Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Description: Doctor Strange encounters a mysterious teenage girl from his dreams who can travel to all sorts of worlds. However, she cannot fully control her powers, so she must fight against various threats. Strange steps up to protect the girl from evil forces, including versions of himself from another universe, that threaten to wipe out millions from across the multiverse.

Many of the film's ideas are interesting and work well in this story. Although not all aspects feel equally developed and sometimes we simply "ran" to put them in, overall I really didn't know what would happen next. Well, it is clear what will happen in general, the good guys will win and the bad guys will lose, but each new scene brought a wave of uncertainty, when the creators can allow themselves to experiment more with both characters and stylistics. Yes, it's another Marvel universe movie, but one that allows itself to have that necessary bit of uniqueness. While I was initially afraid that Doctor Strange would be sidelined in his own movie, that's not the case. And each character had their own little story arc and didn't feel like they were eating up all of your time. Well, I'll admit, when I heard the name of the new character - America, I had to laugh a little... AMERICA NEEDS OUR HELP, nu come on...

How much you enjoy the movie will also depend on how much you like Sam Ramy as a director, if you watched Evil Dead or 2000 Spider Man movies, you will feel very familiar here. Both the horror elements and the strange effects are very suitable for a film of this nature, which is exactly the kind of strangeness you expect from it. And to be honest, I wanted a lot more of these elements, I can already imagine what this movie would be like if it were a 100% horror movie, and I think it would be quite a unique experience - a horror multiverse. Overall, the balance between a Marvel-esque film and a weird horror/humor universe is kept balanced, plus it answers some of the questions left in the franchise.

I can imagine how difficult it is to create something unique or different but still fit within the framework of Marvel that has existed for a decade. After all, if the movie will be completely different, you won't be able to fit it into your Grant Universe Plan, so here I understand how many limitations a work like Doctor Strange will have. But isn't anyone tired of that "all in one world" jumble? When should everything be connected, told, have its own backstory or some other Š. Well, it doesn't matter, the thing that brings the film down the most is that it feels too long and scattered all over the place. There are many ideas, and good ones, but they feel very unevenly developed and towards the end you start to feel the length of the film. Also, artifacts or books that are either totally bad or totally good, such an old and tired concept…

Overall - 8/10
