A movie review by moviereviewsetc.com
Dr Strange is a fantasy movie about a disgraced cocky surgeon who lost his ability to do specialized surgery after he had a car accident. With his ability to do surgery gone, he traveled to the mountains of the Himalayas to get back his surgical powers but instead become a powerful sorcerer under the tutelage of a mystic known as the Ancient One.
Like most fantasy movies nowadays, Dr Strange visuals are very polish and visually appealing. The story revolves on metaphysics where the visuals are magnificent although some of the fight scenes that went on too long and could have been edited better. The movie maybe a standard comic fare but the story and visuals made up for a good comic fare.
Although the movie is from Marvel (seems like Marvel movies are all sequels) and originally a comic book character, it is an original which I think will turn into a mega franchise of numerous sequels. It has an original story with a plot that is somewhat complicated but easy to follow. The Dr Strange character is well developed with no gaping holes, what became of him is explained in simple terms as the movie progressed.
This movie is great if you are into comic fare, a comic movie with great story, great plot and great visual effects. Tilda Swinston is superb, the villain characters are worthy as villains but not too crazy. Some humor is thrown in but the few comical scenes that are supposed to be funny ended up cheesy. It is a fantastic superhero movie.
