This was pretty much an intro movie on this character. Like all the other films, Doctor Strange connects and crossovers to all those other Marvel films, one which was named in the film was Avengers. But, of course, there are more connections. The storyline/plot flowed smoothly as it told the story of Dr. Stephen Strange, and his difficult and painful journey to becoming Dr. Strange.
Well, the cinematography and effects, I guess, was mind-blowing. The illusions of the twisting, folding, and inverting of places, space, and time, was incredibly dizzying. Almost went cross-eyed...haha! But, it did its job in getting viewers (well, me) "hypnotized" into the movie.
Again, Doctor Strange sets up, yet another storyline, another character into the Marvel Universe. Anyways, I thought Doctor Strange had all the elements that fans would expect for a Marvel film.
