First thing's first: There are no real SPOILERS for Avengers: Infinity War ahead, but if you would like to go in blind, stop reading now. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, some lucky people in the U.K. were able to watch around 25 minutes of footage from Infinity War and all of the early reactions have been extremely positive. The miniature reviews of the movie do it a great service, but they don't give much away, except for one key note.

Joe.IE out of Ireland released their review of the Infinity War footage and proclaimed it to be funny, epic, and noted that the villains look "spectacular." The review also goes on to say that fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are, "in for a treat." This reaction falls in line with what people were saying about the Infinity War footage that made its debut at the D23 Expo and San Diego Comic Con last summer. The complete review reads.

"We saw 24mins of #AvengersInfinityWar today & now we just want to watch it all. It's funny, the action is epic & the villains look spectacular. Plus, goatees! Groot! AND the sneak peek is more quotable than most feature-length films. #Marvel fans are in for an amazing treat."

Digital Spy also reviewed this sliver of Infinity War footage, and it's overwhelmingly positive. This review hints at changes from the trailers that we've seen and calls the Marvel movie "way ambitious," which seems pretty obvious. And here's where a minor SPOILER comes into play, so stop here if you're looking to go into Infinity War blind. The review says.

"We've just seen 30 mins of #AvengersInfinityWar. Can't say too much but it's way ambitious, it'll switch tones between different groups (the Guardians sequence had a very different, look, feel and soundtrack to the New York scenes) and it's going to be funny. Still no Hawkeye!"

Tom Butler from the U.K. also saw the roughly 30 minutes of footage from Infinity War and he heaps praise on Marvel and the Russo Brothers. He was also asked about the inclusion of Ant-Man in the footage, but he remained tight-lipped. Additionally, Butler highlighted the potential for humor in the epic movie. He had this to say.

"Just saw 25 mins of #AvengersInfinityWar. Can't say much, but it was one hell of a trip seeing Marvel characters from all corners of the universe crossing paths. So much potential for humour, and the @Russo_Brothers milked it for every penny."

The mini screenings of Infinity War have begun all over the world, so be on the lookout for potential spoilers. Chris Pratt was in Brazil earlier in the week where he screened the same footage for himself and fans, noting that it looks "awesome." We're only a few short weeks away from Infinity War hitting theaters, and the early reactions are positive, which should comfort some Marvel fans and possibly sadden some Hawkeye fans. You can read the mini reviews of the 25 minutes of Infinity War footage below, thanks to Tom Butler's Twitter account.
