Review: Doctor Strange in the Mutiverse of Madness

Disclosure: A digital code was provided for review purposes.

I'm a huge fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Doctor Strange is one of my favorite characters (I am a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch).

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was a very enjoyable movie, diving into the background of Doctor Strange as well as The Scarlet Witch, through a very fun and extremely creative storyline.

My youngest son summarized the movie:

In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Stephen Strange find himself in a city being attacked by a monster that is chasing a girl named America, who can travel through the Multiverse.  Stephen sought the help of Wanda Maximoff to help save America, but instead discovered that Wanda herself was the one wanting to capture America to obtain her powers, in order to go to a universe where she is back with her kids.  

My son loved when Doctor Strange and America found themselves "falling" through various universes (like paint).  One of my son's favorite parts dealt with an older man who keeps hitting himself (hint: stay tuned for the end credits).

Another exciting part of the movie was when the Illuminati were introduced, which included several familiar characters (I won't spoil it for you!).  

In a film full of various "trippy" universes, and "other other Doctor Stranges," as well good and evil books, the ability to dreamwalk and cause incursions (when two universes collide, causing one or both to be destructed), viewers are taken on quite a wild ride.  

I admit - at times it was hard for me to follow, but the movie was so enjoyable, that I'm sure I'll watch it again and again to pick up on details I missed the first time (as I do with most MCU movies).  

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is full of action, humor, and a very interesting storyline that at times got me tearing up.  It's a great addition to your MCU collection!

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is available on Digital and Blu-ray.
