Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) whose life changes forever after a horrible car accident robs him of the use of his hands. Once he discovers that traditional medicine is not of any benefit to him, he is forced to then seek an alternative to healing in an unlikely place. While visiting the mysterious place known as Kamar-Taj, he must put his ego to the side and learn the secrets of a hidden world that consists of alternate dimensions. There he quickly learns that this is not only the center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces set on destroying our reality world.
The movie, based within New York City’s Greenwich Village displays Doctor Strange who must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond.
Doctor Strange utilizes a vast source of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel universe under the training of the tutelage of a mystic known as the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). Strange who is then armed with newly acquired magical powers is then forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
This movie definitely reminds many of the alternate dimensions that existed in previous hit movies such as ‘The Matrix’. Doctor Strange is definitely going to be a box seller because Marvel delivers that action along with the curiosity of an unseen world that exists beyond our own. This movie is definitely what marvel fans are looking for in theaters.
