In the beginning I was not a fan of the good Doctor, but I think that may have been the point. He was an egotistical bastard who treated those he loved as if they were nothing more than crap on the bottom of his show. Even after he loses the use of his hands, he doesn't accept that his life is nothing more than a shadow of what it once was, traveling to exotic places in search of answers to his problems. What he finds is a world of magic and fantasy, where he can devour all the knowledge, but not really understand the power he is developing. He continues to be egotistical until the big bad comes and he must decide between running and saving himself, or doing what he never wanted to do and become a hero.
I really enjoyed a lot of this movie, especially the humor in it. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and really it reminded me of the first Iron Man movie, the one where I fell in love with the character of Iron Man. I can only hope that if these movies continue they keep the humor, which Iron Man has lost, and the fun of the character.
One of the main issues I had with this movie was the amount of CGI (which I understand) in it. I would have liked more real life situations and less magical moving of things. Also if you suffer from moderate to severe motion sickness you may have an issue with some of the movement. I had to look away from the screen a couple of times because I was getting a little nauseous. The scenery was quite beautiful and the action scenes were also wonderful, but it did feel a little over the top a few times.
I recommend this movie to anyone who likes superhero, and especially if you are into superheros with flaws. DOCTOR STRANGE doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is.
