Doctor Strange -Movie Review
I had the opportunity the see an advance of the film before it comes out next week .I must say that I entered the viewing with an open mind , I was not a fan of the comic or the previous film incarnations as I have never viewed either. In addition I was not the biggest fan of Benedict Cumberbatch as I have only watched him in Star Trek Into Darkness and I didn’t care for the antagonist in that film. However with that open mind I can honestly say two words . Nailed it , that is exactly what he did , the man is an excellent actor with the diversity to play drama and action and all the emotions that go into it . He gives the character a true portrayal as man going thru the trials of life both success and failure with some tragedy and triumph thrown in for good measure .This is a wonderful take on the original subject matter and will please generations to come . The rest of the cast did a great job as well with Rachel McAdams proving she is not just a pretty face but a talented and versatile actress. I give the movie four out five stars .
The story of the film is Stephen Strange, an acclaimed neurosurgeon, loses the use of his hands in a car accident. His former lover and co-worker Christine Palmer tries to help him move on, but the arrogant Strange instead wants to heal his injuries. After months trying experimental surgeries on his hands, and using all his resources, Strange seeks out Jonathan Pangborn, a paraplegic who mysteriously was able to walk again. Pangborn directs Strange to Kamar-Taj, where he is taken in by another sorcerer under the Ancient One, Karl Mordo. The Ancient One shows Strange her power, revealing the astral plane and other dimensions such as the Mirror Dimension. Strange begs her to teach him, and she eventually agrees despite his arrogance, which reminds her of Kaecilius.
