Running a bit behind on movie reviews, but we are finally seeing more in the theaters. Part of the whole Marvel gang, Dr. Strange - Multiverse of Madness, was extremely entertaining on the super big screen. Benedict Cumberbatch is always darn good. Elizabeth Olsen, with those big eyes and innocent face, can be so evil as The Scarlett Witch.
The effects are very cool. The fight scenes (and there's a lot of them) are well choreographed. Keeping track of time and space is tricky and that's the point of the multiverse. I can't give you a coherent plot line.
Dr. Strange does encounter a young teenager who does not know her own powers. She does know she zips through time, but can't seem to control it, but she's being chased by a higher being who wishes to capture and harness her strengths. Of course, only Dr. Strange and his whole group of mystical spirit beings could be the folks to save her. So we zoom through portals. We ponder difficulties. We try to understand how Wanda/Scarlett Witch can be conquered.
The two hour movie goes by quick enough and Ray and I were entertained. There is a teaser trailer during final credits - hint , there's Charlize Theron....say what? We do come out and say WTF? But it's fun and for five dollars, I'm happy.
It's Madness, I tell you.....Madness.
