‘Dr. Strange’ Review

Pros: Like any Marvel movie, “Dr. Strange” is a must see. If you haven’t seen any Marvel movies in the past, “Dr. Strange” is a great film to start your journey. Benedict Cumberbatch is the perfect actor for the role of Dr. Strange. He brings the elements of comedy that will have you laughing throughout the film. His character reacts how you would in all these weird situations. The action scenes were entertaining, and the special effects were mind-blowing. The movie’s action starts off fairly quickly, making sure you’ll be on the edge of your seat right off the bat.

Cons: While “Dr. Strange” is in every way whimsical, there are certain moments where the story writers sound like they were just making things up as they went along. Terms like the “mirror dimension,” and an entity referred to as the all-original “darkness” makes the movie sound like it was written by a bunch of high school nerds. The fighting is fun to watch but sometimes gives you a headache with all the gravity shifts and jumping around. The camera moves far too much during action scenes, making you dizzy. Other scenes were just downright ridiculous.   Cumberbatch was indeed a great choice as Dr. Strange, but I much prefer his smooth British accent.
