Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ★★★

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness feels thrown together. Some of it works, some of it doesn’t, but it feels surprisingly bland. The story never connects emotionally, which makes it hard to care deeply.

For a multiverse movie, this felt weirdly contained, and honestly a little forgettable.

Elizabeth Olsen always shines as Wanda, and Cumberbatch has plenty to play with in these universes. There are flairs of Raimi’s style from time to time, and this is the closest we may ever get to a Marvel horror movie, which is interesting.

There’s certainly fan service that will get people talking, but the moments feel a bit cheap and haphazard. It’s not bad, but didn’t pack much of a punch.

It’s very middle of the road. Not bad, but I wish it was better.
