Avengers: Infinity War non-spoiler thoughts from critics
Here are a few:
Holy Hell. Avengers: Infinity War is the real deal. Was left breathless sitting in the theater. Real consequences, stunning moments, awesome character interaction, and some BIG and often devastating surprises.

After 10 years of investment in this series and these characters, boy does Avengers: Infinity War knock you on your ass.

Wow. Just…WOW! I was NOT expecting THIS! What a ballsy movie! Blown away! See this NOW! Do not get spoiled! Can’t believe what I just saw!!!!”
– Jenna Busch, Legion of Leia
Avengers: Infinity War is next level bonkers. One of the single most emotional, intense, and visceral experiences of my life. Marvel or otherwise.
– Conner Schwerdtfeger, CinemaBlend
Avengers: Infinity War puts all the stakes on the table. It could be the Empire Strikes Backof superhero films.– Clayton Davis, Awards Circuit
There are actual stakes this time around. Kevin Feige is not f—ing around with this one.– Nigel M. Smith, Guardian
Puts it all on the table and wipes it off. Stress-inducing, full of dread, darker than usual… Blockbuster noise? Yes, but with emotional stakes attached.– Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist
I liked it a lot, and there’s so much that works, but it definitely is ‘Part 1.’– Terri Schwartz, IGN
Thanos is terrifying and amazing.– Eric Eisenberg, CinemaBlend
Thanos just dethroned Killmonger as the champion of villains.– Kristian Harloff, Schmoes Know
Thanos is a good, sad villain.– Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
By MCU standards, Thanos is a reasonably compelling antagonist. He’s not going to singlehandedly change views on Marvel’s villain problem, but for yet another alien with a destroy-ey McGuffin, he’s not bad.– Tasha Robinson, The Verge
Avengers Infinity War is a lot.– Gregory Ellwood, The Playlist
