If there’s one thing that Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness does is putting an end to the notion that directors don’t have the right to apply their own distinctive stylistic marks over the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Filmmakers such as James Gunn, Taika Waititi as well as Chloe Zhao all offered their individual MCU films their signature style, and of course however there’s something in this latest chapter that makes it feel like it’s announcing that these movies are becoming the norm and not an exception. From the top downand for better and for worse Multiverse of Madness is a Sam Raimi film through and through.
MCU critics will point out an overall consistency in the different stages. However, this could be true particularly before the release of films that have a distinct feel, such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok It also provides general viewing experience for people who don’t have a lot of time. It’s great for pocketbooks of studios however it may not offer the most exciting cinematic experience. This is for the reason that this latest Doctor Strange outing will, as the rest of the MCU has its critics However, you’ll be to find someone who is putting down the film for being bored.
Sam Raimi’s entire spectrum of spookiness and weirdness is fully displayed from beginning to end. It’s whether it’s through the characters, the cameos that are specifically Raimi’s or simply the style,fans familiar with his films will be able to identify numerous scenes with the director’s signature.
In most cases, that signature style works. However, in the case of some scenes that are bizarre because they’re bizarre and others limited by screenwriter Michael W. Waldron’s sometimes awkward speech, even most ardent of Raimi admirers may be raising an eyebrow at times. However, the film works much better than it doesn’t.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Its success is in no small measure because of the performances. There’s no bad actor among the cast however Elizabeth Olsen is constantly reminding us of how easy it is to change into a capital-actor like Wanda Maximoff. While Xochitl Dominguez has done a fantastic job of bringing America Chavez into the MCU and has left us wanting to see additional scenes from her in the near future as Rachel McAdams did her best with an under-utilized Christine Palmer. Naturally, Benedict Cumberbatch was great as always. (His American accent is really getting better with me, you guys. I’m not sure what I should say.)
Are there any aspects from the Sam Raimi film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness that could be improved? Definitely. The script is a bit sloppy occasionally as well as having some bizarre scenes that are just bizarre to be funny but do not contribute to the overall story and character growth. It’s still got an amazing score for, some great performances, and the fans are never bored!
