movie review: Doctor Strange

doctor-strange-movie-composer-cumberbatch

I knew nothing about Doctor Strange other than knowing it’s a marvel hero.

After seeing this, it’s like a poor man’s Iron Man in terms of formula, except in a breakneck speed without giving us time to properly develop the character. Ever since Civil War, my standards for superhero flicks has risen. It either be on par with Civil War or surpass it. Doctor Strange was as underwhelming and generic as it gets. The plot was nonsensical. Instead of wasting time training Strange, why not have that bald old hag use the men she already has in her dojo? In typical marvel fashion, their villains are weak as their motivations. I can’t even remember their names. The visual effects are the best thing about this movie. It’s like I’m watching Inception on steroids. Of course let’s not forget the acting, Benedict Cumberbatch (I can’t spell his name) fits right in with the character. It’s decently entertaining film, but ultimately forgettable.

Rating: 5/10
