Doctor Strange arrives at a critical time for Marvel when the MCU is entering its final act for the recent phrase. The movie comes into an uncharted territory; it’s Marvel’s first step into the more mystical corners of their immense universe.

After 13 movies, Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) starts to lose its heat. At this point, the MCU franchise is just as similar as a menu of your favorite restaurant. You know what you like, and you’ll have more of that. As innovative as these movies are, and as groundbreaking as they have been in setting the tone for modern blockbuster moviemaking, it would be very surprising if more than two or three of these films are remembered in a few decades.

Doctor Strange movie is led by Benedict Cumberbatch; despite his charm, he is still untested as a leading man in a franchise picture (even if he has done a good job in Sherlock Homes series). The doubt is there, but Cumberbatch turns out to be one of the best things about Doctor Strange. His arc is the most fleshed out, and although he very nearly blows it early on in the film. He manages to pull off making a detestable central character someone we can get behind.

Doctor Stephen Strange is not a likeable man, he’s cocky if you need clarity. Then, his expensive Lamborghini careened off a cliff with him in it. The crash took from him his hands along with his surgery talents that he’s cocky about. Strange became worthless, and he slipped down the hill with lightspeed. After a series of events, Strange travels to Nepal, where he meets a mysterious being known as The Ancient One. This is when the movie finally steps into gear. Strange gets his own training montage, but instead of Tony Stark faffing around in his basement or Ant Man screaming in a bathtub, he gets stranded on Mount Everest.

Doctor Strange full movie never really escapes from the shadow of MCU franchise no matter how hard the moviemaking crew try. The movie still falls into the same old traps that have got the better of so many Marvel movies before it. The most glaring of these shortcomings is another lackluster villain. Once again, the Marvel villain is revealed to be nothing but a henchman to a bigger foe. Such a waste of Mads Mikkelsen’s talent. His character, Kaecillius, is the leader of a group of rebel zealots planning to unleash terrible, otherworldly forces on Earth.

Not only the plot but also the soundtrack follows the wrong path of other Marvel movies that is a complete ignore of the importance of having good theme music. The only MCU movies that gave the music the respect that it deserves is Iron Man 3 and Avengers. In Doctor Strange movie, composer Michael Giacchino recycles his themes from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the Star Trek movies.

Doctor Strange movie could have been the trippy, psychedelic adventure it always promised to be if there was more care putting into the staggering and the characters.

    The space-and-time warping and mirrored realities in Doctor Strange full movie are a blast. They’re inventive enough that they awaken wonder, provoking that delicious question: How did they do that?

  • elicia summerfield

    Doctor Strange movie doesn’t always make sense — but so what? It’s a mind-blowing special-effects extravaganza, and the most exciting comic-book flick since Deadpool 2016 movie.

    Marvel has definitely revolutionised the Visuals as its trippy , Jaw dropping and weird . The biggest issue with the movie is that it had way too much exposition. A must see movie in 3D for full experience

    Just saw it in 3D, because it was the showing that wasn’t sold out and was at the time I wanted to see a movie, after my eyes got used to the 3D effects it was fine, I liked Doctor Strange movie , it was different & fun, the actors were all great, did get the feeling there was a whole lotta cultural appropriation going on tho. Not entirely sure I’d be into another Doctor Strange movie , but it was enjoyable.

    Sitting through Doctor Strange full movie was a fantastic experience. Marvel brings to the screen a new superhero it has never evoked before and it doesn’t disappoint at all. The story of the arrogant neurosurgeon turned into a mystical superhero might sound cliché, but with strong performances from Benedict Cumberbatch

  • yadiranunes

    Doctor Strange movie yet again shows how Marvel Studios has been taking some of their most bizarre comic book characters and turning them into great movies. Doctor Strange movie has good writing with enough serious notes while still full of laughs.

    Benedict Cumberbatch’s days as a surgeon are ruined, leading him to spiritual training in the Far East and a contest between good and evil forces. Starts well. But then becomes bogs down in mumbo jumbo and set piece fights. The special effects are impressive and the cast put in good performances
