Doctor Strange Reviews

Riddled with the same sense of formula, small glimmers of substance glimmer through the usual predictable cadences bequeathed upon the budding superhero fast track.

Benedict Cumberbatch's egotistical Ironman-meets-House-MD persona keeps us in the game - if only just. He shares more chemistry with his eccentric levitation cloak than with most humans in the film.

Entre un protagónico que casi no convence, un villano de cartón, arcos argumentales insultantemente inconclusos y una batalla final anticlimática, Doctor Strange es una extraña decepción.
November 4, 2018
Another package from the conveyer belt of prototypical superhero movies with crap CGI and a relentless cacophony of action sequences where nothing ever really feels at stake.

It's handicapped by performances that are decent but not great, an over-abundance of visual effects that are state-of-the-art but far too familiar, and a storyline that just gets sillier the longer it goes on.

The film is bloated and unfunny... and is plagued by a boringly retrograde notion of pan-Asian-ness while conveniently escaping the burden of casting any actual Asians in its principal roles.

Strange is pretty much the same sort of movie we've seen from Marvel Studios ever since Robert Downey Jr. snarked his way through the first Iron Man and into our hearts all those years ago, and the same style of origin Marvel has been delivering since.

[An] underwhelming panel-to-screen Marvel adaptation.

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.
December 22, 2016
Quite possibly the worst of the Marvel movies...

My reaction to this movie is mixed, at best.

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.
November 8, 2016
A beat-for-beat remake of the first Iron Man movie crossed with a Windows 95 screensaver. Doesn't this stuff ever get stale to you people?
November 7, 2016
"Doctor Strange" is where the welcome wears out, where Marvel's shortcomings take center stage and play a thousand encores.
November 5, 2016
Dull, talky, derivative, full of the usual CGI cheez whiz. Cumberbatch is the epitome of vanilla.
November 4, 2016
The filmmaking isn't bold enough to fully revel in the strangeness of the source material.

Affluent white guy gets knocked down a peg or two, gets rebuked by his girlfriend (Rachel McAdams) when he needs her support the most, has an epiphany at the hands of an (inexplicably white) eastern master, and re-emerges as a superhero: Doctor Peculiar.
November 4, 2016
Basically Iron Man with weaker laugh lines and vastly cooler action sequences. It's Iron Man meets Thor 2, and the thing is, those guys have met before.
November 4, 2016
The Marvel Comics movie universe gets a bit bigger, though not appreciably better, with Doctor Strange.
November 4, 2016
There's a bunch of mumbo jumbo about sorcerers and whatnot, which weigh down the screenplay like an anchor.
