“I was not prepared for the range of emotions that #Endgame put me through.”
Avengers: Endgame had its world premiere in Los Angeles on Monday, April 22nd.
Which means, yes, human beings have finally seen the movie event of the year. And there are Twitter reactions (and spoilers) floating around the Internet.
The overall consensus: the movie is good. Really good in fact. And at three hours the movie is an epic, emotionally grueling experience. Here are what critics who went to the screening are saying about the movie:

I was not prepared for the range of emotions that #Endgame put me through, from utter despair to pure elation. I laughed, I cried, I wished Tony Stark was my dad.

Just watched Avengers: Endgame. I don’t believe hyperbole is possible for this movie. It is the ultimate Marvel movie in every way possible and words cannot describe how epic it is. And yes, Hawkeye is a rockstar.

Chris Evans’ review of #AvengersEndgame: “I cried like six times.”

#AvengerEndgame is an immensely satisfying payoff, not just to Infinity War but to all the films that came before. This is why the MCU. (And I say this as someone who was not especially enamored of Infinity War, FWIW.) ♥️💙💜

#AvengersEndgame is A LOT. Too much at times. But wow the payoff is huge. Left me proud to have invested over a decade in a franchise that delivers an inspiring exploration of what it means to be family & a hero. (Endgame also now has one of my favorite shots in the entire MCU.)

#AvengersEndgame is a masterful epic – a true culmination of 22 films that not only concludes the story, but expands upon it. You’ll learn more about the other movies while this one unfolds. If Infinity War is the brawn, Endgame is the brains. And wow, what an ending! pic.twitter.com/94ttBUQKJ0

ENDGAME > INFINITY WAR

Wow. #AvengersEndgame is staggering. It’s surprising in ways I never saw coming and satisfying in ways I didn’t realize I needed. It’s kind of the ultimate gift to fans of the MCU. It’s very long and has a few hiccups, but is everything you’re hoping for and more. pic.twitter.com/RO97kw9fs5

Avengers Endgame: A mediocre first 2 hours that’s equal parts cool moments and problematic moments that ends with a final hour that’s an absolute magnificent geek wet dream. Need to see it again (tomorrow) to solidify my thoughts.

#AvengersEndgame just ended. No spoiler, but some first thoughts.
Epic is the word. Epic multiplied by a decade of emotion, excitement and investment. This is the payoff.
It left me with a full heart, but one I had has some scars on it. Those are the strongest kind, after all. pic.twitter.com/Ay2rXISBOB

Official reviews won’t be out until Tuesday (April 23rd.) But it seems like the movie is a fitting end to over 22 films. (Apparently, it’s not the end of the third phase, however; Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel, said Spider-Man: Far From Home will be the final movie in the phase.)
Avengers: Endgame will be released on April 26th. Stay away from spoilers.
