Empowered as the new Sorcerer Supreme, Dr. Strange now tests his limits, rising up against monsters that push at the gates, facing the most terrifying entity humankind has ever known.

Not Very Inspiring
6 May 2012 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

The story of Dr. Strange had a lot in common with the story of Tony Stark (Iron Man). Both of them were plagued with guilt and the demons of alcoholism. Stark found his salvation with Iron Man and becoming a super hero, and Strange broke down the shallow exterior of his vain personality, and found the spiritual strength of his soul.

Unfortunately, the classic story of Dr. Strange, as envisioned by Steve Ditko and Stan Lee back in the 1962, never makes it across the mists of time to get to this movie. A real loss for the the kids of today. The original story is timeless.

However, what we get is the watered down version reinvention. Dr. Strange tries to perform surgery on his sister, and she dies. Then he has a car accident, breaks his surgeon's hands, and runs out of credit and gets tossed out of his mansion. No deep spiritual caverns are ever explored, and the only reason Dr. Strange end up visiting the Ancient One is because Wong lied to him and told Strange that the Ancient One could cure his hands. Not exactly a solid foundation for friendship when it begins on a lie.

Strange arrives at Tibet, and the have him washing the floors and picking up rocks. All we see is how much his hands hurt, and that gets kind of old after twenty minutes. There is never any spiritual development at all, and this script totally misses the whole point of Dr. Strange.

Magically, whenever Baron Mordo attacks Dr. Strange, the latent magical powers of Dr. Strange come out to fight Mordo, so even his development as a sorcerer has nothing to do with the efforts of Dr. Strange.

The rest of the story is all downhill from there. It is all magic, and Dr. Strange might as well have rubbed a Genie's Lamp or found a magic wand at Hogwarts Academy. There is nothing less shallow about Dr. Strange at the end of the movie than at the beginning. The only difference is he is wearing a nice red suit and the Amulet of the Sorcerer Supreme.

This brain-dead and vapid script, was written by somebody who had never read Dr. Strange and had no passion for the character. I felt sorry for Steve Ditko, where ever he is, that his great character got such an awful treatment.

Then there is the dark grey animation. Let's face it, if everything is dark and grey, then you don't have to put much work into the backgrounds and the details. I associate this animation style with cheap crap. It is tiring to watch a 116 minute film that is almost all dark and grey from the beginning to the end. I really felt like I got cheated after watching this. I hope the upcoming movie is not a total cop-out and rip- off of this great character.
