Sam Raimi is back! Fifteen years after the conclusion of his «Spider-Man» trilogy and almost a decade after his previous feature film, «The Great Oz», he is making his comeback with the Marvel blockbuster » Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness «. And in many of the first Twitter voices that are now available, the exceptional director is celebrated.
The Wrap ‘s Drew Taylor describes the adventure as a «100% Sam Raimi movie». What that means? This is probably illustrated by Perri Nemiroff’s tweet, which jubilates: «Marvel has made a horror film!» and praises the result as «crazy and terrifying» .
For Eric Italiano, the Doctor Strange sequel not only feels like a Sam Raimi film, but is the perfection of the MCU formula . That means: While there are many franchise and multiverse implications, in the end the whole thing still stands on its own, concentrating on its own story and style.
The revelations already mentioned are likely to result in many surprising appearances, which have already been speculated about in advance. But maybe they also divide the audience? The many surprises are at least teased again and again, but there is also criticism of too much fan service .
So not everyone is excited about Doctor Strange 2. Podcaster Matt Lynch, who criticizes the «lousy optics» and also finds the events rather incoherent, becomes very clear , without going into more detail. Because mostly the positive impressions outweigh these first Twitter votes. Those who don’t know what to do with the film often save it for the detailed criticism and maybe just tease it — like Brian Tallerico, who by renaming the film title makes it clear that he doesn’t think much of «Doctor Strange 2» and rather the result «meh» because «mad» was.
What many critics agree on: Elizabeth Olsen is great as Wanda Maximoff and newcomer Xochitl Gomez is also praised. She is a real scene thief.
„Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness“ läuft ab dem 4. Mai 2022 in den Kinos. Im Laufe des Tages dürfen die ersten Kritiken erscheinen. Auch die FILMSTARTS-Kritik wird es dann geben.
