I liked it even though the villain was kinda weak. Benedict is very good as the one time arrogant doctor.

Doctor Strange has astounding visual effects, and Benedict Cumberbatch, needless to say, was excellent, but with the premise being all about the supernatural, they get it wrong and so the movie is pointless. At times they get going on some truths, which are quite self-evident, but then they stop when they apparently get too close to the actual supernatural reality, namely, God. Additionally, they use certain commonly-used religious terminology and phrases to describe things which are quite different, and so it can be quite misleading. Also, there is lots of talk about the multiverse, the truth of which is debatable. Obviously, if there is one multiverse, it is the universe (uni - one). There may be more than one "world" (whatever definition is given of 'world') or many galaxies in the universe, but since it is still considered a unified thing, talk of a "multiverse" seems purposeless. All in all, I was extremely disappointed with the movie.

Not my kind of movie despite the great BC. Annoying talking description - maybe I hit the wrong key, instead of captions I got a voice. Into the movie for 10 minutes & out.

I don't usually watch superhero and comics based movies, but there was Benedict Cumberbatch, so gave it a try... Amazing 3D effects, loved Cumberbatch in this role, loved how he played the superhero role with that hint of irony on the superhero world. Really worth the time. Shall watch it again.

Visually appealing. Pretty much Inception as a superhero movie.

Watched it first at the theatre, enjoyed enough to rewatch on dvd. Benedict cumbersome (sigh - thanks, autocorrect) is really good here, and there's other good actors, the jokes are well timed and a lot more intelligent than, say, the latest Thor movie. Visually amazing, but it bothers me that they did the same thing as Inception (is that a Thing now? Arrgh) Plotwise, well, Marvel. One of the better superhero movies, worth watching and my friends liked it too.

I feel that Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job as Doctor Strange and has some of the best settings and special effects in the MCU.

Plot was way over my head - but there were some spot on spiritual truths to enjoy - and all kinds of fabulous action and dialogue! Fun for the whole family...

Tons of quotes already populated in IMDb as this one:

The Ancient One: You think you know how the world works? You think that this material universe is all there is? What is real? What mysteries lie beyond the reach of your senses? At the root of existence, mind and matter meet. Thoughts form reality. This universe is only one of an infinite number. Worlds without end; some benevolent and life-giving, others filled with malice and hunger. Dark places where powers older than time lie, ravenous and waiting. Who are you in this vast multiverse, Mr. Strange?
