Doctor Strange 2016 Finishing, Dr. Doctor Strange 2016 Christine Palmer rushes in to show an x-ray of a patient with a bullet in the brain.

Speeding out of his condo in his Lamborghini Huracan, Strange heads north. Doctor Strange 2016 He calls an assistant to consider about next patients, he only wants difficult interesting cases. Doctor Strange 2016 Distracted, he crashes and the car plunges into the river.

He is airlifted back to his hospital and Christine is there when he awakes, badly hurt, his hands have had to be rebuilt.

She knows all about him and introduces himself to a new reality. Doctor Strange 2016 He begins training and slowly learns to open gates to jump across the world. Doctor Strange 2016 He learns the temple is part of a secret group saving the world from other dimension, multiuniverse enemies. Doctor Strange 2016 While training, Mordo shows him a magic stick, and says the magic tool must choose him. Doctor Strange 2016 A former student, Kaecilius, has stolen a page from a secret book and escaped with three zealots, there is worry he will decipher the page and call in Dormammu from across the universe to take over the world. Doctor Strange 2016 Strange is upset and says he hasn’t come to join their group, only to cure his hands.

On his own, Strange visits the library, he quickly learns how to use a time-shifting pendant, Agamotto, which also enables him to see the missing page from the book. Doctor Strange 2016 Mordo tells him it is forbidden to use time spells as it can cause unforeseen problems.

There are three sanctums, in London, New York and Hong Kong where the group watches out for the world. Doctor Strange 2016 Kaecilius finally deciphers the page and his group attacks the London office, a plain building with a logo window. Doctor Strange 2016 They attack London and when Strange and Mordo try to assist Strange is sent to the New York centre. Doctor Strange 2016 The building is deserted as he wanders the floors looking at various artifacts.

Kaecilius and his group then attack the New York sanctum. Doctor Strange 2016 Strange is able to develop fighting skills on the fly.

Doctor Strange 2016 Strange follows the Ancient One’s spirit in his astral form and they talk overlooking New York City. Doctor Strange 2016 She accepts this is her end and suggests Strange can take over.

Back in the New York centre Strange and Mordo realize Hong Kong is next on Kaecilius’ list. Doctor Strange 2016 They gate over but the Hong Kong Sanctum has been overrun and Dormammu is growing as a nebula from the building , Strange uses Agamotto to partially reverse the process. Doctor Strange 2016 Kaecilius recovers and manages to stun Strange. Doctor Strange 2016 Strange then thinks of something and flies off into the heart of the Dormammu nebula. Doctor Strange 2016 Here he confronts Dormammu and manages to create an infinite loop, Strange gets killed in various ways but is always reset.

    Without giving away too much, Benedict Cumberbatch just kills it. He isone class actor. Cumberbatch rocks as Strange and pulls it off withease. The impressions his portrayal gives us is that he was born toplay the role of the ex-neurosurgeon turned Sorcerer Supreme. Such isthe talent of the lead cast, that it represents just how good the moviewas overall. Every normal movie watcher will love the action, humour,adventure and fantasy throughout the film.

    A solid new character introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe withloads of potential. Cumberbatch solidifies and anchors his role in theMCU as Stephen Strange in a similar fashion to RDJ doing so with TonyStark.

    A must watch! Enjoy!

    This is my review of Doctor Strange (spoiler free)

    **** (4/5)

    SINCE 2014s GUARDIANS of the Galaxy stomped all over the box-officewith it’s over $800 million boot and Ant-Man repeating the same processa year later, the Marvel Cinematic Universe have developed quite aknack for bringing to life virtually unknown origin stories in quite aspectacular fashion and that brilliant record shows that Doctor Strangewill be no exception. However it may be the weirdest and strangestaddition but by no means it is nonetheless an enjoyable addition asthis cognitive story offers manipulative sorcery, clever screenplay,mind-melting action and mind-bending CGI it’s fair to say that thiswill not be forgotten anytime soon. Get the thought out of your headthat you never could see Benedict Cumberbatch in a cape, as he pulls itoff so well along with that and the glorious devil look-a-like goateethat it looks like he was born to play this role and his brilliantperformance shows it. The whole concept here is that this was strangefrom day one and the story written and directed by long time fan andlook-a-like Scott Derrickson using his own vision this origin story isbrilliant, and to put it lightly mind-blowing and is certainly a vastimprovement over his last feature Deliver Us From Evil his vision andhis screenplay are very clever and cognitive as the screenplay alonewill manipulate the mind. In terms of the CGI picture the sorcery ofHarry Potter meets the clever screenplay and the reality defying, worldbuilding dream worlds of Inception and imagine if those two joinedforces and had a baby, well Doctor Strange is that baby weird conceptbut that’s this in a bag.

    It may surprise you to know that the insanity that is this movie startsout ordinary with Dr. Steven Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) working hisnormal shift as a show off neurosurgeon in a hospital along with hiscolleague/life partner Dr. Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams), until heis the victim of a terrible car crash (might this be a lesson to nevertext and drive) and shatters almost every nerve in his hand and has toundergo several procedures in order to get better. Until he finds anelegant solution which is nicely done in this addition he has to go tothe stunning Nepal near the Himalaya mountain range and has to learnthe path to power and the kind of responsibilities it holds. However atsome points he almost gives up on life and sees no more strength tolearn but continues on.

    Naturally some origin stories of this style are terribly rushed and getto the action rather quickly and although at some points this does takea while to settle but with the clever screenplay and brilliant timebending and world building powers it’s set out rather well, grantedthere are a couple of times when some of the scenes are just stucktogether and some take a while to get with the story but who cares whenthe final result and the final battle are so eye achingly impressive,filled with a kaleidoscope of building splits, moving floors and also alevitating cape it’s almost as if he stepped into a dream world but asthe story goes on he realizes that its all too real.

    It’s quite the spectacle.

    The first act is used to just settling into the story and introducingthe many characters played by big international players, and alsotraining with magic which is done in a very intriguing way as theAncient One (Tilda Swinton) shows him the powers of the mind and helooks very impressed as he has gone from a none believer to becoming alearner – this scene is both inventive and has a colourful kaleidoscopewhich looks amazing in 3D. The second and third acts are when the worldliterally turns upside down for Doctor Strange as he has to faceKaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen) and a great and powerful entity that heserves but he learns that his power is stronger than he thinks.Interestingly Kaecilius gives Doctor Strange some advice and also ashock which we won’t spoil. During the second act there is a beautifultraining lesson with Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) – this is brilliantlydone with some very inventive CGI that shows the way he moves lookinglike he is flying. At one point there is a battle that has never beenseen before in any film of this style and that is an astral projectionbattle between Strange and Lucian (Scott Adkins), which is just a gobsmacking few minutes during the battle, and while they are at it theyscare Christine this adds a bit of comedy to the scene. The cleverscreenplay also adds some hilarious moments where they are neededproving that the director can make a serious film with insane CGI andeven add some comedy to the final production.

    Doctor Strange may be one of the strangest and possibly the most insaneaddition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe but is still nonethelessentertaining and this proves that Marvel are keeping a better recordwith kick-ass origin stories, that are a spectacular CGI f**kathon andif the end result is this entertaining then that is a record that shallcontinue for decades, much better than the record currently obtained bythe DCEU who at the moment need a miracle to overcome the disastrousfilms they’ve made lately. Easily one of the best films this year andshall be remembered for ages and who knows may even repeat thebox-office record set by Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man. This is astrange world.

    VERDICT: The Marvel Cinematic Universe shines again with manipulativesorcery and cognitive storytelling as this may be the strangestaddition but still delivers some kick-ass entertainment.

    8/10 powerfully manipulative.

  3. Gary Freeman says:

    Another MCU movie that the bandwagon is giving stellar reviews to eventhough it sucks.

    The movie follows the same basic formula as all of the other MCUmovies. There’s quips, there’s jokes, there’s a McGuffin, there’s a1-dimensional villain.

    Movie’s sole purpose is another lead-up to the next Avengers. Themystical artifact Strange uses turns out to be an Infinity Stone.”Shocking”. If I had a dollar for every time Marvel did something thattook me by surprise, I’d be flat broke, because you can see this stuffcoming from a mile away.

    I swear, I almost walked out when I heard the wifi password joke. Notto mention the stupid cape being alive so they have more comedy in themovie. Comedy? My mistake, I meant cringe.

    Marvel Movies have a tendency to love to have the hero getting betrayedby someone they thought an ally. Baron Mordo is a friend of Strange andhis group in the movie. He’s a villain in the comics. Anyone knows whatis coming from a mile away. He doesn’t go full bad guy in this one, butexpect him to be full on evil in the sequel.

    Another thing nearly every single MCU movie does is the fake-out death.A character will die and then in the next movie or even just in thepost-credit scene of the movie they died in they’ll pop up alive andwell. Seriously, go back and look. Wong dies in this movie and Strangejust reverses time and brings him back. The only character I think hasstayed dead is Quicksilver. And there were rumors he was going to popup alive and well somehow in the New Avengers scene at the end of Ageof Ultron.

    The warped city stuff isn’t as revolutionary is people claim.Considering Inception did it 6 years ago and that horrible Devil MayCry reboot did something similar as well.

    Movie is getting stellar reviews, which doesn’t mean much. At thispoint Marvel Studios could just release a 2 hour movie that is just themain character sipping a glass of tea while sniffing a dog turd and itwould still get critical acclaim.

    You know why it’s so freaking hard to enjoy Marvel movies these days?When everyone is on the bandwagon and everyone attacks you if you havea different opinion, and when the movies are praised for being”amazing” when in reality they’re just actually “just okay” or only”halfway decent”, it makes them movies feel worse to me because whenthey don’t live up to what critics and the fanboys say it is.

    Like Civil War this year. Everyone called it a “Masterpiece.” Then Isaw it and the whole movie only functioned because of the gaping plotholes. But if you point out said plot holes you get vilified.

    I think this movie might be the last MCU movie I bother seeing. Theyall feel the same, follow the same formula, and the fanboys make goingto see them insufferable. Maybe Spider-man: Homecoming could be good,but since they have Vulture, Shocker, and Tinkerer (3 1- dimensionalvillains) as the villains of the film, it looks like the movie isalready setting up to be the same movie with different characters we’veseen about 15 times now. Just watch, I bet that the plot ends up beingVulture trying to steal a priceless artifact and Spidey has to keep itfrom him, and then in the post-credit scene it’s revealed to be anInfinity Stone so they can do another “Look, look, shareduniverse,everything tied together” moment that are tired at this point.

    Why did I give it a 1? I’d have given it a five, but the over-hypednonsense from critics and the Marvel fanboys just makes these moviesfeel worse than they actually are to me. A mediocre movie ends upfeeling like complete trash when everyone is calling it one of the bestmovies ever and then you see it and it’s just “kind of sort of okay”Especially when the only thing I thought was good in the movie was thespecial effects. I also enjoyed the special effects in the Transformersseries, but as we all know, those movies suck, and no amount of greatspecial effects will save a crap movie.

    Movie also shows the problems the MCU will be facing soon. Dr. Strangeis a D-list character at best. After they lose Iron Man, Cap, Hulk,Widow, Thor, Nick Fury, and the other characters that the MCU was builton, they’ll only have Spider-man and a bunch of C and D-listers holdingtheir shared universe together.

  4. Rimsa41 from Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina says:

    It’s been a long way since the inception of MCU back in 2008. Back inthose days not so many people believed in this project. Creating aconcept of a shared universe with characters not that familiar togeneral audience was considered as a doom from the start. But here weare now, 8 years later (damn, time flies so fast), and we’re gettingDoctor Strange film. And what a brilliant film it is. You know thatfeeling when you walk out out theater so satisfied and you can’t stopthinking about the film, and you have the urge to watch it again? Thatis how I feel. Benedict Cumberbatch is Doctor Strange incarnate. I knowthe movie was just released, but I can’t imagine anyone else playingthe titular character. The rest of the amazing cast is also great.Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams and Benedict Wong areall great as supporting characters. Mads Mikkelsen as the antagonistmay not be Joker-level of villain, but he is good enough and you willmostly be satisfied. Even my man Boyka is there, giving additionaldiscomfort to our hero. One can argue that the story is a ”formulaic”and not masterfully executed. Fine, I have to agree in a way, but thismovie is all about bringing those Steve Ditko comic book visuals tolife. And they were breathtaking and majestic. They alone are worth theticket price. Such and amazing and well crafted achievement. You won’tbe able to take your eyes off screen, especially once the finalshowdown begins. Definitely a must see movie.

    In the end, I wanna thank Marvel Studios for giving us such an amazingfranchise. Sure, not all of the movies are great, but you have torespect their work. Bring it on Phase 3.

  5. Grimmers97 from United Kingdom says:

    In a year with 5 other comic book movies being released, i guess youcould say that making Doctor Strange seem different from the otherswould be quite a feat for Marvel Studios to pull off. But, surprisesurprise… they do. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the stubborn,egotistical neurosurgeon whose personal tragedy leads him to join alegion of sorcerers and learn the complexities of the mystic arts.Although fans of the Sherlock series will say otherwise, this is thecharacter that the guy was born to portray. He perfectly plays a manwho develops from being overly cocky to being smart with his skills andknowledge. In terms of acting, positive things can be said about TildaSwinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor, they ooze their individual personas likethey aren’t even playing a role. Rachel McAdams and Benedict Wong arealso great but like plenty of Marvel’s smaller characters, they justdon’t get that much screen time.

    The problem with screen time also affects Mads Mikkelson’s villaincharacter as well. He isn’t underdeveloped though, he just isn’t inmany scenes. The screen time problem with characters is something thatcould be forgiven though. The movie has a run time of 130 minutes anduses it very well. There is no filler whatsoever. Every scenes has apoint. Whether its developing a character, advancing the plot or justmaking you laugh, director Scott Derickson has filled scenes withenough of every variable to get any viewer hooked. The movie even hassome emotional moments too. A scene with Swinton and Cumberbatch havinga quiet conversation while lightning crackles in a sky of drifting snowis one of the best shot scenes of this year… i’m not joking.

    Two of Marvel’s hallmarks, action and humour get a new lease of life inthis movie. The insane, trippy dimension scenes are a love letter toSteve Ditko’s iconic comic panels. Buildings twist out of shape, panesof glass ripple and entire street blocks fold in on themselves,creating a crazy CGI playground for characters to square of in. ILM andMarvel wonderfully visualise everything that make this character’s loreunique. Relics, spells and locations all look amazing. If I was togripe about visuals, i would mention the green screen. It is a bit hazyin some areas.

    All in all, Marvel has done well with Doctor Strange. Origin storiescan be clichéd and boring, but the trick is to do something different.Marvel have a formula that they use in not only their origin storiesbut all of their solo movies. However, it isn’t specific and despitewhat people might say, that loose formula allows for some creativity.Guardians of the Galaxy and the Captain America sequels are proof ofthat. Roll on more Doctor Strange!

    P.S: There are two credits scenes. Both teasing future movies, one ofthem being a not yet confirmed Doctor Strange sequel.

    I had fun seeing this movie. It’s an overall good popcorn flick. But ifyou are, as i’am, a little demanding about movies, you’ll feel in theend that they gave a great amount of attention to the digital/specialeffects aspect of the movie and very little to the screenplay. In theend, if you’re one of those weirdos who stay and watch the credits outof respect for the crew who made the movie possible, you’ll notice thatdigital, cgi and special effects have huge teams of dozens of computergeeks who master an art that fills 90% of today’s action movies. That’ssaying a whole lot of the movies industry these days.

    The movie has a relaxed tone to it, almost like Green Lantern. Theprotagonist is egocentric and stubborn. His confidence is oftenmistaken for arrogance. The jokes are of bad taste. The dialogues arelight and deprived of any seriousness. Even in the event of an eminentapocalypse, Dr. Strange manages to throw his puns and bad jokes. Themultiverse of presented almost as a gratuitous event, a mundane truthaccessible to anyone of travels to Kathmandu. There’s no secret, noeffort to achieve it. You only need to knock at their door, and theAncient One will teach you right away the secrets of the astral plane.There’s no sense of urgency, like for instance the urgency that drivesNeo to find the truth about the Matrix and his decision to swallow thered pill.

    This plot is old and recycled. It takes the Hero’s Journey myth and putit to practice. And we’ve seen it a thousand before: Talented yet selfcentered person is set to trial and loses his talent/strength. Seekingredemption, finds a tutor. The tutor teaches humility and new foundpower. An enemy emerges. Tutor dies in fight. Apprentice seeks revenge,wins battle, takes the tutor’s position. More or less, this formula isold and we all know it.This movie is academic in this sense. But itsomehow works. It’s light mood dialogues and absence of seriousnessmakes it digestible.

    Well… at least until the last battle. Dormammu (one of my favoritemarvel villains) is so poorly portrayed. Worst only Galactus inFantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer. And the battle, the solutionfound by Dr.Strange to defeat Dormammu makes absolutely no sense. TheEye of Agamoto controls time in a dimension where time exists, but thethe Dark Dimension of Dormammu there’s no such thing as Time. So, howcould the Eye even work in a dimension where the concept of time doesnot exist. How did even Dormammu succumbed to a concept to which he wasnot captive of of? Did the Eye of Agamoto invented time in the DarkDimension? Of course not. It’s just a bad plot decision. It’s simplylazy writing.

    The way they confuse so many time the realm of metaphysics with hardscience like quantum mechanics, is astonishing. Like they were tryingto mask the comic book nature of Dr. Strange (a sorcerer who is able totravel between dimensions with his magical powers) with quantum physicsWikipedia vocabulary. The confusing and unnecessary discussion betweenStrange and the Ancient One about the nature of the Multiverse, showsan attempt to minimize the “magic” of movie and make it sound more …”scientific”. Dr. Strange, in the book, is a magical entity. His powersare far beyond known science as he can do things modern science findsimpossible. So the attempt to rationalize such character is in myopinion a big mistake.

    Overall, is an entertaining movie, with cool special effects, pleasantacting and light atmosphere. Good Saturday evening flick. Don’t expectlots of brains in it.

    Way back when I first heard that Doctor Strange was being brought tothe screen I was a bit worried. How could they translate the complexityof character and his true coolness but stay away from the cheeseballstuff? Dress a guy up like the books and remain true to the seriousnessof the character? Well, they managed to not only pull it off butdeliver one of the best hero origin films ever made.

    The director knew that you had to establish and truly care about thecharacter. Making it grounded but still trippy really helps give it aflavor unlike any other comic adaptation. The Harry Potter meets IronMan meets Ant-Man flavor was there yet it all feels unique. The MCUmagic is there literally. Everything established in the Captain Americafilms and both Avengers pays dividends in a way here. The universe hasbeen established wonderfully and this film does the best job to dateplaying in that universe. Everything and every scene packs some sort ofpunch and resonates with true style and heart. They really let theaction flow but also allow for key development of the overall story andover concept. This also allows them to probe deeper into thecharacter’s personalities. ALL the characters even the ones withsmaller roles get to shine. This heightens the tension, so oftenmissing from lesser comic-book movies, and adds real weight to theaction sequences which are thrilling and often mesmerizing. Add morethan a dash of thriller aspects and a few new characters that stealevery scene that they appear in.

    I honestly can’t think of one way to improve this film. The result is amovie that’s just flat out exceptional and that honestly delivers thebest visuals I’ve ever seen in a movie.

    Wow! DOCTOR STRANGE is an incredible mindtrip. Its VFX alone makesChristopher Nolan’s ‘Inception’ look like some kind of beta test. Andthis film is so much fun, it’s hilarious, it’s got some of the mostcomplex, most elaborate action sequences I’ve seen all year, and Ican’t stop geekin’ out about the cloak of levitation. This is BenedictCumberbatch making his grand entrance into the Marvel CinematicUniverse.

    Directed by Scott Derrickson who helped provide the script, DOCTORSTRANGE is about a successful, talented, arrogant neurosurgeon, DoctorStephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Suddenly, a tragic car accidentleaves Strange’s hands permanently damaged, which means he can nolonger perform surgery. After trying western medicine, he hears of aman who was badly injured and then got miraculously healed, this leadsStrange to the secrets of a hidden world of alternate dimensions. Underthe teaching and guidance of the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) Strangeunleashes metaphysical abilities and ultimately takes on theresponsibility of protecting earth from mystical threats.

    Created by Marvel’s legendary artist, Steve Ditko, the character DoctorStrange is a very unique one because he’s not a product of some kind oftechnological armor, he’s not a nordic god nor a space alien, and hedoesn’t get his powers from super serum nor gamma rays, and so kudos toMarvel Studios for taking a chance on this one of a kind characterbecause it makes for an unbelievably fantastic origin story on screenthat’s just different from the rest of the bunch that Marvel hasintroduced to us so far. And there’s just something refreshing aboutthat.

    What a great cast, they could not have picked a better lead star,Benedict Cumberbatch knocks it out of the park. Whenever Strange gets abit cocky, you can see a little bit of Cumberbatch’s Sherlock attitudekicking in there. But Strange is more quick to sensibility whereasSherlock would still have to put them all through his reasoningfilters. And Cumberbatch’s sense of humor is absolutely sharp. There’sa ton of funny moments in this film but they never take away from theproblem at hand or what Strange has to tackle at that very moment.

    I’m Asian but I’m not bothered by Tilda Swinton playing the AncientOne, I understand this is supposedly the film’s biggest controversy butthe fact of the matter is that once you’ve seen DOCTOR STRANGE, you’llunderstand why Tilda is perfect in this role. The woman is animpeccable actress and she exudes the specific wisdom needed for thisbecause in many ways, when you deal with a monastery-like setting wherepeople learn martial art and philosophies about self- control, theexpectation is that the master would preach parables, analogies, ormetaphors in bestowing that wisdom and Tilda does it with ease likeDavid Carradine’s Kwai Chang Caine from the old “Kung Fu” series.

    Mads Mikkelsen’s Kaecilius, I gotta say, is not my favorite villain inMCU, I think Mikkelsen does a fine job but the character just doesn’tland for me. But I gotta give Scott Derrickson and his co-writers muchcredit for introducing as many elements as they could from DoctorStrange comic books including Dormammu, and so those who watch the filmand may be confused by the jargons, like the Eye of Agamotto, can go tothe comic books and discover why it is important to include those in aDoctor Strange movie along with the manipulation of space, energy andtime which is also another big deal. And that leads me to what I thinkis the film’s most amazing appeal,.. seeing buildings bend over onitself, characters teleporting, and the insane things that the cloak oflevitation can do because it carries its own consciousness. It reallydoesn’t get more of a movie magic than DOCTOR STRANGE.

    I was lucky enough to be among the press-junket last Wednesday towitness this movie! I usually rate movies by different aspects, buti’ll also answer some questions my friends had about this film which Ialso had myself!

    Acting (10/10): This cast is amazing! They embody their charactersinstead of trying to act like the character. Benedict as Dr. Strangewas a portrayal right out of the comics! Tilda as the ancient onekilled it!

    Action (10/10): Wow! I could argue the action in this movie being onpar with the scenes in civil war. It was so incredible watching thisscenes with million pieces moving yet focus sing on the maincharacters. Wide angles, long shots and great choreography. what elsedo you want?

    Story(8/10) : This movie had a solid story and you believed what, howand why things were going on! Villain was good and actually a memorableone for once(stab, you’re welcome dc fans). It was not flawless though.The pace kind of slows down before the final act which was unnecessary!

    Cinematography/VFX 10/10: The images in this film blew my mind! Thereis a scene in the beginning where the ancient one shows Dr strange “themagic” and it is great! Some serious mind-bending stuff combined withgreat visuals to let it manifest itself to the audience. Most artisticmovie yet of marvel.

    Overall, i’d give this movie an 8.5. Though this isn’t THE best marvelmovie, it is truly one of best out there. After the disappointing Jasonborne, jack reach er etc. we finally have a movie that lives up to thehype! GO Watch this movie in Max 3d if possible, because it is worth itfor once!

    Some questions that my friends asked:

    “Is this better than civil war?” – Well visual-wise on par, butstory-wise civil war is better for many reasons including the fact thatcivil war had a lot of background information to work with. This wasmore of a standardized origin film.

    “Is there a post-credit scene?” – Ah yes sir! Apparently there are two,but we got to see only 1.

    “Is this the most mind-boggling thing you’ve ever seen on screen?” -Ehm yes and no. Yes, because the effects were amazing and things I’venever seen before. No, nothing was so mind-blowing that it made methink different of the world or something.

    After seeing this movie, and then seeing the other reviews for itonline, I felt the need to write my opinion in order to share why somedid not like it and why I feel it could have been far better underdifferent direction.

    First of all, I generally like Marvel’s films. They manage to put outnew stories virtually every year and incorporate new characters intotheir ensemble. They’ve also mastered the art of masking each film asoriginal and fresh, and for the most part it’s just a fun time at thecinema. But the problem is that eventually, while you will always beable to pick new heroes from the massive wealth Marvel has createdthrough comics, the formula, the acting, the uninspired scripts andclassic gimmicks will become stagnant and even begin to bore theaudience.

    I wanted to like Doctor Strange, and I, too, was convinced by thetrailers that it would be captivating and interesting and thought-provoking. But twenty minutes into the movie and I could already tellhow this was probably going to go.

    The acting was to be expected given the cast they chose, but nothingstood out. Benedict Cumberbatch played a convincing Doctor Strange, buthis character was completely static – I felt no indication that he hadchanged in the slightest by the end of the film (which is what thefilmmakers were lazily trying to portray), and I couldn’t even figureout why he suddenly wanted to fight the enemy in the first place. Therest of the characters were poorly fleshed out, and I found myselfcaring little for any of them, a phenomenon that did not occur when Iwatched “Iron Man” or “Guardians of the Galaxy”. The jokes andwise-cracks felt especially childish this time around, and even out ofplace in the face of sincerely substantial ideas such as alternatedimensions and the fabric of time and space. Additionally, the pacesimply felt rushed and awkward, and like I said before, I just couldn’tfind myself caring for any of the one- dimensional, superficialcharacters.

    The plot was formulaic, which is typical and expected of Marvel; herosuddenly has powers, hero is confronted by conflict larger thanhimself, hero acts selflessly to save the day and the girl, heroreturns and the film ends with some good old fashioned comic relief(Wang laughing, in this case). Normally I could enjoy this, butcombined with the tepid acting, shallow characters and strange pacing,the whole plot and film just felt… tired. Even with the great visuals(which were truly impressive and to the benefit of the movie), I simplydidn’t enjoy it. I wanted more, a more interesting script that had atleast a couple memorable or provocative lines rather than none, astronger character arc, a better and more menacing villain (spoilersaside, the final confrontation was COMPLETELY underwhelming and mildlyridiculous), and, all-in-all, a more enticing movie.

    I really think “Doctor Strange” could have been a lot better of a film,but I feel like the filmmakers were just flat-out lazy this timearound. While I do recognize the cash-cow that is Marvel, I just hopethis isn’t the beginning of the end for their good movies, movies withat least a little bit of substance. They still plan to cram over adozen heroes into Infinity War, and if as little heart and care is putinto it as was put into this one, it could be a very bad, shallow,exhausted film.

    3.5/10 for great visuals and a relatively coherent plot.
