The big takeaway? Folks who don’t like the Marvel movies aren’t going to suddenly come around on the 19th but big fans will have a LOT to see — and to surprise them. Though some say it’s too much for one movie…
Ch-ch-check out our roundup (below)!

Helen O’Hara, Empire: “It would be hard for any film to live up to the level of sky-high hype that has resulted, and to satisfy the fans of every single one of these characters. Miraculously, this smashes right through your expectations and delivers shock after shock.”
Mark Daniell, Toronto Sun: “…the minute you exit the theatre, you’ll be lining up at the box office to buy another ticket. It’s that good.”
Peter Howell, Toronto Star: “A deeply satisfying tale of pathos and wit that manages to credibly link dozens of characters, multiple narrative threads and innumerable arguments, stretching from the first Iron Man a decade ago to Black Panther mere weeks ago.”
Sara Stewart, New York Post: “All the past decade’s Marvel movies have been heading toward this showdown. Turns out the payoff was worth the wait.”
Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times: “Be sure to stick around, empty popcorn bag in hand, for the post-credits scene, which left me wanting another sequel. Preferably tomorrow.”
Britton Peele, Dallas Morning News: “The explosive action is practically nonstop, breaking only occasionally for jokes and a touch of romance – though without ever breaking its grim, apocalyptic tone.”
Stephanie Zacharek, TIME: “There’s no pacing in Avengers: Infinity War. It’s all sensation and no pulse. Everything is big, all of the time.”
Peter Travers: Rolling Stone: “The Russo brothers have clearly never learned the concept that less is more.”
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle: “There’s just too much of it. A victim of its own success, there are just too many appealing characters here to stuff into one story.”
Sam Adams, Slate: “Sitting through its 2 hours and 30 minutes is like gorging on tapas: You wind up both overstuffed and unsatisfied.”
