This movie is a mix of genres. There is action, adventure, thriller, comedy, and Sci-Fi. There is one thing this movie gets right all the time and that is reactions to the chaos. This movie explores the multiverse in ways that differs greatly to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness that came out after it. When it then boils down to the reaction of knowing that there is an almost infinite amount of you, drawn across the multiverse based on every possible decision you make – our leads view of such possibility was almost perfect.

The acting and the performances of Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan are Oscar winning. You may be familiar with Yeoh, and wonder who Quan is, he played Short Round in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984).

Now the way the characters are written are in ways anyone will be when facing the idea of the multiverse. Confused, tired and not wanting to be anywhere near the chaos of it all. It was so cool to see someone behave like a human for once on TV. When the lead was asked to choose between the madness of the multiverse and her present life of depression, failed possibilities and loneliness, she choose her present life because even it is not perfect, she seem to have a hold on it.

The movie drops us into the life of Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh) and Waymond Wang (Ke Huy Quan). Their life is that of a couple who are tired of being together and are struggling to keep their laundromat up and running. They are facing IRS foreclosure on their laundromat and then a bombshell drops on Evelyn's lap. The whole universe as we know it is coming to an end. Why? Because a being called Jobu Tupaki. The cool thing about this insanity is watching Evelyn coming close to solving the whole issue and taking the wrong turn at the final moment. Those times made me scream and love the movie so much more.

Jobu Tupaki wants to end the universe for a reason that no-one knows. Waymonnd Alpha (a Waywand from another universe) came to what I want to believe is our universe to meet with our Evelyn and get her to help stop this being. Problem is that Evelyn is one of the many Evelyn’s they have met, with all the others failing. You may wonder why Evelyn is so important, if I tell you that, it will ruin the first half of the movie.

The movie did have a very annoying ending and it rounded up in a way I would not have wanted it to, but in the end the movie is one of those movies that you should see.
