Doctor Strange was the one Marvel character I didn’t know anything about. Of course, this also makes my expectations of the film’s adaptation totally different as well. I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed the movie. I especially love Benedict Cumberbatch’s portrayal on Dr. Stephen Strange. The most off the wall Marvel stories in some cases, it is a visual effects takeover.
From Marvel 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 old life or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
