“Doctor Strange” Movie Review

Scott Derrickson, the director mostly known for his horror movies such as Sinister or Deliver Us from Evil, has created the newest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, titled Dr. Strange. This new film has breathtaking visuals, a solid plot, good acting, and an engaging story.

Benedict Cumberbatch, the actor who plays Dr.Strange, does an excellent job portraying his character throughout the stories development. Starting off as intensely unlikable, Cumberbatch plays an arrogant and narcissistic doctor with little regards for anyone around him. As the plot progresses, Cumberbatch portrays his character more humbly and empathetically which, alongside the writing, forces the viewer to forgive Strange’s misgivings and give him a second chance.

The visuals in this film are, for the most part, nothing short of stunning. The use of computer generated effects makes the magic that Strange and his peers practice feel truly real. Action scenes are fast paced and make use of the same effects, making for intense battles between dueling sorcerers. The only place where these graphics fall short are the few times where moviegoers get a face-on view of Strange flying at breakneck speeds through some type of inter dimensional portal. The way that these particular scenes are orchestrated makes green screen usage obvious, something which breaks the immersion of an otherwise engaging experience.

Dr. Strange’s story is unique and compelling. Based on the original comics by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Scott Derrickson has converted their work, like others have done with many other Marvel stories, to a cinematic experience. The story develops at a comfortable pace, taking care to not drag on in the less exciting parts without leaving plot holes due to scenes being cut.

Dr. Strange is a film that, like many other Marvel movies, will excite both critics and the average viewer. Because it has such an engaging plot, great acting, and incredible special effects, Dr. Strange deserves 4.5 stars.
