I have to say this was one of my families most anticipated movies and the fact that we were able to attend a screening of it before it's release made the excitement level just that much greater. I have been a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch since early on watching Sherlock. Once introduced to his acting abilities, I would seek out anything and everything he has acted in.
Doctor Strange was everything and more we anticipated. The plot held together well and kept our attention. My daughter said she was on the edge of her seat the entire viewing. The casting was spot on and the animation was seamless. Upon leaving the theater, I heard one patron say the use of 3D was believable and not over the top or gratuitous and I agree. Doctor Strange is one movie I would recommend. As well as one I wouldn't mind seeing again. And I don't say that about many if any movies.
From Marvel Studios comes “Doctor Strange,” the story of 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. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying, and totally mind-bending journey when Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange” opens in U.S. theaters on November 4, 2016. Rated PG-13.
