“I love you in every world,” Dr. Strange told Kristen, as two different versions of each meet. It epitomizes the core of the movie and it’s the infinite facts available to everyone, some worse, some better, but nothing quite as relevant as your current self.
Doctor Strange embarks on a multiverse of madness with Stephen (Benedict Cumberbatch) at the wedding of Kristen (Rachel McAdams). It’s a reminder of Doctor Strange’s low-key arrogance which is why he never ended up with Kristen.
The wedding is cut short, as Doctor Strange is forced into matters more important than those of the heart – a massive one-eyed octopus-like monster swarming through the streets of New York City and destroying everything in its path. After Doctor Strange disables this monster, it is soon revealed that his target is America, a teenage girl who can travel in the multiverse.

People will be killing for a power like this in the Marvel universe and it’s soon revealed that the fan favorite is on America’s heels. The rest of the film is presented in a whirlwind of creative magic, a hint of horror and obsession and more than enough jump scares.
Marvel fans will absolutely love the cameos from the old favorites the studio has managed to keep a secret, as well as the emotional performance of Wandavision (Elizabeth Olsen), who is haunted by visions of children she could have given birth to in another world. Both this story and the right person, a erroneous temporal metaphor from the story of Doctor Strange and Kristen keep the humanity of the story in an entirely otherworldly plot.
Hearing that director Sam Raimi directed the second Doctor Strange movie makes perfect sense. The director, previously known for the The Evil Dead trilogy, has created a shocking plot that is witty, witty, and terrifying at some points.
With what would have been a confusing plot, there’s no point in the movie being difficult to follow, and each main character’s decisions are justified by glimpses of their past thanks to the talented script of Michael Waldron.
I wanted to see more infinite possibilities of other worlds. He briefly shows us a world in which humans turn to paint, a world where plants grow out of buildings and another that collapses within itself. Despite all the fantasy of magic, it seems a shame that so few get into other universes, when that is the main theme.
The story is also one written for Marvel geeks, and there’s nowhere for anyone who hasn’t watched the Disney+ mini-series WandaVision, seen the original X-Men movies, or even missed their first Doctor Strange. I imagine that alienates regular Marvel fans.
The adventure comes alone on IMAX screen as intended by Raimi and Marvel Studios, having been filmed with certified IMAX cameras. The amount of detail in the different worlds is well worth the space and almost makes you feel like you’re wandering around in the worlds too.
All in all Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a very interesting story of aliens, learning who to trust and who can put their ego aside first. The CGI is captivating, the quieter scenes are emotional and the ending is left open for an intriguing follow-up I’ve spent the past 24 hours desperately trying to predict.
Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness was released on May 5 in the UK and May 6 in the US. Pre-book tickets for Doctor Strange at IMAX at Birmingham Cineworld on Broad Street.
