Doctor Strange 2: “crazy”, “gore”, “a real horror film”… the first ultra-positive opinions on the Marvel film! – Cinema news

 Doctor Strange 2:

As it comes out tomorrow in French theaters, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is already acclaimed by American critics. Discover the first rave reviews from the US press.

The twenty-eighth MCU feature film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness pushes the limits of this cinematic universe by immersing the character played by Benedict Cumberbatch, accompanied by old and new mystical allies, in the madness of the Multiverse through different mind-blowing and dangerous realities.

Director Sam Raimi, to whom we owe the Spider-Man trilogy with Tobey Maguire and many horror classics, was responsible for directing the new adventures of Doctor Strange. Did this alliance between the filmmaker and the Marvel universe spark?

According to American critics, the result is more than positive. Before its cinema release in France on May 4, discover the first reviews from the US press.

Translation: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is totally bonkers and insane. It’s 100% a Sam Raimi movie (which is highly rated), hands down the scariest MCU movie yet. Know as little as possible, your journey through the multiverse will be much more enjoyable.

Translation: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is filled with hugely entertaining sequences, rich characters, and kaleidoscopic, trippy visuals. Xochitl Gomez steals the show. Elizabeth Olsen dominates. Benedict Cumberbatch, superb. In addition, it is a good gateway for novices in the horror genre. With Raimi’s signature.

Translation: Good! Marvel fans finally got their horror movie. Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness is a dark and wildly imaginative creation from the twisted and brilliant mind of Sam Raimi. It fucks the chips. Brush up on your comic book knowledge… Superhero fans will go crazy!

Translation: MARVEL HAS MADE A HORROR FILM! It’s bizarre, scary, and aptly named “Multiverse of Madness.” If you were worried that we wouldn’t feel Sam Raimi’s touch in the film, don’t worry! I can’t imagine a cleaner Sam Raimi movie in the MCU. My genre-loving heart is bursting right now.

Translation: Elizabeth Olsen steals the show in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, one of the MCU’s bloodiest and goriest films to date. There are a few moments that will really shock you in an otherwise solid, special effects-heavy Marvel movie.

Translation: Don’t worry, Sam Raimi fans. DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS dives deep into horror – jumpscares, body horror and a handful of diabolical murders. It fits into the MCU but has Sam Raimi’s deranged creepy campy groovy DNA all the way through. Launch Elizabeth Olsen’s Oscar campaign.

A few slightly more mixed voices also spoke:

Translation: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the weirdest and grossest Marvel movie yet. It’s extremely disjointed – it’s partly done on purpose – so it doesn’t always work but the horror, and especially Wanda, works incredibly well. And wow. What huge surprises.

Translation: #DoctorStrange #MultiverseOfMadness is a real spectacle but we come out with mixed results from this average Marvel. Kicking off the summer movie season, this sequel offers rich visuals and a rambling narrative with some nice surprises. Raimi embracing his horrific roots is a welcome and bold victory.
