Dr.Strange is the tale of Dr. Stephen Strange, a psychiatrist known for his compassion and caring who is drawn into an other worldly battle between The Sorcerer Supreme Lindmer and the evil witch Morgan Le Fay. Strange is destined to inherit the powers of Lindmer but is he ready for the challenge?
This film has very little to do with the Marvel mythology behind the origin story of Strange, going for a good guy feel other than the arrogant doctor we all know from the comics. Compared to the feel of The Incredible Hulk series, Dr. Strange really didn't work. For the most part this film felt like one of the lesser popular Hammer Horror films, going for a dark supernatural feel which comes across more like a Flash Gordon style parody. It looks awful, it looks cheap and the acting is very bad throughout. There is very little in this film that could even be classed as enjoyable and to be honest this hasn't aged well in the slightest.
I really wanted to like this film, even with the cheap effects I thought this could be a decent enough, campy watch but the whole film just dragged. You can see why this didn't get picked up for a TV series and in all honesty would have slipped into obscurity if it wasn't for the up coming film. Give this one a miss, save you money for the new film.
