MOVIE REVIEW:

Sam Raimi has brought MCU’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with a lot of spin-offs and iterations of Strange. The movie holds the concept of introducing a new character, America Chavez who is a time traveler and jumps across parallel universes bending the time-space phenomenon.

America gets on the nerve of Wanda and faces a battle with Wanda’s alter ego Scarlet Witch, who wants to harness the power America holds. While Wanda is after America, it results in a triggering accident, and to prevent that from happening, Strange jumps in. Here, we see not only Strange from this universe, but from all the multi-billion universes trying to prevent various outcomes of that accident. 

To protect America, Strange with his partner sorcerer Wong go out of their way to control Wanda’s wrath. To help them fight a battle against Wanda, Karl Mordo, an old sorcerer friend of Strange, and Christine Palmer, a former lover also step in to help Strange in the fight. 

While Wanda’s side is shown coming out of a mother’s concern. Her concern for her children makes her turn on Scarlet Witch, and she would cross any lengths if she has to, to protect her twin sons from the universe. Wanda’s backstory from the Wandavision series makes her character understandable with her emotional display and makes Wanda edgier.

Sam Raimi’s idea of horror fantasy has quite a number of whistle-worthy scenes such as of Kamar Taaj in a parallel universe with a hellish outlook. The screenplay has tons of hypnotizing scenes with various portal openings and creative spectacles. However, the plot as compared to the first MCU Doctor Strange could have been better. With all the amazing characters and fight sequences in multi-dimensions, fans found it a bit complex to comprehend.  

While the movie could focus on Strange’s point of view traveling in parallel universes, it can be seen that Wanda’s screen-time is more. Wanda’s emotional ride carries along for the entire film and is the central idea as well. Scarlet Witch’s emotional awakening could have been balanced if Strange’s character was shown more at the core with America, making the movie fun and interesting for the viewers.

But, MCU’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is definitely a movie to watch in theatres and have the experience of multi-dimensions in 3D. With bits of mediocrity, Multiverse of Madness does hold still the expectations of the fans. 

Doctor Stange in the Multiverse of Madness is out in cinemas now!
