So I watched the movie with no expectations or information except that it was a Marvel movie. Can I tell you, I loved it.
Dr. Stephen Strange is a brilliant neurosurgeon. When he loses his ability to use his hands and be a surgeon, he seeks help. He finds it and what's when things get weird and wonderful. He is sucked into a new world where he is introduced into the mystical arts. You have to watch it to see the wonderful effects.
The plot is strong. I won't give too much away. The acting is first rate. Benedict Cumberbatch is perfect as Dr. Strange. The ever wonderful Chiwetel Ejiofor is solid as Mordo and Tilda Swinson is always amazing in every movie she makes. She plays the Ancient One.
There is a lot going on but it is well worth it. I went in with little expectations and now cannot wait for the sequel. Make sure to watch until the end for a hint of where Dr. Strange might pop up again!
Doctor Strange is available now! Go buy it!
