Superhero movies usually aren't my thing, but Dr. Strange was one that I was looking forward to seeing. I love his world of magic and mayhem, which is so different from other films. It blends the super-hero elements with magic and martial arts. In this film, Dr. Strange is a neurosurgeon whose life is changed forever after he's in a horrible accident. In order to save his career, he visits a remote village in search of a cure. He gets more than he bargained for, and soon finds himself fighting on the side of righteousness in the battle against and evil villain. The movie shows us the The Eye of Agamotto, Cloak of Levitation, and the Sanctum Sanctorum and they are all spectacular.
This was such an amazing film. It was even better than I excepted. The cast is perfect and the special effects are vivid and lifelike. It really transports you into the strange world of Dr. Strange. The blu-ray set also includes lots of great bonus extras including behind the scenes looks at the making of the movie. If you'd like to grab a copy of this exciting Bluray for yourself, they are available now in stores nationwide, and online at Amazon.
