It's a weird thing this, I liked it in parts but I'm so tired of the "Whedon approach" (to stories, not how he physically approaches women according to reports). Not every emotional scene needs a daft "witty" buffy-esque exchange shoehorned into it. There are other tropes too, like
that one in particular irking me. Not 'cause I gave a shit about the character, but just because it's the kind of thing I've seen so many times before.
That stuff also clashed pretty badly with the
too, which felt like it was written by someone else entirely.
Oh and also, yeah, okay,
like it was clearly leading up to?
Anyway, yes, I'm not tearing it apart, I did enjoy it. The rat was best character though. Idris won me over after three years of Sky Go adverts being shoved through my brain whenever visiting family, and Cena was surprisingly good in both comedy and serious parts. Harley as always is great but I think it's time to make her less ditzy now. Said it before, I'll say it again: Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman is retroactively the best Harley adaptation.
BTW what's the point of Verhoevenning all the gore if you're just gonna CGI it?
