Director Scott Derrickson's Hollywood movie Doctor Strange, featuring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Rachel McAdams in the lead roles, has received mixed reviews from the audience around the world.
Doctor Strange is a superhero film and director Scott Derrickson has written the script for the movie in collaboration with Jon Spaihts and C Robert Cargill. The film featuring the Marvel Comics character of the same name has been produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The movie has brilliant production values, say the audience.
The story of the film is about Doctor Stephen Strange, who is a former neurosurgeon. He embarks on a journey of healing, but he is drawn into the world of the mystic arts after a tragic car accident. How he acts as an intermediary between the real and mystic world to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe forms the crux of the story.
The audience note that Doctor Strange has nothing big to boast about its story, which is average and boring, and its characterisation is also not up to the mark. However, its visual effects are amazing and it is the best movie of Marvel Studios in terms VFX. Benedict Cumberbatch has delivered brilliant performance, which is the highlight of the movie. Other artistes have also done justice to their roles and are assets of the film.
Many film goers shared their views about the film on Twitter. We bring you some unique comments. Continue to see them in Doctor Strange movie review by audience:
Saw #DoctorStrange last night and it was SO DAMN GOOD. Now having an existential crisis though because I think it made me a Cumberbatch fan?

Christopher Ruocchio @CPRuocchio
The magic in #DoctorStrange still felt science-y. The visuals were astonishing but mostly they folded buildings and summoned lines of force. For example: no one turned into frogs. #DoctorStrange

Caught up with the movie I have anticipated all year, #DoctorStrange Worth every penny. Plot is average but the VFX will blow you apart.

Doctor Strange made me a very happy, giggly boy. Jaw dropping visuals, solid origin story, and truly original action sequences. Review soon!
Eric Striffler @striffleric
Doctor Strange started strong, but progressively bored me. Visuals were great, and some sequences were very clever, but I'll prob forget it.

#DoctorStrange was a kaleidoscopic thrill ride. I couldn't have asked for much more. An enthralling buffet for the senses. The film handled themes like suffering, fear, mortality, sacrifice, and faith with agility and clarity, in my opinion.
