Movie review: 'Doctor Strange' good for a movie viewer's soul

Action, suspense and humor dosed well


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is a handsome, successful and arrogant neurosurgeon. He's so successful that many people beg him to perform their surgeries. However, when it comes to people skills Strange fails. You'll get to know his personality in the first 20 minutes and then the film shifts to the worst day of Strange's life. While speeding on a road in his hot sports car, Strange drives off of a cliff  and severely damages the nerves in his hands. His career as a surgeon is destroyed but he doesn't want to believe it. He seeks healing from a spiritual guru in India and that's when Doctor Strange finds that his greatest gift isn't in the natural world. He goes from super doctor to super hero, but not without a struggle.

This movie maintains a great pace with action, humor and mind altering scenes. The down side to this movie, some of the special effects seem more than a little out of date. However, the upside is, if you want a movie that is easy to follow, has good acting and doesn't drag; you'll love this movie.

You will grow to love Doctor Strange as he transforms into a good guy.
