And here we have another superhero film based on a Marvel Comics character and with no surprise is another great and amusing one. Doctor Strange is Stephen Strange – performed by the genuinely awesome Benedict Cumberbatch -, an unfortunate former surgeon who becomes a powerful sorcerer under the tutelage of a mystic known as the Ancient One – performed by Tilda Swinton who is as always stunning. For those who don’t know well Doctor Strange story, this is a great way to get into his universe and why he’s adored by many. Before he became a sorcerer, he was cocky and rude, but then over time he becomes courageous, humble and even funny. All these elements go along really well with the whole plotline. It’s just really pleasurable to watch Doctor Strange journey into saving the world and how he becomes such a damn good sorcerer. Once again, well done Marvel!
