🎞 Doctor Strange (2016)

Watched Doctor Strange from Walt Disney Pictures
Directed by Scott Derrickson. With Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong. While on a journey of physical and spiritual healing, a brilliant neurosurgeon is drawn into the world of the mystic arts.

I watched this over the past three nights in chunks.

Entertaining, but the narrative was a bit too on-the-nose with large chunks of explanation moving the plot along. The characters were a bit annoying and inconsistent. Dr. Strange was reasonably well developed but didn’t have a serious arc to speak of. His sharp wit would have been more entertaining if I wasn’t constantly comparing the character to Deadpool the entire time. I’m not sure Cumberbatch was the right chose for this type of “comedy”. I didn’t get any chemistry at all between the two supposed romantic leads.

I feel like I watched more Benedict Cumberbatch movies in the last two weeks than I saw movies during the entire last year…

Watched on Netflix on Kindle Fire 7″.
