The best of everything.

1st: Cumberbatch at the height of his powers giving us a seamlessly brilliant performance - physically, intellectually and emotionally. Not to mention comically. He's never looked better, been more perfectly cast, or given us a subtler or more believable character arc..

2nd: The special effects. The world-bending is impressive, of course. But the "simple" effects of astral bodies and mandalas of light immerse us in a reality that becomes our own. The Cloak of Invisibility deserves it's own Oscar.

3rd: The story. This is the origin story that truly captures the sense and tone of Marvel, that set it apart, always, from all other comic purveyors. Doctor Strange was always the most unique, because nothing came from outside. He was not bitten or radiated or alien or a mutant. He's a man, just a person, and his power was always inside him. He'd already chosen the path of serving and saving. Now, he only has to overcome ego to actualize his true power.

4th: The Cast. It's a wonderful thing to be surrounded by this deepest bench of amazing talent. Every line, movement, interaction rings true to the world of the movie and connects the audience to the characters.

It just doesn't get better than this.

Marvel Studios has had solid success when it comes to bringing their second-tier heroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU): Ant-Man was a fun little heist flick and Guardians of the Galaxy is still one of the franchise's best entries to date. This multi-realm fantasy film sits comfortably in the top echelon of MCU movies thanks to its ambitious concept and dazzling set pieces, the mind-bending parallel dimensions arguably the greatest challenge Marvel Studios has set themselves yet.

Director Scott Derrickson and his VFX team visualize the multiple plains of existence with jaw-dropping splendor, the Inception-esque world-shifting of the dark dimension is awe inspiring and lends itself to a superb action sequence in the final act. What the climactic battle lacks in originality – an otherworldly entity wants to destroy Earth – it makes up for in sheer visual awesomeness, with our human heroes and villains going at it whilst a recently demolished town in Hong Kong mends itself in reverse. If the action is A+ then the story is a respectable B+. The pre-powers backstory of the titular hero is mercifully brief and there is a plethora of jokes that hit the mark, however there's some clunky exposition serving as narrative shorthand and the odd bout of dire-logue that could have been cleaned up.

As for Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch plays him with a dash of Tony Stark's arrogance, a pinch of Steve Roger's sincerity and a sprinkle of Scott Lang's what-the-hell-am-I-doing bewilderedness, all the while adding a touch of the rock 'n' roll to his brain surgeon turned sorcerer.

I've read some of the long winded ridiculously self important reviews. Here's my two cents: as a kid I grew up on the Bronze Age of Comics and I always had a soft spot for the lesser known titles like Dr. Strange, I loved the original Defenders (Hulk, Dr. Strange,and Namor) back when the Avengers and X-men ruled the comic super teams. So to see all the MCU characters come to life on the big screen is truly a fantastic experience. And best of all because of the constraints of film there is a beginning, middle and end in every movie, like the old comic stories. In the end the morality tale of good conquering evil comes through. So I am writing this to the old school fans of Dr. Strange -is the film meticulously adherent to the original story? No. But if you're like me and waited a lifetime to see these character come to life onscreen then you're in luck, Dr. Strange will not disappoint.

The Good:
Well let's get this out of the way since it's the most obvious highlight. The visuals were by far the best aspect of this film. The first thing that comes to mind is that this film's visuals are similar to that of the movie Inception, except multiplied by 10. The 3D special effects were done very well and didn't seem like a cheap money grab. I thought it gave just the right amount of psychedelic special effects without getting extremely too trippy. More importantly, the 3D effects were more than memorable and not just a "one and done" as in other films.

Benedict Cumberbatch portrays the role of Doctor Strange pretty well in my opinion. The character is supposed to be arrogant and cocky, similar to that of Tony Stark from Iron Man. You get all of that from Cumberbatch to the point that at times you simply don't like his character, as a person. Both him and Rachel McAdams (who plays Christine Palmer) share fun and witty banter in various occasions. Thankfully McAdams wasn't just thrown in to be the helpless damsel in distress. Instead she seemed like a grounded character that was much more relatable to those of us in the audience.

Doctor Strange was filled with much more comedy than expected. More specifically there's more physical comedy with a certain character that has a mind of its own. (You'll know it when you see it.) Besides that there were plenty of jokes and humorous moments in the film that will get some chuckles and laughs out of you.

One of the most surprising supporting roles to interest me was Tilda Swinton's "The Ancient One". I was a little dubious about her role at first, but it was intriguing to see how much depth was given to her character.
