Doctor Strange


Directed by Scott Derrickson

Rating: ******

Doctor Strange as, well, a doctor.

Benedict Cumberbatch
Plays Doctor Strange,
A brilliant surgeon—
Not the one with the cane.

This one’s a cripple
Of a different kind.
He has lost hand function,
But not his mind.

A car crash made him
A bum overnight,
So he went to Tibet
To learn how to fight.

An unkempt Doctor Strange seeks the mysteries of the universe.

They teach him to teleport
And to pass through dimensions,
And other strange things
That I think I won’t mention.

He steals the technology
To travel through time
And become the most powerful
Man of his time.

He battles some bad guys
Who had also trained there.
They do similar things
Without quite the same flair.

This more serious film
Is lacking the humour
That brought out the best
In Ant-Man far sooner.

He who shall not be named. (Who is this guy?)

In addition,
There’s far too much CGI
That we cannot take it
Too seriously-ly.

I’m giving this movie
A reasonable four.
Doctor Strange, the character,
Has a lot more in store.
