Movie Review: Doctor Strange (2016)

This film denotes the appearance of one more avenger into the effectively jam-packed Marvel family while additionally bringing magic into its ever-extending universe. In any case, despite the fact that it offers a colorful excursion through astral domains, limitless real factors, and spacetime distortions, it isn’t completely quite the same as the standard. 
Doctor Strange recounts the story of Stephen Strange, a splendid however presumptuous neurosurgeon who loses the utilization of his hands after an auto collision, burns through the entirety of his cash on exploratory medical procedures to recover his capacities, and ventures east for a final hope treatment where he meets a powerful sorceress who encourages his approaches to tackle energy and shape real factors through the spiritualist expressions (magic). 
Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange imprints his first stretch with comic book films and keeping in mind that he prevails with regards to conveying an adequately engaging blockbuster, his most recent experiences similar issues that damaged his prior functions as Derrickson starts this story on a promising note however indeed loses his hold in the center. 
The screenplay includes a universe that is brimming with minds and potential outcomes yet underneath its equal universes, time control and astral projections lie a similar conventional storyline following a similar unsurprising course that we as a whole have seen commonly previously. What’s fascinating, be that as it may, is the way the bend of the eponymous character is dealt with, for Stephen Strange remains a captivating character consistently. 
This movie has great set pieces that overflow with enchanted characteristics while props, for example, old ancient rarities and out of date relics give added subtleties to the ideal otherworldly climate. The Cinematography is good. Editing moves diverted by letting various CGI-swarmed minutes exceed their need because of which it feels longer than it should. Furthermore, Michael Giacchino contributes with a score that is acceptable yet not exciting. 
As for the performances, then the film includes a skilled troupe in Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton. Cumberbatch as Strange is pitch-amazing projecting and sums equity to his part by portraying his tenacity, egotism, and aspiration with accuracy. Swinton takes virtually every scene she’s in. Be that as it may, the fundamental feature of this film is its shape-moving and eye-popping special visualizations. 
On a general scale, Doctor Strange fills its need by conveying an engaging, entertaining and useful birthplace story. However, it isn’t sufficiently noteworthy to collect a spot among Marvel’s best highlights. Voyaging a protected, hazard-free course and glossed over with trippy, dreamlike visuals, it is a run of the mill thrilling party that we’ve generally expected from Marvel Studios and is another agreeable expansion to their ever-expanding collection. Certainly worth a shot.
