Something Different: Dr Strange 2 and the Multiverse of Madness

Despite what the so called movie critics said –  No spoilers and despite what the critics have said Dr.Strange 2 is not bad at all, yes you have to concentrate to follow it and it has special effects that are excellent. Compared to Black Widow, Eternals, and Shang-Chi this is Marvel possibly getting back on track after an ok Spider Man 3 as well. Benedict Cumberbatch is very good as he tends to be in most things.

Without giving anything away basically America Chavez and an alternate version of Dr. Stephen Strange are chased by a demon in space between universes to find the Book of Vishanti. This also involves Scarlet Witch played by Elizabeth Olsen, good as well but maybe not great in the film. The film moves along at a decent pace throughout and it keeps you interested as it goes along, the special effects as I said are very good.

I went to the cinema not expecting anything enjoyable after the last few Marvel movies and was pleasantly surprised that I liked the film, my son enjoyed it as well which is good as it was choice of a treat. I am not a big fan of the multi-verse theme and I really hope they don’t keep to this and get back to a more story arc type approach but if you like Marvel then this is worth seeing and it may surprise you overall but Marvel do need to up their game a bit as it does all feel a bit tired now. Rating – 6 out of 10.

    Giving my age away, and even worse my Uncle (black Watch and wartime POW) was a massive ‘comic’ fan, or are they all called ‘graphic novels’ these days.
    All I will say is the original ‘Dr strange’ movie was precisely how I remember the original ‘comic’. Qualifying, of course, as much as 55yrs ago memory permits.
    Bit more of a fascinating character than Captain America. Thanks for the movie critique . May very well watch. Cheers!

      The film was decent, not as good as the first one, but I went dreading the worst following the reviews and came away thinking the film the critics are often more full of it than we think and they don’t always know better than the audience.

      Thanks for commenting.

    Sounds good. I’ll give that a go. Have to say though, if there’s a Red Witch she should be played by Carice Van Houten. Just Sayin.
