‘Doctor Strange’ Initial Reviews Nearly Flawless

We say nearly, but not perfect. After all, the current Rottentomatoes score is only 96%. Sure, these are just the first reviews of the film, but it’s heartening at least to see that Marvel’s most courageous film (stylistically) is being received well by movie critics. Here’s a sample of what some of the critics have to say:

“Doctor Strange is thrilling in the way a lot of other Marvel movies are. But what makes it unique is that it’s also heady in a way most Marvel movies don’t dare to be.

“A kaleidoscope of weirdness and innovative visual effects successfully introduce the newest Marvel superhero in director/co-writer Scott Derrickson’s brilliantly bizarre Doctor Strange.

At its best it’s a consciousness-expanding head trip of fantastic proportions, and at its worst it’s merely an entertaining superhero movie.

The acting, the visual fireworks and Michael Giacchino’s distinctive, Eastern-influenced score all go a long way toward disguising the fact that we are once again watching an origin story, and one that seems even a bit more perfunctory than usual.

It’s a tremendously engaging and likeable superhero ride, in which the classiest of casts show they know exactly where to take it seriously - and where to inject the fun.
