| " Organized Chaos " ..... { - But With - } : Fresh Directors , Fresh Feel , Fresh Faces , Fresh Story , & A { Very 💣 💥❗} Fresh New Twist .
A { - micro - } review . ___________________________________________________

Caution 🚸 ✋ : This Is A " Profoundly Profane " Film . { Puh Lease❗❗} do not take Anything Or Anyone even vaguely ...Resembling... a { - Minor - } human being to this movie. It is Very Clearly geared towards Adults, and Adults .....{ Alone } . ___________________________________________________

OK then, having gotten that ( - Very ⭐ - ) crucial 'little' detail out of the way, let's get started. The plain truth of the matter is, that I set out to watch "Birds Of Prey" , got held up in some seriously unexpected, mad, traffic ; and ended up having to settle for "Bad Boys III", instead. As you've no doubt gathered by now, I'd not been much of a stickler for said franchise, prior to this . But, being the { - Die Hard - } " Fun Lovin' 😎 📽 Film-Junkie " that I've ( pretty much - Always ) been, I found myself quietly leaping at the opportunity to ' unravel ' the mystery behind this Film's "Pleasantly Surprising" 7.3 🌠 IMDb Audience-score { given that - ( seemingly ) - far better films have done 'stunningly' worse..... with the very same crowd ( - broadly speaking - ) } .

And here's what I found. It's no Oscar contender, that's for damn sure. However, it is { - Undeniably - } spearheaded by some 'Seriously Strong' Performances ( And Joe Pantoliano 🔥 , Kate Del Castillo & Jacob Scipio jump to mind - Immediately- when I say that ).... & some "Dangerously" Potent & - Capable - Eye Candy ( in the form of Paola Nuñez And Vanessa Hudgens' Miami Cops..... from a - Very Refreshingly - less 'Gung-Ho' special forces mini division known, rather ironically, as "A.m.m.o" ). Indeed, the film is borne of a Thoroughly { - Curious - } " Profane, Dramatic, Unpredictable, & - of course - Comedic 🥂 🤣 🤣 'Cocktail' " of : 1. Massive Action Scenes , 2. Truly " Fresh " Storytelling , 3. Pure Chaos ; & Yes... { - even - } 4. A Degree Of Spirituality, as well {❗} .

So Much So, that it indeed leaves you believing that Hollywood "Can Actually" ( - At Times, Atleast - ) be comfortable with being seen to be 'genuinely' attempting to do it's - ' Very Own ' - fair share of " Soul-Searching " - { Within The Context Of The Film Itself } - resulting in the ( " Credible " ) infusion of Powerful Messages of Friendship, Hope { - & Even - } " Redemption 😇 " . . . . . into some of its ( Major ) 'Mindless-Fun Type' Action-Blockbuster Offerings.

My Summation : " I Hadn't Laughed So Hard Since The Lighter Moments In 'JoJo Rabbit' . { - Nor - } Did I Necessarily Find Martin Lawrence 'Unbearable' . This Movie { - Does - } Then , All Said And Done , Get A Generous , Exuberant Full Score From Me 👊❗" .
