RazorRex’s review published on Letterboxd:
I was looking forward to this movie when it was announced with Sam Rami in the director’s chair and the fact this was the MCU’s first time going into horror territory. This film lived up to exceptions.
Easily the best thing about this movie is Sam Rami. The film has the scale and action resembling the 2000s Spider-Man movies and had his signature gleefully horrific touches mixed in. It was very clear he had huge creative control and I really liked that.
The cast is solid as the characters were complex, interesting, and I could empathize with them. There was also a surprise appearance that had been long speculated that has now been confirmed that I won’t spoil. My only complaints is some of the writing was clunky and the pacing is a bit rushed in some areas, and I was kind of disappointing that we didn't get to explore the Multiverse that much. But overall Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness shows the MCU still has fight in it.
