Lacks the heart of the MCU’s previous multiversal cross-over movie, but it does have some stunning imagery plus Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen do a lot to hold your attention even when the plot doesn’t really exist to do so otherwise.

It's eye candy all the way, but who wants a 19-course all-candy dinner? The movie is more numbing than stimulating.

So great to see Sam Raimi, the director of the first Spider-man series with Tobey Maquire, back at the helm of a superhero film and he puts his trademark eye for pacing and character development on full display.

Somewhere in the multiverse, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is terrific. In a different realm, it's terrible. Here in our dimension, the 28th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe teeters and twirls in the middle.

It goes through universes where it becomes terribly dull, hackneyed, without any significant surprises on the mystical side. [Full review in Spanish]

The overlapping piece of the Venn diagram of Raimi aficionados and MCU fans will be happy. And Raimi doesn’t save or destroy the MCU, so Disney is happy, too.

the tale translates poorly to the big screen, even with the filmmaker working overtime to inject his raucous appetite for horror into what still needs to be a PG-13 crowd-pleaser.

In addition to a couple of hours of straightforward fun, the only thing the film leaves us with is the desire to inhabit a universe in which Marvel adaptations were self-contained pieces.

A napkin gets slid Kevin Feige’s way. On it is written, “Let Raimi Be Raimi.”

So nice of Wanda to make room for Doctor Strange in this Scarlet Witch movie

On the surface, Multiverse of Madness is a notable step up from the first film. But the momentum doesn’t hold throughout.

As hollow as "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" can ring, it offers enough grandiose spectacle to get lost in. Being able to get lost in its story as well might have made for a more compelling film.

Instead of restraining a filmmaker to stick to the status quo, "Multiverse of Madness" allows Raimi to let his freak flag fly to a significant degree. He delivers the goods. Now was that so hard, Mr. Feige?

If Marvel directors are often merely first among hired hands... Raimi is allowed a creative signature, delivering a family-friendly take on the chills that first made his name with 1981 cult favourite The Evil Dead.

There is very little Madness in this Multiverse.

While the latest adventure of the fan-favorite sorcerer delivers some incredible highlights, the final product leaves more questions than answers.

The result is less a fully realized story than a stopgap turning pages to bridge past and future. The fun is thus had from tone and style.

The curl is already so curled... [but] it can be enjoyed as a fun toy. [Full review in Spanish]

Director Sam Raimi works his magic by giving the audience an entertaining multiverse saga by packaging it smartly with the elements that he believes can cast a spell on them, irrespective of their love for the MCU.

While the film, unfortunately, avoids becoming a fully-fledged horror film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness redefines the globetrotting adventure by jumping from globe to globe in an action-packed thrill ride.
