Since I'm a huge Marvel fan, my opinion might be a little biased... Just a little...

I loved the path Marvel took for this movie. It wasn't the feelgood thriller that you normally see, but instead, this movie had a more horror backdrop that gave me a few jump scares and made my heart race.

Wanda has gone completely bonkers trying to find a way to see her children again. Although her children are not real in this universe, they are in others. In order to travel to those other places, Wanda needs to absorb the powers of a young girl named America Chavez, but Doctor Strange cannot let that happen as there is a good chance Wanda will rip open the multiverse and destroy everyone and everything in the process. The whole movie is based around the fight between Strange and Wanda, but only toward then end, they learn they must play to Wanda's humanity and show her the hurt she is creating.

This was an epic story with some wonderful plot twists, character from other universes and zombie Strange when he possesses the body of an already dead Doctor Strange from another universe. Don't ask, you will have to watch the movie to figure out what I'm talking about.

A lot of the What If... story lines come into play, so make sure you watch that series on Disney+ before watching this movie so you can see the comparisons.

My family had a wonderful time watching this adventure in theaters. Loved it!
