Dr Strange ( 2016) ( PG- 13) Stephen Strange is a neu­ro­sur­geon who loses his hands once he meets with an ac­ci­dent. Hav­ing learnt of a para­plegic who is able to walk again, Stephen looks out for a sorcerer An­cient One who trains him to be­come a war­rior with spe­cial pow­ers. He learns that planet earth is pro­tected from other pow­ers by a spell that is formed from three sanc­tums. As the threat of an in­va­sion presents it­self, Strange must fight against all odds to pro­tect hu­man­ity. The Mar­vel film is a reg­u­lar su­per­hero flick. Watch it for Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch's per­for­mance and some death- de­fy­ing stunts. . Du­ra­tion: 1 hr, 55 mins Genre: Ac­tion/ ad­ven­ture What’s good: Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch as Dr Strange What’s bad: The con­vo­luted plot Star­ring: Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch, Rachel Mca­dams, Chi­we­tel Ejio­for Rat­ing: Jack Reacher: Never Go Back ( 2016) ( PG- 13) Hav­ing busted a hu­man traf­fick­ing racket, for­mer mil­i­tary in­ves­ti­ga­tor Jack Reacher vis­its his old mil­i­tary head­quar­ters only to learn Ma­jor Su­san Turner, with whom he had been work­ing, has been de­tained on charges of es­pi­onage.

Du­ra­tion: 1 hr, 58 mins Genre: Ac­tion, Thriller What’s good: The ac­tion se­quences What’s bad: The plot sounds too fa­mil­iar. Plus, haven’t we seen Tom Cruise in sim­i­lar roles?
