Doctor Strange is quite a trip
5 second plot: It's the origin story of the guy in the title. He's a brilliant surgeon who can't operate anymore after a serious car accident fucks up his hands. While searching for a cure for his shaky hands he ends up being taught in the mystical arts by The Ancient One. It doesn't take long for him to step in and help defend the multiverse.
5 second review: I'm no expert on Doctor Strange but it looks to me like Benedict Cumberbatch is definitely the right choice for the part. The special effects are very spectacular but there are a LOT of them. It's a shame we didn't get to see any of the other super heroes. It's 'just' the origin story of the Doctor, they should have made it a little bit bigger (the story, not the effects, they are big enough).
IMDb score: 8/10
