There's certainly more jokes than the average Marvel film. Wait, let me clarify - there are actually funny jokes in this Marvel film. Even some deadpan comments that made me smirk. Behind all the spiralling sparkles and expositional dialogue there's definitely some heart, and everybody is committed. But it can't escape my "franchise fatigue". How about trying something original with this much money and talent?
Ben sopra la triste media delle recenti uscite Marvel, ma l'inesistente spessore di Kaecilius e il ruolo da idiota di Dormammu, che si fa fregare da un potere che lui stesso dovrebbe padroneggiare, sbilanciano il film. Magnifiche le sequenze di spostamento nel multiverso, meno le influenze buoniste disneyane. Di donne e neri fighi ce ne sono tanti nelle scuderie di Stan Lee, sfruttate quelli. Una buona prova.
He's an enormously unlikable fellow, but movie technology has gotten to right point where his story can be told in a somewhat reasonable fashion. It's a little bit overloaded with borrowing from Inception. Everything moves a bit too quickly, but it's not quite compelling for a second viewing. Just another cookie-cutter Marvel hero.
*1/2. In front of this kind of film, I feel as if I were in an amusement park's attraction. Fun during a couple of minutes and ..... that's all. Tell me that's not American cinema has finally come to! A film made by greedy producers and intended to kids and teenagers. Already forgotten.
It's fine, but I kind of think the character works better on the page than onscreen. There is stuff ripped right out of the old Doctor Strange comics illustrated by Steve Ditko, but when translated into live action they just become a mess of CGI nonsense. In addition, for a film that introduces such high stakes, it feels incredibly small scale. I look forward to the sequel, but hope it works better than this one.
doctor strange was cool as fuck. cumberbatch is not. tilda swinton is not from tibet. stealing the effect from inception is not an excuse to make a film. and making people do circles with their hands to make pretty cgi effects for half the movie is not a replacement for a story.
