnee Smollett-Bell , displaying serious action chops in the fierce, physical role of songstress Black Canary. These are ladies who will happily offer each other a hair tie before heading into battle together. This seems sort of inevitable when going through the motions of setting up new characters within a burgeoning franchise, but the downshift feels jarring compared to the fast-paced section that preceded it. And the film is a consistent visual treat. And McGregor parades about in aviators, jewel-toned velvet blazers and a collection of monogrammed gloves to protect his hands from all the dirty work he does. He seems to be having a ball. Some of the song choices are a little painfully on the nose, though. But Yan was wise to let the fight scenes play out rather than providing a false sense of energy by overly editing them, allowing us to appreciate all the athleticism and artistry the choreography demands.

Look back at our favorite moments throughout the year, from award shows to up-close shots of celebrities. See the gallery. A twisted tale told by Harley Quinn herself, when Gotham's most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya's paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down. If you are not driven by the imperative need of understanding precisely what is happening in your movie, you might enjoy this psychedelic mix of disjointed cool visuals, great music, firecrackers, fragments of good acting
