Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange ★★★

MCU Rewatch #14 

While their are undeniably some great elements to this film such as Strange’s resistance to change, the casting choices of Cumberbatch, Wong and Swinton, the lively cape, as well as the perplexing and psychedelic CGI, there’s also a lot that falls pretty flat. The villains are some of the most forgettable and uninspired in the MCU, the action is completely out-done by the spectacle of the film and worst of all, this film feels really convenient to the larger picture. Simply put, “Doctor Strange” only exist because Marvel needed a way to write in magic into the MCU and it kind of shows. 

Not bad but definitely not great.
