Avengers: Infinity War, which might be one of the biggest movies of all time, just had its World Premiere last night in Hollywood. Following the premiere, reactions from critics and fans are coming in.

The praise for the Russo brothers directed film seemingly never stopped. And it wasn’t just praise, it was high praise. We have comparisons to the original Star Wars trilogy. Some went so far as to compare the film to The Empire Strikes Back.

Jeremy Conrad wrote, “If you don’t see #InfinityWar in theaters, you’re going to miss something people will be talking about for generations like the Original Star Wars trilogy or LOTR. It’s seriously going to be: Legendary.”

He wasn’t the only one with a Star Wars comparison. Peter Sciretta wrote, “#InfinityWar is everything you want, nothing you expect. It’s funny, surprising, dark, filled with delightful interplay between characters never seen on screen before. I know many filmmakers say they are trying to make a sequel in the vein of Empire Strikes Back, this succeeds.”

Perri Nemiroff added, “After 10 years of investment in this series & these characters, boy does #AvengersInfinityWar knock you on your ass. Humor, sky high stakes & a truly overwhelming amount of emotion in it. Russos did a great job spreading screen time for the ensemble but my MVPs – The Guardians.”

Kevin Smith who recently suffered a heart attack was able to make it to the premiere and he had glowing praise for the film.

“I am overwhelmed. The movie is epic beyond compare. LOVED it. My legs are still shaking. It’s a gigantic @Marvel masterpiece. So much to say but I’ll stay Silent Bob til Monday so as not to slip in spoilers. Suffice to say it’s gonna be a looooong year until @Avengers 4…”

Kevin Smith wasn’t the only who was looking forward to Avengers 4.

Miles Marshall Lewis said the movie will take you back to your childhood.

Tasha Robinson compared the film to Captain America: Civil War, which the Russo brothers also directed.

ComicBook Debate described the film as “the most thrilling, action-packed film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

While the majority praised the film Angie J. Han of Mashable thought the movie was a step down from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and Black Panther.

Avengers: Infinity War comes to theaters on April 27, 2018.
