If you crossed the basic story of The Shadow mix it with the logic of The Matrix and add the visuals of Inception you get Doctor Strange. I love the acting, story and ideas of the first half of this movie and then...It turned into a Marvel superhero movie, complete with empty action and visual spectacle. Benedict Cumberbatch & Tilda Swinton are great but the dialogue and story hinder their performances. Mads Mikkelsen's talents are terribly under utilized. It was nice to see Scott Adkins appear in a large budget film again. The cloak from Spawn seems to make an appearance here as well tho this time for unfunny comedic moments. The climax was pretty lame and anticlimactic, but I still liked this better than Captain America: Civil War.
