Doctor Strange

Spoiler Alert!

This movie was great. I liked it. Insert heart, heart, heart here. The story was very interesting. He developed his inherent power. He can manipulate time. I admire his character because he is very smart. He was able to conquer the villain in the movie. I thought that was it. They will be defeated. Surprise, surprise. Due to his intelligence and wit, he was able to overcome the villain. A usurper of worlds. Doctor strange manipulated time such that, he kept rewinding what has happened with the knowledge of said villain. So the villain was irritated. Doctor Strange put into the villain's mind that he is Dr. Strange's prisoner because he kept repeating the part where the villain killed him. However he comes alive again and repeating the process over and over again. So the villain bargained with Doctor Strange played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The villain is Eternity.

Doctor Strange told Eternity what he wanted. He wanted it to take Kaecilius into its world, leave earth and never come back. Kaecilius is a sorcerer who wanted more power. He went to the dark side and used dark magic. He left the group of sorcerers. He destroyed the time loop in Hongkong. However, Doctor Strange used the eye (a magic stone) to rewind the time so Hongkong is not destroyed.

The special effects were great especially the part where buildings were folding over just like "Inception". What was lacking was more of these. I found it lacking.

There was a funny part. The part when Doctor Strange found his cape. The cape seems to have a mind of its own. It helped Doctor Strange fight his enemies. Then there was also a time when he fixed his cape at the neck, the cape kept touching his face. Doctor Strange said "Stop it". That was funny.

Kaecilius, another villain in the movie shown below.

Eternity shown below.

The sorcerer supreme or the ancient one played by Tilda Swinton was killed in the movie. 

She was supposed to be a male Tibetan monk as depicted in the comics.

There was a scene after the credits which showed Doctor Strange talking to Thor. Thor was drinking a large mug of beer. The mug kept refilling even if Thor already finished the beer. Doctor Strange must have used his rewinding power again. In this scene, Thor was asking Doctor Strange for help in looking for his father Odin. I'm assuming this was for the sequel. I can't wait for the next one. I rate this movie 4 stars.
