A simply sensational superhero who happens to be magic...
Need an actor to play a brilliant, emotionally cold character? Benedict Cumberbatch is your go-to guy. So he’s perfect for Marvel superhero Doctor Strange, an aloof, arrogant neurosurgeon who becomes a powerful sorcerer. A car crash damages the nerves in Strange’s hands, so his
quest for a cure brings him to the attention of The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), who teaches him the art of sorcery. The ensuing adventure boasts truly dazzling visuals, but it’s Cumberbatch who makes this work. He’s sardonic and funny, but even more impressively, when it comes to casting spells, he pulls off the occult mumbojumbo with real panache. Dir: Scott Derrickson 2016, 12, 120min
