Long! So, so long. We took my 9yo son and 6 of his friends to see the movie, for his birthday. My son, big-time superhero nerd, was rapt. But after 20 mins of previews and ~90 mins of movie, some of the other 8/9yos with us got antsy. And there was still a whole nother hour to go! 3 or 4 of the kids made a few trips to the bathroom, or water fountain, or whatever.

Dark! So, so dark. Scenes of torture, a few deaths. Much darker than many/most (all?) of the Marvel movies have been. Grim and desperate.

Busy. You need a pretty solid sense of who all the heroes are from previous movies, because there is absolutely no extra time to fill you in on anyone's backstory.

Choppy. The ensemble is so huge, they have to cut away to what a different group is doing in another part of the story, like every 2 seconds.

I thought it was great. Epic. Ambitious, well pulled-off. I think I may have loved it? But I have to stop short of "recommending" it, esp to families with kids younger than ~10 or so, due to reasons given above. Not as fun as Thor Ragnarok, or Doc Strange, or even Wonder Woman. That's right, less "fun" than World War One. But yeah, I thought it was great. I was impressed.

So long. Best part of the film was Brolin as Thanos.

Its funny to think that people believe Wakanda is what Africa would be like if there were no European influence in the past.

It was good but long. Ragnarok raised the bar.

He's ten, he liked it okay but I can't say he's mentioned it since.

Meh. Killing off people who have movies coming up isn't convincing.

I finally saw it a couple nights ago; the night after finally seeing Ragnarok on Netflix.
After Ragnarok, my wife asked, “Would it kill them to spend some money on a good script?”
I’d say the same about Infinity War.
