By now, I am certain that pretty much EVERY HUMAN BEING is going to see Doctor Strange this week. So there is nothing I can say to convince you this film is horrible. Why? Because it is AMAZING!
Brief Summary: Doctor Stephen Strange is one of the best, if not the best neurosurgeons in the world, but after an accident he loses his ability to perform surgeries. Spiritually fractured over the loss of his very rich, narcissistic lifestyle, he travels to Nepal where he is found by The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), whom introduces him to the astro-worlds of MAGIC! Proceed to my review!
For me Swinton, stole the show by making wisdom and quick-wit the coolest thing you can ever attain. She is smooth throughout every scene. Swinton goes “toe to toe” with Strange’s, at times, bad attitude to become his eventual guide/ guru for hire. Every scene The Ancient One is in makes you want to know her more, and also ask Oprah if she could be featured on OWN. Swinton’s presence is magnetic, along with Cumberbatch’s Strange. while the rest of the cast is solid in marking their roles throughout the film but not marking as lasting an effect on audiences, even Mads Mikkelsen Kaelicius is well-done but not impactful. Although, it is clear we will see Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Mordo in a bigger, more diabolical development in the future. Yet, the scene stealer of the is film is the special effects.
With Fantastic Beasts coming out soon, I am eady to get a “MAGIC OVERLOAD!!!!!!”, and Doctor Strang takes advantage of that. The reason Strange will feel different and fresher to other Marvel films is because it is all about magic. What inner child will not go “ooOOoOO” and “Wow!” at the sight of spells and zaps zipping across their screen and mind. Hence, the spell-binding effects will fascinate viewers, and even attract new fans to Marvel, whom cannot get enough of the idea of wizardry in film.
