Does AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Live Up To the Hype? (SPOILER-FREE)

We have seen Avengers: Infinity War, and we can’t wait to tell you all about it. But Thanos demands our silence, so this post will be spoiler free. Fan anticipation is at an all-time high, and our reviewer Drew McWeeny likens it to one of the greatest sequels ever made. Infinity War is also certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, but it hasn’t quite hit the critical highs of Black Panther. However, the real question on everyone’s mind is whether Infinity War can possibly live up to the hype and massive fan expectations after ten years of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. Today’s Nerdist News is going cosmic to render a verdict.

Join guest host Dapper Dan Casey as he runs down the early reviews from prominent geek outlets across the web. “Emotionally, narratively, visually, Avengers: Infinity War [is] a very impressive piece of entertainment and storytelling,” said io9. Somehow, it left me exhausted and excited at the same time.” CinemaBlend chimed in by praising Thanos as “one of the most terrifying and fascinating villains in modern blockbuster filmmaking.”

However, not every critic felt that Infinity War delivered a singular movie experience. Slash Film and Us Weekly argued that the film was difficult to judge without seeing the conclusion, and that it lacks closure. But the vast majority of the reviews have expressed admiration for what Marvel and the Russo brothers have managed to achieve. You’ll be able to decide for yourself tomorrow!
