Have we hit peak Super Hero Movie? Who the hell is Doctor Strange? Why is there a weird looking white bald lady in Nepal that is the supreme sorecerer….why are there sorcerers? The nerds in the audience were happy about this character that I had never heard of before Marvel Studios started marketing it. So I guess he is somewhat popular but I was not sold, and I was thinking as I was watching this, do we need another superhero?
If Doctor Strange is that superhero, I think the answer is no. This movie was rushed and was about as run of the mill as you can get. A faceless magical super monster is the bad guy. He has minions who are not very interesting or scary. It was not a threat that felt real or like something that wasn’t going to be fixed easily.
Doctor Strange learned his powers in about 10 minutes and really didn’t feel like a struggle or that he had learned anything. It just all felt like a secondary character to a secondary movie that wasn’t inspired at all. No one felt like they put in the effort to make this movie better than a cash grab. I would say skip it, but I know you won’t.
