Caleb’s review published on Letterboxd:
This MCU entry seemed enthralling and something different with the trailers that came before the release in 2016. Benedict Cumberbatch? Count me in. Tilda Swinton? Hell yeah. Mads Mikkelsen? Awesome! I’m ready, so ready. Aaaaand, nope. It’s easily the most generic MCU movie to date, aside from the awesome ending and an unique way to defeat the enemy. It has all the familiar beats to Iron Man, in which Strange’s origin takes its inspiration from. Overall, the film wasted its own potential to be different and great. Mads Mikkelsen was wasted, which is disappointing. Perhaps the sequel will be better, I’m definitely interested in Doctor Strange as a character.
