Review:

This was my first time on IMAX and I actually did not know about Doctor Strange so I went into it fully open-minded.

And you know what… This was actually pretty good! Granted, some things were not very realistic and the character development was much too quick in certain parts but overall this was very well achieved.

The movie is reminiscent of Inception and Matrix and I absolutely loved the first scenes, featuring the Ancient One.

Cumburbatch played this character wonderfully. He is witty and egocentric and even though there is development to the character he never ceases to be true to himself.
Some of the humorous moments are simply hilarious. He seems to have been born for this part, much like Iron Man seems to have been created for Robert Downey Jr.

All the other actors performed brilliantly as well, though. Tilda Swinson was simply amazing and her interactions with Cumberbatch were so much fun and awe-striking.
Rachel McAdams did great as well; it’s not easy to shine in such a roll but she was very good and believable.
Mads Mikkelsen as the villain was also superb. I had not expected such a humane approach to him.

I had a great time watching Doctor Strange and definitely recommend it.
