Summer starts early this year in Hollywood with the potentially record-breaking release of Avengers: Infinity War on Friday. The red carpet premiere for the movie featuring Marvel's marquee superheroes was held on Monday for the stars, press and some extremely fortunate fans. And the first reactions — of those who shared their opinions on social media following the screening — has mostly been positive.

With many predicting Avengers: Infinity War to score the biggest opening of all time, these reviews are only likely to increase the buzz around the movie ahead of its release.

So, here's what they had to say.

As always, you can always depend upon Kevin Smith to give us a good dose of hyperbole.

IGN's Scott Collura called it "one big mix-tape of fun, thrills, emotion and despair."

IndieWire's Erick Kohn called it "the most expensive Hollywood movie explicitly designed to mess with its audience."

John Steven Rocha of Collider said the movie gives everyone a moment to shine before calling it the "best film the MCU has ever done!"

CNET's Mike Sorrentino referred to it as "the MCU's biggest soap opera ever," but assured fans "that's not a bad thing."

Many praised the movie's ending. SlashFilm's Peter Sciretta teased fans saying the movie won't be anything you expect.

...while some were more confused by it...

...and a few disappointed.
