“Birds of Prey” had its world premiere in London on Wednesday night and attendees have started to weigh in with their reactions on social media.

So what did they think of DC’s first ensemble female superhero movie? The reactions are positive with critic Courtney Howard calling the film “Delightfully devilish & deliriously wicked,this irreverent, rule-breaking riot delivers a contact high.”

Film critic Alisha Grauso said the film is “like if John Wick were run through a crazy funhouse filter and stuffed full of glitter and f-bombs.”

Forbes’ Scott Mendelson said “it’s a bonkers bananas crime comedy and a genuine party movie.”

Here are more reactions:

In “Birds of Prey,” Margot Robbie once again plays former Joker-accomplice Harley Quinn, now teaming up with Black Canary (Jurnee Smollet-Bell), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez) to stop the villain Black Mask (Ewan McGregor) before he can have Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) murdered.

Christina Hodson wrote the “Birds of Prey” spinoff for Warner Bros. and DC Films based on the “Birds of Prey” comics by Chuck Dixon, Jordan B. Gorfinkel and Greg Land.

“Birds of Prey” is produced by Kroll & Co Entertainment’s Sue Kroll and Clubhouse Pictures’ Bryan Unkeless, as well as Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment.

The film hits theaters Feb. 7.
