Some very lucky people have had the chance to watch the upcoming Birds of Prey movie.
This film stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn who’s back playing the role after her impressive turn in Suicide Squad.
I’ve said it time and time again, Robbie’s performance was the best thing about that film.
Well, Warner Bros. Pictures liked her so much in the movie, that they listened to her idea of making a female-led DC Comics movie.
This was how Birds of Prey came to be, and the first reactions are in, and they’re pretty positive.
A lot of critics I really respect, the likes of Clarisse Loughrey, Millicent Thomas and Scott Mendelson took to Twitter to reveal what they thought of the film.
All of the critics mentioned above really enjoyed the movie.
Some critics even claimed that Birds of Prey was the best DCEU movie yet.
Birds of Prey is the best DCEU movie yet
Here’s what these critics had to say about Birds of Prey.
#BirdsofPrey is delightfully unassuming and unconcerned with its place in a larger context. It's a bonkers bananas crime comedy and a genuine party movie. Everyone is having a blast but Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays Huntress like a supporting character from THE TICK. It rocks. pic.twitter.com/7MRMKkZ0oi

Cathy Yan’s #BIRDSOFPREY is a criminally fun celebration of sisterhood, with some of my favourite fight scenes in recent memory. I was grinning from ear to ear the entire thing; making a pub debut with my review soon! pic.twitter.com/QBEgyf6oan

#BirdsOfPrey has terrific action, humor & some of the more memorable characters we’ve seen in a DC movie, but the biggest highlight is Margot Robbie. She is fantabulous as Harley, while also proving that sometimes our most valued relationships are the ones we have w/ good food pic.twitter.com/EDQ3sr5JtL

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

There are all very positive reviews and it all has me really pumped to see the film for myself.
Birds of Prey, or to use its full title, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), was directed by Cathy Yan.
was working with a budget of $97.1 million and a script by Christina Hodson.
As well as Robbie, the film stars the likes of Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Rosie Perez.
Other stars include Chris Messina, Ella Jay Basco, Ali Wong, and Ewan McGregor.
Now that’s what I call a cast right there.
What do you make of this? Are you now looking forward to watching Birds of Prey?
