And here we have another masterpiece from Marvel’s cinematic universe. Released last week, Marvel’s Doctor Strange is an ultimate delight to watch. It’s a bit different though, as it presents a sorcerer as a super hero. Benedict Cumberbatch is superb and we won’t be able to our eyes off him.
With this film, Marvel enters the bewitching world of magical mysticism. Doctor Strange is about an intelligent surgeon, rather an arrogant surgeon (Benedict Cumberbatch), who met with a car accident, and broke his hands. When conventional medicine fails to heal him, his search for a miracle cure leads him into a magical realm that defies the laws of physics, in the latest superhero entry from Marvel Studios.
Right from the beginning, we get the feeling that it is going to be a different Marvel movie. Rather than introducing the protagonist first, they introduce us with the villain first. And we love it. After all a glimpse of all these sorcerers could do and the beautiful effects that awaited us as we proceeded are worth watching. After this, like all the other Marvel movies, we see the titular character who has his own flaws before he is trained and sets out to defeat a villain who is more powerful than the hero. Though this part is similar to any other Marvel movie, but what makes Doctor Strange different is the way the makers have managed to make this ultra-serious character also somewhat like Tony Stark, with his snarky one-liners and jokes which no one would laugh at. The CGI is expertly done and add wow factor to the movie which makes it a great cinematic experience.
As far as the cast of the movie is concerned, the ensemble cast which includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel Mcadams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Scott Adkins and Michael Stuhlbarg have done a fantastic job. Benedict Cumberbatch has yet again proved with Doctor Strange that he can don as many faces as you give him. Credit should also be given to the director, Scott Derrickson who has given us a different and unique Marvel movie. Doctor strange is entertaining, despite its formulaic plot.
Watch Doctor Strange for the sheer love of Marvel. They have given us yet another gem in the form of Doctor Strange. And of course watch this hollywood movie for Benedict Cumberbatch, who amazingly brilliant in the film.
