While it might not be Marvel’s most ambitious or successful work, they’ve nevertheless shown us a previously-unseen side of their cinematic universe and done so in frequently jaw-dropping fashion, elevating Doctor Strange beyond the film’s other, generally three-star, attributes.

Boasts an underlying originality and freshness missing from the increasingly cookie-cutter comic-book realm of late.

Cumberbatch fits Doctor Strange like a pair of snap-tight surgical gloves, in yet another MCU triumph. Beautifully designed, brilliantly executed.

Problems arise when Doctor Strange tries to tackle the everyday stuff, like telling a half-decent story.

It’s a tremendously engaging and likeable superhero ride, in which the classiest of casts show they know exactly where to take it seriously – and where to inject the fun.

The overall production – from the exquisite orchestral score to the pitch-perfect pop songs and the fabulous CGI – makes Doctor Strange a hero among Marvel movies.

Director Scott Derrickson and his co-writers seem to have captured the spirit of the unconventional source material nicely.

Wasn't a complete Marvel home run for me, but no question this is a big screen outing well worth the ticket price...

A bizarre and beautiful detour on the Marvel journey, which culminates in a mind-bending, expectation-inverting final act. Not to be watched under the influence.
