MOVIE REVIEW: DOCTOR STRANGE

Sunday, November 13, 2016 Posted by Kevan Lee , , No comments


This is a super slow review from me because I have been busy but Doctor Strange is currently the best in MCU this year and no doubt it comes with flaws but let me take you through the good and bad of the movie very quickly. Here we go: 


THE GOOD

The cheesy lines and jokes work so flawlessly in this movie. Taking in consideration Benedict Cumberbatch acting, almost all the cheesy dialogue and jokes seems to blend in pretty well with the movie. The charisma that Benedict Cumberbatch carries, allows him to be Doctor Strange without much of an effort. The CG and also the fight scenes in this movie was good and aside from that, we are now exposed to the many different fighting styles of a sorcerer and the many different artifacts that were featured in the Marvel universe. The visual effects are pretty mind blowing, think of Inception but with a twist. Buildings moving and also time shifting certainly puts you on the edge of the seat, I can only imagine the orgasm I will have watching it in IMAX 3D but sadly, too costly nowadays.



THE BAD

The underpowered villain, even with the appearance of his boss, it still seems the villain should be more powerful to put up a good fight. Sadly, aside from that, I was partly interested in a character development for some of the characters in the movie. Aside from Doctor Strange, every other character pretty much just fall flat in the line of character development. I don't mind that added 15 minutes to have a little background run of the other characters or tell me more of the multiverse that he had. Or maybe explain to me about some of the artifacts that you store in the New York Sanctum. 



CONCLUSION

Doctor Strange is a pretty good movie to watch with lots of actions and mind blowing visuals, it also features lots of easter eggs mainly the two ending credit scene (typical Marvel). You should actually already predicted the reason bringing in Benedict Cumberbatch is actually to replace Robert Downey Jr whose contract playing Iron Man has already ended. So yes, he will be joining the Avengers (take my money)
