A terrible car crash put an end to the career of a successful neurosurgeon, Doctor Strange. Desperate, he goes on a journey in search of healing and reveals incredible ability to transform space and time. Now he is the link between parallel dimensions, and his mission is to protect the inhabitants of the Earth and to counteract Evil, no matter what form it takes.
About the film a few words:
“Doctor Strange” is a film that incorporates everything that is so appealing to the viewer and is desired by him in the cinema. A brave hero who achieves everything himself. Scientific “magic” and magic science. Logic, not overstepping the line of delirium. Humor on irony and discrepancy of the situation. And professional actors in the person of Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen and others.
The fourteenth heroic tape of the movie “Marvel” introduces a new hero with the old charm of “Sherlock” and Cumberbatch playing it, perfected by the fantasy of Christopher Nolan in “The Beginning” (2010), but with a new ability not yet hand-picked – to control time and space. To do this, Mister, that is, Doctor Strange, needs to abandon his own world, with which he is helped by a terrible car accident that takes away from a celebrity in medicine the state, work, position and most importantly – the ego. Its decline and opens the hero to the “new reality beyond the boundaries of consciousness.”
The good purpose, ambiguity of the polar parties, the importance of the inner core, the heroic choice and mysticism, deservedly nominated for visual effects on the Oscar, the Guild of Actors and the British Academy. Bonus is Beyonce’s song, a faithful cloak and cultivation of knowledge, training, forward movement and medical profession useful for his audience. The director of horrors “Rebellion from hell 5: Hell” (2000), “The Six Demons of Emily Rose” (2005) or “Deliver us from the evil one” (2014) seemed tired of the alternation of the stupor of his heroes with their own fear. Why is Scott Derrickson entertained with irony, movement and friendliness in full and takes the viewer out of the heroic dynamics of MARVEL only once. When all the time in space slows down almost to a full stop, so that the heroes can finally calmly say the most important thing that it is impossible to depict in action. Or just much longer than two hours and more than $ 165 million budget.
It’s about spirituality in the broad and narrow sense of the word. Which attracted in this and to this role the busy actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who once spent a whole year in a Buddhist monastery in Darjeeling, in India, and today many meditators to “calm down, escape from the busy life, focus on becoming more Kind and considerate of other people. ” From the off-scale coolness of the former “Sherlock” here, besides the charm of the actor himself, there is not a smirk or grin. Only human arrogance, inherent in all reasonably and deserved successful people.
Tilda Swinton, who successfully replaced the comic book of the elderly man, also does not show hypocrisy, which she had under “Constantine” (2005), and that boringness when there was “Something is wrong with Kevin” (2011). It is as cosmic as ever, even in life, but in a new and ambiguous and multifaceted way. Probably, therefore, Rachel McAdams is so fascinated by the contrast alongside her, from which I do not have to wait for another clever deception Irene Adler (Sherlock Holmes Guy Ritchie). In opposition to all the hero Mads Mikkelsen is static in the image and the chosen side, but in the finale deserves sincere regret because of his fatal error.
“Doctor Strange” is a film that will not surprise or impress you unless you are too serious when watching this kind of movie, or more prone to advertising and enthusiastic reviews already looked at. Because to resist the overstated expectations of an individual viewer can not even one of the most thoughtful tape. Especially the one whose main function is only with fireworks and pomp to introduce the next witty hero from the comics to the screen. In this case, no negative feedback, which lists many disadvantages, does not take away from the picture the fact that MARVEL in its best traditions brings to consciousness something more important than a colorful picture, and here. Namely, that when the world collapses materially, spiritually or morally, it is always possible to resist this. Even if the hands are shaking.
