synopsis

From Marvel Studios 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 life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.

review

Strange. 🙂 About 90% sure when Dr. Strange became a super hero 😕 but felt decision lacked transformation development time: surgeon > Supreme Master? Why Strange? What is the connection that empowers his powers? Knowledge? Subtle, but true. Unlike Batman: civilian > crime fighter…self-explanatory!

Take that one step further: how does the stealing of the page connect Dormammu to Stephen Strange? At least Batman had a reason to get the person that murdered his parents: Vengeance!

In the end, I was agreeing with Mordo 🙁

Graphically and filmography related, reminded me of Inception :O 🙂

Benjamin looks good with all the make up accentuations.
