Marvel's "Doctor Strange" follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City's Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

When Doctor Strange is defibrillated for the first time in the hospital setting, the screen on the defibrillator reads "12", indication that already 12 shocks have been set off. When he is shocked for the 2nd time it reads "16" - after turning on a defibrillator, the "shock count" should read "0", therefore these shocks should have been numbered "1" and "2" respectively.

So, we are getting magical now. From the trailer I was hoping for a thrill ride of a movie. I saw the movie in 3D and the Inception-like effects were the most anticipated by me to see. To be noted that I never felt sick by 3D but those effects were so 2005, like in a bad computer game, that a felt a little sick. The effects in Inception are top-notch compared to this version. I mean, Marvel Studios has now enough money to make great special effects, why are all the effects in the mirror dimension so bad? Remember Legolas from LotR jumping around? So bad were the effects. The other special effects of the movie were OK.
The story was OK, but not great. There was never a real villain. Mads was great, as usual, but the role was not interesting enough. The Ancient One was not good at all, just annoying. This was a very bad role for Tilda, who was always great, but now... she is just not convincing. She was just there, stiff, forgettable and bland.
Forget about the plot holes, just focus of the fact that Dr. Strange saves the Earth just a few scenes after he learns how to open a door to another dimension/ place. Maybe his photographic memory is helping him, but he has no time to practice, he just beats wizards that practice magic for some years now, and he also is smart enough to save the world. As the movie unfolds you have the feeling that from the learning of spells stage, Dr. Strange jumps directly to the saving the world, and it just feel like there were a lot of missing steps, or scenes. Maybe they will release an extended version, because like this, the movie feels chopped.
I know that people are going to praise this movie, because everything Marvel is gold, but for me only the first movie of every superhero in the MCU was good. All the sequels were just bad, and cashed on the success of the franchise. Now Dr. Strange was not so good from the beginning, so there is place for improvement in the next one.
