The Marvel Cinematic Universe has just exploded after the world premiere of Doctor Strange 2. This movie seems to have captivated audiences and critics alike. There is a sort of electricity in the air. Doctor Strange 2 is the tipping point everyone had been waiting for. The moment is nigh This multiverse has had its last gasp. Now is the time of monsters. Doctor Strange 2 Rotten Tomatoes score is reminiscent of this fact. We think that the movie has inspired an overall positive review but you can take a look at the score and the reviews and judge for yourself.
Doctor Strange Rotten Tomatoes Score
After watching the world premiere the critic’s reviews have poured in and Rotten Tomatoes has reconciled the pre-release score for the film. It is set at 80% on the Tomatometer which is not bad for a Sam Raimi MCU horror movie. We can understand that the movie might have been a little hard to decipher and not as approachable as other MCU projects, but it is a masterpiece in its own right. Let’s take a look at the individual reviews.
“Multiverse of Madness hurtles its characters from one reality to another, shedding the blandness of its opening stretch and giving Raimi, bless him, room to do things his way. As the film unfolds, Raimi’s hiring proves ever more inspired.” On the other hand, Katie Walsh thought that this movie should have been called the Multiverse of Mundanity. Mick LaSalle from San Francisco Chronicle outrightly declared that Multiverse of Madness is an intelligent movie by saying, “Clearly, these superheroes are never going away… However, if all Marvel movies are as smart as “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness,” it won’t matter”
“A summertime sequel that proves way too messy and geeky until it manages to double back around again into pleasurable absurdity”
Without spoiling the movie we have put Doug Jamieson‘s summary of the first act of the movie down below, take a look:-
“The opening act of the film is hurried and featureless, the Marvel tank low on gas and Raimi seemingly stymied by the difficulty of taking the reins of a world so long after its genesis. Benedict Cumberbatch and Wong are back as world-protecting sorcerers, this time trying to figure out what’s to be done about a teenage girl, America (Xochitl Gomez), who’s crashed into their dimension from another. A baddie of some kind is after her, one unknowable enough that Strange figures he needs help cracking the case and once again, sigh, saving the world. Perfunctory and dull, these establishing scenes are the worst the film gets. Not knowing who else to call, Strange turns to Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), the grieving witch we last saw running a failing television network in WandaVision. It’s not bad thinking on Strange’s part, but it nonetheless proves disastrous.”
This was supposed to be the closing act of Phase 4 but the pressure is only rising. We feel the Tomatometer score shows that this is a different movie.
One with a lot of cameos, appearances, and a breakneck pace that will make a fan’s head spin. Marvel and Raimi seem to have decided on overloading us with information. What does this mean for the future of the MCU? We’ll find out when we watch the movie.
