While a bit more "Kung Fu Fighting" than one might expect, I'm sure the target audience is not 50 year old collectors of silver age comics. In this regard however, one misses the sometimes amazing visuals that artist Steve Ditko brought to the original 1960's comic book series. After all, Dr. Strange was one of Marvel's more cerebral characters.
Bottom line - a nice DVD to share with kids, or for Marvel fan boys.
The animation is crisper in color and hue. The storytelling on the Strange film is par to most feature films
For fans of the comic adaventures of Dr Strange will NOT be disappointed. Those new fans will enjoy this production as well.
It comes down to this, IS IT WORTH IT? I say this..it is an amazing production and would hope that those at Lion's Gate and Marvel retell more stories of Dr Strange. If it does not happen, well it is their Loss

To the plot now: Stephen Strange is a talented neurosurgeon. But he's egotistical, callous, and uncaring. He's even big enough of a jerk that he rejects a plea for help regarding a brain-diseased child who sees in her nightmares a dreaded countenance swathed in flames. One evening, while driving, Stephen careens off the road and hurtles down a cliff, which results in irreparable damage to his hands. Despairing, having lost his fortunes, and having exhausted all treatment options for his injuries, he bleakly reaches the end of his rope. But fate intervenes in the presence of Wong, a sorcerer who senses potential in Strange. Wong sends him to a remote Tibetan monastery, to possibly become a student of the Ancient One.Read more ›
The 80s came and so did puberty. The Dodgers, Playmates of the Month and Chevies became more wonderous than a comic book wizard. Such is life. Doctor Strange faded in my memory but, as I later discovered, never really died.
Almost thirty years later I'm walking through Target with my little boy. For some unknown, almost mystical reason I stop at an end-cap full of DVDs. The title, "Doctor Strange," and the familiar image of my childhood hero transports me back to 1969. I quickly nab the DVD from the shelf and joyfully regale my son with memories of the good Doctor. His eyes light up as I explain the hero. "You got to buy it, Daddy!" he exclaims.
That afternoon, with some take-out pizza, my little boy and I sat back on the couch and had a great time watching this DVD. The good folks at Marvel didn't let me down. The story and animated images were almost perfect. Me and, more importantly, my son loved it. We watched it twice. There is nothing better than tossing a line from your cherished childhood memories to your own child. Beware, diciples of dark magic! Doctor Strange is back!
