Kent Graham’s review published on Letterboxd:
I had high hopes for this because Sam Raimi directed. Sadly, there’s little magic in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness — even with Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch pitting her magic against the powers of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange. A poor script (drugged tea, really?) with clunky dialog (including the groaner “I’m not a monster, Stephen, I’m a mother!”) summons lots of silliness that can’t be rescued by some talented actors. Raimi does bring his horror touches to the proceedings, but the special effects scream CGI and don’t dazzle. It even felt cheapened by tying its major plot point to the WandaVision TV series. I also think it’s time for the MCU to put the Mulitiverse to bed. It’s getting pretty tired and uninteresting. Doctor Strange deserves a better movie, especially when the comic book has such a rich legacy to tap. I thought Black Widow was weak but for me Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the bottom of the MCU barrel.
Raimi’s Evil Dead actor Bruce Campbell has a cameo as a hotdog vendor
Diehard MCU and superhero movie fans. Short of that I’d skip Multiverse of Madness.
