Yes, I know! It took me quite a while to finally publish this post. The movie has been out for ages now and I’m only just publishing my review. What kind of madness is this!?! Don’t worry, guys. I’ve watched the movie a few days ago. I was just busy with a certain super secret project I’m working on that you guys will find out about very soon. Just, bear with me.
So, at a certain point, I wasn’t even going to do a review of Doctor Strange because it’s much more fantasy than actually sci-fi. But then I thought You know what, screw it! This is my blog and I can do whatever I feel like bloody doing! And so, yes. Yes, I will be doing a review of Doctor Strange.
Straight off the bat, I want to say that everybody has a certain role with which they associate an actor. And to me, the role that I associate Benedict Cumberbatch with is the main character of BBC’s Sherlock. It was thrilling to see the similarities between arrogant smart-ass Sherlock Holmes and arrogant smart-ass Doctor Steven Strange.
But I think the thing everybody cares about in this movie are the special effects and… oh my gosh! The effects! The effects! First, we had that epic opening scene! Then that scene where he’s going through the multi-verse! Then that cathedral scene! Then that scene in London! Then that scene in Hong Kong! The effects were definitely a very sky-high point of this film. I also need to point out that there was that beautiful shot of New York with Avengers Tower in the very center.
I also loved to see the transformation from that neurosurgeon to that sorcerer! They did that very nicely. My only real issue with the movie was that they shouldn’t have had that Dormammu part. Kaecilius would have been enough of a villain for the first film. Instead, they had to weave in one of Strange’s most powerful enemies and have him defeated in a 10-minute scene.
Anyway, this movie confirmed a couple of rumors/theories going around lately. The first one being a theory that an Infinity Stone is located inside of the Eye of Agamoto. The second one being that Strange will be helping Thor find his father in next year’s Thor: Ragnarok. Oh and, my gosh, that first post-credit scene was awesome! Would you like some tea? That line was both a call-back to that scene earlier on when the Ancient One gave Strange that Cuppa, and a joke referring to the fact that Cumberbatch is English and stereotypically, English people are supposed to drink a lot of tea.
