‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ review: Benedict Cumberbatch works his magic on Sam Raimi’s horror marvel

when you come Sam Raimi inside the marvel Cinematic Universe, you can bet you’ll get something different, and that’s definitely the case with his very scary movie in the latest MCU entry, Doctor Strange in a multiverse of madness. Although Al Remy is well versed in the Marvel comic book world, he directed the first Spider Man Trilogy He is also known for many other genres, certainly for his horror films including Evil died And drag me to hell Among many more, here he successfully and amusingly manages to blend the genre of dark horror storytelling with the well-established lovable characters of the MCU.


Benedict Cumberbatch He plays Dr. Stephen Strange, a wizard, wizard, and a superhero who can conjure all sorts of colorful spells to save a situation, just as he did in his 2016 first independent film, and again in MCU films like Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, And recently he brought his unique tour of parallel universes in a considerably lighter form into the Spider-Man: There’s no room for home. For this he travels in the multiverse, encountering different sides – as it were – of the main players including Himself. Most notable is the reunion with Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch played to the limit. Elizabeth Olsen Who steals that film lock, stock, and barrel. No shock there because she’s coming out of her own Disney+ in character WandaVision Which serves as a beautiful setting for what begins to unfold here when Strange recruits Wanda to help him deal with a young girl named America Chavez (Yochitl Gomez) who turns out to have a great ability to traverse the many multiverses but doesn’t know how to control her powers.

When a stranger suddenly leaves Kristen Palmer’s wedding ( Rachel McAdams Return) In order to fend off a giant octopus creature called Gargantos that is chasing America through the city streets in order to capture it and take its power for itself, it’s just the beginning of a beautiful and complex relationship. America has become the number one target of the blinding-stunning witch, and the evil side of Wanda is now trapped in another dimension and searching her way back to motherhood and her two young sons has visions of an alternate world and a life completely different from life. – No prisoners in which she now uses her extraordinary powers to destroy anyone and anything that gets in her way. she He should Getting America’s abilities back to its children – or so you think. She became the main enemy of Strange and company. In light of all this, Mother’s Day weekend seems to be the perfect date for the release that Disney chose to launch this monster at the box office. and regarding monsters There are a lot of them on display as well.

As for where it all goes, the less talk the better because there are also plenty of surprises to come, and that includes the appearance of several not-to-be-missed stars who brought cheers to the press show Monday night in Century City, and believe me there will be a lot Hype around them, as well as those who appear in the obligatory end scenes where we rest assured “Doctor Stringer will be back”. After this remaster, I hope Strange returns with this director because with the help of screenwriter Michael Waldron (Loki), This feels like an author-driven Marvel movie so far, one that’s at least not afraid to deviate from the orders of an expected MCU career, but it’s also completely loyal to the comic book bible in keeping the story in line with the overall arc of these intertwined things. It’s a win all around.

Cumberbatch is having some delicious fun this time around in several incarnations of Stephen Strange including fighting against himself, and this actor undoubtedly makes them all his own, even if Olsen lashes out with such fierce force that she takes full command when on screen. McAdams has some sweet moments, as is the always-reliable Benedict Wong, who has now been upgraded to Supreme Sorcerer Wong for this segment. Gomez is a puffy find like America. Chiwetel Ejiofor is slightly reprising the role of Strait Suppliers. So does Michael Stolbarg as Strange’s former colleague Dr. Nick West (they have a particularly funny scene early in the church). It’s especially encouraging that so many women, including also the gorgeous Sheila Atem, get such a solid exposure in a movie like this.

The movie delivers on all fronts, including a great Danny Elfman score, and looks great even if the massive amounts of psychedelic CGI visuals are a bit exaggerated. This thing rarely slows down to breathing in more than two hours. Fortunately, its welcome to fans is not wan, and they will inevitably come in droves when it opens Friday after Thursday night’s previews. Producer Kevin Feige of course. Rest assured that while there’s plenty of blood to be had, something Raimi can get all the way up to, it’s tough to handle everything here in PG13, and stop before it’s too geared for families.
