Doctor Strange is a great addition to the Marvel series. He’s arrogant, funny, and tries to save the universe from evil.
“‘Doctor Strange’ deals with parallel dimensions, alternate dimensions and the multiverse, which unlocks an entirely new area of storytelling for us. It’s the richness of that Marvel Universe that allows us, on what will be our 14th film released, to open up this entirely new aspect,”producer Kevin Feige explains.
The story follows world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange, whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place—a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange—armed with newly acquired magical powers—is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
This movie was excellent in 3D and on the IMAX screen, so if you get a chance to see it on the IMAX screen…do it! This movie is pure Marvel and the storytelling is very similar to previous Marvel movies. If you’ve let your young kids see the other movies, then this one shouldn’t be an issue. Although the way the images of the world are manipulated on screen could be confusing from some kids.
The Avengers are discussed in the movie, but I won’t spoil it as to who (if any) are in this movie. But as with any Marvel movie….stay until the very end of the very last credit.
Doctor Strange opens nationwide today (11/4).
Rated PG-13, Run Time 115 minutes, #DoctorStrange
