JAY 🌿’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’m going to start with my biggest negative takeaway from this film even though, overall, I actually thought this was pretty OK. I honestly think this was a huge missed opportunity. By opening up the multiverse there’s literally so much you can play with. They could have explored some incredibly imaginative worlds. They could have toyed with format, sound, animation, characters… anything!! Yet all we really got was… New York but with more flowers? Honestly, the multiverse of madness my ass.
However, instead of focusing on what they didn’t do, I did come to appreciate what Sam Raimi did do. I really liked how dark this was and genuinely jumped at one of the jump scares. I also liked what they did with some of the ‘illuminati’ characters. That seemed like a bit more fun.
Definitely not top tier Marvel but it really could have been. I just wish they were a little braver with it. (79/100)
