This film was spectacular, it allowed me to see a different dimension of the Marvel Universe, one that I didn’t know existed. There were no superhuman powers, no cliches, there was no expectations that weren’t met -I didn’t even know what to expect as I weren’t familiar with Doctor Strange outside of a few pictures in my Tumblr feed. To watch it in 3D was such a great experience as I feel it really brought the story to life.
I loved that Doctor Strange is an accessible character from the Marvel Universe, there’s a bit of the character’s story in all of us. What I took away from the film was that anything can be achieved, obstacles overcome and with the right time and dedication, you can master anything if you study and train hard enough. I’m a big fan of all things esoteric and astrophysics but to see it played out in a Marvel film was awesome. For the first time I felt as though I didn’t have to have some extraterrestrial experience to actually become immersed in the film. There’s mention of chakras, astral bodies, the laws of nature and the power of the mind. It made me want to get deep into some of the books on such subjects and study them when I got home.
I recommend everyone go and watch it because even if you just want to see some great special effects and action in 3D with a great storyline featuring a character outside of the X-Men, Avengers and Spider Man, you couldn’t go and see a better film. Maybe you want to see a different side of Marvel rather than the same mutant type storyline. If so this is the story of someone who found his moment of clarity in the depths of darkness and rose above it to help defend humanity against the evil forces. He doesn’t do it with superpowers, powers that are beyond the means of anyone else but using the knowledge acquired through dedicating himself to mastering his own mind. Phenomenal.
