DOCTOR STRANGE: Multiverse of Madness is, all in all, an okay but enjoyable film that lacked much to set it apart from any other Marvel entry. A film that actually loses the plot at the most important time (Act 2) and kind of drags along, as well as feeling rather disjointed and too ambitious at times.
Establishing itself as an unintentional homage to Hogwarts’ late headmaster, Fantastic Beasts 3 miraculously survives a raging storm of critical reception previously known for having demolished many other films. This is no stroke of brilliance or anything but it definitely gets the job done when compared to its disastrous prequel.
I’ll give the movie credit where it’s due. Sonic The Hedgehog 2 was a pretty decent sequel. However, the film was lacking an explanation throughout because of focusing on the unnecessary human elements. It did enough to please the crowd but didn’t stress the extent of its power enough for the audience to become memorable.
The only way this movie makes sense is if you have no problem waiting an hour for the inciting incident. Otherwise, it gets very repetitive.
Well, here we go again. Apart from the first two Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, Sony has proved to be a bad studio for Comic Book Movies. And Morbius is unfortunately another example of that.
SS Rajamouli is an iconic director who wisely blends the right human emotions, drama as well as extravagant grandeur in the right proportion. It’s always his screenplay that lets his movies down even if it has plenty of over-the-top action sequences. Just like Baahubali 2, RRR suffers the same fate.
The Lost City was good entertainment but it does not offer anything new to the genre nor does it even try to. The plot about finding a hidden treasure has been done many times before and this one doesn’t even get to par with any of those until the last act. Although, it’s the cast and chemistry which keep it afloat.
The trailer, unfortunately, gave away too much of the plot and the film itself falls flat on its objective. It was an idea that had potential but wasn’t executed very well. If Bachchan Pandey only wanted to be a mass entertainer, then it achieves that but it could’ve been so much more.
The trailers cover pretty much all the best scenes of The Adam Project. Therefore, if you want to see how a particular plot moves from point A to point Z, then this film is for you.
Arguably, the second greatest comic book film of all time, The Batman, is everything you expect in a Batman film and so much more. From the direction to the score, to the cinematography and the acting, this is truly a masterstroke play from the ever great Matt Reeves.
