Ghostbusters hits cinemas today (in the UK at least) and thanks to the premiere and various preview screenings, a fair few fans have already seen it. So, were the haters right or not? Surprise, surprise, it doesn't looks like it. 

Our full review is up now, but from the initial reactions on Twitter you can see that most people agree that Paul Feig's new movie is funny, action-packed, and well-deserving of praise. Well done guys! 

Of course, this means accusations are already doing the rounds that journalists and others have taken bribes for positive reviews because there's just no way this movie can be good (*sigh*). 

Read on for some of the best reactions to the new Ghostbusters movie and check out our review for a deeper look at Paul Feig's 'energetic, unapologetic' reboot.

Directed by Paul Feig and starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth, Ghostbusters opens in the UK today and in the US on July 15, 2016.
