The embargo is up on 'Birds of Prey' so reviews for the superhero flick are all over the place now.

To give it its full title, 'Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)' reviews are pretty positive overall. At the time of writing, it holds a 90% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. movie reviewer Deirdre Molumby gave the film 4 out of 5 stars in her review. She describes it as "an explosion of neon and glitter, jam-packed with kick ass action that truly is fantabulous."

The consensus with critics generally is that the Harley Quinn outing wasn't what they expected.

The flick sees Harley, now split up from Joker, team up with Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez) and Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) to save a young girl named Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) from bad guy Black Mask (Ewan McGregor).

Critics have noted the uneven nature of the movie and some expressed disappointment. It would seem that if you don't set your expectations high, you're more likely to enjoy it.

Here's what the critics had to say:

'Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)' hits Irish cinemas this Friday, 7 February.
