Awesome adventure flick!
As is the norm with Marvel movies, the story strays from the comics. But this film is amazing. It's incredibly visually stimulating and the story is easy to get into. I saw it in theaters twice. Now I'm just waiting for it to come out on DVD.
Magic, marvel, and some inception. Best movie I've watched in 2016
I love Cumberbatch! His personality really fits Dr.Strange's character.Fun characters, funny one-liners and the special effects are top notch. If you're in for some magic and LSD this is the movie to watch. If I can't predict the narrative, it means that it tries something different. If It's an ironman 2 or ironman 3 movie, 2 stars, but this narrative takes it to a different level. Who knew hollywood can pull this weird comic book character off!
Wow, if you watched the movie and didn't like it. You don't have a pulse. This was an awesome entertaining movie. Can't wait to own it.
starting is amazing.but finishing is too week. missing some parts.
I had no idea who the Dr. Strange character was until this movie. It may have been a little slow in parts as it set up the background of Dr. Strange and his transformation to superhero but it was worth it. Love the cloak. Love Cumberbatch.
Not a huge Marvel movie fan but really liked this one. Liked that it began with Dr. Strange's life before so you understood the change and growth.
I did not expect this movie to be that good but it blew me away. This was the best marvel movie so far, i could watch it again.
Benedict Cumberbatch is amazing! The special effects were great. I am sorry I did not get to see it in 3D I heard it was even better! The story was well written and kept me invested the whole time. Glad I stayed for all of the credits and the extra at the end!
Horrible dialogue, horrible characters - I walked out of the theater after a hour - I'm surprised anyone would give this movie 5 stars
Not an entertaining movie at all!
Lame movie. I guess it might be of interest if you were in the special effects for film business yourself.
Absolutley amazing!!!! It was such a fantastic movie I loved every minute of it. The casting was great and I loved the effects. It is a classic Marvel origin story. I would love to see it again if I had time, can't wait to buy it when it comes out on DVD. It is a movie for everyone, people of all ages will enjoy it!!
I walked out about an hour and a half into the movie - it just got boring and I realized I really didn't care how it ended
The special effects were great if I could have stayed awake to see them. Everything moved too fast , too bright and was mesmerizing!! I fell asleep many times and was unable to keep up with the story. What I saw was mostly beautiful.
The fight and struggle to evolve
Great movie. Saw it with my son and husband. Family movie night.
GO SEE THIS. IT"S NOT OPTIONAL.
I've seen stranger...
Good effort. I had to sit through all of the credits to see the extra scenes. It is unbelievable how many people go into making one of these movies.
Doctor Strange holds tightly to the Marvel formula and never takes any real chances. The most frustrating thing is that the film seems to be going through the motions most of all when it comes to developing its main character.
Stay past the final, final credits. Just can't wait.
Start well but used too much computer generated effect towards the end. The continuous folding and rotating buildings was almost sicking. A film that Benedict C. will probably be embarrassed about in a couple years from now.
I am an old jaded movie goer who does not impress easily anymore. This movie, however, is AWESOME!!!! I am also not a huge Cumberbatch fan, but he was very good in this, as were all the other actors. The special effects were utterly beautifully amazing. Highly recommended.
I liked everything about it
Good movie. Something different for a change. Worth it.
I agree with the "ho-hum" review the other person sent it. I'm really tired of movies where CGI is the star. I don't mind superhero movies in which the characters are the highlight of the show and the special effects simply augment the overall look and feel, but this one is just another movie where I feel like I'm watching someone play a video game. Iron Man (the first one especially) and the Batman movies directed by Christopher Nolan are much better because of the focus on the characters. To top it all off, I found this movie was just boring too - not even the special effects could save it. The opening scenes of the doctor doing the surgeries were the best part of the movie.
Incredible, Marvel keeps making great movies. Keep it up, DC and Marvel Fan for life.
Absolutely worthy to watch. Love every minutes of it.
I always find the negative reviews so obvious in their critique. "Ho-hum. Yet another superhero / fantasy CGI movie" - Yeah?. What did you think it was going to be? Green Fried Tomatoes? It's a superhero/fantasy CGI movie, and a frickin' awesome one at that!! Despite the other Ben-Batch hater, I think he did an excellent job of portraying the Brilliant and Arrogant Dr. Steven Strange true to the Comic book. The only complaint I had was the new Marvel opening credit montage. The old one with the comic book flipping was a better fitting tribute to the original comic book creators. Yes Disney, there was a Dr. Strange long before Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth.
No match for Madea's latest.
Ho-hum. Yet another superhero / fantasy CGI movie. If you like these types of movies in general, then you'll probably like this one too. As for me, I am just soooooooooo bored of these types of movies. My 8 year old stepson loved it though (only reason I went to see it in the first place). His five-star review combined with my zero-stars review gives us an average of 2.5 stars. I decided to round down to two stars rather than up to 3 stars.
Worth seeing for the remarkable special effects alone. Some good actors signed up for big cheques. 87/100
Good After Effects. Funny Remind me RBWY Japanese's tv series. The story line moved well according with the original movie. No dirty sex. :) You can take your older teens to watch a decent movie We are going to repeat the movie again next week.
The 1st 3 mins were similar to a movie made in Hawaii about a girl that got into an accident and went thru a weird dream sequence. But, after that Dr. Strange told its own story. Only found the 'ancient one' a little annoying. Some humor in there, kung fu, good effects, a bit long but finally they were able to wrap it up.
Good movie, liked the story line, would like to see more of Rachael McAdam. Wonderful visual effects.
The special effects were great!
At least two hours too long. Cumberbatch is as miscast here as he was in Star Trek. 1/5
A quality, lean film that doesn't rely on exposition (which is odd given it is an origin story). Pacing is perfect. Acting is exactly what you want from the star studded cast. The visuals were a buffet! Just an impressive piece of work all around. Go see it! And don't listen to the trolls...
The lead actor was really annoying, but two stars for the effects, which were decent, if not good.
The Doc was da Bomb! Great Cast! Love the storyline!
Sonofa.....gun what a great movie. Cumberbatch is PERFECTLY cast, the story is fantastic but not "too" far out there, and the digital effects are used masterfully. You can hand out the Academy Award for special effects right now. One of the year's best movies and the next powerhouse franchise - everybody else better just move out of the way because the Doctor is IN!
Excellent story and visuals. Extra scenes during and after the credits, worth waiting for.
Excellent movie. Excellent special effects. excellent cast.
