The first reviews for Avengers: Endgame are out, and it's looks like fans are going to be pretty happy when it finally lands later this week.
The highly-anticipated movie had its world premiere at the Los Angeles Convention Centre last night and the jammy journos who got to see it first are gushing about the new flick, with reviews calling it 'a masterful epic' and 'an astonishingly amazing film'.
Erik Davis, managing editor at Fandango, took to Twitter to share his (spoiler-free) opinion, writing: "Avengers: Endgame 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!
"Do not go in expecting Infinity War part two. The two films are so different, yet compliment each other in all the best ways. In terms of which MCU movie to watch beforehand... honestly, all of them. What an experience - what an accomplishment.
"Not going to spoil anything at all, but I will say I laughed, I cried, I cried, I cheered, I laughed, I cried again and then the entire audience gave it a massive standing ovation. And then I cried again. Be ready, kids. Be. Ready."

Well, that sounds pretty bloody promising doesn't it?
Avengers: Endgame is released in the UK on 25 April...or two more sleeps.
If Erik's review hasn't quite convinced you yet, ComicBook's Brandon Davis tweeted: "Avengers: Endgame is an astonishing, amazing film. I've never seen anything like it. This movie is everything I wanted to be and SO much more. Amazing.
"While watching Avengers: Endgame, I laughed so loud, I clapped with so much force, and I cried so hard. The movie exceeds every expectation and is the perfect culmination of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"I just can't remember a cinematic experience like the one I just had with Avengers: Endgame. Simply blown away. I feel like that movie was made for every Marvel fan, everywhere."
So I just saw #AvengersEndgame, and you guys aren't ready for shiiiiit. All the theorizing didn't prepare you for this. I cried a lot, I flung my hands in the air and screamed out loud. It's incredible. #EndgamePremiereLA #Avengers #Endgame

And SlashFilm's Peter Sciretta wrote: "Imagine the best possible version of Avengers:Endgame and somehow the film still surpasses all expectations.
"I cried 5-6 times. It's the most emotional, most epic, MCU film. A tribute to ten years of this universe and holy shit the great fan service in this movie. Soooo good."
I can't wait for this.
