Gillian Kaney’s review published on Letterboxd:
I absolutely loved it and it is definitely my favourite DC film by far.
James Gunn's humour and visual style just really does it for me.
I found it to be proper laugh out loud funny more times than I can count but I also found it to be poignant, sweet, shocking, exciting and disgusting. Great combination.
Even though it was annoying that a lot of the best moments were in the trailer there were still a lot of things that happened that I did not see coming!
I bloody loved the characters so much! Especially Poka-Dot Man, King Shark and Sebastian. It also doesn't hurt that a lot of the cast are gorgeous. ❤
Great soundtrack too but Gunn has lead me to just expect that now.
My only grumble was that I felt some scenes dragged on a little too long.
So overall, I was actually crying with laughter, teary with emotion and gasping with shock. So far this is my favourite 2021 film I've seen so far (but to be fair I haven't seem that many). I think I'll definitely need to go and see this again before it leaves the cinema, I loved it that much!
