This is probably the best of the Marvel direct to DVD offerings, and that's because the writers have a clear understanding of what makes Doctor Strange so entertaining.
Pretty poor take on the Origin story of Dr Strange, It lacks any entertaining scenes at all, It drags out with not much happening, The animation was ok but the over complicated plot and allot of weird names to remember this will only appeal to hardcore Marvel fans, The casual fan and kids who are new to Dr Strange won't be wanting to know more about the character anytime soon if this is all they can offer them.
Yet another good quality animated Marvel adventure. Dr Strange is not one of the most famous characters out there but he's pretty interesting. Here he comes across as House MD. A doctor that is rude and becoming less and less concerned about helping people. An accident soon robs him of the ability to use his hands. This is a great plot device and makes a change from the dead loved one schtick (though he has one of them as well). Monsters, magic, demons and sorcery come thick and fast. The story is pretty basic, as with many origin stories. A shame as this could have been something really different.
this was the weakest of the marvel animated films so far, but it was still good enough to watch. the story was slow and the build up uninteresting, but it was cool to see dr strange come about. the time spent as sorcerer supreme was also limited and unsatisfying. this should have been much better but it was still good enough to leave me encouraged about the marvel animated films.
I never followed Doc Strange when I was a kid unless he crossed over with Spider-Man so I can't comment on how much it varies or is similar to his origins but I can say it is extremely slooooow. At 1hr 16min it feels like about 2. It spends most of the running time having Strange learning how to deal with his damaged hands and having him perform Karate Kid-like tasks. Once he comes into his own though its entertaining enough.
