When a neurosurgeon loses the use of his hands in a car accident, his search for healing leads him into a world of magic.

Full of some of the best effects I’ve ever seen, this movie rarely pauses to let us catch our breath. Cumberbatch is perfect for the part of the snarky surgeon turned Sorcerer and Swinton as the Ancient one (a weird choice) rocks the temple. Everyone is good in this, the score is excellent and the 3-D is worthwhile. A very impressive, immersive experience.

However, Marvel seems to think that all of their movies require an element of MMA and the fights were way out of place here, especially since the magic duels were so well done. The villain was paper thin; he just seemed to be there cause trouble, no substance to him. And it seemed that Doctor Strange learned things very quickly that took most everyone else there decades.

Overall, I’d recommend this and do see it in 3-D. There is a mid-credits scene that the audience applauded and a post credits scene, so hold it in for those.

Flytrap rating: 7.5 /10
