Didn't see a thread but comes out Friday.
So far a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes w/ 58 reviews. Very surprised.

It’s a pretty decent flick that’s going to suffer because of:

A) no big name stars
B) no big name characters
C) an all female cast
D) “Suicide Squad” backlash (a la “Solo” after “TFA”/“TLJ”)

Ewan McGregor is the bad guy. He is a big name.

Did they advertise him? I saw a couple commercials, but until this thread had no idea he was in this.

I had the same reaction. Also, I was disappointed in the fight scenes. Some of it was cool but they had plenty of that 'watch this 90 pound girl beat the shit out of this 250 pound muscleman because grrrlpower' junk.

He was actually talking too much.

Trying to save shitty movies by pissing off half your audience continues to be tried, but it's not usually a smart move.

And, now, they're changing the movie's title in the middle of its run.

They shoulda called it "Wait for Netflix" because that's what everyone immediately thought when they heard about it.

It's suffering because...

It couldn't maintain the quirky/cutesy energy and incorporate it properly into the story

The fight scenes were uneven and did not take full advantage of Robbie's considerable physical talents

Mood and style was not balanced with enough plot and character development

The group was introduced and brought together clumsily

The narration by Harley Quinn was overdone and it was cheaply used to patch over weaknesses in storytelling

But other than that....a good flick?

All I know is Margot Robbie is the hottest woman on the planet now that Olivia Wilde is my age.

Think that was to shorten the name to make it easier to order Tix online. The actual movie title hasn't changed

Ha. Good point. I guess what I'm trying to say is I don't like when chicks get old as much as when they are 21-29.
