Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness info

Doctor Strange teams up with a mysterious teenage girl from his dreams who can travel across multiverses, to battle multiple threats, including other-universe versions of himself, which threaten to wipe out millions across the multiverse. They seek help from Wanda the Scarlet Witch, Wong and others.

  • Sam Raimi initially didn’t want to direct any future superhero films, having lost faith in himself due to the critical and audience backlash he received from Spider-Man 3 (2007) due to studio interference from Sony. However, getting the call from his agent about this film encouraged him to try again, as he had thoroughly enjoyed the first Doctor Strange film (as well as the character himself) and wanted to see if he could live up to the challenge of meeting the audience’s expectations once again.

Not enough multiverse and maybe too much madness

Sam Raimi definitely put a splash of horror in this action film. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is darker & more violent than any previous MCU movie, which could be considered a strength. However, I felt like there was not enough multiverse and maybe too much madness. Despite the entertaining visuals, the plot is fairly chaotic, and the acting & dialogue are inconsistent. This movie is an entertaining ride, but it’s a little too messy to stand on its own.

Terrible plot and script, boring and pointless

The plot is super weak – the worst of the film – but the script is also very erroneous with some strange and unexplainable writing decisions. There are some interesting shots – some Dutch angles and POV are cool – but this feel stupidly long for a film that is just 2 hours long. It’s like watching the action going from setpiece to setpiece in a very inorganic way while travelling between boring universe with a lot of cringe dialogue. I don’t even get the point of all this story for the entire universe and even the score – surprisingly considering that is Elfman – is super generic.

somewhere in the multiverse, there’s a better version of this movie that exists.

The overall pacing is relentless and the sequel shows its hand a lot earlier than you’d expect. There’s been endless speculation from fans about the villain, which i won’t spoil here, but it’s revealed surprisingly quickly.

What A Mess! I Want My 2 Hours Back!

This definitely wasn’t what I expected. It started out good and I was thinking: All Right, Here we go. But that didn’t last very long. Then it got so chaotic and scattered. It went everywhere and nowhere. Because you couldn’t follow it in a meaningful way. I won’t give any spoilers. I’ll just say that I was highly disappointed. And once I got past the half-hour mark, I actually considered walking out. This film deserved a better script and a more appropriate director. Raimi wasn’t the best choice for a Doctor Strange film. Other stuff he’s directed, I love. But this was a Hot Mess!

A Seriously Superb and Creative Concept Executed Blandly

Sometimes alike but also usually unalike most of the Avengers superhero movies in the MCU, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a giant mess. It’s especially disappointing since its 2016 predecessor was surprisingly a blast; it featured a talented neurosurgeon who lost the ability to use his hands properly after a car crash, following towards some solid drama and his entertaining journey to becoming a superhero. The Multiverse of Madness understandably isn’t that, and shouldn’t just be a sequel that watches the first film before its new story, but its just too chaotic.

You would probably find the film a lot more enjoyable if you properly read and understood what it was actually about, because the trailer was just convoluted and the film is actually about Doctor Strange opening a portal to the multiverse that includes alternate versions of himself, other people and lifestyle. Even for a 2 hour movie, this film feels very rushed, overly pacy and it just ends up convoluted in the way the multiverse works and what happens. It’s definitely entertaining and really engages you, but you probably need to go and break down the story to understand it.

The action battle between Doctor Strange and the octopus-alien monster really gets you engaged, but all of the action is very loud and too rushed. It’s alike Marvel movies for using the same predictable basis Marvel creates for superheroes, meaning big fans of Marvel will probably really enjoy it. This movie mostly deserves points for its new characters and the whole idea of Doctor Strange entering the multiverse (of madness).

The characters are executed well and wisely use the talents of a brilliant cast, but the concept is just too rushed and could use some times to stop and take a breath. It’s also worth noting that Sam Raimi uses lots of horror scenes and jump-scares throughout this movie, so it’s much scarier than other Marvel blockbusters.

Does this film belong to Dr. Strange? NO!

The main story, being quite absurd and ordinary, focuses so much on Wanda and America that Dr. Strange “strangely” gets sandwiched in between them. It almost feels you are watching a Wanda film rather than a Dr. Strange film. This was a huge negative as he leaves barely any impact. Majority of the impact is left by Wanda only who puts up a near Civil war like situation with Strange.

This is a VFX heavy film. Lots and lots and lots of special effects like any other Marvel film but here, to mask the poor story has been used. It is only this that make the film enjoyable. Often certain fight sequences also make the film enjoyable. Humor also works wherever present.

Overall, watch only if you are a die hard follower of marvel series (both films amd web series). If not, then Requesting not to watch just due to peer pressure as many things will go above your head and you will only end up enjoying the vfx nothing else.
