Kierre's Review of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness 2022 ★★


Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the sequel to the first Doctor Strange film starring Benedict Cumberbatch. This film takes place after "Avengers: Endgame" and centers around a young girl played by Xochitl Gomez who is being attacked by monsters and Doctor Strange as well as Wong (Benedict Wong) come to her aid. They soon learn that she has the ability to travel across multiple Universes and that The Scarlet Witch aka Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) is the one who is after her to steal her power, which would also kill the girl. So Doctor Strange must travel to other universes in order to help keep the girl safe and find a way to stop The Scarlet Witch.

I

know I'm going to sound like a Marvel hater, but I'm quite honestly getting a little bored and tired of these films. The film is directed by Sam Raimi who does offer a little more "darkness" to the movie but overall, this film is just like low stakes and a set up for what is to come. I just feel like this film really even wasn't a Doctor Strange film but more of a Wanda or Scarlet Witch film in my opinion. I felt like it was low stakes because we all know that nobody major is going to die and nothing will be really resolved. Again, another typical Marvel film where nothing really happens, but is just a set up. It reminded me of "Captain America Civil War" but even less interesting.
