Mount the sky, this superhero flock. Time to judge the blackest heart, dearest ego and strength in worms. Doctor Strange bears that ever present glow, the lens shiny and dull, such perfume catching lunacy in a jar.
A bouncy castle for the brain, reflecting close-distance fears and animal traps. The unwise sink into darkly window pits; skating heat across a view, portending mischievous calamity. The doc says, “It’s time for change!”
Michael Giacchino’s unwinding conqueror of a soundtrack matches flint with the sharpest lock. It’s a multi-headed demon, whose time for smoky battle appears re-run and immediate.
Chiselled features define Benedict Cumberbatch’s bruised surgeon. Reaching out, he looks in. Finding strength untapped, so that leadership might amend the deadliest graces.
With editing that motion sickness avoids, Doctor Strange spells ACTION in grey-on-pink terms. Thus, the punchline proves denser than a prison wall made of teeth. Ergo, flood the imagination whose combat opens doors to airborne ground. (Capsule review)
(Released by Walt Disney Pictures and rated "PG-13" for sci-fi violence and action throughout and an intense crash sequence.)
