I was blessed to have seen Doctor Strange yesterday, blessed to have witnessed the growth of a man who I admired in the British Series Sherlockto become one of my favorite actors to go see.
Doctor Strange in itself is a good movie the storyline did have a lengthy growth phase of Dr. Stephen Vincent Strange the egotistic neurosurgeon to Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme. You do have to bear with the transition, but you will not notice the time passing because the whole development stage is full of visual pleasure, some comic relief and many mysteries.

Disney/Marvel went all out in the way the story and the buildup to the way Doctor Strange used intelligence, science and magic to save the world. The movie’s visual effects are so fluid you will think you are in Doctor Strange’s world. The movie casting is also off the hook, the wonderful performance by the supporting casts in the movie made sure when Strange was not hugging the screen you are not missing his presence.

Doctor Strange is a superhero film from the Marvel Cinematic universe and the fourteenth movie from that universe. The movie is doing very well in the box office and has high approval ratings from critics and audience.

The movie plot starts by introducing us to an above average, intelligent and egotistic neurosurgeon whose life got turned inside out when a tragic accident damaged the nerves in his hands making it impossible for him to continue in the profession he reigns as god.

After spending everything he has on finding a cure and healing to his hands, he decided to go searching for a cure in Kathmandu, Nepal. He heard of a man who could not walk again and started walking after getting teachings from a person called the Ancient One.

His arrival was expected to his surprise and his teaching began, but his ego always got in his way and his constant know it all attitude almost ruined the world he desperately wants be the best at doing something in.

I have seen little to nothing of Benedict Cumberbatch’s movies even then just seeing movies like War Horse (2011), Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) and Imitation Game (2014) I have to admit he has grown to become a leading man in the movie world.
His portrayal here is memorable and he did it so well it was hard for me to imagine anyone who could have fit and done a better performance.
The movie ended with the sighting of an infinity stone, all of this is a build up to Marvel’s Infinity War storyline.

Also in the post credit scenes, we can see glimpse of what could be a sequel to this Doctor Strange introductory movie.
If you are waiting for any more reasons to go and see this movie you are probably never going to see it. For me this is one of the best Marvel Cinematic movies out there.
