"Movie Jabber Expo has been exciting especially since it did not only involve the screening of Avengers Infinity War but because it has had a combination of different fun places all under one place. I myself I have had a chance to watch the cosplay and participated in the gaming tournament. Next time I will come dressed in Spiderman’s costume, it’s pretty much fun” said Mike, a 12year old kid.
Business Insider SSA sampled reviews of five Kenyans after they had watched the film.
"The movie was fantastic, full of fiction, at some point it was kind of scary especially watching it in 3D since it was my first screening experience. But I loved it’’, says Christie who watched the 1st screening of the day.
"I loved it, especially that it featured the Wakanda kingdom, Chadwick Boseman of Black Panther it was quite interesting,’’ Simon Kaindi comments.
"it was exciting, at the same time sad when Gamora is sacrificed by Thanos in his quest for the soul stone. I almost shed a tear, but the movie was a killer. Can’t wait for the next one,’’ Allan Ochieng says.
"Star Lord was so useless in Infinity War, he proved to be Marvel’s worst hero, I expected much of him but still the movie was a killer. The suspense at end though, leaves me trying to figure what next in Wakanda and in Thanos’ homeworld of Titan, Great experience though’’, Leone says
"The movie was kind of overrated, it was not as exciting as I expected, Thanos succeeded in everything turning everyone into ash, it was crazy, I can’t try and imagine what will happen in the next series’’ said Jeff.
"The ending was bad, crazy. As far as gigantic tentpole endings go, this has got to be one of the most downbeat in recent memory, most of the cast perished in the final minutes, including Black, Star-Lord and poor sweet Spider-Man. Now what happens?’’ said a displeased Aurellia.
