Too often, one gets their hopes up and is disappointed by a film that has been built into a giant by its fans. However, Doctor Strange surprisingly lived up to the hype. I am not saying it was perfect, however, on the scale of films, I rank it solidly higher on the Marvel spectrum than Civil War. The acting was solid, though there were certain characters who were less developed than I wished. The special effects were the best part of the film, dazzling the eye (especially in 3D).
