The first wave of reactions are in for Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), and so far, the latest addition to the DCEU mostly elicited excitement and positivity! It looks like the DCEU’s winning streak post Wonder Woman/Aquaman/Shazam! continues.

First BIRDS OF PREY Reactions Offer High Praise For Harley Quinn_1

We’ve collected a sampling of opinions below from viewers lucky enough to see the first big screen version of one of DC Comics’s longest running kick-ass superheroine team-ups.

First and foremost, anything featuring Harley should be fun. Thankfully, it looks like this film is.

F-bombs and glitter? What more do we need??

While the ladies themselves are getting heaps of praise, people seem to love Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask as well.

Best bat fight since the Raid 2?Β High praise indeed.

Angie Han’s praise is slightly more muted for the film, but she singles out Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s performance as Huntress.

To Davis, Margot Robbie was perhaps born to play Harley Quinn, and great to see her shine in a vehicle for the character that people think is actually good.

“Human Looney Toon” [sic] is an apt description of Harley, and apparently they nailed that aspect of the character.

Someone’s already clamoring for a sequel.

Better late than never…

Other reactions suggest the film is uneven, but still a blast to watch.

For a comic book movie, this is the kind of realism that excites us.

Not sure Harley would appreciate her mind being called “jumbled,” but we’re sure she’ll take praise however it comes to her.

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) hits theaters on February 7th.
