Doctor Strange is a 2016 Marvel Studios Fantasy film, which basically means it is a superhero film. It is starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton as the main characters. A synopsis for Doctor Strange reads: “A former neurosurgeon embarks on a journey of healing only to be drawn into the world of the mystic arts“.
Without giving away too much, Benedict Cumberbatch is phenomenal. Although I don’t personally like him, I must say that after the performance in this film he won me over; he is one class actor. He seems he was born to play the role of the ex-neurosurgeon turned Sorcerer Supreme. Every cinema goer will love the action, humor, adventure and fantasy throughout the film.
I am always prudent when it comes to action/fantasy movies with big budgets. They generally seem to follow a certain pattern where the scenarios and scripts are so “déjà-vu” that I feel disgusted. Here, the story line is somewhat classic, but the humor and delivery style reminds me a bit of Ant-Man which I personally enjoyed.
I must say that the best point of this movie is the fact that the graphics are astonishing! Great CGI and on point artwork… you have to watch this in 3D to reach its maximum potential! I wouldn’t have it any other way that’s for sure. Visual entertainment at its finest, enjoy.
I highly recommend this film and I will give it a ranking of 8 out of 10. Go and watch it while it is still in the cinemas!
