Boasts an underlying originality and freshness missing from the increasingly cookie-cutter comic-book realm of late.

Cumberbatch fits Doctor Strange like a pair of snap-tight surgical gloves, in yet another MCU triumph. Beautifully designed, brilliantly executed.

Problems arise when Doctor Strange tries to tackle the everyday stuff, like telling a half-decent story.

Perhaps the strangest aspect of Doctor Strange, within the lockstep rubric of these things, is how non-Marvelly it manages to feel.

It’s a tremendously engaging and likeable superhero ride, in which the classiest of casts show they know exactly where to take it seriously – and where to inject the fun.

The overall production – from the exquisite orchestral score to the pitch-perfect pop songs and the fabulous CGI – makes Doctor Strange a hero among Marvel movies.

Director Scott Derrickson and his co-writers seem to have captured the spirit of the unconventional source material nicely.

Wasn't a complete Marvel home run for me, but no question this is a big screen outing well worth the ticket price...

A bizarre and beautiful detour on the Marvel journey, which culminates in a mind-bending, expectation-inverting final act. Not to be watched under the influence.

The quality of Marvel's movies is definitely improving but still this is one of the better origin stories of all primarily because of the title character's journey and its purpose. This is, as of now, one of its kind and that is saying something given the volume of movies coming out of the movie machine that is Disney. The visuals, the humour, strong leads...

Anyone know where one is able to get a red cloak like that was biding its time in a glass case waiting for Dr Strange to turn up....so original. Even Red riding hood's cloak couldn't match this cloak's abilities. I felt the film could have started with a more gentle opening scene in the library. With a good script and storyline the film flowed along...

Doctor Strange is what you would expect from a Marvel movie. The trippy visuals, action and magic is badass. I love Benedict Cumberbatch and I liked him a lot as Doctor Steven Strange. Tilda Swinton is also very good as The Ancient One. Mads Mikkelsen can play a great intellectual villain. I think his character could've been more compelling. It's not one of...

Enjoyable watch. Saw it in 2D, special effects would make it worth view in 3D. The effects in 2D were mindbending, evening psychotic at times, but still believable in parts. Action scenes were spectacular. Story is tried and tested and in this case a winner. West meets East - Brilliant.
