The weird world of Doctor Strange is full of psychedelic mysticism and a I was worried a cohesive story would get lost in the weirdness but no, the film takes a mind-bending premise and executes it in a really entertaining way! My only quibble: Benedict Cumberbatch's American accent. He's a tremendous actor but man oh man, what I wouldn't give for the filmmakers to bend the fact that Dr. Stephen Strange is American and let Mr. Cumberbatch unleash his dulcet British accented tones.

A decent origin story. Benedict Cumberbatch's demeanor is a good fit for the MCU. I didn't find the villain to be particularly interesting in this, but I'm looking forward to seeing more of Doctor Strange in the inevitable sequels. All in all, really fun with pretty special effects.

Fascinating film with a few dashes of humour thrown in. Slow-paced, but entertaining all the same.

It's a Marvel movie and appropriately named. We thought it moved slow and the storyline just didn't seem to work.

This is one of the better ones. Great plot, character development, effects, etc. Never a dull moment. It's quite trippy and surreal at times which might make it a bit difficult to follow. Cumberbatch is fantastic as Doc Strange.

I liked it even though the villain was kinda weak. Benedict is very good as the one time arrogant doctor.

Doctor Strange has astounding visual effects, and Benedict Cumberbatch, needless to say, was excellent, but with the premise being all about the supernatural, they get it wrong and so the movie is pointless. At times they get going on some truths, which are quite self-evident, but then they stop when they apparently get too close to the actual supernatural reality, namely, God. Additionally, they use certain commonly-used religious terminology and phrases to describe things which are quite different, and so it can be quite misleading. Also, there is lots of talk about the multiverse, the truth of which is debatable. Obviously, if there is one multiverse, it is the universe (uni - one). There may be more than one "world" (whatever definition is given of 'world') or many galaxies in the universe, but since it is still considered a unified thing, talk of a "multiverse" seems purposeless. All in all, I was extremely disappointed with the movie.

Not my kind of movie despite the great BC. Annoying talking description - maybe I hit the wrong key, instead of captions I got a voice. Into the movie for 10 minutes & out.

Tons of quotes already populated in IMDb as this one:

The Ancient One: You think you know how the world works? You think that this material universe is all there is? What is real? What mysteries lie beyond the reach of your senses? At the root of existence, mind and matter meet. Thoughts form reality. This universe is only one of an infinite number. Worlds without end; some benevolent and life-giving, others filled with malice and hunger. Dark places where powers older than time lie, ravenous and waiting. Who are you in this vast multiverse, Mr. Strange?
