More like Doctor AWESOME! :D
This movie was really more than I expected it to be. It was the Marvel style, sure (and in the credits there follow certain revelations on movies to come), but it was so much more than that! It was a journey into the mind! It was an adventure of the soul! It was a sword fight with logic! It was a measure of magic, of modern wizardry, of the strange forces beyond it... it was a new world entirely!
The closest masterpiece I can compare it to is Inception, and that says something considering that's still my favorite movie of all time. But this was so much more.
It's no new favorite, mind you, but the effects were out of this world. Mind-bending. A magnificent display of Marvels, with the trademark wit and steady pace you'd expect from the one and only. I really can't overstate how great the special effects were. They didn't just blend in and seem authentic, but move through unexpected patterns, to unexpected places, to a whole other dimension of CGI wizardry.
Great actors too, not least Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton and Mads Mikkelsen in what you might consider the main roles. I was happy to see Scott Adkins land a role as well, even if it was a short-lived on.
The fights: brilliant. The relations. The everything. Awesomeness overload.
Can't wait to see more of Doctor Strange.
