As a MYSTIC powered, yet human superhero from the world of MARVEL emerges ~ we meet the talented Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), saving his fellow man one intricate brain surgery at a time. When life deals him an excruciating blow, thus changing the life he knows and loves ~ Strange sees no other option than to travel to the other side of the world in search of THE ANCIENT ONE (Tilda Swinton), and her supposed mystic powers of healing, and enlightenment. Caught between his new existence and his past career, Strange must decide if he is going to include his colleague and one-true-love Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) in all of this craziness, while completing his own personal journey to find what this other realm of existence has in store for him…
I give DR. STRANGE a rating of MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN and in 3D!Cumberbatch is superbly cast in this film as Brain Surgeon turned Mystic Superhero Dr. Stephen Strange. And ironically enough, if you pay close attention to his character early on in this film, they give us a sequence that proves Cumberbatch should be the next 007too! Ejiofor is enjoyable to view as well playing Good-guy Mordo for now. And Swinton is definitely on her gam as well, playing the Ancient ruler of this alternative universe, as she has a few tricks up her sleeve too ll. As MARVEL movies go, is DR STRANGE the BEST ONE EVER? Nope, but it is really, really good! Please don’t wait to catch DR STRANGE on your television set either, and you must experience this film ON THE BIG SCREEN in order to catch all of its cinematic nuances and super-awesome special effects. Plus, get ready to experience this films rather untimely humor throughout too ~ giving this film a rather IRON MANesque feel to it too. If you enjoy the world of MARVEL like the rest of the world,then grab your fellow superhero loving friends, as you experience one of the best castings in the world of superheroes yet! And please don’t forget to stay until the very end yet again…as how else will you know where this franchise is headed, if you don’t stay to watch this film paste all the credits, as you sit in your seat until the absolute bitter end J
