Dr Strange in the Multiverse of Madness-Mini-Review

Posted by THE SNAKE on May 25, 2022 at 2:50 PM

 Yes I'm back with another Mini-review, this time of one of this summers Blockbuster films. As the Marvel Cinematic Universe expands we here at KITG try to get our heads round all the stories.

So without further ado,enjoy the review.



Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness- 2022


Yes, another Mini-review for you all, once again the KITG crew ventured out to see the second in the Doctor Strange movies by Marvel, and the 28th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


Now I for one have seen most of the Marvel films over the years, but there are a few that I have not yet, add to this the fact that Marvel also makes TV streaming series of some characters which all fall in line with the Universe of Marvel and it makes it quite hard to remember or know of each character.


If you have missed a film or two and not seen all the series it can make key elements of the story within these films pass you by as you may have not seen that particular previous film or TV series.


So I went into the film with the hope to be able to unravel all the stories and fill in the blanks about what I may have missed.


This time we have Doctor Strange suffering from dreams/nightmares, whatever you may call them.


When he attends the wedding of his close friend Christine he witnesses demon-like spirits wrecking the city and going after a young girl.


Being the superhero he is, he intervenes to save the girl after going through a series of death-defying confrontations with said demons.


After saving the girl who happens to be very wary of him, he discovers his dreams are not just dreams but real happenings in an alternate reality and universe.


This becomes more apparent when the young girl presents to him the dead body of himself from another universe...


His goal is to help the girl and find out what these demons want.


He turns to an old colleague by the name of Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch.

He tells Wanda his situation in a bid she may help.


Like any Marvel universe film, the film starts and ends with huge CGI effects and battles across universes against unfathomable foes.


To get to the truth Doctor Strange must travel to various universes to uncover the reason behind all the wanton destruction.


He encounters his own self in various forms and has to also confront allies that are foes in his own Universe and vice versa.


It does give many cast members different characterisations to unravel within the same character.


Unlike something like Shang Chi where you may marvel at the choreography of the Martial arts action, most Marvel Universe films are just big CGI showcases with actors going through the motions in front of Green screens while special effects are added after.


We enjoyed our time with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and I suppose in the end the real stars of the film are the computer geniuses behind all the effects.


Though the actors do give a believable performance considering for the most part they do all this in plain studios.


For myself, I don't usually rush to see any of the Marvel films on the big screen as there all pretty much the same, all delivering the same kind of movie with different characters.


But as I like Benedict Cumberbatch and have seen him perform some real amazing acting in other films I didn't mind going to see this one as I regard the first Doctor Strange Movie as one of the better films from the Marvel catalog.


At nearly two and half hours it goes quite quickly as the action comes thick and fast.

And as a switch of your brain action fodder, it's quite fun.
