Rapid Reviews | ‘Doctor Strange’
Marvel Studios has been making blockbuster superhero movies for nearly a decade, but do they still have a few tricks up their sleeve? Maybe this film about a magician is the best place to find out. His name is Doctor Strange, he stars in a movie called Doctor Strange, and he’s one of the most ambitious characters that Marvel has ever put on film, with a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock), Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) and Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal).
But is this psychedelic new visual effects thrill ride worth taking? Join our illustrious film critic William Bibbiani as he spirit guides you through the world of Doctor Strange, telling you everything you really need to know about the movie in just 60 seconds, so you can decide for yourself whether to give Marvel another shot, or if you can finally skip out on this franchise, stay at home and hang out with your family.
