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 ›
Great news! The new Dr. Strange movie came out and I bought it and watched it the first day. I was filled with anticipation of my favorite comic book hero coming to the movies. The DVD cover art is very attractive and has a spell surrounding the Sorcerer Supreme's hands -- spheres with runes and symbols around them showing the fascinating nature of his magic. I loved the movie and there were many good and not so good aspects to review in it.
The movie began and for the first five or six minutes it was all about magicians I had never seen before. They all seemed to have magic amulets that weaken the unique quality of the Eye of Agamotto, Dr. Strange's most powerful talisman. I realized one of these magicians was Baron Mordo, which was cool and then I realized one of them was Wong. Dr. Strange's house servant of old now has magic powers which rival even those of Mordo! Wong never had any magic powers that I can recall in the comics. The most he had was some meager martial arts skill. So that was a bit of a surprise.
After that the story goes into the origin of Dr. Strange and is extremely well done. I was very happily surprised by how well done. Of course, I am critical of events that are mundane which are unbelievable. One of my few beefs during the origin part is when Dr. Strange is climbing sheer mountain cliffs wearing a parka and gloves and using no climbing tools whatsoever. This is supposed to be the time when his hands don't even work well and he's pulling himself up mountains. But, I can forgive for a while. The other is that climbing into the mountains of Tibet to find a guru is totally hackneyed now. It would have been a good place to mix it up a bit. (How about another dimension?)
At a certain point Mordo is told to train Dr. Strange.Read more ›
