Avengers: Infinity War has officially rolled out in theaters across the U.S. and now the critics' opinion is in.

As seen below, much praise was given to the film's cinematography. Rob Dean at Bullz-Eye called it a "spectacle," while Owen Gleiberman at Variety praised the movie's "intense action sequences."

Moreover, actor Josh Brolin has been praised for his portrayal of Thanos, who some critics have argued is the best Marvel villain to date. That being said, minor gripes include the long running time of 149 minutes and that the movie can be hard to follow for those uninitiated with the Marvel universe.

Find out what the experts think below.

A small number weren't completely sold by the blockbuster

The insubstantiality of the film isn't due to the infinite yet flimsy malleability of C.G.I. gimmickry but, instead, to the dispersion of its drama throughout the many cinematic installations set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Richard Brody - The New Yorker

Never has the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” seemed like more of a universe, in ways both good and bad. Infinity War—the title is almost too apt—is a narrative juggling act the likes of which I’m not sure I’ve ever seen before. It is far from a perfect movie, but it is probably close to the best movie it could have been.

Christopher Orr - The Atlantic

Watching the enjoyable but overstuffed superhero epic Avengers: Infinity War is kind of like attending a crowded cocktail party where you more-or-less know everyone, but sometime struggle to put names and backstories to the faces,

But others agreed the action sequences raised the stakes

It is a massive spectacle full of fun character moments, impressive action sequences and a real sense of stakes that serves as a great beginning of the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as audiences have come to know it.

Rob Dean - Bullz-Eye

Avengers: Infinity War delivers on what was promised: a full-out, almost exhausting level of combat, with nearly every major Marvel character we know involved. But more than that, the there's a personal dimension to many of the struggles onscreen.

Eli Glasner, CBC News

“Infinity War” is a brashly entertaining jamboree, structured to show off each hero or heroine and give them just enough to do, and to update their mythologies without making it all feel like homework.

Owen Gleiberman - Variety

The casting was on point

The combinations of heroes working together feels both inevitable and unexpected, and the sheer charisma of the cast means that whatever scene or planet we cut to, there’s someone there to care about.

Helen o'hara - Empire

With performances off the charts

Everyone shows up in this film, there is not a single weak performance to speak of. This is largely due to most of the actors playing these characters so long they are essentially a part of them by now [...] The fact that we’ve invested ten years, the fact that we have grown to love most of these characters and seeing all it all come together makes it all worth it.
