A lot of fans and critics were skeptical with the all-female led film especially after 2016's Suicide Squad failed to meet expectations. But now, it looks like the folks over at DC have cracked the code with the Margot Robbie-starrer.
According to critics, the Cathy Yan-directed film, for the most part is a fun comic book flick that lives up to its R-rating—yup, expect some violence and a load of profanity!
Others say it's their favorite DC film to date. They also praised the performances of Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Huntress) and Ewan McGregor (Black Mask). See some of the first reactions below:
Just saw #BirdsofPrey and am happy to report that it's my favorite modern DC movie yet. Like Shazam, it carves its own path with totally unique aesthetic, action, and tone. Margot, Ewan and all the rest are 100% fantabulous. Why aren't there more roller skate action scenes?? pic.twitter.com/BDipKiB0qU— Mike Rougeau (@RogueCheddar) January 29, 2020
#BirdsofPrey is a ridiculous and rad superhero film. The fight scenes are phenomenal and the villains are delicious. It shouldn't have taken this long to get the Birds of Prey on film but it was a lot of fun.— Jill Pantozzi (@JillPantozzi) January 29, 2020
#BirdsofPrey is a totally campy and brutal carnival ride; a colorful, chaotic and cheeky blast. FYC: Ewan MacGregor, Best Supporting Actor.— Katie Walsh (@katiewalshstx) January 29, 2020
#BirdsOfPrey: winning characters, above-average action, and a killer soundtrack hampered by uneven tone and pacing. The girls at their best together, and they're not together enough. Mary Elizabeth Winstead's Huntress is the not-so-secret MVP. 💕— Angie J. Han (@ajhan) January 29, 2020
Damn #BirdsofPrey delivers! It's a glittery hard action comedy that has the best choreographed fight sequences I've seen in a superhero movie. It also features my fave comic book film needle drop ever. ✨💎✨ pic.twitter.com/s5UcYDbCNv— Rosie Rumpleteaser Knight (@RosieMarx) January 29, 2020
#BirdsofPrey is an absolute blast & undeniably fun live wire jolt of adrenaline. Delightfully devilish & deliriously wicked,this irreverent, rule-breaking riot delivers a contact high. Cathy Yan is a genius. Robbie, Smollett, Winstead, Perez & Basco are perfection. @birdsofpreywb pic.twitter.com/D72F2D1apY— Courtney Howard (@Lulamaybelle) January 29, 2020
BIRDS OF PREY: Cathy Yan has created a music infused celebration of female badassery. DC continues to take big risks and push boundaries. The perfect Harley Quinn movie. Margot Robbie crushes it. I loved all these ladies & am looking forward to the sequel/spin-off. #BirdsofPrey pic.twitter.com/eRF5FJzahP— Scott Menzel (@TheOtherScottM) January 29, 2020
