Dr Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness - Mini Review


No Spoilers. Yet wink


Ok, so I'm just home now after seeing the movie on the big screen so it's still a bit too fresh in my mind to decide how it ranks amongst the rest of the MCU but I will say this; it's a really fucking good movie. I kind of half expected it to be full of cameos just for the sake of it and it's not. It's not that kind of movie at all. I will avoid including any spoilers here for those of you who want to go in with as little knowledge of the plot as possible so if, like me, you've managed to avoid any spoilers before seeing the movie, I think you'll enjoy it even more.

Ok, first things first, I said it's not one of those "here's a cameo, there's a cameo" type movies and it's not. But that's not to say there aren't any cool cameos. In fact, there are quite a few. Just less than I was expecting. And if you've managed to avoid knowing who these cameos are, I strongly advise you to stay off Twitter until you see it because once the movie opens, people WILL be talking about these cameos. One in particular that I never saw coming. You've been warned!

The movie itself is pretty standard MCU stuff for the most part. There's a few nice little Sam Raimi touches along the way but it's certainly not the dramatic departure that some of the trailers are suggesting. What sets it apart from the majority of the MCU is the performances. Some of the acting here is really top notch. Elizabeth Olsen is especially good. Like, Oscars-good. I doubt she'll actually be nominated but I guarantee you that her performance here is better than most, if not all, of last year's best actress nominations. Saying any more may give away some important plot details so all I'll say is her range in this movie is incredible. And I never rated her as an actress before today.

Some of the CGI looked a bit weird to me though. That's my only real complaint. I wasn't wearing my glasses so I'm not sure if that had any impact on my viewing experience but sometimes it looked a bit... cheap? It also didn't help that before the movie they showed the new trailer for Avatar 2. And that looks fucking amazing, by the way.

Overall, I really liked Dr Strange 2. Some of it was just crazy (in a good way) and I can't believe some of the choices Marvel made here regarding some of the things [REDACTED] does (also in a good way). It was different enough that I liked it but for those of you expecting some massive departure from the Marvel formula, you'll be disappointed.
