Just a few days before the worldwide release of Avengers: Endgame, early reactions for the film are starting to roll in across social media. According to critics and others who saw early screenings of the three-hour film, Endgame is a masterful, emotional epic that provides a fitting end to the first decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While expectations for the film are incredibly high across the board, multiple reviewers noted that the film surpassed their own lofty expectations. Instead of merely serving as a sequel to Avengers: Infinity War, many said that the film was the satisfying culmination of all 21 Marvel movies that came before.

Where Avengers: Infinity War ended on a distinctly depressing note, many reviewers noted how funny Endgame was. However, one of the most common notes was that the movie drove audience members to tears multiple times. After the world premiere, Captain America actor Chris Evans reportedly said that he even cried roughly "six times."

While no one actor was routinely singled out for their performance, the original six members of the Avengers cast--Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner-- were all collectively praised by several reviewers.

While negative comments about the film were few and far between, several people who saw it encouraged Marvel fans to avoid spoilers before seeing the movie.
