Our Review

Dr. Stephen Vincent Strange is a brilliant surgeon who is also a smug, egomaniacal, self-centered jerk who, it just so happens, has an affinity for powerful magic. After a terrific car crash that left him unable to do the work he has always done, Dr. Strange goes on a journey to find The Ancient One, who can help him heal his hands and get back to doing what he loves, surgery and making money. Things don’t always go as planned, especially in the Marvel Universe. Strange learns that magic is real, infinite universes are real and he is a natural at all of it.

A fallen pupil of The Ancient One has stolen a powerful spell that will if he is able to bring it to fruition, mean the destruction of the universe as we know it. Dr. Strange becomes the unwitting savior of the universe. Universes? Universi? Anyway, he does battle with the evil powers that be in a special effects blow out of an adventure.

This movie is well written, well acted, and the effects are, well, exactly what you would expect from a Marvel Studio blockbuster. Amazing! Especially the effects in this movie, they are actually mind-bending and unbelievable. Benedict Cumberbatch was a perfect choice for Dr. Strange, who, if you didn’t know, is actually one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe, possibly the most powerful.
This is an excellent movie, it has all the trademarks of a Marvel Studio movie, great action, dialog, banter, character development, special effects and, of course, Stan Lee.
 
Get it, it’s absolutely worth it!
