Much Ado is "the first five-star movie of the summer". That is according to critic Chris Tookey of the Daily Mail. There are also good reviews from The Scotsman, Empire and Den of Geek.

On a side note I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before but Joss will be on Kermode and Mayo's Film Review this Friday to talk about Much Ado.

A lovely review!
I like the way the article/review links the play to other Joss work:
It even underpins some entertainments outside the genre, from Hitchcock’s thriller The 39 Steps, with an apparently incompatible man and woman literally manacled together until they fall for each other, through to Joss Whedon’s horror series, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, in which the tough heroine gradually succumbs to the much-maligned anti-hero.

Later on, too, he suggests Beatrice is a template for Ripley and Buffy. Beatrice kills a lot fewer monsters, though.
oh, but give Beatrice Slayer powers... then, watch out. I would not put it past her to go to town on those monsters.
