Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange

Action, Adventure, Fantasy

A former neurosurgeon embarks on a journey of healing only to be drawn into the world of the mystic arts.

The critical consensus

The film has hugely fun moments, nice signature Marvel banter, strong performances and some impressive CGI, but we would expect nothing less from the comic book studio. Unfortunately I had expected a whole lot more and was left a tad underwhelmed.

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.

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

****(*)James Mottram, Total Film, 24/10/2016

While the kaleidoscope visuals may constitute risk, the film fails to provide a character who does the same; perhaps future sequels will add to Strange’s repertoire, like how the Iron Man sequels added to Stark’s.

Clearly, Marvel still has rabbits to pull from the hat.

****(*)Kevin Harley, The List, 25/10/2016

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.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 24/10/2016

This is a weird and witty breath of fresh air.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 27/10/2016

This is a tasty enough appetiser promising better, bigger adventures ahead.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 28/10/2016

Benedict Cumberbatch is unpredictable and intriguing as the Marvel superhero in a brain-melting tale that reinvigorates the genre.
