A sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, was released in 2022.


Jan (Age 12): ★★★1/5

" To be honest, I didn't really like this film. The story was good, but the fight scenes, and the enemies (who the sorcerers were fighting), weren't entertaining to watch. The zealots were stranger then Doctor Strange, they look like they have a black eye, on both of their eyes. They were creepy...

Strange himself was a good character played by a great actor, but Murdo, the Ancient One, and Christine were mid. Wong was kinda funny, I liked him. Dormammu was weird, I think he was meant to be like that, a classic villain; really big, deep voice, and a lot of power. This was boring.

Strange's paralyzed hands was a good touch, and I think it came along nicely, as he arrived at Kamar-Taj.

Overall a mediocre movie, I am looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, hopefully it's better."
