Critic Reviews for Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange, intended to be a mind-bending, rule-breaking rebuke to the squares of superhero cinema, turns out to be a rebel in name only -- the textbook definition of a bad trip.
Cumberbatch, both a natural comedian and a subtle one, knows how to get a big laugh from nothing more than an arched eyebrow.
With Dr. Strange the Marvel magic seems largely to have run out-which is unfortunate, given the movie's titular protagonist is himself a magician.
Doctor Strange is about as weird as any Marvel movie is going to get these days, which is not particularly weird.
Audience Reviews for Doctor Strange
Scott Derrickson makes some magic with Doctor Strange. Floating in at a solid 2 hours and change, Doctor Strange pushes through sling rings at a steady pace, never moving to fast or slowing down to a crawl. While the depths of magic and sorcery don't get into nitty-gritty detail, the plot provides enough to put the pieces together. Doctor Strange relies heavily on the visuals and the CG doesn't squander. The opening sequence alone is worth the price of admission. Benedict Cumberbatch's line delivery hits the spot and is the source for some laughs. Tilda Swinton and Mads Mikkelsen deliver strong supporting performances along with Rachel McAdams and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Doctor Strange has the humor, the effects, and the entertainment value to complete the package. Now only if the warnings came before the spells.
Great movie. I am not going often to the cinema anymore but this was definitely enjoyable on the big screen in 3D.
Typically expository (and tiring because of that) like most films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe whose main objective is to introduce a new superhero, the movie is at least impressive with its psychedelic visual effects and Benedict Cumberbatch in an intense performance.
