valeria’s review published on Letterboxd:
Can somebody explain to me FOR THE LOVE OF GOD how the fuck does someone like Benedict Cumberbatch even exist? Most of the time I was literally just staring at him in complete awe of… basically everything about him. Just. Wow. He’s gorgeous.
No spoilers, but I loved it. This movie is all that. It’s THAT bitch. It’s what every failed attempt at breaking free from the shackles of the fearsome Marvel formula (No Way Home not included) was working towards. 2021 Marvel projects walked so Multiverse of Madness could run. I sorta wish I would’ve taken an edible before watching it. It was such a wild ride. Most of the visuals were actually quite impressive, but I won’t deny that some could’ve used a bit more work. If this isn’t proof that great things can happen when you just let directors take full control of their own projects, I don’t know what is.
Am I biased? Absolutely. Benedict Cumberbatch could play a lamp and I wouldn’t hesitate to give that shit a 10/10. It is what it is.
Benedict Cumberbatch please break my back.
