Birds Of Prey: Harley Quinn Movie's First Reactions Are Here

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) is in theaters on February 7.


It won't be in theaters until this Friday, February 7, but the first social media reactions to Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) have arrived, and they sound very promising. This is the first DC film since 2019's Shazam, which was well-received, and it seems like Warner Bros. may have another winner on its hands, although full Birds of Prey reviews have not yet arrived. [Update: Expanding on these initial reactions, our Birds of Prey review is now live. For a broader look, you can also check out our Birds of Prey review roundup.]

"Just saw [Birds of Prey] and am happy to report that it's my favorite modern DC movie yet," GameSpot's own Michael Rougeau said in a tweet. Like Shazam, it carves its own path with totally unique aesthetic, action, and tone. Margot, Ewan, and all the rest are 100% fantabulous."

Now Playing: Birds Of Prey - First Look

GameSpot's Meg Downey echoed his thoughts, tweeting, "So [Birds of Prey] was an absolute blast. Harley feels exactly like the human Looney Toon she ought to be, Black Mask is a scene-stealer; Dinah, Helena, Cass, and Renee all rule. This was everything I want from DC movies and then some."
