Doctor Strange Review
The movie Doctor Strange is based on the Marvel comics character. The starts with the life of Stephen Strange as a Neurosurgeon. Thankfully not much footage is wasted on that aspect on his life. The movie quickly moves to training and creation of Doctor Strange the Sorcerer. The movie mixes magic and action together. The action involves martial arts and amateur physical combat with the help of magic and few magical instruments. Most of the action seems to be inspired by the movie Inception. Many times during the movie one would feel that the movie goes overboard with the  magical powers displayed. Also there are 2 occasions where the special effects are too complex and fast which makes it difficult to figure out what is happening. Apart from action and magic there is light humor occasionally. The movie is MPAA rated PG-13 so the display of violence is kept to a minimum even though people are murdered. The length of the movie is 1 hour 55 minutes however it is not boring and keeps the viewer interested throughout the film.
Benedict Cumberbatch plays the role of Dr. Stephen Strange and if you have seen his acting before then you can expect the same. Doctor Strange’s relationship with Christine Palmer played by Rachel McAdams is kept to a minimum. Other key actors are Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Mads Mikkelsen and Benedict Wong. The movie was directed by Scott Derrickson.

Overall the movie is fun to watch the first time but not so much for the second time. I would rate the movie Doctor Strange 7/10.
