Plot Outline:

Brilliant, but arrogant, Dr. Stephen Strange is talented, but is willing to bend in order to make more money. An accident leaves his hands injured - and accident he never truly recovers from. After bottoming out - he hears about an Ancient One - a supposed sorcerer who may be able to finally give him back his life. But once he finds him, he finds the plans for him are much grander. -- Chris Kavan

The story and performances were serviceable, but it's the visuals that stole the show here. Beautiful and strange indeed.

Saw this i gotta say that I was impressed with the movie no doubt but it was not the best this year not even the best marvel movie but it kept your interest and I love that about it I have to say also that I love how it was family friendly and a good escape from the world type of movie let your mind just run away with the movie and forget the rest of the world and it's trouble a good choice for the family or a date just see it

Marvel decides to ape Inception, excising the (attempted) profundity for the studio's customary easy but ultimately witless laughs. Cumberbatch is enjoyable enough as the Hippocratic Tony Stark, whilst Tilda Swinton somewhat steals the show with her warm, child-like, and invariably snarky 'Ancient One'. Rachel McAdams plays the IKEA flatpack for superhero love-interests, and Chiwetel Ejiofor is, once again, playing a character in a perpetual state of moral outrage. All in all, the film can be summarised as 'the lastest Marvel superhero movie', although the special effects team deserve adorations from high and low for their art, creativity, and quality on this production. Maybe even an Oscar...

“Doctor Strange”: introducing new era into MCU

"Doctor Strange,” in my opinion, is Marvel’s first step into the uncharted. Sure, “Guardians of the Galaxy” was a bold undertaking, but the concept of gods and aliens had already been explored in “Thor” and “The Avengers.” “Ant Man” may have given us a glimpse into the Quantum Realm, but at the end of the day, it was little more than a comedic heist film with a taste of “Honey I Shrunk the Kids.”

Helmed by horror director Scott Derrickson, “Doctor Strange” invites us into Marvel’s world of magic and mysticism. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Doctor Stephen Strange, an arrogant neurosurgeon acclaimed worldwide for his medical achievements. After losing the use of his hands in a car accident, Strange desperately searches the globe for anything that will give him back what made him gre...

Strange Days Ahead - MCU Still On the Right Path

Even with Guardians of the Galaxy under their mantle, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen anything quite like Doctor Strange. While it does have plenty of action - Strange is a much more mystical and spiritual experience than the rah-rah Avengers. At times I questioned if I was even watching a Marvel movie at all - and that's not a bad thing. In the end, it will be interesting to see how they integrate magic into the super hero world, but if anyone can pull it off, it's the wizards behind this sprawling epic known as the MCU.

We know right off the bat this is going to be something different when Mads Mikkelson squares off against Tilda Swinton - after beheading a poor librarian. Orange sparks of magic fly and a book written in a strange language is missing a few crucial pages. Porta...

Purple Yellow Red and Blue

Visuals are the main course here, and they really are something special. Opening up Marvel's catalog to Strange and tows' working magic presents an opportunity for the talented effects teams to conjure something more colorful and wholly other than the usual fare of explosions and massive, as-yet-impossible hardware. If you liked Ant-Man's "subatomic" faux-psychedelic sequence, you will probably like this movie even more.
Cumberbatch gives a solid performance of Strange's slow change of character, and holds the American accent reasonably well throughout. Swinton gives off a sense of coiled dignity. The other big names in the flick are more of character pieces, but that doesn't seem to hold them down at all. As with many of Marvel's productions, Doctor Strange keeps the general tone light...
