Doctor Strange is one of my favourite marvel movies. Yes it’s pretty much Iron Man all over again. But let’s face it, Doctor Stranges strength was in its trippy visuals. The movie also has the enviable none beam in the sky final showdown. Strange beats his foe not just with magic but also his wits.
Some nice little comedic moments layered throughout a run of the mill origin tale, a neutered love story on the side and some Eastern philosophy could have relegated it to mediocre territory, not dissimilar to The Incredible Hulk. But it’s top notch, creative special effects raise it to a higher level of entertainment. Oh and the less said about Benedict Cumberbatch’s American accent the better.
